What Day is it Anyway? Sunday, May 10th, 2020

My day today so far–9:50pm: 

First, happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there! Whether you’re in a country that celebrates it today or not, I hope you did something nice for yourself. We all deserve it. ❤

Alex woke me up with a hand-drawn card and a potted plant that’s been sitting on my kitchen table since I brought it home from my mother’s place last month. And my eldest son cooked me dinner (penne with chicken in a lovely pesto sauce), so that’s been my treat for the day. I feel lucky to have all three of my kids home with me. Such a blessing.

Aside from that, there’s really nothing new to report. I worked a bit on the prequel to Saddled, which I’ll give away to subscribers to my newsletter. Then it will be on to Book 2 of that series and hopefully Book 3 of my “The Great Dagmaru” series before Book 3 of the “Once a Week at Woody’s” series comes out. They’re all written; they just need editing.

Busy busy.

I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Why I’m writing this post:

Because if you’re like me and stuck at home already, or if you’re going to be like me soon, the days of the week are hell to keep track of. We have a wonderful community here on WordPress and all over the Internet as well, and I’m sure many people are feeling nervous and/or isolated. I want to make sure every one of us has somewhere to congregate and someone to talk to.

I want everyone to know that you can start discussions with each other in the comments, and if you’d like to write your own “What Day is it Anyway?” post, you can link to this one. Hashtag #WDIIA.

Let’s keep in touch!


What Day is it Anyway? #SoCS Edition Saturday, May 9th, 2020

Fear is a great motivator.

It’s easier to cave in when you’re scared.

Alex has an appointment this week. At a hospital. Imagine that. He doesn’t want to go because of the whole Covid-19 thing, and I don’t blame him. But I’ve cancelled the appointment twice already. And they assure me that there are no cases in that hospital.

But how can I be sure?

I can’t.

So do I cave?

Or do I insist?

Tough call.
