Sometimes SH*! Just Happens...

Why is it you get plans made, and all of that seems to go South for the summer,  I guess! It's been that way for me all week long. I get my day planned out. Get up early, do my walking, check on the plants, and had trash day today. From there, everything I had set my mind to do, just fell off the wagon. It was cloudy. So, I felt I didn't want to wash rugs and then it rain on them. Then the sun came out! So, I go put the one that is still wet out to dry and it gets cloudy again!! My plans were to wash some rugs, but I had planned to play catch up here and write on the 3rd book. I wanted to let those know that may have read my Facebook post from yesterday, kind of what the "jealousy" issue is. Mainly, it seems very "coincidental", that every time I write something, or I come out with new poetry, or talk about certain subjects as far as Lupus, FM, CFS, RA, MS etc, this person just happens to say something also. This has just been going on and on. What I don't understand, is why? Here or on FB or where ever you want, you can have a group, a blog, anything you want, and tell people anything pertaining to any and every subject in the world! Mine may suck! So, why would someone take my stuff, or if I write a book, they have to suddenly make a huge writing of something and tell all about it!? Do I honestly care? No, it is a compliment to me. But, I cannot fathom "JEALOUSY"!!!!! It is one of my main pet peeves.!!! I been there , done that with a few women for bosses, that could NOT stand anyone that may in any way do something that could lift them up the corporate ladder. They were so damned concerned over greed and jealousy, that the job was not the issue. I went through it and I took that damned abuse for too long. So, for me, doing something such as this, is being JEALOUS! Of what???? of Me!!!??

So, I was put out yesterday and I posted in general my feelings on the subject. I never mentioned a word that would point fingers, I won't do that, never. But, what I wanted to do, is whomever is reading this, if they feel "guilty", then guess what??? It goes without saying a word.... I didn't even say they are on FB! I write here, and I write other places, and it could be someone more locally, that happens to read my stuff. Anyway, now that it said. It is done and over.

Back to my freaking schedule! I feel like heck. I have a horrid sore throat. I am still running around my house and yard in an old crappy shirt and a pair of boxers! I have not even found time to change... I noticed our sheets seems a tad "off"... so I washed them, which laundry was not in the plans today. Picking up limbs, and chasing the neighbors new little puppy back to its house 50 times a day gets time off the clock. The puppy is tiny. I guess a "tea cup" Chiwauwau...and even though they have the fence appearing like there is no way "Gi Gi" and it is a boy, LOL...could get out... guess what, he does!! Now the funny part is what happens next. The dog will not let anyone pick him up!!! LOL!!! He just runs round and round like a game to him, and just gets close enough, but not enough that you can catch him. It is hysterical watching them chase the puppy around the yard. Well, then he started coming over here. Every time now he hears my voice, he comes running. At first he did me the same way, then I could walk to their gate and he would go in for me. So, at least I could make it that far. Well, then after a few days, he started letting me pet him and pick him up!!!! OMG! Here is the NEIGHBORS puppy, and comes to ONLY ME!!! HAHAHA!!!! Okay, today he did let Jim pick him up once, but for the most part, me... and not even their kids. He will not go to them. I feel sorry for them sometimes... but then it is just too funny....

So, after chasing the dog several time home, trash day, then finally washed two rugs, washed the sheets and my favorite blanket, tried to decide if I should make something sweet! We finished off that awesome, if I say so myself, Poppy Seed Cake, with chocolate almond frosting, and it was delicious. Then I wanted to clean the floors where the rugs go. Of course, from there this, that and the other needs to be cleaned, put up, or whatever may happen in a day at our house. Even though I went through all of that, I can say I did get some WRITING DONE!! So, I am certainly not up to "Stephen King" daily word count but I may make my own daily word count keep me on tract. Actually I read that his DAILY WORD COUNT to write is 1500 words!!!! Not "characters"... words!!! That is huge to say the least. But, I shall never profess to being anywhere near any of our great writers. What is nice though, is getting a tip or two you can use from them to help your own writing skills get better. I know I have said this but I like Natalie Goldberg. Her book "Writing Down The Bones" is my mantra. I have read it numerous times, and the one thing that truly hits me is that she says to WRITE! It does not matter if it is online, in a notebook, with misspellings, on the sides the paper, whatever, as along as you write everyday! That does not mean it has to be good stuff... it maybe crap! But it is what keeps those juices flowing... that is what keeps you in gear and motivated... thus it makes total sense to me...

I promise more... lots more to come... count my words please!
