I wrote 1272 words today. It doesn't seem like that big of a deal until you consider that my 10-month-old is sprouting some huuuuge new teeth, and so most of my day was filled with dealing with this, and the piercing sounds that go with it:
On the upside, I am completely and totally spoiled. Yesterday, I got two incredible presents from two different, awesome, people. I've been pretty bummed in general lately, Elle knew, and hooked me up with the most incredible tangible and non-human thing about Columbus-Ohio. Read about it here, you guys. Incredible, emotional, and fattening. Perfect.
Also, my husband hooked me up with an early Valentine's Day present. It is a netbook so I can continue writing long after exhaustion has taken me to a permanently horizontal position each evening, and first thing in the morning for my semi-conscious ramblings. He shrugs and says, "It's a glorified typewriter." Which is incredible because that's exactly what I need. I have never actually uttered the imbecilic words, "Hey honey, I'm writing a novel," but he knows everything about me. Even the parts I would rather he didn't. He is like the Jewish, handsome Sherlock Holmes of our relationship. Yeah. He even put Scrivener on the thing for me. Love him.
