Seriously, I had a good day of writing today. It was one of those days when the writing is easy, words form without a lot of effort, you don’t have to give it a lot of thought. And I ended up with a little over 2000 words, still have that little cushion to help me as I continue working toward that 50,000 word count.
Once I finally got out of bed today, I forced myself to make the trek to Kroger to purchase a few more things for our Thanksgiving work feast…bottled water, bottled tea, soda, chips, candy, snack cakes and crackers, and a big old spiral sliced ham (which I did bake this evening…the house sure smells good). I dropped everything off at work where young Chris told me the district manager had called for me. So I meandered toward the office, talking with customers on the way. When I called Steve, he told me we had a conference call scheduled for this afternoon and wanted to know how things were going. We chatted for a few minutes then parted ways, he to make the trip to Illinois, me to check on the schedule…another call-in to try to find a replacement for. I got all of that taken care of, added a few more shifts to use up the hours that I had left over, gathered all of the requests-off and schedule info so I could work on the schedule at home later in the day.
Then I went back to Kroger, the one closest to where I live, to pick up a few things I needed for home. I finally made my way home with half an hour to spare before the conference call got underway. After participating in the 40 minute conference call, I got the ham in the oven, laundry in the washer, dish water run, and finally sat down to eat something. After working on the schedule for a while, I did a couple more things around the house then decided to get down to the business of writing.
Whew! One of my work buddies told me I looked tired…hmm…I wonder why?! What a great day off! What did you do today?
