Making house sketches and floorplans
Catching up with my flist on LJ
Updating the Starfish Circus website
Working on my writer website
Reading LJ Idol entries and leaving nice comments
Reminding myself that I worked 23 days without a day off, got stuck in SLC airport and then bumped to Vegas and then stayed up too late and it's OK to take a break.


What I Am Doing:

Feeling sorry for myself for being stood up by someone I don't even know.

*hugs*

I had noticed and missed your lack of a friday update and participation in LJI. Not in a "You're terrible, get on and do it right now!" kind of way, just in a "gosh, that's not like whipchick, hope everything's ok for her" kind of way. And I'm sorry to hear that it's not. :(

Working 23 days straight? Ooof! o_O You poor love.

I'm so glad to be noticed :) I'm struggling I think because I had that sabbatical time (and I'll have more starting next week) and then it was a full dive back into my real job for a month. I'm not sure how I managed LJI last year with working full time, but clearly I have misplaced that coping skill!

Thanks :)

Yeah, I've been thinking recently, how did I ever have time for LJI last time around?? But then I guess the start of every season is like that. I vaguely remember after I'd been eliminated, thinking, "My goodness, I have all this TIME! What do I do with it??" :D

Hope the shows went well for all that effort, but hope you can get back into the swing of writing easily too. :)
