Monday, November 22nd, 2004 • No Comments on Beware of Emotional Women
I am a bundle of mixed emotions these days, with my scattered thoughts making my insomnia worse than ever and giving me horrible dreams of being trapped and not being able to trust anyone. I’m not a big believer in horoscopes, but I’ve had several in the past couple of weeks that have said I’m over-emotional and pushing people away right now. They didn’t say anything about wanting to hit people, which seemed to be my mood today. I didn’t, but I wanted to.
It’s Thanksgiving week, and while I’m not quite ready to list all that I’m thankful for, I intend to have a peaceful, relaxing week away from work while Sheri is here. This is, quite possibly, my favorite week of the year and I plan to enjoy it. For someone who doesn’t have a family to speak of, I am rabid about protecting my traditions—and my friendships.
I hope to keep working on my NaNoWriMo book in the coming week, but I’m not putting any pressure on myself. Today’s word count is the lowest it’s been all month, but I had a busy day and a very early morning tomorrow. I’m far enough along in this book that I know I’ll finish it, so I’m not going to be too upset if I don’t have a complete draft by the end of the month. Having said that, it’s still my goal.
There are good days ahead, I know that. I just have to get there. Until then, I’ll try not to hit anyone.
