Actually probably technically, the whirlwind began some time ago. However, it’s beginning in earnest this week. Tomorrow, we close on our new house. Two weeks after that, we begin our cross-country move. Yesterday, we gave away our couch. The apartment is completely dismantled at the moment. All the carpenter ants have come out to play (sigh). Everything’s a mess. StressStressStressStressStress.
I already said it once, but this time I mean it even more strongly: I doubt I will be around much over the next month. I’m getting further behind on my feed-reader and will likely put it to bed completely soon. Sorry about all the wonderful posts I’m missing! I’ll try to keep up as long as I can. Then there are the books. I’ve barely read a thing. I managed one audiobook in the first half of June and I imagine there will only be one or two more books left this month. I have some Top Ten posts lined up for the next few weeks, but otherwise, I’m running on fumes.
That, and I keep injuring myself. Seriously stupid injuries. This week I managed to 1) scald my lower lip with boiling water while testing if pasta was cooked through, 2) overfill my coffee pour-over to burn myself, and 3) knock my clumsy hand into my coffee mug this morning to spill everywhere on my desk, plus all over my hand and thigh. Jason says the universe is telling me that to stop drinking coffee. I think the universe is telling me to either get more sleep (unlikely these days!) or go out to buy iced coffee! 😀
So I have no mooring in this maelstrom right now, but I’m floating by. Trying not to worry too much about things like studying, writing, eating the right foods, blogging, reading, etc. Trying not to fill up my plate with unrealistic expectations. Planning for fun-stuff in San Antonio, including some housewarming parties for friends and family. Yay!
Do I seem scattered? Hrm. That’s likely to get worse. Just to warn you, friends. I promise I haven’t disappeared. I’m still keeping up with all of you as best I can. But, you know, whirlwind, and all that jazz.
