Well, this is shaping up to be a stellar day. Went down for a nap last night at seven, woke up around 1am to discover that my son had broken out of his room, snuck past my husband who was working on his own novel and gotten into the bathroom. Thankfully he didn't touch any of the cleaning supplies we have under the cabinet, but I was informed as I was trying to pull myself out of grogginess that he had broken a candleholder in the toilet bowl, and the necklace I got from my grandmother last Christmas as well as the scissors had joined the shards.
Oh, and that he'd apparently been undetected long enough that his pyjama top was soaking wet with toilet water.
Managed to bang out another 1300 words for the novel, bringing my grand total up to close to 3600 for the month thus far.
Cleaned up the house a bit after finishing the work I'd set for myself and then took another nap on the couch. Woke up at 10 and immediately stumbled into the bedroom upon the request of the husband in order to sleep some more. I left strict orders to be woken up after an hour or so, but someone just let me sleep, meaning I got up somewhere in the neighbourhood of two in the afternoon.
Watched Dangerous Minds with Rick to try and wake myself up, then stared at the computer screen for fifteen minutes, trying to get my shit together. It's now almost 5:30pm and I've written maybe thirty words all told towards the count for the day. I set 2.5. I've got 1200 to go and I don't think I'm going to be able to do it. My head is pounding and even though I know what needs to happen in the novel -- I managed to outline the first four chapters -- I have no idea how to get there.
I think I may take a few hours off after dinner. Maybe watch the rest of Season 3 of "Lost" while brainstorming. I just hope this damned headache goes away. But I doubt it will until Jason goes to bed. He decided he didn't want a nap, and now he's cranky, so I've been listening to his temper tantrums for the last half hour and they're spiking right into my brain.
Off now. Have to make dinner.
