Summoning 14: Really? #DoMagick

So I had 6 days in a row off from the day job that I’d allotted for writing time and time with my writing tribe and husband, and unfortunately, two of those days required me to spend time taking care of family to-dos (Friday and today) and canceling my plans to attend a writing panel tonight.  I knew this going into this morning’s ritual so my heart wasn’t in it. Especially since I had to get up so early and again – I am totally NOT a morning person. I am going to take this as a sign that everything happens in its own time, and everything happens for a reason. I’m not going to beat myself up because these other things are important, too, I just don’t know why they always happen when I take time off the p/t day job to focus on my full-time job. I will try to get some writing in today regardless, though admittedly it’s hard writing in waiting rooms etc… But it’s extremely good for people watching. (There’s always an upside! I am an optimist after all.)

Not too thrilled about this afternoon’s vet appointment for the parents’ dog, though. We might have to put her down. 🙁

Anyway, I’m calling this day a draw.
