Sheesh. Life is always so hectic these days, especially with baby. I’m loving every minute of it, but sometimes my best-laid schemes fall to the wayside. I ended up with about 2500 words on Saturday, not too shabby, but yesterday despite all intentions to the contrary I just didn’t get any writing done. Most of our day was taken up with our company’s yearly “picnic,” which was actually held inside at Dave’s & Buster’s this year. It’s mostly an excuse to show off one’s kids and this year we actually had one to show off. Yay!
Afterwards we went grocery shopping and then home where I took care of the baby while husband went to the gym and then tidied up the house. I tried to get some writing in with the baby playing on the floor, but about the time I got into it he decided he was hungry and I had to give him dinner. He was pretty needy after that so he and I had some mommy/son cuddle time and he fell asleep snuggled up next to me. Always good!
I’m making up for it today. I’ve managed to get about 1,000 words in today at work and hope to get some more in, unless something comes up. Tonight I’m leaving up in the air. I would LOVE to write more, but it depends on how much time I have left after getting baby settled and working on homework. I have a take-home test to finish and a first-draft paper to get in order.

Oh! I got my long hair chopped off on Saturday. I’d been growing it out for almost 3 years, since before the wedding, because husband likes it long. Decided I’d had quite enough of it and it was my turn for awhile. Like it much better already. I can actually STYLE it instead of pulling it back all the time!
