Went to my parents Sunday. Done a few other things since. Tomorrow, Todd has a doctors appointment. Have to get something minor fixed on the car...just seems like I always have something to do. I'm not complaining mind you, better busy than bored, but I still have to wonder why I'm so busy yet seem to have so little to show for it.
Todd's Christmas gift is coming along nicely, but it is going to be a lot longer than I thought. I came up with a shorter fic idea that I'm also working on, but I don't think it's what he wants, but that one I'm sure I can finish before Christmas, worst come to worst. It's not like Todd will hold me to "Must be done in time for Christmas," he's not a dick and as long as I'm steadily writing it, he'll be patient.
I have managed to get my nephew's gifts, both Christmas and Birthday (Both within a few days of each other). One down... 4 more to go. I'm working those miracles with the budget so we can afford this. I sorta feel bad though, that we can't do more for my brother and my sister in law. They were flooded twice and while insurance is covering a good portion of it, they aren't made of money, so even what insurance won't cover is going to be a strain for them. They lost their furnace and their water heater. They also had to rent a dumpster to get rid of stuff and they've had to have a professional company come out and clean up the basement and their backyard. (Apparently, it's illegal to have river mud in your yard or something... I'm not sure, but I know the town they live in told them they had to have the mud cleaned out of the yard and too quickly for them to do it themselves.) I was really hoping that we'd be able to give them more than we usually do, and get them a Sears gift certificate. Sears is doing the water heater and the furnace and they have worked out a payment plan with them. I was hoping we'd be able to give them a gift certificate that would cover a month payment.
So, life is under control. We have a follow up visit with the doctor for Todd tomorrow. Todd is saying I can stay home if I want...(he stays home for my appointments now) but I'll most likely go with him.
I really have to start walking again. I'm missing it.
I also really have to get some sleep. For some reason, I've been having a bitch of a time falling asleep, usually tossing and turning until 3:00 in the morning. Then, promptly at 7:00 I wake up or the cats wake me up. But, I think I'm tired enough now to crash for real.
If I can just stay away from the story I'm writing. I start working on that and It'll be 12:00 before I even think about laying down.
So, anyone read any good books lately?
