Late Night, Little to Say

I am writing this from my iPod because I almost forgot. It's been a terrible week. I haven't written or done anything with my goals. It started with three days of the eight year old at work. The last day of that was because of a snow storm. That same day, Wednesday, My friend's cat, who used to be my kitty before I had to find her a new home, died. Thursday when I got to work, the building started flooding. Things I had stored there got ruined. Access to the kitchen was cut off so no hot drinks during the day plus cold, wet feet all day from having to wade through some of the water. Friday was a continuation of dealing with flood damage.

So I'm a bit whiny. And still mentally exhausted. I spent a lot of time knitting and watching movies all weekend. Tomorrow starts a new week, though, and I will pick myself back up and restart my writing. Slowly. With time off if I need it as my emotions, still not fully recuperated from my my mother's health crises of last year, may need more time off.

That's all for my dreary check-in. I plan on having something better and more interesting to report on Wednesday.

I'm so sorry to hear about the rough week you had. I hope this one is better and that you're able to take some time for yourself.

Doesn't it seem sometimes like life doesn't want us to get in the least bit comfortable? I hope this week is much better for you!

Take each day as it comes to you, breathe, don't feel guilty if you can't write or focus. Take care of yourself first. Many, many hugs!

I wish you a warm drink, warm and dry feet, and sweet memories. Sounds like a good time to just let yourself be, and recover. May you find your balance again, soon....

This might sound counterintuitive, but I am actually grateful for those moments of drearyness amidst times of wild productivity. If our writing and our lives were always exactly the same, wouldn't it get boring?

Sorry for all the reasons behind the dreary state, though. Hope things ease up in those directions.

Big hugs and whoa! I bet things are better now!
