    Check In- What Are You Doing?

    I'm goofing off online because I can't sleep. Finished writing a book last night, sad because Christmas reminds me of family problems, happy because we leave in two days for a month in south Florida. Wish I had a glass of wine.

    What are you doing?

    Layers of playing around with a RDA, cleaning up house, thinking of my WIP--to prepare for the next scene or revision that I'll write later today--and checking in to AW because why not.

    Petting the cat who is purring on my head, and trying to get the momentum to get out of bed and make coffee. The cat is just as happy to keep me here, and for the moment, she's winning.

    Drinking coffee by the light of my laptop. Kid is sleeping in the living room because my mom has his room. She's going home today, so I get to drink coffee on the couch again tomorrow. But my mom won't be here. It's a tradeoff.

    I'm studying German right now, I've always loved that language, with tv noise at the background -because I just can't stand silence- and checking AW

    Yep, I love to multitask! =)

    I'm trying to take my own advice and writing out a to-do list for things that I need to do re:editing and completing my novel. You may notice that I am posting on AW instead. I've been moderately successful anyway.

    Sitting in a cold Greyhound bus station in Detroit waiting with my daughter for the bus that will take her to Dayton for the rest of her winter break, then driving the two hours home by myself.

    Ugh, DL. Safe drive!

    I'm looking up recipes for dairy-free Yorkshire puddings, because I can't find the last one I wrote down. Also, cursing the total lack of snow during my winter break.

    Just finished dinner and cleaning the kitchen...

    Made BBQ Spareribs (in the crockpot), Mac N Cheese and Collards to go with.

    Looking forward to going to work tomorrow, 'cause that means only 2 1/2 more days until "retirement."

    Close, finished chicken and dressing. Not cleaning up till halftime. Seeing who wants the NFC south the worst. Two years to "retirement," unfortunately.

    Drinking red wine and gnawing on some very hard yet very tasty homemade spekulatius cookies.

    And procrastinating. But I think that goes without saying.

    Just finished dinner (pizza) and am planning to goof off in a game for a while. So, mostly, I'm just sitting here wasting my time.

    And everyone else's, now that they're reading this.

    Woo hoo for retirement, Laverne (why the quotation marks around it?) DH retired a few months ago. I think that means I'm retired too, but not sure. :p

    Finishing even a short book feels weirdly like a loss. That's what I did round the clock for a while and now it's gone. So I have the nerve to feel sorry for fruitself while packing for a Florida vacation.

    But DH went to get me some (red, too, mrsmig!) wine so I guess I'll somehow be able to pull through haha.

    Lying wide awake in bed, typing posts on my phone, too tired to focus on a novel and too wired to sleep.
