The worst first--Facebook has been a tremendous interference lately. I am really trying to avoid it as much as I can. I made the mistake of posting my opinions and was called names. And I got sick of reading posts from people I admired that were full of guttural and potty language. (Yes, the biggest offenders were writers.) I ended up unfriending some, I don't need that icky stuff in my mind.
The good is we had another great-grand born into our family--makes 18 all together. And did you get that I said great-grand? Yes, my grandchildren are having babies--and one of my great-grands had one, and another great is going to be a father soon.
We have two great grands living with us, darling girls. Believe me, they do liven up our lives. Took time out the other day to play three games of UNO with the four year old. she's really good at it. (But I won all 3 games--a miracle, because she almost always wins. Probably beginner's luck)
Hubby is beginning to show his age (me too, for that matter, I've slowed down considerably) and when he goes to the doctor's I need to go too because he doesn't always get or remember what he's been told.
Because of my BIG family, I want to do things with them. After all, not too many kids have their grandma and great-grandma still around. I need to enjoy them all while I can.
And then there's the in-person promoting--that is necessary, fun, but takes time away from the writing.
I also volunteered to help reorganize a local writing group--which also will take some time away form my writing.
There are so many other things that I do, some writing related, some family related that take time away from what actual writing.
Oh, and there's the biggie--doing my income tax. Will start that soon too, once I'm sure I've gotten all the forms.
Okay, I've belly-ached enough, time to get back to work.
How many of you feel the same? Seems like I don't have near the time I used too.
One of the latest good distractions--Daniel Adam.
