What Drives You Crazy?
I have another thought provoking question for all of you. Â Do you find it impossible to write solid thoughtful content when your loved ones are hovering around? Â For me it’s the non-stop chatter from either my daughter or from my husband that disturbs my train of thoughts. It’s hard to type a sentence with someone asking where the eggs are. Â Honey, they’re in the fridge… (Umm, where else would they be?) Â Or the best one of all, “What cha’ doin?”. (Umm, what’s it look like? I’m hunched over my computer. I must be painting my toe nails.)I try to go back to work mumbling under my breath so he doesn’t hear my irritation. *
The most heart wrenching one of all, and where I try my hardest not to get huffy, is when Hubby asks me what I’m writing about. Bless him, I know he’s just trying to be interested in what I’m doing but until I have officially hit the spell check and read what I wrote five times and/or hit the publish button then I really don’t want anyone to hear or read or know what I’m writing. What I’ve written is still in my private thoughts until I hit publish and make them public.Again, I try to go back to work trying to shake off the awful feeling of guilt for brushing him off when he was trying to be sweet and caring. *
When I give up on working around Hubby then EJ will find me and she thinks its terribly amusing to try to type with Mommy. Â When I’ve tried to get some work done with her around almost everything ends up looking caeAVC…LIKE.AgrfaWDwa thisaDAS. Â Then there is the constant unplugging and plugging in of my power cord. Â My computer doesn’t like it at all and will protest this invasion by slowing waaaay dooown so when I hit a key nothing happens. Then I re-type that key and nothing happens, again. Then it catches up and we have tttthiiisss.This is when I just shut the computer and give up. * Thus another day goes by without content. * Am I alone in this? What drives you crazy when you are trying to write or get something done?
