State of the 'Song
Fierce oncoming headache. I have taken Excedrin and am hoping for the best. Otherwise, just generally exhausted.
Has consisted mainly of work, medicating the cat, work, "Elayna, go clean your room, do it now, put the laptop down, go clean your room", and work. April vacation week is especially made of suck because I am so work-fried and I have zero downtime; I came home at 8 last night and had to launch straight into dishes because no one else was going to. Hound the child, hound the husband, work, work, not a damn bit of writing. Not okay.
Other Than That
Yesterday ended up being a nice spring day. Actually walked from Central to Davis for lunch and coffee, and the speech went very well.
State of the Jack
Should have known it was too good to be true: They forgot to charge us for some stuff. Another $250 worth of stuff. *headdesk*
Jack himself seems to be okay except when we're medicating him. The other cats, however, are still hissing at him.

Monday 10:00-11:15: Is Science Fiction the New Reality?, with ktempest, Richard Chwedyk, James Frenkel, and Naomi Kritzer.
Who else is going in from Boston? Got your tickets yet? Recommended airlines? Has anyone flown Frontier? It seems to be the cheapest, and I already have a poisonous hatred for Delta, American, and United.
Wearing: An olive-green long-sleeved shirt that I think of as sindrian's color, jeans, bird on a wire socks.
Reading: The Mesh by Lisa Gansky.
Writing: Nothing this week.
Knitting: A basic garter-and-eyelet shawl on the bus; Hemlock Ring at home.
Planning: I seem to have lucked into an unscheduled weekend. Which will likely be spent hounding the family and struggling to get five minutes to write. Yes, cranky. I have reason.
