This is Lily on her bed. Lily has had a rough few days. Apparently, when I was out to dinner with a friend a few nights ago, she went a bit crazy with a toy. The Hubster was not keeping a close eye on her, as he so often neglects to (as you can tell, this is a very sore point with me). He did not notice any part of the toy missing when he cleaned up the stuffing, squeeky and fabric. Yesterday, fabric came out of her. Unfortunately, she has a sensitive system and this sort of thing can cause a set back for days. We are on day three of this.
Erik and I have not been, nor will we ever be, blessed with children. Until we are ready to adopt, our pets are our children. I worry over them like my brothers do over their human children. I had a wonderful day planned! The Hubster is on call and has been at the pharmacy most of the day. I have the music on, candle ready to burn and was going to do some rewriting this morning! I was excited about that plan. Not so excited about the cleaning of the house which was to follow, but that's okay. However, with Lily being sick and making frequent trips outside, I find that I can't focus. My worry for her has completely clouded my mind. Cleaning is getting done because I can do that and still obsess over my dog. Writing? Not so easy to dive into that forest and tighten things up when all you can think of is your sick pup. Perhaps when The Hubster gets home, I'll be content to let HIM worry over the dog he made sick and be able to go into the woods with my characters for a bit.
What about you - do you have things that distract you from your writing? What keeps you from diving into the pages of your story?
