Today is Kris’s birthday! I am officially four years younger than her now…until my birthday, that is. Kris works a lot and it’s very difficult for her to get a day off. She gets two days off a week, but every once in a while she’ll get a call on one of those days off asking her to come in because someone else called in sick or whatever. So, she did the over-night shift Sunday night into Monday morning and asked for today (her birthday) and Saturday off. She always has Sundays off, so she thought it would be nice to give herself a little weekend.
Of course, her boss told her that she would have to come in again on Monday to do the closing shift if she wanted the weekend–you know, in order to give her her full 40 hours. Kris said, “I don’t care!” So she has a weekend. She had today off in which we ordered out to eat, did presents, and had cake.
First things first: If you haven’t already, take a moment to say a quick prayer to those who have fought, are currently fighting, or have died to save us and our country. Thank you.
So I had a bit of a hard time trying to motivate myself to write today. I don’t know where it came from, but having the day off from work made me kind of lazy. I literally did nothing today. But I did write a little bit. So I guess that’s better than nothing. I’m keeping up with my routine.
I wrote a little over 2,000 words today, but it took me a really long time. I wanted nothing to do with the computer today. I want to play video games. But Kris still needs to write for the day and she isn’t home, yet. By the time she gets home and hits her word count goal for the day, who knows if she’s going to want to play or not. It makes me sad.
Okay, I think I’m just tired because this post is mad short and I’ve been writing it for about an hour already.
I hope everyone is doing well in NaNo and I’m glad most of you liked the character profile I posted yesterday!
