Why? Because I’ve got a cat and a blog. What else would I do on teh interwebs?
Plus, I think she’s the cutest cat in creation, and wanted to share. Of course, I may be a wee bit biased.
In other news, tomorrow is my first day back to work since November… 20th, I think. I’m a little nervous, but looking forward to taking one more step back to normal.
It’s somewhat frustrating to have had so much time off from work, and not to have done any writing. Proof, I guess, that writing really does take energy and some minimum level of health to undertake…
I did a lot of dozing and napping, mostly. A lot of waking up either worried, needing the bathroom, or being poked and prodded by (the very wonderful and much appreciated!) nurses, techs, and phlebotomists.
I’m so happy to be home with my love and our kitty, feeling at least on the way to healthy, and sleeping through the night!
A good night to all of you, and here’s hoping life treats us all pretty well as we move into the holidays and the new year!
We got the branches from last month’s nor’easter out to the curb for the town to pick up, *and* cleared the leaves from the front yard.
Also called up NFCU to start inquiring into whether we can refinance our mortgage to a lower interest rate.
Routine is the only way I can actually manage being reliable. I’m too easily distracted to remember appointments without writing them down, or remembering to post when I’m taking a few days off from writing in the morning.
Of course, yesterday I got up at 6, showered, and went back to bed until 7, so there was no time to post in the morning. (Mainly because I stayed up late to finish reading The Alloy of Law, by Brandon Sanderson. Excellent book, by the way!)
I didn’t even think of posting at lunch, and after work was yoga, which left me too worn out to do more than eat supper and then play Sudoku on easy level until I had digested enough to go to bed without making myself sick…
Getting up early really is the key for me to getting other stuff done. And sticking to a routine is the easiest way for me to be reliable. Posting, writing, eating, working, even making sure I get enough sleep – everything can be thrown off-kilter by a single change to my routine. (In this case, taking a break from writing to read new books… and staying up late to finish one, which made me sleep late, etc.)
Does that mean I’m going to go straight back to getting up at 5 and writing every morning? Nope! I’ve got at least one more book to read before I settle down to another period of reliability.
Ohhh, it looks good so far! Makes me want to read the books over again already.
Happy Birthday to Brian!
In honor of my wonderful, dearest love, here are a couple of fun links.
I wonder if any of the local bookstores have this in stock – after all, Brian hasn’t picked any birthday presents yet!
And, because he loves bicycles and biking:
I love you Brian!
