It’s still officially Wednesday for another hour, so this still counts.
This has been THE WORST WEEK EVER. I swear, Murphy’s Law has been in full effect! Every dumb little annoying thing that can happen HAS happened. Mix-ups on appointments, faulty communication, shutting tiny toes in the car door, knocking over a bottle of soda that blew up on the carpet. The America’s Next Top Model finale was a total letdown. I left my computer in the other car. The babysitter ate all of my frozen Junior Mints, whatever. Big things (Ugh, people) and tiny things (I lost a contact! Nooooooo!) Seriously, I’d laugh if I wasn’t so afraid that a bee would fly in my mouth and sting me. But you know what’s going really well?
Seriously. I was plugging along in a fairly slow (for me) fashion. My average speed on this particular project is writing, editing, and polishing a chapter a week. I figure that I’m about halfway finished, and I’m tackling the difficult, down-and-dirty chapters that make me sit and sigh wearily afterward. They’re tough on the psyche. They’re tough on the heart. The chapter that I dreaded the most was the chapter that I wrote today. It’s been bubbling…no, that’s not the word. It’s been stewing…no, it’s been clawing in the back of my mind for a while, and when I sat down to write, it just poured out. I wrote a chapter and a half in 50 minutes today, and when I was broken out of my reverie, I did that, “Huh? What?” zombie shuffle that one does when torn out of a deep sleep. It took a while to come back to earth after that. And I feel absolutely fantastic.
This week still has it in for me. I know this because the Universe has told me so. But today? I totally rock. :D
