Deliciously Promised: An Accounting of Day Two

Delicious Disclaimer: Read Monday's post (if you haven't already) before you read this one!

Day 2 was a checkerboard of silk and burlap.

The days started out smoothly, but hit a rough patch when the website I need to access for work was down for three hours.

I didn't want to immerse myself in writing my book. Murphy's Law dictates that as soon as I did, the site would come back up and I'd have to switch hats again.

So I spent two hours web surfing, doing the girls laundry and eating lunch. Basically, putzing around being annoyed with myself for not being more productive. I finally decided to go to Target (even though it wasn't my errand day) to pick up a few things. But there in the hairbrush aisle I found another silky square! I ran into my wonderful friend, Amanda, and her daughter, Genoa, and we chatted for a few minutes.

I rode that silky square home and kept it close while I got back to work -- the site was up again!

The rest of the day went on with more of the same ups and downs. By 11pm, I was exhausted and exasperated.

And as for today? Let's just say it was extraordinarily difficult to get out of bed.

It was nice running into you too! (It's funny, I think you're the person I run into here the most). Looking forward to our momdate on Friday!
