Morning not totally fruitless

2 Feb

In my last post I talked of how witching hour had come with little to show for it. In the spirit of celebrating small victories, I’m happy to report my morning has not been completely unproductive.

I did spend half an hour updating my reading list on Goodreads. Check out the widget on this page for more, with recent additions including:

Mount Pleasant, Don Gillmor
Diary, Chuck Palahniuk
Drunk Mom, Jowita Bydlowska
Foucault’s Pendulum, Umberto Eco
All My Puny Sorrows – Miriam Toews

These and more are chock full of mindful insights, pearls of wisdom and tales of relatable woes. I may still be crazy, but I’m a better crazy for my reading.

Now, for the rest of the day. The laptop is sitting on the dining room table still, almost taunting me to open it. Why am I so afraid to do even that? The answer to that question is for another day.


Snow day dumps 24″ of excuses on my day

2 Feb

It’s a new week. Monday just afternoon, well past my witching hour with little to show for it.

It was the snow that threw me off my game. Mondays of late have been fairly productive for me, giving me the comfort and freedom of solitude to plan out my week, even getting to my work before my 11:00 a.m. witching hour.

Two feet of snow dumped down overnight and both my wife and the boy are at home today. Without my solitude I missed my planning time, I let my wife get the boy’s lunch packed and off to school. I was out of the routine I’ve been working hard to maintain, and my witching hour seemed to come early today.

Normally I’d channel my inner Hemingway and write off the rest of the day. But today feels like it might be different. If I get out of the house, just maybe…
