Weird day. (LJ only)

I'm having one of those days where good news doesn't make me all that happy and down news has a powerful effect. Some folks on my friends list are struggling at the moment more serious problems than I have, and I wish them the best. Me, I have these nagging little issues that are just bringing me down.

But it's my anniversary. I have flowers to give my wife (and I told the florist she's a painter so he chose a variety of interesting shapes and colors) but nothing better. An email from the asst copy chief at Del Rey sent me an email asking about some inconsistencies in the copy edits of Game of Cages, which is pretty freaking embarrassing. And I continue to be way behind deadline.

And I'm tired. I know my wife is hoping for some quality adult time tonight--just sitting on the couch together watching TV would be a welcome break from the running around and tag-team parenting we've been doing. Still, tonight is one of the nights she puts the boy to bed, and I was hoping to get an early shower and bed time.

We'll see.
