I’m not a lazy person. No wait let me clarify. I AM a lazy person who has spent her life overcoming natural tendencies. But today, I declare a moratorium on productivity. Like during the ice storm that never came this winter, I need to hunker down and recreate, repair, refresh, and a whole bunch of other res that I could think of if given a chance.
#10 – The ground hog is doing it.
#9 – The Kardashians moved to Dallas and I’m avoiding their calls.
#8 – If I get up I have to teach. If I have to teach I have to grade. If I have to grade I have to fuss. I’m a nice mommy and I don’t want to fuss.
#7 – It’s cold out there.
#6 – I can diet better if I sleep when I’m hungry.
#5 – Getting up means putting my feet on the floor – refer to #7.
#4 – Stay-at-home-moms deserve a holiday. I choose this one, please.
#3 – Today is Jules Verne’s birthday. To celebrate, I’m going to dive deeper into my pillows. (Get it? 25k Leagues Under the Sea author? Yea, I think I need to snooze to reboot after that one.)
#2 – It’s also National Kite-Flying day. Think I’ll dream about that, or maybe Mary Poppins.
#1 – I’m a writer. I’m not sleeping. I’m having a consultation with the people in my head!
In all honesty, I am dragging today, but it’s because of this mean old cough that won’t let me go. But thankfully, I’m a writer, so I don’t have to call in sick or worry about spreading germs in my work place. And I stay in the comfort of my room with my trusty vaporizer chugging away and lay my head on my pillow anytime it suits me.
This is the life!
I reported on Sunday that I finished the rewrite of my romantic suspense, Cat’s Eyes. I’m still taking it through some polishings, switching words and inconsistencies, but it is almost set. Meanwhile, I’ve finished a script for a friend of mine and am poised to start writing my next romantic suspense. This one doesn’t have a name yet, but I’m toying with a few and am getting excited about the way the stories and the characters are starting to take shape.
As for my other goals, I’ve been lousy at exercise, but I’ve been more active online. I’m hoping to effectively connect with folks instead of getting distracted and time wasting. So hard to do when I’m online! While I’ve added items to my schedule, I’m still maintaining the balance that I found and want to keep.
Now for a nap!
Oh and what other reasons can you give me for staying in bed! I could use all the help I can get!
