Manic Monday

The dog and cats aren't getting along. The kidlets don't want to listen to me. There are places to go, phone calls to make and things to do... It must be Monday!

I've started taking the weekends off. Not from writing (I still work a little every day), but from everything else I normally do during the week. I don't blog or read blogs. I might post a Facebook status message or Tweet, but that's it. I must admit it's been really nice! All of those things are fun, but they really are a time drain. I'd rather spend the two days my hubby has off with him, not staring at my monitor!

I'll be sure to preload the Crossfit workout since the end is near!!!!!

I had my final hand therapy session today. She had me do a paraffin wax treatment that left my hand feeling oh-so-soft and ultrasound. I can't believe how much the sessions have helped. But... the therapist doesn't recommend me climbing for the rest of the year. I'm bummed, but I'd rather be pain-free and have full use of my thumb than hurt it again by climbing too soon.

I'm continuing to work on the revisions, as well as think of my new story. It looks as if I may be turning it into a Christmas tale which will take some re-plotting.

A heat wave is returning to the PNW, too. The temperature should hit 100 degrees tomorrow. Looks like I'll be sleeping on the couch again!

How is your day going? Manic or mellow?

My day was mellow. We're in the midst of a heatwave so I know what you mean. If I didn't have to go to work, I would be house-bound during our heatwave.

Good for you for unplugging on the weekend! I don't check blogs on weekend either.

Good luck with the revisions and your wrist!

Oh I love christmas stories!

Manic, poor Nanuchy was at the vets again yesterday (that is 3rd time in 2 weeks sigh) She had really bad diarrhea. So she is on 3 additional meds. Trying to get her to eat since she lost another lb since Friday. Had to steam clean bedroom carpet since she had gone everywhere. Her way of asking to go out is to sit and stare at you which isn't very effective in the middle of the night sigh.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

I'm babysitting my granddoggie. My daughter got a new job and has been working an 80 hour week (salary so no overtime arrrghh)but she finally got two days off and was going to do dinner and a movie with her hubby who was able to get off for the day. He always feels guilty leaving the dog alone if they're enjoying themselves lol.

We got our first 90 plus degree weather this past week so we gave in to having some A/C. At least we have that option thank goodness.

Glad the treatments are helping your hand. the computer most definitely is a time drain so I don't blame you at all.

Monday was pretty mellow. Sorta. Today? Is going to manic as heck. *sigh*
Glad to know the therapist has helped you. Better safe than sorry on climbing.
Best wishes for dealing with the heat wave! HUGS!
