So, having cleverly extended #1 on the Tuesday To-Do List to “Sleep Unreasonably Late on Wednesday” — a strategy I recommend highly to those others who’ve had “Sleep Forever” on their to-do lists for a while — I had a leisurely breakfast with my lovely and talented husband and attending cats, answered a couple of emails and will soon retire to the Front Office to start the process of making the Penultimate Draft into the Ultimate Draft. This will be interspersed with laundry-doing because. . .necessity.
I do like working at home.
Thanks to those who have looked/are looking for descriptions of Val Con and Miri!
In other news, still house-hunting, and simultaneously looking at ways to perhaps make this house continue to work for us. Building an attached two-car garage might be one step, given that we could refinance at a lower rate. It seems like a huge project, but what do I know? Might also upgrade the kitchen cabinets while we’re at it, and screen in the existing porch, which strikes me as the most minor of all these possible steps. So. . .thinking about how to even approach that process, and keeping sight of the fact that, while none of those steps brings this house closer to town, if they make keeping it less intense, they might tip the balance.
In between all of that, I’m eagerly anticipating the arrival of Things in the Mail, including (in no specific order) two decks of Tarot of the Zirkus Magi, Girl Genius Volume 13, a couple of Loth Hoodies (because you can never have too many elven hoodies), and an album of hand-colored photographs and post cards from 1872-1912 featuring geisha (because. . .photographs! geisha!)
And I think that’s all the news that’s fit to print.
Onward, to the couch!
