Well, here it is, Tuesday, and here I am, not writing as I had planned on doing! (Except a brief post to my Scribbles page, of course!)
I'd fully intended to work (write) today. Honestly! The reason I didn't set my start date as yesterday was because I knew I had errands to run out of the home and I wouldn't be able to devote my entire, uninterrupted day to my work. Sadly, I now know that I won't be able to do that today or tomorrow, either. And perhaps not Friday... The weekends are always catch as catch can.
Reason? The weather is supposed to be extremely severe and the district schools have closed for at least the next two days.
The single parenting of two active children isn't usually conducive to the writing process... Not in my world, anyway. Generally feeding and caring for them isn't the issue. It's the constant chants of "Mom, Mom, Mom!" and the strident cries of "He took this!" and "He did that!" that get to me. Throw in my having to explain for the 50th time why they cannot go out and play and I just get really frustrated. All of the distractions just mean that I have to resolve myself to the fact that I will have to postpone my plans until Monday.
Off to play another game of Go Fish or checkers...
The best laid plans... They'll keep. Writing doesn't go anywhere... It waits for the right time. Today just isn't that time.
