Sinful Saturday: The Vacation I Shouldn't Have Taken




The past weekend my husband and I committed some pretty sinful acts. In which I mean we bought things we couldn't afford, spoiled ourselves with food and drink, and generally just pranced around the city for hours on end. Not only was it sinful and decadent, but it was absolutely perfect for me and my muse.

Since I've gotten back from that four day vacation, (two of these days working 11 hour days in a new environment, so they still count as vacation) I've been putting in "normal" word counts instead of the stressed, overly edited hell I've been in for the past two months. It still takes me all day to get the words, but I'm more willing to sit at the computer rather than give up. A little of the joy had come back from my little writing adventure which makes all the financial sins we made on our vacation perfectly and utterly worth every penny.

This little outing reminded me that though writing is my full time job, I still have to have fun with it to get things done. There's no other ways around my muse--she's a stubborn broad. So, in the future, if that means being extra sinful with everything--well, I'll just say it was research, now won't I?


(Hmmm...this belt looks an awful lot like...nevvvvvverrrrmind)

How do you spoil yourself?

It's the little things I enjoy most of all...the little sexy looks from across the room, sweet little notes left for me. I don't spoil myself- but love to be spoiled with legs and back rubs...ohhh, that's the spot.

Yes no matter was is going on, sometimes we just have to have fun, even when it's a sinful indulgence we can ill afford...!

I like going to a casino. Spend a little "me" time (and a little money - LOL). Or just watch a movie by myself with my dogs.

Oh, I wish I could spoil myself a whole lot more than I get too (not much), or had that right man to spoil me... I'm a natural Scarlett O'Hara, who never got to indulge herself that way, or be spoiled...

Yep, nose to the grindstone all the time doesn't work!

I love curling up to watch a great movie or one of my favorite shows like Justified as a reward for hitting my writing goals.
