I am trying so hard right now… I am exhausted. I just want to sleep and be alone. This is day 7 of 8. Tomorrow I will be working both jobs as I have a meeting at 7pm after working at 7am til 2pm. Things seem to keep piling up against me. All I want is some time off with nothing to do or worry about. And alone time. I feel sorry for my family because they want to spend time with me but I am around people all day and I just want to be alone. I am trying to keep my crabby factor at bay but…
I close tonight so I might get 5 hours of sleep tonight. I am not good at going right to bed after work. I need to feed Stella regardless and I try to play with her for a bit. Positive thoughts… positive thoughts.
I have warmed up to my memorial tattoo that I got for Essie. And the more I show it off the more I like it. So that is a good thing. I will (finally) share a photo of it on here. Despite it being in an awkward place it is healing fine. My artist was concerned about it rubbing all the time and not healing properly. I have to say this is one of the easiest healing tattoos I have had.
I don’t know if Mom and I are getting together Sunday or not. I want to atleast see her but it sounds like she might be too busy (which kinda hurts since I told her we would get together). But it is her birthday so I won’t say anything if she bails on me.
I did get some work done on my novel yesterday. The next big hurdle will be the development of two major backstory characters. I may include them more than a mere mention, if you will, but regardless I need to have full stories for both of them. So that is my project for this week. I have my pieces of paper with their titles at the top (I haven’t named them yet) and I am carrying that around with me to take notes as I go. I think I will try and make a concentrated effort on Friday before Chris gets up and then again before my company comes over that night (my coworker that is taking care of Stella while we are gone is going to meet her and then we will do dinner and a movie).
I had better wrap this up. I need to spend time with Chris and Stella. Thanks for reading and stay safe!
