Today is not a bad day. I’m not in a bad mood or upset about anything. I just don’t want to do anything. Anything productive, that is. Honestly, it’s a wonder I’m even committing to my blog.
I’m blaming this bad case of “the don’ts” on the weather. It’s cold (yuck), gray (yuck), rainy (yuck), and just all around blah (yuck). I may have been born in the dead of winter, but I am a summer girl at heart. I like warmth and sunshine and blue skies and colors. This weather just makes me feel gross and tired. My gosh, I slept nine hours last night and I’m still having trouble dragging myself around. I keep telling myself, “Why don’t you go to Barnes and Noble and pick up the next Percy Jackson book?” And all my brain responds with is, “Cold. Walking. Effort. Pants.”
Well, actually, I do have pants on right now, but they’re the really comfy kind. If I went up to Barnes and Noble, I’d have to put on real pants and come on, who actually ever wants to do that?
Besides, it’s not like I need another book to read. I have several that I could be reading in my room. I ALSO have two for friends/reviews that I need to finish. Today might be a very good day to do that, actually. Alas, that would also mean thinking and you know, today just isn’t really a thinking kind of day.
Things I Don’t Want To Do Today:
* Interact with anyone who is not my cat
* Go places
Things That I Do Want To Do Today
* Watch movies (but not deep or stressful movies that require me to use my brain… I’m thinking more like Flubber or Toy Story)
* Build a blanket fort and stay there
I also want to be sure to keep up with the last few chapters of Cemetery Tours 2. I’m so, so, so excited for it to be done that I’ve caught myself moving forward and making plans that it needs for publication before I’ve even finished it! Enthusiasm is good. Not finishing the manuscript is bad. That’s what I really need to be doing today.
Well, now that I’ve complained to you all about how lazy I feel, I actually do need to run and do some errands. In the cold. Blegh.
While I am gone, please enjoy this picture of an owl in a top hat.
