Last Monday Meh

You know how you think you’ve done something and then you realize you didn’t do it? Yeah…that… I could have sworn I wrote a blog for this morning and set it up yesterday. Only…I didn’t. I have mentioned that it sucks to get old, right?

Moving on. There was a week and a weekend. The week got off to a discombobulated start because Monday wasn’t “Monday.” It was Stormageddon Comes to Jammie’s House for the day. Ha had a lot of coloring to do for homework so we sat at the dining room table to color–him working on his homework, me digging out an “adult” coloring book a friend sent me one year. It was a fun way to spend a few hours but totally messed up my head on which day of the week it was.

The breaking news all last week was that FIGHTING FOR ELENA and the the five other books in the BOH: Tarpley VFD series are up for preorder. There’s always last minute stuff to do–updating the website, advertising and social media. All that fun stuff. That put a dent in my writing brain so not many words fixed or written on BETRAYAL last week. It happens.

There was a weekend. I vegged out. Wonky headspace is not condusive to much of anything.

I caught up on some LIVE PD shows DVR’d. I watch most of them “live” but due to KP duty and critter feeding duties and often falling asleep, I don’t always get to see the whole thing. We DVR so I can zip through to the parts I missed. I did some of that. Yesterday, I caught EXPETIDION BIGFOOT on the travel channel. It wasn’t cheesy and actually took a very scientific slant. Amazing tech stuff was used and some trul creepy moments. The show ran a first-season marathon because the finale aired last night. I’ll keep an eye out for season 2. I also did the first two episodes of 9-1-1 Lone Star on On Demand and then set to DVR the upcoming episode. There’s a lot that made me scratch my head and wince (firefighting stuffs) but it stars Rob Lowe. He’s becoming a bit of a silver fox. 😉

I’m still listening my way through Jennifer Ashely’s Shifters Unbound series. This is only my second time through the series and it’s been since 2018 so there are parts I remember and parts I don’t so it’s all good. I’m waiting for GOLDEN IN DEATH, #50 in JD Robb’s series starring futuristic cop Eve Dallas. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read and listened to all those books. Totally my favorite of all time!

On a sad note, I’m not an NBA fan but my heart goes out to the Bryant family and the others who died in the helicopter crash yesterday. Heartbreaking. 😢

Wow. I had more “news” than I thought I did and now I’m in the mindset to get to work. Have to run some errands today so I’ll be in and out of that headspace but that’s okay. It’s a new “work” week and it’s filled with possibilities. What’s on your list for this week?

  1. Wow, I totally brainfarted out about stopping here yesterday. Not sure what the heck happened. Blerg. The brain, she’s not quite up to speed lately. Yes, getting older does suck. Yay for coloring time with Stormy! Gah, why can’t work stuff and writing stuff exist in the same space? Yay for reading!

    Well, it’s obvious that Monday was a wash here, too. Can we start the week over today? I really need to get my head around and get some work done. It’s almost the end of January, for petesakes, and the resolve is faltering. Back at it today! :whipcrack: You know, after copious amounts of coffee. ;o)

      Yeah…we had a sewer back-up that took out our two main bathrooms and the kitchen. Luckily, our half bath is on a separate line. Plumber couldn’t get here until today. Yesterday, it was almost 70. Today? Rain and cold. Blerg. Nothing like doing dishes in the lavatory but at least we can “go potty.” So yeah, I’m all for a do-over week! Hang in there. We might be treading water at the moment but I remember how to dog paddle. I’m gonna get right on that. 😉
