Getting Nothing Done Today

It's nearly 10am, and I haven't gotten anything done yet today because my oldest daughter and grandson are in the room. I guess luckily the 10yo went upstairs to do his zoom meetings instead of staying down here. Now she's playing Sims.

I try to use the two hours in the morning that the 10yo does his zoom classes to write and stuff, but I can't when she's around, and she doesn't care that I'm trying to work. My writing is not considered to be working to my kids--they just interrupt me whenever they want and I never get anything done.

...

And now it's nearly 11am, and I still haven't finished this journal entry done, nor have I started my other writing that I normally do in the morning. Now I have to do that after lunch instead, but eating makes me so sleepy. I'm tired anyway. I didn't sleep well last night. For some reason, I didn't feel really tired when it was bedtime last night so was up past 12:30am. Not sure when I fell asleep, but it was late. Then I woke up at 7am when my alarm went off.

I guess that was because I took a nap yesterday. I just couldn't stay awake after I ate lunch. I'm guessing today will be the same.

...

All right, I give up trying to write this. Everyone is in here talking, and I just can't concentrate with all of this noise and distractions. I think I'll go have lunch then get the 10yo to finish his homework then go upstairs and try to work on that outline for the sequel story.

Good luck with your writing! Hopefully you'll catch a break soon and be able to write again.

@iyazo So far I still haven't gotten anything done. I get caught in this cycle of being unable to work because of distractions then I get too tired to work and spend the rest of the night fighting to stay awake or taking a nap which does nothing to alleviate the sleepiness. I want to write, but can't find the time or focus. Maybe today, but I'm doubtful since my daughter and grandson are down here again.
