It’s one of those Mondays where I’m having trouble being positive.
I took today off after Ad Astra to recover from the last two weekends of heavy socialization, a head cold, and a lot of learning. I was doing OK and might have stayed so had I got out of bed before 10AM. You see, I lounged about and let my schedule get all wonky. Normally I do this on weekends, but I remember to get my medication into me.
I didn’t realize I hadn’t taken my morning dose until I was in line at Walmart, which I was only there because I was looking for an Xbox 360 breakaway cable. Mine went missing and I can’t play Rocksmith without it as the guitar cable needs that piece to plug into the USB port. I was hoping to play it today. Instead, I got pain and fatigue.
At least I got pho today since I had just missed out on it last night when I arrived back in town.
I can’t seem to get the mall security to email me back despite sending them a copy of my receipt as proof that I was shopping there and not parking and riding. Where I could’ve gone in an hour on OC Transpo and actually come back, I have no idea. I wonder if there’s any hope in getting it canceled.
As I’m editing my book, I feel like it’s never going to be as awesome as I want it to be. I read the first bit of Ed Greenwood’s Hellmaw: Your World is Doomed and was astounded by the immediate transportation into another place. I want to be able to do that! I know I should definitely not compare myself to such a prolific writer, but damn it’s solid and wonderful. I should find his first novel and see how that one compares to what he is writing now. Everyone starts somewhere after all.
I’m still coughing. Been doing so since around the 22nd. I’m wondering if that will ever end as well.
I had planned to get so much more like laundry and dishes done today also. All I managed was getting a few things from the store and editing a chapter and a half.
So I don’t really know if I have a point here. The week has started off pretty crappily. I suppose that means it should get better from here?
It’s 9PM and I have yet to eat supper. I should probably fix that. Maybe I’ll have something light given the time.
Do I have enough clothes to get me to Wednesday night? I play this game way too often… Maybe someday I’ll be on top of that. I might edit some more while I snack and watch something on Netflix. Or I’ll play some guitar. I was really hoping to play Rocksmith. The cable is going to take a couple of weeks to get here.
Oh, hey I have dairy free chocolate pudding. The day is looking up 🙂
