Writing Day, part III did not happen. Although I’m going to write some more today, I’m not pushing myself for more than an hour or so. For some reason, I didn’t sleep well last night so I’m feeling a little groggy today. So I’m going to spend the morning waking up, playing with my kids, paying bills, kind of mindless stuff. Because the mind is definitely not there right now.
I found myself dreaming about Social Security last night. And this morning, I’ve been reading about the Iraq war and how horrible it is and how the election isn’t going to solve anything and might, in fact, make things worse. And my brain is just too muddled to even think about it. I’m going to go play Lord of the Rings with my son. Killing orcs always wakes me up.
