Okay so… for whatever reason… I’ve been super lazy lately. Usually, when the alarm goes off, I hit snooze once and then I’m up and going. The last few days, I’ve hit it several times and laid my ass in bed until the last possible moment I had to get up.
Probably because I keep the thermostat on Meatlocker and bury myself under my heavy blankets and between my flannel sheets.
Yeah, that’s the only explanation I can come up with.
Had the Sweetie Boy last night and about 15 minutes before time to go, he had a total meltdown. I mean, a HUGE fit. He was playing games on the Internet at Cartoon Network, and I told him he had to get off to do his homework and then we had to go. He totally freaked out. I had a very irate kid on my hands. And then he had another tantrum when it was time to do his homework. He threw the pencil across the room.
There is a reason why God makes children so cute and lovable. It’s because He knows we won’t kill them when they act like that.
We pushed through it though, after I threatened him within an inch of his life and told him if he was going to act that way he could FORGET about having computer time EVER. Mean Mamma, right? But he straighted up, did his homework, and was just fine after that.
I think part of the problem was he was exhausted and not feeling well. His cheeks were rosy all evening and finding something for dinner for him took nearly an act of Congress to make the decision.
So a very frustrating evening on the heels of a frustrating day.
And all I really want to do is WRITE. Had no time at all do to write even one teeny word. Sadness.
The Man called me at the office today and when I answered and he asked how I was, I told him I was frustrated. He said he could tell and then called me “baby doll” which, you’d think, would straighten out the attitude a bit. Instead I picked on him. And of course he picked right back and by the time we hung up, I was laughing pretty hard at his dumb ass.
Ah bliss, right?
Anyway… I’ve picked up the dragon story and put the second MAGIC book on hold for now. What I have so far of the dragon book has been well received so I’m just going to keep on keeping on. I just need to write the blasted thing. That’s all. I have been writing almost every day – even if it is just a paragraph or two. This is excellent progress for me, the one who was ready to just QUIT writing altogether over the holidays. (Yes, I know – it was a moment of depression and weakness and “I suck”ness but I got over it and I’m still writing. I didn’t quit after all.)
I think I’ve decided to nix the subscriptions to The Writer and Writer’s Digest because they aren’t telling me anything new these days and I don’t seem to have the attention span to sit down and read them anyway. I’m keeping RomanticTimes though becuase I enjoy flipping through there and seeing what’s new hitting the bookshelves.
Another fun-filled day is ahead of me. Let’s hope it’s less frustrating! 🙂
