Am I crazy?

My birthday was last Thursday, and all week my husband kept asking how I wanted to celebrate. He was so earnest (a quality that has flowered as he's grown older), I didn't have the heart to tell him my fondest wish was to work on my WIP.
After work, we went out to dinner with our youngest daughter at the new Mexican restaurant. (I live in a small tourist town--new restaurants are big news in the winter.) The food was good and surprisingly authentic. I had a real chile relleno, and the complimentary salsa was loaded with yummy fresh cilantro.
Afterwards, I helped my daughter do the nightly cleanse of her healing (Yay!) breast tumor wound and watched a movie with my husband. It was a nice night, but I sorta wished I was sitting in front of my laptop wrestling with my WIP.
Am I crazy?

  1. No, not crazy, because I'm sure we all know what it's like when we're dying to get on with our writing and other things intervene. But in this case, I'm glad you had a good meal with your family - and a belated happy birthday for last Thursday :-)

  2. Yes,happy birthday Ana!

    And no, you're not crazy. It's nice that you got to spend time with your family at a good restaurant, but some days are meant to be spent as we want them to be spent, not how others want us to spend them. Of course, assuming you didn't marry a mind reader... :)

  3. Not at all crazy. When the muse hits, it really gets after us to keep writing.

    It does sound like you had a lovely day though...Happy Birthday!
