Eventually Not Worth It

Rolling out of bed this morning was a chore, even with a Very Helpful Australian Shepherd getting her nose under the covers and doing her best to root me out like a pig roots truffles. I’m glad she feels some affection for me, but this helpfulness is sometimes…not helpful. Especially when I don’t want to get out of my nice, warm, comfy nest.

But she was right, there’s a lot of work to do today. For one thing, tomorrow is She Wolf’s release day! And there’s the Perry short story to look at copyedits for, tax stuff to send to the accountant, bringing in a new character in Roadtrip Z, some yoga, research reading for the Veil Knights book, taking Miss B on a short run to work out her fidgets and my own, wordcount on two erotic novellas…

…yeah, I might as well just go back to bed. I’ve also got to clean the dishwasher today, always a favourite task. Cue up the vinegar and scrub brushes. I’m pretty sure Miss B will want to “help” me do that too–there’s probably a wonderland of smells in there for her agile, curious little snout.

I also spent time this last weekend retagging a bunch of my music in iTunes, as well as trying (and failing) to add a wiki to the website. I was defeated by a logo that wouldn’t load and decided to scrap the whole thing. Lest you think me lazy, this was after the problem consumed me for three solid hours. The difference between me now and me ten years ago is Present Me will eventually sometimes decide something’s not worth it instead of simply continuing for the sake of continuing. Past Me had not yet acquired that trick, and it caused her a lot of heartache.

Time to make a list of things to do and cross them off one by one so I don’t get overwhelmed. After, of course, I run off the fidgets currently besetting a very helpful, extremely bossy Miss B.

Over and out.
