I know you’ve all been waiting with bated breath to find out what I was up to while my computer was in the shop & I was forcefully kept off-line. (And if you don’t think that had me climbing the walls & pulling out my hair, you don’t know me very well. :hothot )
So first, I caught up on doctor appointments. Eye exam & my annual overall head-to-toe. (I actually waited until I knew I’d be out running around a lot to take the ol’ ‘puter into the shop to try to cut down on my cut-off-from-the-internet anxiety. Am I a smarty pants or what? :winkwink )
Once again, I am practically perfect in every way. :thumbsup My GP even asked if I’d lost weight. I hadn’t; according to their scales, I’ve actually gained a few pounds. :blinkie But that’s with boots & jeans & a winter sweater! (I really have to start scheduling these things for swimsuit weather.) When I told him so, he said I certainly looked like I’d lost weight…& then when I told him I was still exercising daily & even lifting weights, he said, “Well, then, you could actually be building up muscle mass, which would show up on the scale.”
So do we love my doc, or what? Most times you go to the doctor & they get on your case about losing weight…mine makes up excuses for the scale to be wrong. Awesome! And also ironic, since this is the same man who never said a word or even seemed to notice when I lost 100 pounds between visits. :beerlaugh
I definitely got antsy without e-mail access. It wasn’t a very good week for it, either, since I’d just sent off a bunch of different stuff to my editors & had no way of knowing if they’d gotten it, reviewed it, approved or disapproved, needed something else… And I had no back-up to the internet, so I really was cut off from the outside world. :stalker
But I got some reading done! :cantputdown Finished Mystery Lover by Lisa Childs & only have about 10 pages left of White Heat by Brenda Novak.
And I drooled my way through a few episodes of Hawaii Five-0, which is quickly becoming one of my guiltiest of pleasures. It’s not like me to completely miss a hunk-fest like this, but I actually just started watching this show & am now kicking myself soundly for missing it for so long. I love it! Could be the theme song. Could be the lush island setting. Could be the gripping storylines. Or maybe it’s the bevy of hunky leads. Yeah, it’s probably the bevy of hunky leads. I’m having a real problem splitting my fantasies between the three, let me tell you. And my darling Dwayne & second-in-command Jason are starting to get a little jealous. :devil
I actually had a really nice dream about my darling Dwayne one night. Nothing dirty…get your minds out of the Dungeon gutter, my smutty-minded Darlings…but it definitely had me waking with a smile. :love
I did laundry & made a bunch of phone calls (which I could still do, even without internet access *g*), & then banged my head against the wall when I realized that what I could have been doing with my down time was working on another Top Secret side project. It’s not contracted, isn’t for anything in particular, but I started it a while back & would love to have finished it. If only I’d thought of that before I unplugged the PC & took it away. Ah, yes, regret mixed with stupidity is a bitter pill to swallow. It doesn’t go down any easier with one of those luscious Everybody’s Irish cocktails, either.
