I should be writing magazine articles right now. But I keep finding other things I "need" to do. Laundry. A glass of water. Give the dog a bath. (That one was a necessity -- I simply can't work if my house reeks of the dead animal and cow poo Baxter rolled around in!) A chat with my adopted soldier on Facebook. A nap. This blog. Hopefully my self-discipline will kick in soon, because my deadline is looming and these articles don't write themselves.
The March issue is at the press and will be available for readers sometime next week. It looks like another good one. There's a picture of a blonde, curly haired little girl with a horse on the cover -- no, it's not me, but it sure brings back memories.
