I’ve been TERRIBLY unfocused this week. I keep telling myself to put my head down, get to work , be more focused and then I sit here staring at the computer screen hoping that my muse will come along soon because I have things that I should and need to be writing and it’s just not happening.
Part of this is because my whole sleep schedule is all messed up. Part of it is stuff going on with work – wanting to secure the gig I had spoken to a potential client about or, if that failed to pan out, contemplating a corporate job that MIGHT be telecommute-friendly.
So, I am super-tired. I am unfocused. I have a plethora of things I need to get done and I just sit here, paralyzed, screaming at myself to do SOMETHING. It’s also helping nothing that I am feeling extra anxious and the anxiety feeds the insomnia.
Of course, there’s another F word that impacts my sleep. That F word is FELINE. Yes, loveable little Crystal likes to wait until I’m juuuuuust about asleep and then come and stomp all over me. And I love her so I try to not let it bother me. But then I get juuuuust about asleep again and she uses me as a springboard. I am luckier than Mr. POSSLQ, though. He not only gets stompled, he gets slurped, as well (apparently I am not as tasty… I think he may be saltier tasting than I am, though, which might be what attracts her).
We need to get her majesty in for her annual vet checkup. And I am sure she needs a dental cleaning, as well. But whoo! Dental stuff for felines is EXPENSIVE. I laugh at the fact that the vet uses general anesthesia to do dental stuff with the cat but then instructs you to keep up the feline dental hygiene at home. While Crystal is front-declawed (we got her that way, I’d never do that to a cat), I assure you that she would NOT hesitate to chomp you if you tried to clean her teeth (“Here Lady, let me show you exactly how much I do NOT need your assistance with my teeth!”)
So, yeah… I started with a post about focus and ended talking about feline dental hygiene….NOW do you see the focus issue?
