Monday Gets No Appreciation

Especially not from me. 😆 But coffee? Coffee gets all the love. At least from me. So. It’s Monday. Right? *sigh* Again. Of course, with 52 Mondays a year, it’s bound to keep happening.

There was a week. And a weekend. And we’re facing a new week. Stuff happened. Other stuff didn’t happen. The end. Oh, there was some good stuff. And some bad stuff. Not terribly bad stuff, except for one “if not for bad luck, no luck at all” stuff.

Good stuff: Stormageddon hit a double in his game Saturday. 😀

Bad stuff: We weren’t at the game. :/

Other good stuff: I wrote new words. 🙂

Other bad stuff: I’m only about 1/2 to my word count and the book is due next week. *flail* 🤦

More good stuff: Only is cleared for vacation time so she’s going to New York City with me in July. Woot! 🎊 (that’s a confetti ball, FYI)

And in the bad/no luck category: The center diamond on my engagement ring went AWOL. I have no clue where or when exactly. I just noticed it this afternoon when one of the prongs caught on my shirt. Not only is this bad, it’s give me a big ol’ sad. 😒 😥

In other news, my Cards are playing better. Live PD was awesome but they’re taking the next two weekends off. Time to catch up on episodes I missed. I finished relistening/listening to Christine Feehan’s Shadow series. The newest release, SHADOW WARRIOR, was okay. Not sure what I’m going to listen to next. I really need to focus on words. Loki and Jake are cute and awesome, in that order. Boone and Adidas remain mellow. And that’s pretty much my life in 300 words or less. How was your week/weekend? Looking forward to anything coming up this week?

    Last week was essentially the same for me. This will will be completely different. The reason? I start a new job today–a customer service rep for a major home entertainment company with a call center in Tulsa. I’m hesitant to say more until I learn their social media policy. The best part of the new position is that (at least for the first 12 weeks) I’m working a Monday-Friday, 8 AM-5PM schedule and it’s all sitting down. Maybe with my evenings being consistently free now and not being worn out from being on my feet for eight hours I’ll be able to get back into writing.

      That’s wonderful news, KB! Congrats!!! Having a set schedule is always a good thing, along with less physical stress and strain. Crossing fingers on the writing!!! ❤

  2. Ugh, Monday. I am so totally not prepared for it to be Monday. :gulps more coffee: Yay for Stormy and new words! Yay for your NYC trip! And I’m so sorry you lost one of your diamonds. =o(

    There was a weekend. It rained copious amounts. I spent the time inside, reading and watching TV and doing marketing stuffs. No elephants were munched upon. I feel like a big, fat, lazy toad. They’re holding a meeting this Thursday about my good fishing park and we’re probably going to that to see if they’ve decided to keep it open at the end of this year. And to put our two cents in, for what they’re worth. They say they want input, but I’m not holding my breath they actually give a hoot.

    • Silver James says:

      Considering I wore the rings for 36 years and did some crazy stuff with my hands and never took them off, I’m a little surprised I haven’t lost it before now. It’ll get replaced eventually. Yeah, we got the tail end of the rain y’all got hammered with. Good days for staying inside and being situated on a hill.

      Ugh re: the park. If they close it, will you still be able to get in to fish? That totally sucks. Too bad the homeowners’ association can’t take it over as far as like clean-up and stuff so y’all could access it. Maybe lock it but give y’all keys. 😀 And bureaucrats will be bureaucrats. Sadly. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

      I’ve got to write like 4K words a day to get this puppy done. I think my brain is going to break. Gotta get to work. Soon-ish.

Got something to say?
