This was the week I was going to start writing late morning or early afternoon. Instead, I am writing this real quick at 6 am before I head to the barn. Why?
When I got home from the barn yesterday I still had their keys in my pocket so I went back to return them.
I walked the dog.
It was the last day to get 100 bonus points for ordering ahead at Dunkin on a Monday so I decided to use that as an excuse to get an iced coffee.
I asked my daughter if she wanted one as well and then had to wait to go until after she got back from checking on her friend’s cat.
I decided to get a start on yard work in the interim instead of writing.
My wife asked me to stop at the grocery store since I would be out.
I watched a Rat in the Kitchen with my daughter instead of writing while I drank my coffee.
I spent the next two hours or so mowing the yard.
When I was done my wife and daughter were in the family room watching TV so I joined them.
I find it hard to write when others are up and about. If my daughter continues to be up and about at a reasonable time I will have to get over that.
Maybe next week will be the week I get on track with the new schedule – just in time for me to leave town again.
