I really hate it when I can't sleep. It seems like I woke up every hour last night and I really couldn't tell you why. There was the whole dog barking episode, of course, and my daughter trying to adjust to sleeping in her room, and the rumbling noises of my very hungry tummy. Oh yes - and I had a pounding headache. Well. I guess I did have reason to be sleepless.
At any rate, I'm at work and only have minimal things to do. I might try and get some writing time in on the new WIP since I haven't worked on it for a few days. I've been absorbed in getting my submissions ready and all I have to do is run to the post office today and send them off (and make sure I kiss them before I drop them off!).
My house is a disaster again, despite the fact that I spent most of Saturday cleaning. The kitchen is full of dirty dishes already and I'm wondering why in the heck I have to ask my husband to wash them.
My daughter has her first dentist appointment today and I am not looking forward to it. I have a feeling she's going to be scared witless. She doesn't know about it - I'm just going to pick her up from daycare and take her straight to the dentist so she doesn't have all day to worry about it. I *hate* going to the dentist, so I have to try and not communicate that terror to her.
I hope she does okay. We might have to run to the video place next door to the dentist and rent a movie for her afterwards. That's when parents just don't care if they're spoiling their children or not. When they've just gone through a doctor's appointment or immunization shots (which thankfully, we already did a few months ago), they just want to comfort them whatever way possible. Maybe I'll ask my husband if he can take her. She seems to be "tougher" when she's with her Daddy. :-)
I've always tried to live with this mentality: One day at a time. Unfortunately, when I implement it, I fail spectacularly. But for this...
We have a big snowstorm headed our way. Now usually these snowstorm predictions tend to be far grander than what actually happens - i.e. we ...
Yesterday I woke up in a fantastic mood. I felt pretty good (you never feel terrific when you have chronic illnesses) and I couldn't wai...
