I haven’t posted anything in ages, I know. There is a lot going on right now that’s keeping me away. Work on the house, work at work, and a couple of top secret items I can’t talk about just yet.
And, yes, I know it’s lame to reference a top-secret item without actually giving up the info, but I just can’t yet, okay?
Thing I can talk about, though, include, the fact that a man named Dickie is currently working on fixing the render and repainting the front of my house, following which he will fix our hallway so it looks nice and also fix the walls in our much neglected second bedroom.
Jeremy is in Bangladesh right now for work. But he gets back very soon.
My grandmother has been moved from the hospital to a nursing home, where she will probably stay for the next few months as she recovers from her recent surgeries.
And it’s October, a month I have been dreading, because October marks the anniversary of the month I spent in Michigan last year when my dad was in the hospital. It feels impossible that this year has gone by so quickly and so slowly. I’ve got plans in place to get through November (NaNoWriMo , lots of time off work, Gillian Welch concert) but have made no contingencies for this month, which was kind of stupid of me. Hopefully the building works on my house and prep for NaNoWriMo will keep me distracted.
And on a more frivolous note, Oliver tried to eat my toes yesterday morning. Apparently rather than sleeping I should have been unlocking his cat flap and letting him out into the world. My cat can really be a jerk sometimes.
