Let’s do the Time Warp Again

Let’s do the Time Warp Again

It’s just a jump to the left.
And then a step to the right.
With your hands on your hips.
You bring you knees in tight.
But it’s the pelvic thrust…
That really drives you insane
Let’s do the Time Warp again.

I need to go back in time. I don’t need to go back for long – just a week or two so that I can catch up on my life. I’ve been busy and despite being in the present, I have no idea how time flew past so quickly. Let me see…

I spent time at the local food bank reorganizing the shelves. One day.
 
I attended a family wedding. I wore a new dress, had my hair done and a manicure. I danced, had a few drinks and had a wonderful visit with my family. One day.
 
I attended the Brampton Fall Fair, where I sold my book, Forever Love. Over four days, I sold 29 copies, gave out my business card along with chocolate kisses. I talked about love and romance with men and women who stopped by and asked about my book. Thursday and Friday were slow days in our building, so various merchants dropped by and bought a copy of the book to read. By Saturday morning, one of them, Judy, had read the book and wanted Book Two now. The others were taking their time with the book. They would come back to my table and ask me questions about Quinn. They wanted to know how I came up with the story. They were hooked. I loved it. Four days.
 
This past Sunday, I attended WOTS (Word on the Street) in Toronto. For one hour I gave out signed copies of Forever Love. I talked about romance and love that lasts forever with so many people. One man, Jason, didn’t believe love lasted forever. The woman standing in line beside him disagreed. She had just celebrated her 41st wedding anniversary and she said she was still in love. I’ve been married for 31 years, and I still think love can last forever. One day.
 
For one week I have tried to get through Chapter 16 in Book Two. What a struggle it was to write a believable fight scene. Never mind the dialogue and story line that had to work. One week spent on 25 pages – successful, but time consuming. I am happy with the results. Now on to the rest of the story. Seven days.
 
In the meantime, I’ve kept up with the laundry. It’s washed and dried and folded. I iron when necessary. I need that time warp to get that chore done. I’ve managed to get my banking done and buy groceries. Two days.
 
I need to add in a day or two when I can meet with my friends over breakfast or coffee. I need to see them face to face and not just leave a voice message or post on their Facebook Page. I need a day to catch up on my reading. Make that two days. Yes, I do read. I need a day to find my office. Every time I find it, I lose it again. I think my office will be a two day job. I’ll give it three days, just in case. Seven days.
 
So here it goes. If it works, I’ll see you last week.
 
It’s just a jump to the left.
