You put your left leg in…

you put your left leg out. You put your left leg in and you shake it all about.

You do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around.

That’s what it’s all about!

Why, you might ask, am I transcribing the song to what may be the single most embarassing party game on the planet, with the distinct exception of musical chairs?

Good question. I think that only time will tell. Or maybe I just like to do the hokey pokey.

Or maybe I like to turn myself around.

See.. that’s a good lead in. I am turning myself around. I’m finally settling into this routine and I didn’t spend most of my writing time updating networking sites. Nope, I spent ten minutes (after getting up ten minutes late) updating them and checking e-mail. Now I’ve written on my book for thirty minutes and here’s how it went:

635 words written today. 5805 total in the book now.

And it’s moving along. The story is unfolding nicely. I’m really doing my best to build a family that loves each other and that is not dysfunctional. It’s fun to do.

Now I must go to Gold’s and do exercise-y things.
