Diphtheria, tilapia, and peanut butter cups

Today was productive but annoying. Productive on the home front, that is. Not so much on the writing front.

I took my son to get a vaccination he didn't need. Yeah, he was happy, and I was vindicated. I was positive he'd had it, but it wasn't on the shot chart we got from the clinic in Alabama. Unfortunately, he forgot his ID card (partly my fault, of course, since I only reminded him once) and now I have 30 days to bring it in or be charged for a visit for nothing. Jeez.

We did drop off the last bit of packing paper at the recycling center. No more piles in random spots around the house!

We also hit the grocery store for fresh fish for tonight's dinner, along with a few bags of Reese's peanut butter cups. Both very necessary. Unfortunately, we forgot about the grocery bags until three hours later, after a trip to the pool. The candy was salvageable; the fish, not so much. *sigh*

I wish I had a decent excuse for being so scatterbrained today, but I had plenty of sleep last night. Maybe my new plan to go to bed earlier is messing me up. I'm trying to get the boys (and myself) back on a decent schedule before school starts next week. No more late night writing/blogging/reading sessions.

Until I fall off the wagon and stay up till 1am.

Really, maybe I perform better on my night owl schedule, but for now, I'll settle for a few peanut butter cups and hope tomorrow is better.

Tell your friends!

    LOL! You have so stepped into my world… (I have a photographic memory, I am just out of film! ) Hope you have better luck on sticking to the early schedule than I did. I made 2 nights! And I don’t even have kids to blame, mine are on their own!

      I love that line about the photographic memory, Linda. I’ve been on a quest to stick to a “better” schedule for years. Mine suits me just fine, but not the rest of the world. My family is the only thing keeping me in line.

      I do love being up early, but *getting* up is another story altogether. Thanks for chiming in. It’s good to know I’m not the only one! 😉

    I loves me some late nights but also struggle with easing into the day. Maybe more peanut butter cups are the answer. 🙂

      I think they’re the answer to most problems, spleeness. 😉 I’ve always leaned toward night owlishness, but especially now when the kids are in bed and the house is quiet, I get my second wind and feel like writing. Thanks for stopping by!
