Not sure if anyone else is having issues with wordpress and the other blogs you subscribe to, but I haven’t been able to read them(without going to each individual one to see if they’ve even been updated) for the last couple of days. Anyone else having this problem as well?
This week didn’t start out too great. Had trouble waking up Monday morning and had to get Hayleigh up by 6:15 so she had time to eat and get ready to get down to the end of the driveway to catch the bus by 7:07. Then, by the time I got Nathaniel down for a nap and took a shower, I didn’t have a lot of time left before she got home and realized I still had to get Monday’s blog post typed up, So I did that instead. And the bus dropped her off about 20 minutes later than I expected(I wasn’t exactly sure of the time so headed down early but wasn’t expecting to wait almost 30 minutes). So, I didn’t get anything written on Monday, aside from the blog post.
On Tuesday I woke up about 4 a.m. and heard the gate in the kids’ hallway open then little feet pad across the house. I sat up as Hayleigh came into the room. I told her it was too early to be up and she told me, “no, it morning.” yes, but way too early. Turned out, she had to go potty, so we got that taken care of and got her back to bed. In the meantime though, her brother woke up, so I had to get him to go back to sleep as well. Once that was done, I went back to bed until about 4:30, but since I couldn’t get back to sleep, I figured I might as well get up. I wrote for just about an hour with a couple of short distractions(about a minute or 2 at a time) and fell just short of 750 words.
This morning I woke up at 5, was on the computer by 5:15 and writing by 5:30. That only gave me about half an hour to write but I got 285 words. Not a whole lot, but at least it is helping to move the story along. Right now I’m more concerned with getting some words down and not worrying so much about how many.
