Gotta get out of this place. Monday Daughter off to school. Morning routine. Spent way too much time investigating a new tool and not enough writing. Unfortunately, it feels like it can’t be helped. It really feels as though the new tool may unleash a river of creativity that is currently impossible, but it wouldContinue reading “WIP: Not This Again”
Up early for services. Yesterday’s vomiting went away as quickly as it arrived, so that’s nice. Visited my parents, then got sucked into evaluating my tools again. Annoying when that happens. Ran poker, got home late and tired. Tomorrow it begins again.
Woke up at 5 A.M. to my daughter throwing up, which did not stop for several hours and rearranged my whole day. No complaints. I can still do this.
And so it continues… Friday Daughter to school. Morning routine. Blah, blah, work. Blah, blah, marketing meeting. Dinner, home, tired, slept early. Vampires Versus Comicon Another typical day. Got some words, but not enough. Another bit character wants to take on a bigger role, and probably will. Plus, I think we’re about to meet someContinue reading “WIP: Surely (But Slowly)”
If it wasn’t for those deadlines, I would be doing okay. Thursday Got my daughter off to school, then took a two-mile walk along the canal. Morning routine, some food, then got some work done. Unreasonably distracted looking for a better theme for my website, an unproductive waste of time that I wish I couldContinue reading “WIP: Still Not Fast Enough”
To be clear, the work is going forward, just not as quickly as I would like. Wednesday Started the day with my morning routine, then had to stop everything for a doctor appointment. Didn’t get properly to work until around noon. Working didn’t last long, however, because Wednesdays are early-release days at the local schools,Continue reading “WIP: Making This Interesting”
Okay, so I’m way behind. Again. Tuesday It was pretty much a new-normal day: start with morning routine, take the little girl to the school bus, work, lunch, work, get the little girl, homework, dinner, bath, more work. Except also with a major grocery run in there. Vampires Versus Comicon I did not get theContinue reading “WIP: Where. Are. The. Vampires?”
After a long rough patch, a day with only the acceptable minimum feels like flying. Monday Started the day with my miracle morning routine, including a long walk by the canal. Got to work and stayed with it. Went to get my daughter, then spent the next five hours on homework, dinner, and bath (IContinue reading “WIP: Kick The Tires”
When the standard has become no forward movement on the weekends, even a little progress feels like a great day. Sunday Got the day to a good start. Went to Sunday School orientation at UUCP. Visited my parents. Got some work done. Ran a poker tournament. Relaxed. To bed early. Prepared for good week. VampiresContinue reading “WIP: Sunday, Better Sunday”
Many of my problems have the same solution. Saturday Rose early and got my morning routine done. Wasn’t early enough to get real work done, however. Immediately we were off to Elizabeth’s soccer thing orientation, then off to Standing Rock solidarity thing at Wesley Bolen Park. Then I was off to run poker. Afterward, IContinue reading “WIP: I Can Make Saturdays Better”
