Sunday Summary: Double 3s

Happy birthday to me! I guess. I woke up around 2 with a cramp in my calf muscle so bad I was almost in tears. Thanks, body. Just what I wanted for a present. :p So, I guess that means I missed that whole extra hour of sleep thing, too(which we forgot to turn our clocks back last night so I had a moment of confusion when my computer was an hour earlier than everything else…because I apparently ignored my phone). Anyway, today’s plans are breakfast at IHoP, maybe a trip to B&N(to spend gift card MIL got me), craft store(for the yarn I need for one of my projects), hopefully a hair cut and groceries. That’s pretty much it.

I guess this is what 33 looks like, not much different than 32.

A little over a week ago, the S pen for my phone(the Samsung Note 5) broke. The end came off, and I ended up losing the spring, with the rest of the pen stuck inside my phone. I tried a trick I found for getting it out, but it didn’t work. So, I figured I’d get a replacement one(I also bought a couple books so I’d get free shipping. :D). It got here yesterday. And wouldn’t work. 😦 Realized the phone must not recognize it since it still registered one being inside. Husband managed to pry it out(I was afraid to be too aggressive and break something. He obviously didn’t have such concerns). The new one works better than the old one did before. I’m setting the old one aside in case something happens to this one.

Wording is going pretty well, though I just realized I didn’t update my NaNo word count on the site yesterday(think I did Friday, but not sure). Better go do that. Then, on to my progress for the month so far.

    • “I will not just let him get away with what he has done,” Torin said quietly then turned and stalked back to the mare he’d left a little distance away. He didn’t ride off this time, though. Eamonn was afraid if he did, he would never see his brother again.

    • Still Burning – 866 words
      • She shook her head, but all her words had abandoned her. She didn’t know how to make it clear that this wasn’t about him not being enough. It was about him deserving better than she’d ever be able to give him. That she couldn’t love him, not the way he seemed to need from her. “This will be better,” she said then she turned and jogged back to where she’d parked her car.
        It would be better, she told herself again on the drive back to her apartment. Once it stopped hurting so much, it would be better.
    • Whatever It Takes – 819 words
    • High on Loving You – 743 words
    • By the Gun – 517 words
      • “I’m shot.” Shot. Just like their father had been. He’d died in that street because Alejandro hadn’t been able to do anything. Now, he was going to die, too. And he hadn’t even been able to find Rosalyn. He’d failed her just like he had their father. Like he had everyone.
