Quote of the Day:
â€œThe web of our life is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together.â€
Allâ€™s Well That Ends Well, Act IV, Scene II, William Shakespeare
So. I cooked again last night. I made fried pork chops. I think that had to be one of my favorite meals when I was a kid growing up. Because I was lazy and didnâ€™t want to take the time to make real mashed potatoes, I made instant. They are SO not as good as the real deal. Thereâ€™s nothing like real mashed potatoes. Even though Iâ€™m a big believer of cooking out of a box, I am NOT, however, a fan of instant mashed potatoes.
I decided yesterday I would polish up the first three chapters of the historical, finish the synopsis, and go ahead and submit it to my editor. I figure I should go ahead and get a feel for it and see if itâ€™s worth finishing. I worked on the synopsis off and on, never really getting to that completion point I wanted to get to. I tried to work on the book last night, but instead found myself watching four episodes of Sex and the City. What can I say â€“ Iâ€™m a junkie.
Then I shut off the show at 11 and tried to go to sleep. I laid there until 12:30 when I was just starting to doze. You know â€“ getting into that happy placeâ€¦ when my husbandâ€™s cell phone rang. Work was calling. Again! ARGH!
Finally got back to sleep and had weird-ass dreams. Didnâ€™t want to wake up this morning and I feel almost hungover. A sleep hangover. Thatâ€™s like the worst.
Anyhooâ€¦Sweetie Boy had â€œPajama Dayâ€ at school. Since the weather is now frigid (instead of warm like yesterday!) I didnâ€™t want to send him to school in his super-warm footy pjs. Instead, I put jeans on him and his other pj top. As we were getting ready to leave, he said, â€œMom, you forgot to change my shirt.â€ When I reminded him it was PJ Day, he said, â€œOh, right right.â€
Must dash. Things to do.
