Yesterday wasn’t great for writing. I’ve been fighting a bit of a sinus issue for the last few days, and last night I finally gave in and took a Benedryl. Now, I’m not one of those people that immediately gets knocked out when they take that tiny pink pill. But when I do finally go to sleep, I sleep hard. So when the alarm went off this morning at 6, it was a struggle to drag my phatass out of bed. But I did it, knowing we needed to walk the girls and get the day started.
Imagine my surprise when I got to the den and found that MBH and the girls were already gone. My wife’s walking shoes, the girls’ leashes and harnesses, all gone. They got back a few minutes later, and MBH told me that she’d had trouble sleeping and had taken them out alone. She saw how tired I was and suggested I go back to bed, and for once, I didn’t argue. That was about the last thing I remembered until I woke up again a bit after 9:30.
And there have been a ton of Facebook birthday wishes, a couple of phone calls and text messages… it’s enough to make a guy feel pretty good about life. J
But now, some of my chores are done, and it’s time to get some more writing in the can. So this post is going to be short and sweet.
To everyone who has, or is going to, wish me a happy birthday, thank you all. And now, time to write.
Stay safe, everyone.
