So . . . things have taken a turn around here. I’m just going to list from mildest to worst:
- Saturday is supposed to rain and/or snow, which means the trip to the zoo is out. Hoping the little guy doesn’t remember the promise.
- Sunday is the NYC Marathon, which means traffic will be terrible going anywhere near the city. So zoo won’t happen that day either. Maybe next weekend.
- My parents left last Wednesday for a 3 week Asian cruise. They returned this morning because my mom broke her elbow and needs surgery. Needless to say everyone is both worried and a little annoyed. So things are going to be thrown out of whack for a while, especially since someone keeps forgetting she’s down a limb. I’ll be helping my dad keep an eye on her. Thankfully, I’m still planning on doing all the cooking for next week and a half. Longer if need be. Honestly, I think this will only be a day or two of figuring things out before we get into a system. There’s plenty on the DVR and on her Kindle to keep her out of trouble.
This does mean that my editing and online activity will be in a state of flux. It could remain untouched or it could lead to days where I’m ‘missing’ until the night. I will admit that I got used to typing on the big desktop. Now I can realize just how tiny my laptop’s screen really is. I start my final edits for ‘Curse of the Dark Wind’ next week, so I hope to finish that by the end of November. When will it be released? I’ll let you know since there are delays on every front just like ‘The Compass Key’.
So, that’s where I’m standing now. I think. I got new glasses yesterday for the first time in over 5 years. I’m still not used to everything being so bright and clear. Transition lenses too, which are cool. Guess that’s the highlight of the week until Halloween where I escort ‘Olaf’ around the neighborhood.
