Yup. It’s Monday. And I had to start the day with no coffee. I’m currently surviving on the sustenance a couple of cans of Diet Coke provide. Why you ask? Jake and I are back at VA while Lawyer Guy has another procedure. Fun times. Not. Anyway, as you can probably guess, I actually wrote the blog last night and set it up to post at the usual time this morning.
Last week happened. There was a weekend. We had company. That is is all.
Okay, not quite. We had Stormy for a couple of days and then his school started. We picked him up after school on Friday and he stayed with us until Sunday afternoon while his parents had a child-free weekend. Those are important and Stormy is normally pretty good. I remember now, though, why I’m not a big fan of cartoons. I can only do so much time watching Shawn the Sheep or Rocky and Bullwinkle or…or…take your pick of cartoons. He loves them all. He also loves balogna and cheese sandwiches. Whatever.
Wow, the Oklahoma Green Country Little League Softball team took Nationals! What an amazing group of girls. They went undefeated through the whole tournament. That includes regionals! The team is 85% Native American representing 4 tribes. They came together for only 2 practives before hitting the regionals in Texas, which they swept. Then they swept their pool and the semis and finals. It was fun to watch. In Little League Baseball news, there’s an awesome kid from Texas–the only girl in this years LLWS/Baseball tournament. Ella Bruning made a splash playing catcher. Turns out, she pitches, too, and tossed a no-hitter. How about them apples!?!? Girls Rool! Boys…well, they’re pretty cool even if they might drool a little too. 😉
I’m still doing the marathon listen to Ilona Andrews” Kate Daniels series. Kate’s world is crazy so I’m totally relating right now. At least she gets to kick ass and take names. I’m currently living vicariously through her.
Writing. Yeah…about that. Okay, I did get some scenes written but I’m so far behind schedule on projects. I just can’t get in the “write” headspace. I’m a professional. I know what I should be doing. My brain? Yeah…nope. It wants nothing to do with any of the projects, even when I promise Iffy that she can wreck havoc. Ah well.
Not much else going on. It’s hot again. But this is to be expected in August in Oklahoma. I totally sympathize with those in the West who are suffering heat, drought, and fires. And the NE for the hurricane. Go home, Mother Nature, you’re drunk! Or, as a friend of mine pointed out, “The world is drunk too.”
On that note, I’m off. Oh! I’m taking part in Long and Short Reviews Anniversary party tomorrow. I’ll be posting the link in tomorrow’s blog but I thought I’d give you a heads up! Anybody do anything interesting over the weekend? Good book you’re reading? New recipe? Family fun time? Tell me something good.
Argh. No coffee is just cruel. I hope LG’s procedure went well. And that Jake had fun at the VA. And that you found it tolerable. Yay for Stormy time, even if you did have to experience too many cartoons. Cool about the softball team and the girl in little league. Yay for good books! Boo for scattered brain. I think it’s the summer. Neither of us should schedule projects for temps this hot. I hope your participation in the anniversary party goes well.
The weekend was a wash. Nothing occurred of any import. My friend and her Hubs were too wiped-out, so they took the whole weekend off. I did finally get back to making edit notes again after being a toad all last week. I’ve really got to get back to some sort of consistent effort here. I went to the lake on Friday, just to look around and take pics. Refresh my soul a little. I can’t wait til it gets cool enough to fish again, but they’re predicting a warmer than normal next three months. Blerg.
Blerg is right! I hope the long-range forecast is wrong!!! Yeah, you and I do not “appreciate” hot, humid weather. LOL Sorry your plans were a bust. That happens sometimes and yeah, I totally get the headspace caused by it. Let’s hope we both get back on track this weekend!
