Tuesday. Blarg

Okay, so I was having a pretty good day--beautiful weather, blueberry muffins, peace and quiet, 4000 words--and then Scout stood up on his hind legs and got lovingly clawy, as he does, but this time he actually cracked my mp3 player (hanging around my neck) open--lengthwise down the casing, so far open that the battery and the volume buttons fell out from the inside--and shredded the headphones I was wearing before I could stop him. I nearly cried, because it's just been that kind of week and I guess I'm already tense anyway. I managed to fix the mp3 player after half an hour of cursing at it, but the headphones are dead. Sadly, they were 90% dead already and I was going to replace them--they're wonderfully cheap--but now they're just useless, whereas they used to be my last defense against family distraction. Also, his claws kind of hurt. So that kind of ruined my day. And I expect potential interpersonal conflict tomorrow, so that could suck as well.
