Instead of getting up and turning on the computer, I drink my morning coffee and enjoy either the morning news or my quiet 'Movie Hour'. The kids have had snow days or delays, and I have a stack of DVDs I've not had time to watch (such as Madagascar 1&2; Pirates of the Caribbean; Twilight....). I also own the first season of Fantasy Island, so by next week, I'll be watching Mr. Roarke:) (Back when it aired, I was not allowed to stay up that late. I was only allowed to watch the part when the guests arrived and were introduced.)
Once the kids are up and off to school or occupied, and I'm showered and dressed, I've been baking cookies, reading, doing errands, coming to work and cleaning out 200+ emails and catching up on what I can.
I've even been known to do some housework. I know, shocking, isn't it?
But wait, Molly, I can hear you saying. You have all this time....so why aren't you WRITING?
Did I mention my muse is in Florida? Because that's the only thing I can think of for my lack of inspiration. Or I might just be suffering from the winter blues.
I have been productive the past week. I wrote at least 700 words; cleaned out an old filing cabinet and unearthed all my old manuscripts, not seen in over four years. So that's progress, right? And the blog post I had planned for today is sitting at home in a notebook, so the fact this is being written on the 15th is proof my brain still works!
And speaking of blog posts, the lovely Marianne Stephens is my guest on Molly's Musings. Stop by and say hi to her, won't you?
And here's hoping my hubby gets our internet up and running SOON! I think I'm going through withdrawl.....
