Friday at last! I came home last night to an empty apartment and a very needy, abandoned kitty. I was very tired; I had to get up to an alarm almost every morning this week already, and for whatever reason–certainly psychological–whenever I have to wake up to an alarm I always feel like I am dragging all day, could just fall back asleep at any moment. This morning, however, I was able to sleep late and get up when Needy Kitty decided he’d waited for breakfast long enough. So I actually feel very rested this morning, which is incredibly lovely; and I just have to get through the day today and then I have basically four and a half glorious days off. Huzzah! I am hoping to get the draft of this manuscript finished either today or tomorrow, before getting the final level of polish on, so that Wednesday morning I can start submitting it to agents.
I also hope to get some of these short stories finished over the next week, and there’s of course the incredibly thorough house cleaning that needs to be done once and for all. I am trying to decide if it makes sense to stop at the grocery store tonight on my way home or to go tomorrow–I have an appointment uptown tomorrow, so I have to go up there anyway and I have a prescription to pick up as well; so might as well make a day of it, right? And I need to start paying the bills. I woke up a little later than I would have liked this morning–but I clearly needed the rest, and I love being able to go into the weekend feeling rested than starting out tired.
Watching television in bed last night was quite lovely, I have to say.
And so, sorry to be brief on this last morning of June, but I did sleep later than I should have, so I need to get back to mining spice. Here’s a Friday hunk for you, to slide you into the weekend.
