It feels like Friday today.
It’s not Friday…not that it matters, really.
I do what I do and I do it day by day by day by day. (Doug and the Slugs)
Today I had a bunch of hurdles preventing me from moving forward on multiple projects.
First, people were distracting me from my focus. THANKS A LOT. You know who you are. 😉
Second, I seem to have developed some sort of sensitivity or allergy to the following:
- outdoor air
- sunshine (?)
- chocolate and nuts together
- fizzy flavoured soda water (San Pellegrino Aranciata Rossa)
I have all these weird symptoms now… 😵
Which is why I spent most of yesterday indoors on my bed writing naughty stories. Ha! 😇
My eyes were bothering me outside. Teary and itchy. Uncomfortable. I couldn’t even put my contact lenses in.
I don’t have seasonal allergies that I know of. Ugh.
But this morning the sun was beckoning again, so I was hoping I could return to my little outdoor office. I did.
I’m typing this there right now…
Except I have a stomach ache. Probably from the chocolate and nut combination. 😐
I never had an allergy toward that before, either. And before you roll your eyes at me, I had a small piece, a square inch, not some obnoxious amount that would justify my discomfort now. Boo.
Third, I have finally achieved mental readiness to finish creating my KDP Amazon self-publishing account. Except…the bank account I opened last week is not showing as active. How can it not be active? I went into the account, I see it there on my screen…
So. I have to deal with that in order continue with the self-publishing thingy…because that’s part of the information I have to put into the registration format. You know, for the trickle of royalties I’ll be making.
There’s other news. The family, my sporty athletic children, have now taken up a new sport. Because their sports – baseball (both), gymnastics (her), hockey (him), ringette (her) – are not active and may not be, the boys decided they were going to take up golf.
According to my teenage son, golf is what hockey players play in the off-season.
This caused a slew of shopping for clubs, one got new (the adult) and one got used ones from kijiji (the teen). Apparently they will require attire too.
All I keep think about that is, go ahead! If it gets me some solitude and uninterrupted time, I’m all for it! (They went to the driving range today for an hour. They were gone for two. It’s… a start.) 🙂
And so another day comes to a close. Perhaps tonight I will treat myself to a glass of wine, since I already cheated on my sugar-free diet with chocolate, and re-attempt to complete my KDP thingy.
What’s happening in your neck of the woods? See you in the comments!
