Standard

I started this post while waiting on hold. They told me it would be an hour; I was at 27 minutes when I figured I might as well get going on blogging.

While trying to make a payment on a site, the site kept glitching. I’d tried yesterday as well, and thought it would be back to normal by today, but it wasn’t. Clearly I wasn’t the only person with the issue, given the wait time. But while on hold, I decided to try a few things based on what I was seeing while the site hung up, and lo and behold, 46 minutes into holding, I’d solved the problem and made the payment.

Woo. Hoo.

It’s been that kind of a week. Yesterday, I got all ready to work out at my usual live Daily Burn time, only to find there was no workout. No hint of a workout.

Whaa???

Apparently they had some technical difficulties, so no live workout ever aired. They ran a previously recorded one, but I don’t know when it started, by the time I saw they were running it, it was in the middle. 

So I found one by Erika, an awesome trainer who just left and did that one instead.

Lemonade from lemons this week and there have been many, many lemons. I’ve spent more time away from the computer, as technology is obviously out to get me right now, and am focusing on some larger organization projects. I’ve gotten my front closet nearly under control (it’s tough in Chicago with all the coats) and I have other things I want to work on, so probably another update on that next Friday.

Was the week what I wanted it to be? Eh.

I did do five workouts, even with the glitch with the live workout. Some things are out of our control.

How was your week?

You know what time it is! Using the photo writing prompt above, write a ten word story. Post here, your blog, wherever! Just make sure to leave a link so we know where to find you.

OK, and here’s mine:

There was nothing left to do but watch the sky.

Have you read my books yet?

Standard

You really should.

They’re good.

And fun.

Here’s a link. Right here. Look no further.

Blog Dreams

Standard

So I think I dreamed that I’d written a blog post, or at least had a great topic for one, and it was an easy posting day. Of course now I have no idea what that perfect topic could have been.

I think I need to learn how to type in my sleep.

Especially given I don’t think I slept that well last night. Could have used the time for my benefit, I guess.

Along with the blogging, I had dreams of other timelines and disappearing timelines. My subconscious is nothing if not creative.

I really want another cup of coffee. I had a second one, half-caf yesterday and that might–just might–have had something to do with my not sleeping well. Such a vicious circle.

Additional coffee made, and far too much time spent away from this post as I contemplate my shoe problem. I have many shoes. They need storage.

Pretty sure my dream post didn’t involve shoe storage, but you can’t be completely certain. In a dream, shoe storage can be fascinating.

Shrug.

Not sure why my posts have started to sound like telegrams from 1926, stop. Apparently I’m having staccato ideas, stop.

Anyway, I have many non-writerly things to do, including some major shoe wrangling. I’ll thank me later.

Have a spectacular Tuesday.

#MondayThoughts on the bleak side.

Standard

It’s gray and snowy, and I think it’s going to snow some more, judging by the sky. Hello winter. We knew you were coming.

The year is winding down, and November is nearly gone. How strange.

It’s been a slow, lumbering year, and a quick one, all at once. We’ve seen some of the worst this country has to offer, and it’s not done yet.

Apparently.

I never really thought we’d live in such times. I thought we’d grown up, we’d learned from the past, but the reality is, different people take different lessons, and some of them are dark and horrible.

And bloody.

Deep, depressing sigh.

Here’s the day half-over, a Monday on fast-forward, time still misbehaving. Naughty, naught time.

Off I venture into those Monday tasks and tasks that have me dragging my heels, and I hope you have a very productive week. I hope this coffee hits my brain fast, I’m going to need it.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving if you had one.

Ten Word Photo Prompt: Appearances

Standard

Ten word story time! Using the photo above as a writing prompt, write a ten word story. Yes titles; not long ones.

I thought this one leaned toward Thanksgiving but still gave some interest for our friends in other parts of the world.

OK, here’s mine:

“Xthsit’ngcorp, wheat sticks and slime disks complete our human disguises.”

Happy Thanksgiving!
