5 minutes: Untitled

Today’s (totally) optional prompt: Groove? In it or out of it?

5 minutes go...

Thanks Erin Margolin for telling me to free write and I didn’t have to follow the prompt. I just left Walmart and my nerves are shot. As I tweeted, “I had to go in four different directions for Drano, toothpaste, coffee and a newspaper in Walmart on Super Bowl Sunday.” I could have made it another day and done without the newspaper but there was not enough coffee for me to make one cup tomorrow morning. And that’s not starting off good for a Monday. Now I am prepared.

The prompt is about your groove. It almost going on a year, that my husband and I have been together in the house on a full-time basis. He is retired from the USMC. Not having the house to myself had completely turned my groove upside down. I help him with his (our) photography business and I work to run the household, be the mom, wife all while trying to promote The Christopher Chronicles and write. It was so much easier to do those things, and I was more efficient when I had the house to myself.

It’s been pretty good for the past month. I wouldn’t have wanted to know this time last year that it was going to take a year to get use to this but I am glad the wrinkles are getting smooth out.

Times up.
