So, here I go again — free writing. Much too exhausted to think, and I need to work on upcoming projects, research, newsletters and such, but — I’m too tired. Last night, I awoke at 3am — the usual time. I fought to go back to sleep, afraid that if I fell into a deep sleep I might not awaken at 7am to care for my puppy. Our precious little Maltese is getting her teeth cleaned today, along with having a few extractions. She is such a tiny little love bug, I hated to put her through the procedure, but the Vet assured me she will be fine. It is now 1:35pm. In less than two hours I will have been awake for 12+ hours.  Little Princess’ procedure was scheduled for 11:40am. Suppose I am being a worry wart, but I really wish the phone would ring, just to reassure me that all is well. Isn’t there a cliche somewhere about ‘no news is good news?’

So, here I am just free writing with a blank mind. According to writing experts, free writing is a way of inspiration and good training for writing. Not today! My brain is clogged. It needs to download, but I don’t have a smart card to download it to — nothing is computing.

‘Get some sleep’  friends say. Easier said than done. Gees, it is a day for cliches, isn’t it!

To heck with free writing today. Think I’ll click the remote to my Ipod and play some rocking music. I could use some exercise, but I’m just so tired!

How long does it take to clean a precious pup’s teeth?
