There are at least three things I should be doing right now: 1) Dishes – I’m so sick of doing dishes. Do they really have to be done EVERY DAY?? 2) Yu-Gi-Oh! – I should be helping my husband organized those freaking cards because I’m better at organizing than he is, but I really just don’t want to. Aaand 3) Packing – I can think of so many other things I would love to do other than packing. I should be a pro at this by now (thank you military), but it is just an awful, tedious task PLUS I had already packed most of our winter clothes back in late July/early August because that is when we were supposed to transfer. I never thought we’d still be here to see another beautiful fall out here. I love the fall months out here, but now I have to unpack winter clothes just to repack with summer clothes.
Being here in my cozy little internet cave is so much more interesting than any of the other three listed above. What I should be doing right now (other than the three things listed above) is working on my poetry book… man I am slacking. I used to be able to write several poems daily, but now I’ll write part of a poem and find it nearly impossible to complete it. My goal was to submit 200 poems, I’ve got just over 150 that are complete and I’m not sure how many more are incomplete, but I do know that if they were finished I’d hit my goal.
My muses are lazy apparently. They’ll help me out with the first few lines and then they dance off somewhere else leaving me stuck in the mud. Thanks ladies.
I could also be doing some actual work on my other book. I’m reinventing vampires and werewolves. I know, it’s so overdone now, but in my defense I came up with this concept pre-Twilight. I’ve just never made it past the initial character development. Sigh.
Part of my problem is I’m so easily distracted and it’s hard for me to focus back on the task at hand. I lose momentum rather quickly. Honestly, I’m more that likely going to do that with this site too. I hope not, but it’s kind of a pattern with me. I go headstrong for a while and then I just kinda drop off. Never my intention. I’m what you’d call a sprinter I guess. I need to learn how to go long distance.
Alright, I’ve put off my responsibilities long enough I suppose. It’s just not as fun as sitting here with my (third) cup of coffee and my laptop and the freezing rain outside making me just want to snuggle under my Star Trek snuggie…
So this is not a picture of me, but this is a pretty accurate representation lol
Alright, ok, fine, I’m going. Sheesh.
