How is it Sunday already?? I will amend the adage of “Time flies when you’re having fun,” because I’m not having fun, but it’s flying anyway. Several good things have been happening, to be honest, though. My prediction that the rental house I’m inhabiting (and was told to keep ready to show against my inclination) is massively overpriced is proving true. It has been on the market a week tomorrow, and only one person has wanted to see it. Even if interest picks up, I am holding to my insistence that there will be boxes everywhere.
Also, packing is going pretty well. There is rampant grouchiness among the denizens of Testosterone Palace, but it is understandable. Husband and I have to go to a conference for several days the third week of June, returning one day before the putative closing, so everything has to be packed beforehand. That means we all have to live out of suitcases sooner than we wish, and for longer than we would like; even worse, our sons don’t get to go anywhere to enjoy the inconvenience.
As for writing, it goes well, too. I’m a JuNoWriMo rebel, and had planned only 5K for the month, because of the craziness of life. I’m at 3551 at the moment, which makes me very happy, as long as I don’t fall into the trap of comparing word counts. I can easily get depressed if I let myself, so I have to make sure I concentrate on the positive. Also, I’ve had to do a lot of editing this past week, which makes me think that I should just be an editor, and not a writer. I have to remind myself that I can do both.
