I taught my nephew how to ride his bike, took him to swimming lessons and searched for insects with him.

I've submitted now but really should have got my act together and got a beta. I know I'll regret that.

To sleep... ahhhhh heaven.

Waiting on my beta...
I took a nap, did a partial water change on two aquariums, and watered houseplants.

Reading this, reset my password on here, twice..ran some errands, deciding on the perfect music, set DVR for GOT, checked twitter, Facebook, instagram and Snapchat multiple times! Now I'm stressed, have 300 words typed and I hate my ending but I haven't even written it yet! 😑

Trying to motivate myself to instill changes from my betas, when I have it under 1,000 words and with a decent flow, but still know the betas made a good point and I don't want to sacrifice any darlings to birth new ones. That, and watching The Grinch on Netflix.

I'm done now, but I spent the better part of Saturday and today's mornings and afternoons doing some plumbing, or shopping for said plumbing. Not by choice, not for fun. Because I had to.

But I'm done now. 

The text. Not the plumbing.

Lol. You're going to need to read my story when we can post them. Seriously. You won't believe it.

I spent most of Saturday working (I'm a realtor so weekends are busy!) and thinking over ideas for the story. I spent most of Sunday working and managed to sneak in about 3 hours to write up the story I came up with...and spent then the rest of Sunday night realizing I used a storeroom instead of a stockroom, but didn't have time to come up with an entirely new story since I had a bunch of paperwork to do for work.  Oh, and spent quite a bit of time both days admiring pictures of my new granddaughter. :)

What's the distinction? I thought they were two different words for the same thing.
