…am glad this week is almost over.
Hi! I know you stopped by looking for an A-Z post of a short story, or perhaps the craft of writing. Perhaps you even looked so far as to see that my theme is “Catching Up.” Well, while I did spending a couple of days “catching up”, so at least on that point I’m on theme, there may actually be no fiction or writing talk.
I love reusable blocks in WordPress. I use the heck out of them with monthly/yearly blog challenges. <3
This week went by pretty quickly, but yesterday I lost track of the days for the first time. I saw an email saying something about Thursday, and I thought for a couple moments they were a little early for that, as it was actually Tuesday.
Nope. I just lost track of my days.
I’ve kept busy with work, with videos for work, and with recording videos for myself.
I’ve kept busy with the blog posts, getting most of them up on time.
I’ve kept busy getting access to the programs I needed and usually used on the (now dead) laptop.
I’ve kept busy feeding the kids.
I’ve kept busy entertaining and cleaning up after the bird and the cats.
I’ve kept busy with Zoom and Facebook videos, meetings, training classes, and hangouts.
I’ve kept busy.
And I’m tired.
I look forward to about seven o’clock, after I’ve made dinner and everyone’s consumed it. I look forward to pouring the last glass of local wine I’ve had on my kitchen counter since…November, perhaps? Long enough to earn a decent coating of dust. I look forward to finishing the bottle, and not having more wine available in the house to consume.
I look forward to enjoying the relatively relaxing routine of my weekend.
I look forward to doing laundry, and picking up groceries.
Easter is Sunday. It’s a candy holiday in our house. And since I’m not letting my kids out of the house to visit my parents, we won’t really be celebrating in any kind of meaningful way. I’ll hopefully get some chocolate with my grocery order (assuming they’re not out of stock—that’s happening a lot lately, understandably), and we’ll wish each other a Happy Easter, and that’ll be it.
This is a sad, possibly repetitive attempt at a blog post. I needed a break from the project I was working on, and I don’t want to take the 20 minutes to do something else.
I hope your week hasn’t been too soul-crushing.
I hope you’re healthy, and if not healthy, on the mend.
I hope you can get all the groceries you need.
I hope you can work from home.
I hope you are able to weather this lockdown/stay-at-home order/pandemic and come out the other side without suffering too much.
