Sunny and pleasant

Really good day working in the storage unit yesterday. I moved about 40 boxes of dishes and over 100 boxes of books — and still can’t find the two books I really need! Today, I just have to move out the annoying little stuff in odd shapes and figure out how to stash it, and the units are consolidated. Even better, there’s room to maneuver in the big unit. Since I plan to load a bunch of stuff in from the apartment to get some breathing space, that’s a good thing.

In the afternoon, we went over to Target and bought bins — 4 extra large and two little — all I could fit into the back of the car, so I can start packing stuff up in the apartment this weekend that I want to haul to storage.

Worked on client projects in the afternoon, too. I’m going to send off a couple late this afternoon, and get an extension on the project for Confidential Job #1 until tomorrow.

Another lousy writing session this morning. It’s just going to be tough until it’s not. And I just have to keep at it.

I think I have to take Violet to the vet I think she’s got a respiratory infection now — it’s as though she’s trying to sneeze, but it doesn’t come out. I’ll watch her for another day — maybe it’s the dust I’m bringing back from working in the unit and moving all that stuff up from the city, where it sat for years — I know I’m coughing and sneezing and my eyes are itchy. And, of course, the never-ending construction in the building that they’re trying to make the tenants pay for, even though ti’s for fantasy future tenants and doesn’t benefit us. It’ll be a challenge to give her medication. Elsa considers medication “treats”; Violet is convinced I’m trying to murder her. I don’t know why she’s so upset about it; it’s not like anything bad ever happened in her little kitty life since I got her, and she was only 4 weeks old when I got her and her sister; I hand-raised them. But she firmly believes medicine is awful and fights like crazy. Fortunately, this will be only the second time in her nine years she’s ever needed any. Poor Violet!

Back to finish the storage unit and then work on client projects. Got a few bills to pay, too. I’m hoping I can settle into a more productive writing routine next week.

Sorry I don’t have more of interest to talk about, especially on the writing front! Hopefully, that will change soon!

  1. See, you’re like me – your books outnumber your other stuff. 🙂 I’d hate to move at this point. It would take me weeks to box and move the books alone. They’re like children – how do you part with any of them?

    I hope Violet’s okay. I’d suspect the dust at first, too. They’re just as sensitive as we are sometimes.

  2. I hope Violet is ok.

  3. Just the thought of temporarily packing up my books to paint makes me cringe. I hope you find the two books you’re looking for soon. It sounds as though you are accomplishing a lot with consolidating your storage areas. Sending good thoughts for Violet!
