Happy birthday to hypnagogie!
State of the 'Song
Tired. Relieved but sad. Only woke up once last night, and got back to sleep immediately, thank goodness.
One thing I am so looking forward to? Getting enough sleep. Left to its own devices my body seems to prefer waking up at around 7:30-8:00. Which is too late for dayjob-'song, but is just fine for writer-'song. It's 7 now and I'm still kinda staggering and forcing myself into a semblance of functionality. So yeah, really looking forward to being able to listen and work with my body!
I know I'm still a bit in retreat/non-social mode; this is partly because there has been so much to do. sindrian just moved his entire life here, so there's so much to help him establish. And Elayna just finished 10th grade on Monday and will be flying off to Florida tomorrow, so we need to get her camp shopping done today (she'll be here for just a few days between Florida and Explo). Two concerts this week, moving sindrian this weekend, friends in town... there's been a constant stream of stuff all month. THINGS ARE MOVING SO FAST. Should be a quieter July.
So my main priority will be my writing, yay. I'd grown to resent my writing when I didn't have time for it, but I got back to it during my rest week last week, and I am There again. So after July 8, that'll be the larger part of my days. Also I will get to actually do the house-stuff I want to do and not be constantly crushed under the avalanche of mess-and-no-time.
In addition, I have some really cool projects coming up with omnisti and sindrian that you'll hopefully be hearing about soon. But yeah. Massive structure changes!
Work. I put off the yarn store and shopping for Elayna yesterday because I so desperately needed a nap, but I *must* do Elayna-shopping today. No out-of-the-house plans tonight, but plenty of in-house organizational stuff(EDIT and emilytheslayer is swinging by). I am building my structure.
I may start to tackle that bind-off on the blanket tonight. From my reading, it seems to take an average of 5 hours. Also it needs to be blocked really hard. Like, I may need sindrian to build me a PVC frame. HARDCORE KNITTING Y0.
