You know those days when you keep forgetting what day of the week it actually is? Usually this happens to me on Mondays, and I’m convinced it’s Friday. 😛 Today I keep thinking it’s Tuesday, but luckily, it isn’t. Yay! Wednesday!!
We didn’t receive the letter about the middle guy’s school yet. 😦 Hoping for today. If not, I’ll call the school tomorrow to make sure it wasn’t lost in transition. I know I wrote our new address on the application, but my oldest went there, so maybe they sent it to the old address?? I’ve got to call Dr Neurocrud’s office about lab results for the girl tomorrow anyway, so I’ll just plan for an hour to make official phone calls.
Mama’s been busy this morning. Papa and I were trying to figure out the new protein skimmer for the tank. Eventually we’ll get it. I had to run to the grocery store, there was literally nothing in this house for dinner. Now I’ve got raviolis in the freezer and doggie gumbo simmering on the stove. Poor dog had a very skimpy portion left for breakfast today, so I supplemented with a whole can of sardines. Ewww. Anyone want to accept stinky slobbery kisses for the rest of the day? 😉
Oh, yeah, today was the first day for the 500 in 40. I did it!!!!!!! A little over 500 words. They aren’t the best words, and they’ll be reworked many times over, but I got started. Yippee!!! I also looked over what I already had, so I’ve got a project for tonight. I like what’s there, but there’s much tightening to do. Writing is funny that way. You think your work is as polished as much as possible, but then look at it a few weeks/months/years(!) later, and plenty will jump out at you. This is the routine I used to use; write in the morning, and in the afternoon or evening do some edits of work from the day before. The day before, the year before, close enough, right? 😛
It’s kind of like working out, if you stop for long enough, you remember your old routine, but can’t just jump back into 50 sit ups a day. There was a time when 750-1000 words was an average day for me. I’ll get back there, but these 500 were rough going–and that includes having been thinking about this scene for months now. I think I’m more afraid of tomorrow than I was of today.
Happy Wednesday, everyone!
