In an attempt to get my production level up, I'm starting to log my word count. This week's tally (started on Saturday so I can show a week's worth):

Sa-450 Su-1981 Mo-575 Tu-593 We-1603 Th-633 Fr-2101

I'd been hoping for more. My Thursday really bit the big one. I'd expected more from myself since I didn't have to report to the day job, and then life happened. I think next year if there's a gathering that I feel socially obligated to attend but have no real interest in going, I just need to say no.

I went to a thing at a restaurant that took two and a half hours to serve us, and my portion was puny, the food was nothing special, and I paid $17 for the privilege. It was the two and a half hours that got me. (We'd made reservations and chose from a special limited menu and even ordered two weeks ago, but none of that mattered. I think it took her twenty minutes to tally the checks. She could have done that while we were eating our puny food.) My social anxiety was just through the roof. I couldn't get out that door fast enough. Luckily, I had plenty of small bills and change, so I slammed my money on the table and bolted as soon as I got my check.

During the meal I went to the bathroom, called my boyfriend and did a Gordon Ramsay imitation. Even that didn't help.

I'm off to the in-laws now. Happy holidays, all!

I feel for you, hon -- not only do I not like waiting for my food! but I don't really do social occasions. *Huge Hugs*

I think waiting for food would have been not so harrowing with closer friends, but this was with an exercise class, plus some of their spouses (strangers), so...ugh. What do you tell people to get out of social things?

(Smokin' hot icon there!)

I have a small circle of very good friends who understand my madness! Otherwise I never make any firm committments -- "I'll do my best" tends to work.

Yeah, the icon is very pretty, isn't it?
