I didn’t mean to disappear this week, but it was one of those weeks:
Time change – I detest this time change. I always end up losing hours and hours of sleep for days, no matter how I prepare, and end up sluggish and unresponsive for a few weeks. I wish we could just stay at Daylight Savings Time year-round. I say this every year, of course. The good news is that I finally slept last night, and slept in quite late this morning, yay!
Car – My car, which is only a couple years old and has only 50k miles on it, went from fine one minute to not starting the next over the weekend. We had to get it towed to a mechanic shop that we trust. Turns out, I needed a new fuel pump for just under a thousand bucks. Oy.
House – We finished contract negotiations on the house we’re downsizing into, and all went better than expected. Yay! At least something is going well, right? Fingers crossed that our December 4th closing goes on as planned.
Quiet – Things have been so hectic for so long that I basically fell into quiet mode. I sat down a lot, doing puzzles or staring out the window, listening to some long audiobook rereads of favorites. There’s still a lot that needs to get done, but this week I needed some time to just sit, rest, disengage, go quiet for a bit. Possibly this might continue with regards to the blog. Between planning/packing for a move, prepping a house to sell, the upcoming change in our holiday plans, and anticipating Morrigan returning home at some unknown point, I might just keep listening to old rereads and staying offline. In any case, I should check in weekly, and I’ll be back at some point. I always am. If I don’t see you much before then, happy holidays to everyone!
Completely understandable if you need to get away from the blog for a while. The only thing keeping me on right now is participating in Nonfiction November and another readathon coming up, Thankfully Reading Weekend. Otherwise, I might be gone from my blog too.
