Sleep helped some, but not looking for work this morning helped even more. I know I should be looking everyday, but I couldn't face it today. I would like to keep what little self-esteem I have left, if it's all the same to you and not looking for work, while counterproductive in some ways, is the best thing in others.

And yes, those others do include cleaning. The bathroom no longer has that odd aroma to it that no airfreshener could touch (ew!). I even made the effort to throw the shower curtains and window covering (which is just another piece of shower curtain to keep the wooden frame and sill dry and mostly mold free) into the wash machine. Some laundry detergent, vinegar and the throw rugs (hey, they were dirty, too) meant my clear vinyl liner is back to being clear again. Now all I have to do is a quick sweep and I'm done. Yippee.

Oh, and since all the other cool kids are doing it...

The measure of a true writer: being able to write when the baby's fussing beside you because she's tired and won't go to sleep.

I've just gotten around to finally putting entries into the "memories" thing...one about work that sums up how I feel about where I work and the job that I do in less than 25 words, and the two writing ones, mostly so I don't have to go searching through the archive to find them (nor will anybody else if they're interested in reading them).

And maybe, just maybe, I'll get more of my novel written and possibly post another of the sections (that are work safe, at any rate)...
This is part of the novel I'm currently working on. It's called Fragments and the section is called "Summer". To save space on your friend pages, I'm putting it behind a cut. )

Well, that's what I have so far (for that section...I do have one completed, but it's far from work safe, if you catch my meaning). Most of that was written tonight. Woo hoo! :) I tell you this, though. It's bloody difficult to think like an eight year old boy.

Cut To Save Space )
I'm so very tempted to give up writing completely. Go work in a factory somewhere and just give it up. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy doing it and I would love nothing more than to eke a meager existence out of it, but right now that doesn't seem very practical.

The baby takes a lot out of me. So much that it feels like there's nothing left...no motivation, no drive, no creativity...nothing.

It looks like it's back to the phones when MatLeave is done. Oh well. It was a nice dream.

I just realized that even though I haven't really written anything in the last two days, I don't really care and that it would be very easy to just stop. Old habits, like apathy and laziness, die hard, I guess.

Okay, that was very strange...LJ just logged me out without me actively logging out.

I realize I've not posted in a couple of days. And it struck me that I really have had nothing of any interest to say. Now I have to go and try to start a novel ([livejournal.com profile] the_daily_rant and I are doing the delayed NaNo together).

It's going to be a long unproductive night.
