Today I am thankful for honey vanilla chamomile tea and shortbread cookies. The promise of those two items have honestly been the only things to get me through the last three hours of solo parenting during bedtime, dinner clean up and writing.
I really wanted to pack it in and fire up the DVR tonight after getting the kids in bed. It’s been a long day. The hubby’s out of town on a business trip. I have 800 different things to get done before another trip out of town this weekend with the family. Pumpkin’s been sick and was up at 4:30 this morning.
Instead of giving into DVR temptation, however, I promised myself the orange frosted shortbread cookie (sorry honey, you leave it here, I eat it) and a cup of tea at the end of my day’s writing. And that’s really all I have the energy to say about that.
Excuse me, I have a cookie to eat before I pass out in bed.
NaNoWriMo update: 1,996 words tonight, 4,904 total. I’m just 97 words shy of where I should be on day 3.
