Just before Zoe arrived on Sunday, I cleaned the dishes & the counter so that we would have space to work. By the end of the adventure, just about every dish I own had been used, and many of the bowls used and washed several times. More garbage was generated in one afternoon than my household normally produces in a week, and I did not have the opportunity to do my laundry because I was busy making specialty foods. As always on Sunday nights, I was awake late watching TV (though not as late as normal due to a well-timed re-run), and have consequently found myself napping in the afternoons when I get home from work. I’ve fallen behind. My kitchen is an awful mess, I’m running out of clean clothes, and when I get home from work I’m too tired to address these issues.
I had some other things come up recently that stood in my way of getting Modern Evil finished and online by my own deadline. Today I spent the whole day working on catching up on that, and at least the site is there. There are some problems with the layout from where I’m sitting because of the unpredictable ways IE5/Mac interprets float, but other than that, everything came together in s reasonable way. A few more days late than I had hoped, but still usable.
I feel like I’m typing this so I don’t have to type about the real issues. So I don’ have to face my real feelings. I feel like I won’t be as likely to type anything on Modern Evil or FYTH in May because I’ll want to focus all my words into getting the novel done. What ever happened to my post on that? Huh. I guess I’ll have to take a look for that around here somewhere. I know I started something.
