Quote du Jour:
â€œWell, I don’t know how you people do it. All that emotional chow-chow. It’s exhausting.â€
–Samantha, Sex and the City
Today proves to be another day in paradise (said tongue-in-cheek). Another day where we get up at oh-damn-thirty, schlep to the airport to drop off the husband, and then back to the house to get ready for work.
Another week has begun. Another long weekend is over.
Itâ€™s depressing, really.
I have nothing to show for the weekend. Except a really snazzy pair of sunglasses and a horrendous allergy attack. There were a lot of things I should have done this weekend. Like clean up my messy desk. I did manage to finish the laundry finally, but I dragged that out until today. Pathetic. When I had four days to do it, I still struggled to get it done. I got no writing done (unless you call three paragraphs writing). Itâ€™s a good thing Iâ€™m finished with the serials because I would be in serious trouble otherwise.
Speaking of serials, it seems KeepItComing will be â€œon holdâ€ until September 25th. The bad news is customers donâ€™t get their ezines theyâ€™ve subscribed to. The good news is sheâ€™s not shutting down after all. I realize sheâ€™s going through a bad time and all (of which I will not go into here), but I still donâ€™t think she should be telling all of her authors in a mass email what those problems are. Theyâ€™re personal, in my humble opinion, and she should keep them to herself.
When I went through my divorce with the ex-idiot, I kept it to myself. I sure as hell didnâ€™t want to tell people what I was going through. Even now, there are only a handful of people who know what I dealt with.
Oh well. What do I know, anyway?
These allergies are really kicking my butt. Iâ€™m all medicated up but lack of sleep is making me feel run-down. Another restless night doesnâ€™t help either. Finally drifted off to sleep around midnight, trying to make my brain think about my current WIP. I heard snippets of dialog in my head, but nothing concrete. Then had to get up at 5:15 this morning to go to the airport.
I hate DH is going out of town again, but I have to say I am looking forward to the peace. When I put the baby to bed, I shut off the TV and have complete and utter silence. Itâ€™s beautiful. Except tonight, depending on how exhausted I am, I plan to stay up a little bit and watch a movie.
Wellâ€¦must dash. Itâ€™s off to work!
PS. Apparently, I’m allergic to Fungus and Ragweed. :talktohand:
