Yesterday was a challenge, and I wasn’t sure I was entirely up to it. Managed to handle all three of my classes, wind up the fourth, and stay on top of that. It was a challenge and having a migraine didn’t help, but it’s done.

Nothing on Biblio Paradise today — I’m prepping for Midnight Enchantments.

The people came to do the Energy Assessment on the house, which took longer than I hoped. It was fascinating, but also a case of running around getting all the storm windows down so they could do the “blow test” — sticking a pressure fan in the door and simulating storm conditions to find leaks — running around getting some of the storm windows back up because we still want fresh air. Testing the furnace, the oven, the hot water heater, the dryer, the vents. Exploring the attic — I didn’t know we had one! It’s not usable, but still. Keeping Tessa from dashing out. The twins hid.

Tessa learned how to open the pocket door in the upstairs bathroom. She wiggled and wiggled and wiggled it until there was an opening into which she could slide her paw. Then she put weight behind it and got the door open enough to escape.

They arrived at 11 and left around 2:30 and I was wrecked. And then had to go back to classes!

When I finally got to bed, well after 11 PM, I thought of something else in regard to a student scene, and went back online.

I woke up feeling like crap and unrested, but it’s another busy day. I do have to go grocery shopping at some point, but I should have time to catch up properly on everything and maybe even rest a bit. I have to finish the prep for the class that starts tomorrow.

It’s a bit of a busy month. It will stretch me in new ways, I am sure, and teach me a little about more sane scheduling in the future, I hope! 😉

Good morning’s work on the Harpy book, which makes up for a lot. My first chapter with one of the antagonists. He’s more interesting than I expected, which is a good thing.

  1. I know you’re having fun with all the classes and everything, and I know you need to pay the bills, etc. But I hope you don’t burn yourself out.

    Clever Tessa. 😀

  2. Tessa sounds like a very smart girl! I hope you find the time to rest today and that your headache leaves.

  3. I think I love Tessa. 🙂

    How’s the migraine today? Gone, I hope.

  4. I haven’t kept up with your blog for about a month and trust me, it won’t happen again.

    I’ve been so wrapped up in my day job and the overwhelming workload, I lost sight of what my goals are. But I know what they’re not – climbing this freakin’ corporate ladder and kissing countless asses on the way.

    Thank you for the renewed perspective and the swift kick in the ass.
