Greetings, Kittens!

I'm only now getting around to T13 today, for many good reasons; 13 of which I'm about to share. *Smile* Yes, last week's T13 now realized.

Enjoy.






1.  Sleep. I had some. It was brief, but lovely.

2. Sinus Issues. I went to sleep "early" because of the sinus headache that smacked me about last night. I'm still being haunted by its ghost, but I'm dealing well I believe.

3. Writing. Before the headache, I actually got work done on the next PsiCorps novel. I have no idea what's going on, but I'm enjoying finding out.

4. Glasses. I spent the bulk of the day, running out to get my new glasses and have an adjustment to my contacts. I haven't worn them in twenty years and my eyes are rebelling when it comes to close focus text reading. Yeah, you know, my job.

5. Connection. I abandoned my husband-like-person while working to make my deadline last week, so I spent most of my "well time" with him.

6. Television. After our adventures out, we settled down to clean out the clutter on the DVR and settle the season finales of our faves before they were spoiled.

7. Friends. When I got up this morning, I could have immediately done the T13, but I was busy catching up with folks I haven't talked to in way too long. They seemed happy? *smile*

8. Reading. A book, really, me, I had time to read. This is what having a huge break between deadlines feels like. I'm a fan.

9. Forums. I think I've caught up on all but two as of this afternoon.

10. Facebook.

11. Business. Got caught up in conversations on the business side of the writing that I hope will keep growing.

12. Shopping. More of which will need to be done in an hour or so, as well as Saturday and probably Monday.

13. Laundry. Which I'm still in the middle of, so I'll be right back.

Lots of good reasons
You've got lots of good reasons to take a break--yet you didn't. I hope you feel better soon.

Re: Lots of good reasons
Thank you. It would be great to feel better here soon. Tried to eat something and I am full of regret at the moment. :(

Yeah, I'm also at the point where I have to wear reading glasses if I'm wearing my contacts (for now I can peak under my glasses if I'm wearing them for close work.) And yay for catching up on things - especially reading!

I don't think I'm going to be able to adapt to the contacts. I'm used to being able to see at all distances with my glasses, this whole extra step with the contacts, just doesn't feel worth it.

It's good to take your time and do things in their own time! http://looseleafnotes.com

Things do tend to turn out better that way when you have the luxury. :)

Ah, Sleep - perchance to dream!
And to create whole new stories which will someday create deadlines to torture us.

It's a writer's life, no?

I'm glad to hear you had a chance to sleep a little, and to read. Neither of those are distractions, though: they're godsends and necessary to the creative process. Facebook? Not so much.

Now excuse me while I go to respond to this latest IM... ;)

Happy (Belated) TT!

Yep, social media is not necessary to the process, but man does it horn in on it every time! :)

Yesterday
Sorry I'm late as well, but I had a crazy day yesterday! Except for the sinus headache, it sounds like you had 13 lovely things to do yesterday. Have a wonderful weekend.

Re: Yesterday
It's not late as long as we all show up, right? *grin* Hope your weekend is non-crazy and wonderful!

I'd like some more of it myself! I feel like I could sleep until next week at this point.

I've had sinus trouble too lately. Ugh, no more sleeping with the window open. I hope you feel better soon

They're saying this will be the worst allergy season yet, even topping last year. It's already kicking my butt, even with all the rain. Glad you got a little rest and have been able to catch up on some things -- and sorry not to make by here last week. Life, ya know...?
