I am here. Just barely.
Honestly gang, the Real World is kicking my ass upside down and sideways. I’ve got so much piled on my plate right now I’m surprised I haven’t snapped yet.
I haven’t, right?
In addition to having a ton of extra work IRL, I have to sew the Offspring’s Hallowe’en costume, gut this house prior to dinner guests arriving on Saturday *and* clean out the step-Offspring’s bedroom because Boy Einstein and I have had the brilliant idea of renting it out (these are short-term rentals related to, and due to the nature of, BE’s work). As a result of that, we also need to renovate the basement bathroom. And there’s a tenant who’s already claimed the space beginning in January. Oy.
I would give up sleep, but, well…I can’t. You know how it is.
In other news, I finished my first round of edits on Party Starter. We’ll see if my dear, sweet editor sends me another round or not. Considering I did the first set whilst sneezing, coughing and sniffling, that second set may be inevitable. I’ll keep you posted.
The stress of all of this is making me want to eat. I am currently repeating my mantra of I’m not hungry. We’ll see if it actually works.
For now, I’m going to catch some zzz’s and do everything over again tomorrow. Whee!
