Spent the morning out with Alicia---grocery shopping, Halloween shopping, and getting her hair cut. I had to get it all done early because I knew I was losing Craig at lunchtime. He's got killer deadlines coming up this week and is working like a madman. He's been in the office since lunch, and he's already let me know that he won't be home before they go to bed here in an hour. Tomorrow and this week is going to be more of the same.
So, it's just been me and the kids for the bulk of the day. I've only managed to get 1500 words written on the Frost chapter so far, which annoys me to no end, but I can't seem to stay focused on it. And I want to get it done so that I can post tomorrow, so I have a few days off to meet my blurb deadline. At least this assignment is something a little new for me so hopefully a tad more interesting than the usual fare.
I have to say, though, I'm pleased with the response to the William ficathon. Thank you to everyone who's signed up so far, and feel free to let others know about it. More fic is always good. :)
Craig and I have decided to buckle down on the getting into shape issue. We do really well for a few weeks and lose, and then have a bad few days and gain it back. So, we're going to start exercise, food, and measurement logs so that we have the definitive results right in front of us. We're both far too visually oriented not to do this at this point, so fingers crossed it does the trick.
Maybe I'm hormonal. I teared up watching the end of "Babe" today. That might be a sign.
I think we've got the nicest McDonald's employee at the one just down the street from us. I always seem to get the same guy in the food pick-up window, and he always tips his hat to me after giving me my food. I've never seen a McDonald's employee do that.
How sad is it that I'm going to spend my Saturday night cleaning? And sometime tonight, I have to get another 1500 words done on something so that I can meet my writing quota for the day.
Blech. I'm feeling like a lump. I need to get my husband back. I think I'm just lonely.
