News from the homefront

Not much writing done this week, unfortunately.

But, we are in possession of a new bedroom suite. So, I spent the Monday night after Ravencon moving the furniture around in the den and guest bedroom to get the dresser and armoire out of our bedroom. Delivery went pretty smoothly and now we actually have a matching bedroom suite after only 15 years of marriage. Huzzah!

Unfortunately, we broke the glass in a large picture I had framed about 20 years ago. I thought we had all the glass up.

I thought wrong.

Nothing like getting a sliver of glass in the ball of your foot. They say, the bottoms of your feet are some of the most sensitive spots on your body. I'd like to add my vote toward that belief. Geez! Also, I bled like a stuck pig, so I had to stand there, holding my foot up in the air with my hands cupped around it, while wishweaver got the stuff to clean and bandage my wound. Yeah, there was an exciting start to cleaning the room.

But, it's done and all the glass is swept up (99.9% sure . . . glass is vicious when it turns on you), so we've only got a few boxes to go through and all the stuff we've been moving around the past 15 years will have been sorted through. Mind you, we're not getting rid of EVERYTHING, but we're being as ruthless as we can be. We need to contact some people to haul off our old copy machine and some other big item stuff we don't want anymore and then it's just a matter of deciding what's going to live where.

I am writing (my writer's notebook is getting filled pretty fast), but I haven't transcribed it into the computer here, so I don't count it as actual writing for any of my projects. (I need that banghead smiley from Chiefs Planet in the worst kind of way.) However, according to my self-proclaimed goals, I have 64 days left to finish the first draft of CSD: Dragon Couchant, so I better get motivated and get this puppy done. . . and finish my edits to Harbinger, and finish my edits to The Demon's Head and get those assignments done for my two college classes . . .

Obviously, it's time to quit whining and get to work. Literally and figuratively.

More this evening.

Hey, it was great to meet you at Ravencon! Although I now wonder - did we meet at Arisia?

You do seem awfully familiar
I thought we met at either Arisia or Lunacon - last year. I didn't go to Arisia this year, but I may go back next year.

Still playing with the conventions to see which ones I enjoy the most, since I can only go to X number a year (and not have wishweaver change the locks on me.

Now, now there you go over exaggerating again. I haven't put the locksmith on speed dial...yet. ;-)

Oh, my sympathies on the foot injury.

I've had cysts in the balls of both feet. Found out the hard way that the skin on the soles of the feet is some of the thinnest on the body. Not to mention the notion that having anything stuck into the sole of the foot results in some of the worst pain imaginable. Try hot compresses on your foot and see if they don't help. They helped my a lot when I had the cysts.

Sounds like a good idea and I'll definitely try the hot compresses next time I do something silly like that. Knowing me, that probably will be sooner than later. Luckily, the glass wasn't in too deep and I could easily squeeze it out.

Well, easily is relative. Painfully but easily would probably best describe it. ;)
