So it appears that I need some structure. Without the kids here, demanding to be fed on a regular basis, I’m just wandering around the house, getting distracted by dirty socks and trying to keep them out of Harley’s mouth. Order is called for. My new schedule — just so you know — is to blog every Tuesday. I can’t tell you how many times last week I sat down to write a post, clicked on some random link, and two hours later was all whoops! Where’d the time go? I have all kinds of plans to become the next Martha Stewart, or at least clean out the hall closet, but I’m not even going to get to my list of potentially procrastinating activities that keep me from writing my next novel UNLESS I step away from the internet periodically. (And how’s that for a run on sentence?)
So. The plan. Blog entry every Tuesday, unless something so exciting I can’t help sharing it occurs. (My mom’s still e-mailing Oprah, so ya never know.)
In the meantime, if you’ve liked me on Facebook (and you have, haven’t you? And made all your friends and relatives do the same?) you’ll have heard about the gaping loss several libraries are facing due to the recent flooding. I can’t imagine not being able to take my kids to check out books — the library is the first place we visit in any new town, and we’ve met life-long friends doing so. If you’d like to help, author Kate Messner has pulled together the information on her web site. My kids chose to donate toward a purchase of Where the Wild Things Are, which seems particularly fitting since my house is Wild Thing free most days lately. Except for Harley. And even he’s depressed.
Harley’s looking very thoughtful here–either missing the kids or wondering where his next sock is. . .
A little of both, I think!
