Forget just Monday. Are we done with this year yet? I’m ready for a do-over. Too bad we can’t do a Mulligan like in golf. Ah well. Welpers, there was a weekend. Stuff happened. There was also a last week. Other stuff happened. Can I go back to bed now? This is one of those mornings when there isn’t enough coffee in the world to make it all better.
So, we got lots of Stormy time last week. It was fun. T-ball, spending the night, and morning play. He’s growing so tall! And he misses school. The little bugger is way too smart. He loves spending time with his Big Daddy. I sorta get the feeling Lawyer Guy feels the same. Yeah, I’m smiling. No T-ball this week because his school is doing their yearbook signing at the same time as his game. There are lots of kids so it’s not like the team wouldn’t be able to play and since school closed early and he’s really been missing his friends, this is a great opportunity to touch base with them.
I did some organizational work on NIGHT WISH. Gah! Thank the writing gods that Scrivener has a bulletin board feature. I can make note cards with the action in a scene and then got to bulletin board mode. I can see at a glance what is going on and move the cards around to get them in the right order. Sometimes–like now!–I really wish I was linear writer. Ah well. The good news is, the stuff already written is better than I remembered. That’s a big yay. After today, I’m hoping real life will stop throwing curve balls and I can settle in to maybe actually getting some writing done. I have revisions on the Feb. ’21 Red Dirt book coming sometime in July and I have another Tarpley VFD book to write so I need to get WISH done and set free into the world. There are a couple of Cajun Wolves who are getting downright pushy about getting their stories done. 😆
TV is still a bust. I don’t really remember a thing I watched last week. It’s all just a blur of the same ol’ same ol’. Reading/listening is also slow. I did mention real life right? I’m back to my relisten of the In Death series. Can’t go wrong there but since I’ve done multiple rereads, I don’t feel any pressing need to zip through the story because I basically remember who did it. 🤷♀️ That’s okay. It’s my chicken soup series and I’m good with that.
Friday, we had a family funeral. We were glad to get home. Saturday, LG and I went to the Post to help another member clean up for a rental. I thought I’d be mopping a floor. Nope. I made the mistake of tossing in my rubber gloves and therefore drew bathroom duty. Hey, those suckers are shiny clean and disinfected–even the light switches, door handles, the the handicap bar. I’m probably there this morning as you’re reading this, waiting on the plumbers to come. Long story. LG has a zoom meeting, the gal vet taking the lead on all the restoration and reconstruction has a sick puppers. No one else could be arsed to come down and wait. I shouldn’t say that. There are a couple of them who would but their health precludes it. The healthy ones all have their thumps up their…anyway. I’m there until relieved. Then I hope to get some work done. I’m taking Jake with me and we’ll work on his basic commands because he’s ignoring them. Not to be a bad dog but because I haven’t worked on his training since the quarantine.
Sunday, I didn’t do a blasted thing but set up today’s blog, make a Starbucks run with Jake (I have stars expiring and darn if I’ll not spend them!), and debated on whether to take a nap. As of this writing, I haven’t answered the debate yet.
Life is definitely not exciting. We’re safe and healthy and that’s not too shabby, given the crazy times. I do wish I could figure out how to “save” my “personal” avatar sticker on FB. I want to use the head-exploding one as my profile pic. What’s going on–good, bad, or indifferent–in your life? Hang in there. Stay safe. Stay healthy. Stay the wonderful crazy friends that you are!
You’re one busy lady over there. Reading about all the stuff you do makes me want to go back to bed. I did that yesterday, but it didn’t help. Yay for all your happy things. Boo for being the only one available to wait for the plumbers. I hate waiting. :hugs: At least it’ll give you time to work with Jake. I hope he picks his training up again easily.
Nothing’s going on here. Staying home. Hiding from the world. Today I have to go out and get food stuffs. Since the area where my Wallyworld is located is plague central, I have to decide if I want to pick up some things at Dollar General or go to the local grocery store that gave me food poisoning and pick up everything I need. I think I can navigate the local store if I’m really careful about watching the expiration dates on stuff this time. But I’m not sure I want to risk it. It’s an interest life when you have to juggle risking food poisoning vs risking ‘rona vs going without stuff you need. Blerg.
Stay safe out there. :hugs:
*hugs* That is a tough choice! Anyway you can hold your breath long enough to shop? Yeah, yeah. I’m joking. If you are patient and stay away from people, maybe WW will be safe enough?
As for being busy, I think I liked it better when I was a slug. 🤣 Take care of yourself and here’s to a better week for all of us!
