Well, so much for my weekend o' writing. Let's hope the songwriting mood strikes me tonight.
On Saturday, my husband had a session booked in our home studio (where my office is, too), so I went to my sister's house to borrow a Halloween costume and hang out all afternoon. By the time I got home I was feeling rather lethargic, but we had two Halloween parties to attend, so I got myself dressed and out the door by about 8:00 p.m.
We stayed a polite amount of time at the first party and by the time we left, I was yawning every 30 seconds. I hadn't had anything to drink, but I felt dragged out and completely unmotivated to drive across town to another party. Thus, I skipped my favorite annual Halloween party for the first time in probably five years and...went to bed.
I slept twelve full hours, had a late breakfast on Sunday, and then went back to bed in the middle of the afternoon. All throughout the day, I'd wake up for a while, eat something, watch some TV and then it was back to sleep.
I don't know if it was a delayed crash from all of the party preparations from the previous weeks or if I'm coming down with something. Either way, I seem to feel okay today. Let's hope I can make it through work, get the trick-or-treaters out of the way and settle in for some solid writing time tonight. Wish me luck!
