And I’m off and running. While Allison trekked the mall for the perfect RITA dress yesterday, I’m trekking off today in search of the perfect haircut and pedi. I have so many things on my list of things to do, I doubt I’ll stop until I drop at the end of the evening. Well maybe not. We’re having dinner with friends tonight. They are good friends we don’t get to see much of with both of our crazy schedules so it will be nice to curl up around a nice glass of cab and visit.
Saturday morning I’m off and running to one of my local RWA Chapter meetings where I’m part of the Boot Camp for National workshop. Following that, off to a promised shopping spree with number one daughter. Sunday? If the family thinks they’re getting a big dinner out of me they have another thing coming. I need the day to put my suitcase in order. Monday morning, it’s up by 3 a.m. and off to the airport for a 6:25 a.m. flight to Dallas.
I still have a scene I want to rewrite for the novella I just turned in, and my editor wants it Monday. I meant to do it yesterday/last night, but my youngest son had his wisdom teeth pulled yesterday morning. While he was a decent patient, he was a little bastard until the anesthesia wore off. He then profusely apologized for being, ‘such a jerk.” Hrmph. Jerk was mild.
Anyhoo, changing gauze very 20 minutes for two hours, keeping him iced, hydrated and medicated, and then making sure my surly patient didn’t do anything dumb was time consuming. Then there was the trouble shooting with the business, and life in general stuff. Just when I sat down to begin the scene, my son comes into my office and tells me he’s hungry. “Would you make me some of that garlic and butter pasta, mom?”
Oh sure, he’s sweet as pie now.
Okay, so the point of this blog wasn’t to say wha, I’m so busy, it was to say, wha, I’m so busy I can’t think of a decent thing to blog about today! I was going to blog about men and what lousy patients they are, but didn’t feel like it. Then I was going to do a google search for the infamous SFPD video a bunch of cops did off duty and got slammed for by the mayor and Chief. I have to say it was hilarious! There were 23 involved and they all got beach time. The first cop who sued the city over it won today. I was happy for him. I hope the others get their pay for their beach time and the suspension cleared from their records. The video was done in fun, for a Captain’s retirement or birthday or something. The city says it was embarrassing, slanderous, racist, blah blah blah blah. What it was, was hysterical.
But I was too lazy to dig for it. Sorry. Just too much on the old brain right now to think a coherent blog thought.
With that sorry excuse, I will bid adieu until next week. I hope to blog Friday, but I’m slammed at conference. And, um, I like to party, so no guarantees you’ll hear one peep out if me until I’m back safe and sound in Cali.
