Crazy morning! Woke up about 4:45 a.m. to pitch black darkness, which means...no power. This is like the millionith (ok, I'm lying, but it feels like it!) time the power's gone out since the beginning of the year. It was out for about six hours. Ugh. When your daughter keeps yelling "I want toast!" it's hard to explain why she can't have it. Though since the power has gone out a million times, she has a better understanding now than she did a couple of months ago.
Then I'm sitting here minding my own business at the laptop once the power came back on and up pops Cheetah the missing cat on the table that butts up against the house. Like no big deal. He's been gone for 5 days in some terrible weather. Where the heck has he been? Jenna mentioned in a comment maybe he got taken in by a crazy cat lady. Maybe he did, and was able to make the great escape.
So I called my mom to tell her about the cat coming back (she cares about these things - her cat was kidnapped once for a week) and she's like "I've been trying to call you." My sister in law went into labor this morning! My new niece or nephew is on her/his way! So exciting.
It's not even noon yet and I feel like all kinds of stuff has happened! What's coming next? Well, I know a baby is. And maybe, if I can get myself together, I can start working again on the Modern Extra story I'm 14k words in. Life has been constantly interrupting, though. Makes it hard for me to focus.
My goal for the day, then? FOCUS!
