I know, I know, where have I been? I have been NaNo-ing and while it is going okay, I find it all very distracting.
I was going to go swimming today after the Princess left for school. I packed my bag, got to the gym, got inside, and realized I did not have my goggles. Why not? Because I had loaned them to The Princess on Sunday. D’oh! I also did not have my shoes, so I couldn’t do anything else either.
Okay, change of plans. I went to Wal-Mart to pick up a few things we needed. I grabbed a cart did my shopping and got in line. I waited patiently, and then put my things on the conveyor belt at the cashier. Just before she started to ring me up I realized I did not have my wallet. D’oh again!
I came home, got my wallet, and decided to do my shopping at Target instead of Wal-Mart. I like Target better anyway. By then I was hungry, and very stressed out.
The only cure for that is McDonalds. Then, to add insult to injury, the good people in the drive-thru forgot to give me a straw, so I couldn’t even drink my Diet Coke on the way home.
And I firmly believe none of that would have happened if I had been thinking about my day instead of my characters. Two more weeks. I can only hope we all survive.
