Rainy weekend

The hurricane that was supposed to smack us upside the head on Sunday never arrived, but most of the day yesterday was spent under a steady downpour. I think everything is turning green, including our fence and any spare spots of ground. I think I saw some patches of green on our cat...

I had one of those weekends were I just couldn't get caught up. I still have some more reading to do for my workshop, but the bulk of it's done. And I keep wanting to sit at the computer and do some writing -- after the past two months, I feel like I have to, for whatever reason -- but I just can't get that motivated to do so. Probably because the stories I want to work on have been pulled from my just-finished novel, and I think I need some time away from it. I need to write something new.

Or just read for pleasure again for a while. I think I'm going to read some Neil Gaiman stuff for fun -- starting with his Neverwhere and then reading American Gods again, which I don't remember very well from when I read it a few years ago. But I do like a lot of the ideas in there. All research for the next novel, of course...

Between (and during) rainstorms this weekend, Elizabeth and I did manage to get a baby registry up and running at Babies'R'Us (which showed up like magic over at good ol' after we were done -- buy early and buy often!), and that wasn't quite as overwhelming as I feared it would be. At some point we decided dogs was going to be the theme, which I think is cool. But, man, I tell ya, you'd be surprised at how much STUFF a tiny little child requires. Unbelievable.

And that's about it. Just slogging away at work, trying to stay awake -- we started back at the gym again, after a three-month hiatus, and I'm feeling it now. 5:30 a.m. is gonna come WAY to quickly tomorrow morning... Later!
