You always seem to make me feel at home.

Route: Lakewood Park Loop
Total Distance: 4.15 miles
Temperature: 89º degrees

Another writing vacation at my parents' house in Lakewood. You know what goes poorly together? Strenuous yardwork in 90 degree temps followed by two Christmas Ales at a cookout, and hitting the sack at midnight in your folks' poorly air conditioned and (for some reason my wife and I have yet to understand) terribly dehydrating home.

But rise I did. Write I have. And I continue to, though it was necessary to first of all, run, which I have not done in a week (goodbye ocean, hello lake) and to visit Root Cafe to spend that Groupon the wife bought almost a month ago.

Meantime, the wife sent this reassuring link:

10 Ways of Thinking That Lead to Writing Procrastination and Rebuttals to Those Thoughts

Thought #11: I have to tell everyone about this in my blog.

Rebuttal: Who do you think you are?

I can relate to the unsolicited article being sent.

I don't own any kind of gaming console yet this week my Mother emailed me a WSJ article about a guy that works as an air traffic controller who plays video games before going to work. Mom noted that perhaps I might like to become an air traffic controller because clearly we both like to play video games and should therefore share careers as well.

Very frustrating

I have been misunderstood! I was grateful for the article. My wife and I support each other like that.

My mother, on the other hand, does send me unsolicited articles, about absolutely everything.
