Stuck In Park

Help! I seem to be stuck in Park and am not able to get myself back in gear.

As I said in yesterday’s blog, I didn’t do much at all Christmas Day except chat with some friends online, do an online jigsaw puzzle, and cook steaks on the grill.

My plan for yesterday was to get the pontoon boat onto its trailer and out in the driveway, but I just couldn’t seem to get myself motivated enough to do it. Maybe it was because it was still pretty chilly out, somewhere in the low 50s, or maybe just because I’m lazy. Either way, I had all the energy and drive of a sloth.

In fact, I couldn’t get myself motivated to do much of anything. After a breakfast of one of Terry’s delicious cinnamon rolls and a cup of hot chocolate, I answered a few emails and then opened my latest book manuscript and stared at it for a while. Then I put it away and goofed around on Facebook for an hour or so, answering questions in a couple of authors groups I belong to and deleting some rude comments in an RV group I help administer.

Finally, sometime around 5 o’clock in the afternoon, I decided to write this blog. And then I parked myself in my recliner and watched a little TV and snoozed a little (okay, in truth I snoozed a lot and watched a little TV). And that was about it. If I don’t get a move on today, Miss Terry may call a couple of neighbors over to help drag my fat butt to the curb. Lord knows I’m much too big for her to try kicking me there. She’d be walking with a limp for a month!

And in closing, here is another of our funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us.

  1. Nick, Everybody deserves a day off… or two or three! Enjoy! But back to writing asap! We will all miss you otherwise! You can’t write as fast as I can read! (And thank you and Terry for your reply to my last e-mail)!

  2. It’s the COVID Nick. It is keeping me stuck to my recliner way more than I used to be, I have plans to do something and all of a sudden it is dinnertime!
