Clearly I need to do NaNoWriMo this year and get this sorted. Maybe whatever dogs we wind up getting will agree.
– Me, just last month.
We do not have any dogs yet, though we have met several in the past month, as we’ve been settling in here while trying to untangle ourselves from the other house. If all things go well, we’ll be out before the end of this month. Considering that we spent three hours today at the old house trying to reconnect a dryer vent that had mysteriously come undone between our move and the time the buyer had it inspected … yeah, it’s been like that.
Fortunately, that should all be squared away tomorrow. One positive outcome of this move is that we’ve begun to be more realistic about what we can accomplish ourselves in the time we have available. We fought with the dryer vent for three hours. We swore at it. We lost blood to it. We gave up and called in a professional.
Speaking of sorting things, yes, I did sign up for NaNoWriMo this year. Thanks to work and school and all of the other things I do in and around work and school (e.g. parenting, laundry, gardening, sleep), I won’t have a lot of time for it, but I think I can do some damage within those chunks of time, as long as I manage to keep them out of the same daily soup bowl as everything else.
Will I fight with this for thirty — er twenty-nine days? Will I swear at it? Will I lose blood to it, and eventually give up?
Maybe. Or maybe not.
Let’s find out, shall we?
I’m tackling a completely new project, rather than trying to make sense out of any of my old ones. I can’t make up my mind whether it is science fiction, or dog help us all, literary fiction, so I’ll just write until it sorts itself out.
