The Dentist & Chick-fil-A In The Same Day!

I had hopes of editing today, but alas, that’s not going to work out. — I knew it was unlikely that I would get to it. But, I had hoped.

I had a dentist appointment this morning. Cleaning, nothing crazy. It takes me about an hour and a half to get there. That includes swinging by to pick up my mom since she’s on the way and always goes with me. We like to make a day of it. — Dentist first. Lunch second. Then shopping. — So that’s what I did today, or rather, what we did. 😀

Cavity free. So that’s nice. Course I need to get my wisdom teeth taken out sometime later this year. So that’s not nice. But I knew that already. I’ve been putting it off for a while. Cause, I mean, really… oral surgery? Ain’t nobody wanna do that!

Chick-fil-A. — Now that’s something worth doing! Feel like it speaks for itself. It was hot, delicious, and worth all the calories. I don’t even care it had too many. Ate it all anyway.

Didn’t buy anything. But then half the time we never do. — We shop, we talk, we smell all the candles, look at all the clothes, and go into all the stores. — It’s a thing. And it was fun. Had a good time.

Now I’m home. Been home about an hour. It’s seven o’clock. — I’m tired. I have a headache. I just want to kick back and watch a little tv. Relax. Do absolutely nothing. That sort of thing. — Which is why editing is not happening tonight. But that’s okay. I’ll work tomorrow. 🙂

It’s also Valentine’s Day. But we don’t celebrate it. — I love my husband. He’s my favorite person. I just don’t buy into someone else telling me when to celebrate those things, or how to celebrate them. — Maybe that’s just the libertarian in me? Don’t tell me what to do or how to do it. I’ll decide for myself, thank-you. 😉

Seriously though, if you do enjoy Valentine’s Day, then Happy Valentine’s Day! There’s nothing wrong with that either. 🙂

Imma get off of here and try to find something quick to toss together for supper. — See you all tomorrow!

Much love,
Heather. 🙂

A Success & A Mess…

I’ve been writing for the last six hours. I finally finished the flash back scenes I’d been working on this week. Wrote the last two today. — Yay!

This just means tomorrow, or maybe later tonight, I will start going back through my novel from beginning to end to clean it up and make it better. Then I’ll print it off and do it again. — Then I’ll get it into the hands of some readers for feedback. No one has read it but me. Some have read scenes, and snippets here and there, but not in its entirety.

So that’s scary. They may tear me to shreds. Hopefully not. I like to think I have some raw talent in me where writing is concerned. Let’s hope others do too!

In other news. Went up town to get some take out earlier, and while we were gone my 85lb dog attempted to climb up on the trash can, so she could get to something that was on the counter.

This plan backfired on her. As the flimsy plastic trash can could not support her weight and so we have surmised she toppled off of it. Taking the trash can down with her. Lid came off, and when we returned, she spotted us and ran away like a dog that knew she was in trouble.

Why you ask? Well, remember the lid came off… and when presented with her two options, rather than walk away like any good obedient dog should… she did no such thing. Clearly, she’s no good obedient dog. She drug everything out of it and scattered it all over the kitchen floor. — Banana peels. Egg shells. Lemons. Strawberries. And so many other such things were scattered all over the place.

So, having said that. Anybody want a dog? She’s cute, really. Her behavior… well, that’s questionable. I’ll even offer a discount if you’ll overlook that last bit about her behavior. Then she’s just cute. And who doesn’t want a cute dog?

Eh, guess we’ll keep her. Love & forgiveness & all that. 😉

Anyhow. This is the fifth consecutive day of blogging for me since saying five days ago that I’d blog daily. WordPress is going to tell me I have a five-day streak going on and I’m going to grin like an idiot and pat myself on the back for a job well done. — It’s the little things in life guys. 😀

Heather! 🙂

I’m Here & I Have Reese’s…

I’m here.

I spent 8 hours of my day in the car. On the interstate. It’s 9:30 pm. I’m tired. I kind of want to sleep. I kind of want to binge on Hulu. I kind of want a snack. — And I will get to all those things… though not necessarily in that order. But first… I will blog. — I made a commitment. — Daily blogging. And here I am.

My sentences are short and sweet. I’m too tired to string anything else together. Amazing what sitting in a car for hours can do to a person. How do people drive for a living? I would lose my sanity. All of it. Every last bit.

So we got in the car this morning. Drove 4 hours, hit up a baby shower, and then drove 4 hours back home. Also got to buy onesies with cats on them yesterday. Who doesn’t love a cat onesie? — That’s like the most adorable thing ever. Uncle Jeremy & Aunt Heather for the win! 😉

Alright, I really don’t know what else to say. My day was fairly boring. I spent the majority of it in the car. I did do a little bit of writing in the car. Lot of talking. Little bit of eating.

Ooooh! Speaking of eating in the car. I just remembered. I bought road trip Reese cups last night and brought them with us today, but totally forgot about them on the trip. — Which just means there is chocolate in my car and I’m about to go get it and get my snack on! Totally winning at life right now. — Except that part where I forgot they were in the car with us all day and so never opened them. — Ignore that part. — Still winning!

Alright guys. It’s not much of a post, I know. But it is a post. Which is what I promised you. Daily blogging. No matter what. So here it is. — Edge of your seat stuff, I know. You’re welcome. 😉

Heather!
