This is what I call an I/me post.
Why am I whining?
1. I am seriously sleep-deprived.
Katrina Katie Kitten has required a lot of extra TLC and medicating as we try to get a diagnosis on her gastrointestinal problems. I get up with her at night, sometimes twice. I keep saying I’m going to take a nap in the afternoon when the kitten tends to sleep at least two hours straight, but I haven’t done it yet.
2. I am way behind on my To Do List (which is partly why I haven’t taken that nap yet).
We’re roaring up on April and the A to Z April Blog Challenge 2011, yet I haven’t visited hardly any blogs or left comments since the kitten got sick a month ago. I need a theme for my April posts, a plan, and some of the posts written ahead of time. And then there are the rest of the To Dos that need attention ASAP.
3. I haven’t worked on either of my manuscripts for months.
It’s time to regroup.
There’s nothing better to energize and motivate a writer than a writers’ conference, so I’ll be at the Northern Colorado Writers Conference March 11-12 in Fort Collins.
Although I’ll be home at night, Darling hubby will be primary kitty caregiver this weekend, dispensing meds and hopefully tending to any necessary night duties (insert a snort here).
Meanwhile, I have four days to catch up on my sleep, charge through the To Do List, and force myself to stop whining.
