Happy birthday to idonotlikepeas and time_shark!
Hello to new reader ken_schneyer!
State of the 'Song
I'd been getting a few nights of okay sleep, but last night was made of fail. Sleep study next week. I shall persevere.
I got derailed from my schedule yesterday for the best of reasons - we got a call to check out a house we're very very interested in. Y'all. It's actually more space than we currently need, which means a guest room, office space, a craft room, a game room... Judah and I were wandering around all like "there's more?" Also, it's a single-family with a little yard space for gardening, a three-car garage, and a courtyard with a stone bench, and the (absentee) landlords are cool with cats and us painting the interior. It's $100 more than we'd set as our maximum; Judah would be paying the same rent he's paying now, and Adam and I would still be paying less. There's another place to look at today, but I'm really sold on this one, to the point that Adam's already filled out his application (he's going out of town; Judah and I can fill ours out tonight).
Positive energy please, and if it works out, um, packing parties at my house every day this month! Anyone who helps gets dinner. Judah and I like cooking in large quantities. :)
This would pretty much get rid of the rest of my big stress. I mean, I'll still be writing the novel from hell, but it's the living situation that's really getting to me.
* The Susan G. Komen Foundation decides that breast cancer prevention and treatment is only for rich people.
* So Planned Parenthood is having a fund drive.
* "To protest a bill that would require women to undergo an ultrasound before having an abortion, Virginia State Sen. Janet Howell (D-Fairfax) on Monday attached an amendment that would require men to have a rectal exam and a cardiac stress test before obtaining a prescription for erectile dysfunction medication."
* ‘Don’t Be That Guy’ ad campaign cuts Vancouver sex assaults by 10 per cent in 2011 !
Oof. Thing is, I don't know if severe exhaustion is going to hit at 8, like it usually does when I've been up since 4. If not, house stuff til Adam leaves for the airport ~9:30, then writing until Elayna gets home, then working on that college spreadsheet til Judah comes by to pick me up to look at that other house. Plans tonight are pretty much just menu planning, shopping, maybe catching a few more episodes of Babylon 5, and assorted late-night deliciousness. ;)
