A Balanced Life is…Difficult


I didn’t look up from the laptop. “What?”

“We need to do some cleaning, and then let’s take a walk. Suki’s bored and wants to go out. Your legs are going to forget how to work if you don’t get off the computer.”

“But I just got this nifty new program to play with. It’s called Scrivener and it’s like a virtual notebook for writers. I can keep all my research, notes, and photos at my fingertips! Also, G+ has been jumping this morning and there’s new stuff in the writer’s groups.”

“You’re absolutely right.” I playfully licked his cheek. “Sure you want to clean right now?”
