I have an insane week ahead of me and I'm going crazy already. Alicia's birthday is tomorrow, so I've got all that planning/stuff to do. The kids have a four-day week, and hit me with the need for Valentines on Thursday this morning. Both Alicia and Alex have their first piano lesson with the new teacher tomorrow. Friday, I take Alicia out for the afternoon for a shopping trip and haircuts as part of her birthday present. Saturday, we go up to Sonoma for dinner and seeing the Reduced Shakespeare company. And in the meantime, I have two edits of novel-length works to do, a novel that's due by the end of March (that I have 27k on), and another novel due by the end of this month (which doesn't even have 1k done). Not to mention all the other day to day stuff that is stealing my time.
Days like today, I just want to lock myself in a closet and pretend the world doesn't exist.
