I feel like I haven’t gotten anything done today. Most of the time, when I sit down to write, I am in my own little world. The blinders are on and I become completely immersed in my work. Today was the glaring exception. Sure, I had some computer issues to deal with but I can’t put the full blame there. (Most, but not all)
By mid-afternoon, I had most of the bugs worked out of the new program and I was ready to work…or so I thought. Just as I was getting a new scene on the page, the next interruption struck. My puppy was in rare form today. I was typing away, in mid-sentence, when she darted into the room and stole the sock right off my foot. She’s like a little stealth bomber. She dashes in, without a sound, and is gone again before you even realize what hit you. For such a little thing, she is ridiculously fast. She tries to obey commands so I managed to get the sock back immediately but she really wanted to play. I sat down and she brought me a toy. She’s really subtle too. She jumps up drops it right on my keyboard. I decided that, after a quick play-break, I would knuckle down and get to work.I received phone calls, text messages, Twitter messages and emails from pretty much everyone I know and next thing I knew, my sweetie was home from work. Then, there was dinner and more silliness from the puppy. I tried again after dinner but this time, the distraction was my own fault. I know it’s preseason, but football is back. I had to check in on my hometown team. So, I think I’m just going to count this as a rare vacation day and tomorrow I will be back on track. Sleep well!
