Thanks for the Chat!
Quote Du Jour:
Woke up, fell out of bed,
Dragged a come across my head.
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
And looking up, I noticed I was late.

Thanks to everyone who came to chat last night (even my mommy came!). It was a lot of fun! We talked about everything from writing to opera to books and movies. Thanks, too, to Angela who asked lots of interesting questions. 🙂
Iâ€™m sleepy today. I didnâ€™t want to get out of bed. Husband had to drive to Oklahoma City this morning so he was up early. (Why does 5:30 seem so much earlier than 6? Itâ€™s only a half an hour, but it seems like itâ€™s too early.) So he was up this morning, turning on all the lights and making lots of noise. I buried my head under my pillow while he got ready to go. Youâ€™d think he could keep it down some. 😐
And, for whatever reason, little boy had a potty accident. First one in weeks. It was so bad I had to put him in the tub and this was about 30 minutes before the chat. So I had to hurry. I got him all cleaned up, washed his hair, and got him in his pjs, even though it was a mite early. Then this morning, he had totally wet the bed â€“ something he hasnâ€™t done since he stopped wearing pull-ups. So that made for a fun morning, getting his sopping wet clothes off of him, getting him cleaned up, and dressed. At least he was in a good mood this morning. That makes it a little easier.
Heâ€™s a good kid, really. Heâ€™s happy and he self-entertains for the most part, being an only child. He loves to play with his daddy though and when heâ€™s out of town, he expects me to do the same. It just doesnâ€™t work that way. I promised him a movie tonight when we get home, which means Iâ€™ll have to see one of our many Disney DVDs for the umpteenth time. Thatâ€™s okay by me.
We tried to watch X-Men (the first one) the other night, but it was a little intense for him. So we had to turn it off. I forgot about some of the parts being a little scary. He watches Spiderman, though, with no problem. Itâ€™s becoming quite clear he likes the superhero movies. In fact, heâ€™s been asking to go see Fantastic 4. Weâ€™ll probably wait for DVD (and it has the very cute Ioan Gruffudd (he was Lancelot in King Arthur).
And Iâ€™m excited to know the second and third Pirates of the Caribbean are being filmed as I write this. Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, and Keira Knightly are all returning for both movies with release dates of 2006 and 2007. I canâ€™t wait!
On the writing frontâ€¦ I didnâ€™t do much. I started an issue of the romance serial, but didnâ€™t quite â€œfeelâ€ it so I put it aside. I managed to write about 1000 words on the new WIP and do some edits. I did a quick read-through, so I know what holes I have to fill in. Not much progress. Not good. 😕
