Today seemed to be filled with nothing but distractions for me, first being the fact that I have to do laundry, so I`m ready for when I have to go back to work on Wednesday.
I ended up making Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies this afternoon, for something different than my usual sweet treats. They are at least healthier than M&M`s that I normally snack on, when I took them out of the oven they were at least 1 1/2" wide instead of the usual 2 1/2" wide that I usually make, making them perfect for snacking.
After my cookies were made and I could finally start to focus on my writing to my dismay that`s when my greatest distraction decided to show up. He`s small and cute and only 9 months old, but oh dear is he distracting, not only does he want attention, but he also insists on taking his naps in my lap which makes it a little hard to write when your laptop normally sits there. Once he`s a sleep I can`t find it in myself to even think of waking him up, not only is he absolutely cute when he sleeps, but he also has this really cute habit of patting my arm while he`s dreaming.
It’s almost 10pm and my little distraction has yet to leave me, so I still haven’t gotten much writing done at least in long stretches. I’m starting to wonder what I have to do to get some alone time with just me and my computer, I’m hoping that he’ll go rest on the sofa for a while at least an hour or so.
I also seem to be distracted online as well today. Oh no it’s not facebook that is distracting me, but youtube.
I did a crazy thing in October I found this song that would fit so well with the story that I’m working on, so I added it to my playlist so I would have it for when I needed it. So now I’m busy listening to it and the rest of the playlist as I write and every time I get to a video or song that I don’t recognize I flip my screen over to see as to why, then I get so caught up watching the video I forget that I’m supposed to be writing.
Today I'm going to do something I haven't done, I'm going to show pictures of my little fuzzy distraction. That refuses to leave me home even while I write this post.
Have you had a day of distraction yet? Has anything been distracting you this month?
