I will have a longer, emotional post about the election later, but for right now: all of this
And I will also come back and talk about my new story
But oh my goodness, I am exhausted. I slept poorly on Sunday night, didn't get nearly enough sleep Monday night, stayed up til 1 last night - and slept til 10, which is unheard of. I'm headachy from the storm and can't kick my brain into gear. So I am just flat-out taking the day off. I may just curl up on the couch and knit what I'm calling Clifford the Big Red Shawl (Bolting by Stephen West
, one repeat smaller because I am 4'11" and it will already be ridicuhuge on me - at full size it would be bigger than me). Low-brain chill-out day. I may nap; can't tell if my body wants that yet. I've not eaten yet today, and I should do that first.
So yeah, I'm basically hung over from the funeral, my family, politics, gluten (Saturday night), story release energy, travel, weather, and sleep dep. I will have more brain and wherewithal tomorrow.
Very relieved, though, at last night. So relieved.
