Hey gang, lots going on this week with my girls, The Butterscotch Martini Girls. So pop on over to the blog I posted at the Happily Ever After Thoughts site and check it out. There is also a great opportunity to win a free eCopy of one of my books…your choice. So follow this link and find out how you can win today.
Well, it seems that when you write for a living, every day has some new distraction. Today’s distraction at my house is a 90 pound hound who has wandered in from a neighbor’s house.
She clearly has puppies and needs to get back to them, but we are waiting for someone to come home and unlock the gate. Unfortunately, I don’t think she used the gate when she came to visit.
My dog, Skay, and the rat-killing duck, Tubby, freak out every time they see her. Skay won’t stop barking at her and Tubby paces the pen quacking. Probably a good thing the poor interloper doesn’t speak duck or her feelings might be very hurt.
And the even more unfortunate thing is that she really wants to sit in my lap while I work. Ain’t happenin’! That is why she has that forlorn look–she is really workin’ it!
That’s Thursday’s story, doggy and distracting, and I’m stickin’ to it. Hang on real tight now, ‘cuz we’re gonna go real, real fast!
…But today is not one of those days.
The day started off with good intentions, but quickly went to hell in a hand basket! Ever had that happen? It’s frustrating. So…to make you all feel better about your day, here’s just one of the things that happened in my day.
You remember Stupid Girl? Well, she stops by every now and then when I least expect it, just to say Hi and see how my day is going. Then she does something monumentally stupid. But the good news is that I needed something to blog about today anyway. LOL
I was sitting on the couch working…emails, brainstorming, BMG planning…lots of stuff going on. My plan was to write today, but my inbox was stuffed so I decided I had to get caught up on some stuff. So I was pounding away and emails were flying fast and furious, and I hadn’t bothered to get dressed. Some days I spend the entire working day in my jammies. Then it dawned on me that I had invited a friend over to have dinner this evening, so I needed to put clothes on before I lost track of time and was sitting here in my jammies when my friend arrived. Here’s where it goes south…
Lady Godiva on a grey dapple horse
I set my work aside and got up off the couch to go get dressed. Then Stupid Girl showed up and I lost my place. Three hours later, I realize I’m sitting on the couch in my pajama top (still) and my panties. Apparently I’d lost my place before actually putting on pants. LOL Now I’m off to finish getting dressed. This is the second near-miss clothing incident in the last week. By this weekend, I’ll be Lady Godiva riding the streets on my horse naked!
Have you ever done this? Ever walked out of the house without your clothes? In your bra (like I did last week)? Without your pants? Without your shoes? Leave me a comment and tell me your dressing horror story so we can all laugh at…er…with you. 🙂
That’s my story, naked and nutty, and I’m stickin’ to it. Hang on tight now, ‘cuz we’re gonna go real, real fast!
