I could post something political today. My thoughts on the inauguration, or historic moments in general, or whatever. But I figure ya'll have quite enough of that as it is today, so instead, I shall regale you with Tales of My Weekend.
Um . . .
I shoveled snow? Yeah. Definitely did that. Oh--and brought in some more wood for the ol' wood stove. I watched movies (Hairspray (liked it a lot more than I thought I would. Fun music, nice dancing. Three stars), Dumbo (Classic--and a lot stranger than I recalled. Three stars), Zodiac (Yet another three star movie. A little too rambling at times, but an intriguing plot, and very well put together.) and War,Inc. (I'm going to give this one three and a half stars, just to mix things up a bit. John Cusak in a pseudo sequel to his brilliant Gross Pointe Blank. This movie's not for everyone, but if you're a Cusakaholic like myself, it's gravy.). I wrote quite a bit. Played bass, cleaned the house, played with the kids, went shopping . . . lived life. It was a nice weekend, and I got some much needed sleep.
Feeling much less worn out today, although I'll admit a certain level of frustration with my writing. There are ups and downs, and right now I know I'm in one of the downs. Feeling like the book's garbage, yada yada yada. It'll be good to be done with it--get it out the door, and then on to the next one. Good think I like writing so much. :-)
