So…Another Monday

I’m so freaking tired of waking up between 5 and 6 a.m. and not getting back to sleep or grabbing a nap. Sucks. And I’m tired despite copious amounts of coffee. There was a weekend. And week passed. Here’s a summation of my recent life.

I swear to God every channel was running the wedding on Saturday. Even ESPN. (Okay, not really, but it felt like it.) I mean, I’m all for romance. I’m a freaking romance author but seriously? It didn’t need 24 hours of coverage. I like Prince Harry. A lot. The guy is a certifiable hero. I’m glad he found someone who loves him. But I don’t need a play-by-play of their every move. Just me and I’m not disparaging anyone who was all agog over the proceedings More power to you. Just not my cup of tea and it would have been nice to find regular news, weather, and stuff.

OU is going to the NCAA D1 Super Regionals. OSU is out. 😦 Sixteen teams will be whittled down to eight and then it’s the Women’s College World Series. I remember when we used to get series tickets. The Only and I were out there for every game day after day. I also remember when she got to play in a tournament at Hall of Fame stadium (where the WCWS is played) and her name was up on the scoreboard when she came up to bat. Fun times. Stormageddon starts Tee Ball this week, beginning with a mini-camp this evening. I’m picking up up at day care and running him over to meet Only after she gets off work. Fun times!

Lucifer is still cancelled. I keep hoping for good news there. The last two episodes in this season almost broke me! Seriously. I haven’t deleted them yet because talk about The Black Moment™! As a writer, to be able to capture all the feels? Yeah, I’ll be rewatching, especially the finale. I’m a mess every time I do, but hey…if it adds that kind of emotional depth the my own black moments? I’m there!

My Cardinals were up and down. The season is still young yet but man, it seems to be either feast or famine when it comes to the bats. If it drives me a little bonkers, I can imagine what it’s doing to Mike Matheny, the Cards’ manager.

Live PD is on hiatus until June 1st. Ah well. I have those to episodes of Lucifer to keep watching. πŸ˜‰

I’m sort of on hold on my reading. Two books come out the 29th, and I’ll want to re-listen to one of the series but that’ll only take a few days. The other one means lots of books to listen to and I may hold off. If I can get into the new release without having to backtrack, I’ll do that. I may wait until it’s available from the library. That’s were I got the other books in that series. In the meantime, I’m doing a back and forth re-listen to Patricia Briggs’s Mercy Thompson and Alpha/Omega series, getting them more or less in the correct timeline since the two series sort of run concurrently. Comfort reads. I’m all about the comfort reads at the moment.

In Digger’s story, I painted the characters into a corner and it took a few days to find a window to open so the paint would dry. I think I found a way out but my beta readers will have to let me know when I turn th ebook over to them. I didn’t work this weekend because Friday night, I cooked 20 pounds of bacon (200+ slicses) and over 100 slices of breakfast sausage. My feet and legs were killing me. Saturday was the pancake breakfast and craft show at the Post, hence me frying all the breakfast meats. Lawyer Guy and I spent Saturday night and Sunday with our feet up and doing nothin’! We’re gettin’ old and needed the recovery time. πŸ˜†

That’s pretty much my life at the moment. Today is new words and then Tee Ball. Life is good. What’s good in your life these days?

  1. I can’t believe I missed this yesterday. In fact, I stopped back here now to see if you replied to the comment I was sure I left yesterday. Derp. I’m still around here somewhere. I still love you. I’m just scatterbrained sometimes. :hugs:
