How did she??? I don't know, I don't know, I don't know!
It's January 8 and I'm here all like, "Words? How do I do this again?" Even though, I swear, I AM ready to be back in a routine. I've been running a few times and even though it's been a slog, it feels good to move semi-quickly again. I've stopped eating for England, so that's another check in the plus column. I'm back to going to bed the same day I woke up in and my house has long been de-Christmas'd. There's no reason I should be struggling.
But excuses? I've got 'em. The new puppy is adorable, but much more high maintenance than our chilled 6-year-old lab. Every walk turns into an hour. My husband came down with the flu at New Year and, even though he's much better, he's still working from home. This helps with the puppy but not so much with the distractions, because even though I'm in the next room with the door closed, I can still hear the TV. And then there's the whole wavering between two manuscripts thing.
I'm a one-book-at-a-time type of person. I can't read more than one book at a time and I definitely can't write one, but I keep thinking I can so I don't have to decide which one to put aside. My goal this weekend is to decide. Write blurbs for both and then dive in. That sounds like a plan, right? Right??? I may even post both and go with popular opinion, so stay tuned. :)
