I don’t like this Spring Forward crap. It makes me feel like someone is stealing an hour from my day, and I don’t have enough as it is. I always try to sleep late, which I actually did this morning, just to take a little something back. In fact last night was the first night in a week that I slept more than two hours at a time. I feel so much better after six hours straight.
Yesterday I taught Revision Hell to the Yellow Rose RWA folks, and they are a great group of chicks/gents (the kid I’m mentoring was there). They had their meeting at a lovely antiques shop and I had to put blinders on to get out of there. Lots of pretty, shiny things sitting around. I came back and took a quick nap. Then the hubby took me for lobster. The rest of our hot date consisted of standing at Best Buy trying to decide which alarm clock to buy. We wanted one that would hold an I-Pod but also had two alarms, as our alarms go off about 12 hours apart and we hate resetting. We ended up getting the least expensive one there and then blowing a ton on CD’s. I picked up the new Norah Jones and Fergie. Norah is for working ears, Fergie for cleaning house and exercising. The hubby picked up Connie Francis, Doris Day and Bobby Darin. I kid you not. The man is only three years older than me, but I swear he was born decades late. I actually kind of like Doris Day movies, you know the old ones with Rock Hudson, Cary Grant and the gang. But I’m not sure I’d pick up a CD. ;-) This is why that man makes me laugh so much. We ended up having a very fun night just hanging out.
I’m working on the final, final draft today and I feel like I’m in some kind of Twilight Zone episode. My brain is foggy and I keep reading things I didn’t remember writing. LOL. It’s not like I haven’t read thru the thing six times already.
Oh, I forgot to tell you about Friday. I decided to take a “ME” afternoon. I went and bought new yoga pants, two new pretty blouses, and a pair of denim capris. Thanks to my coupons I kept the tally under $100, which is pretty amazing if you know how I shop. THEN… I went to nail salon and had the SPA pedicure and manicure, and had my eyebrows waxed. I felt like a new woman!
Okay, so say prayers or whatever you do that I’m making this the best book ever. I’ll be under for a couple of days…
And I want to know some funny things…
Subway or Quiznos? (I like smushy bread and banana peppers so I’m a Subway Girl. The rest of my family prefers Quiznos). If you don’t have those sub places in your neck of the woods tell me your favorite sandwich.
And Coke or Pepsi? (I’m addicted to Diet Coke, but I’m thinking about going cold turkey. Some time in the next few weeks. I’m not sure it’s actually possible, but I’m thinking about it.)
