… that the renovation of my bathroom / bedroom is done this month. I’ve been sleeping on the couch since I returned from Utah in early June. Here it is, August 1st, and I’m still on the couch. Yes, the contractor had a vacation scheduled in the middle, the permits were jacked up for God knows what reason and yada yada yada. The charm of it all is wearing off. (As if any existed, right?)
I know it will be super when it’s done. I just wish it were done now as opposed to a month from now. My need for quiet space, apart from everything else in the house feels heightened because I don’t have it.
What else is going on?
Duty and I spent 3 1/2 days at the beach and it was so so nice to be away from the dogs and construction and whatnot. I didn’t sit by the water as much as I wanted (couldn’t get my lazy ass out of bed early enough) but that’s okay. It was good to be in a different space.
I posted on the front of PracticallyIntuitive that I’m over at my new space now. It feels good to leave that behind. I took off all the ways to work with me so all that’s available to read is the blog. That was huge for me to do. But it was so damn incoherent with what I’m doing now that I couldn’t take it anymore. I may eventually go back and do something different with it (not giving up that domain ever!) but for now, it’s just there.
FTR, re: the election – I’m still behind Bernie Sanders on whatever he chooses to champion (#ourrevolution) but will very reluctantly vote for Clinton because I’ve no interest in being part of the coming apocalypse should Trump get into office. I truly feel like 2016 is turning into the year we all thought 2012 would be. Chaos x infinity. And yet, here we all are.
Lately, I’ve been into the 3-year old trial of Jodi Arias. I read “Conviction” by Juan Martinez because I saw him on an episode of Crime Time and was fascinated by his strategy in the courtroom.
Excellent book (I zoomed through it) and it’s been interesting to watch the trial footage knowing why he made the decisions he made in how he handled the cross examination of Arias.
(Can you tell that I’m procrastinating like a big dog on all the other things I have to do? At least I recognize that!) Like I said, Mama bit off way more than she could chew and is doggy paddling her way forward.
