dear god, it’s november

This year has just…gone. Poof. Fweh. Zoom. I honestly don’t feel like I’ve ever fully recovered from moving. Possibly because the last dozen or whatever boxes still aren’t dealt with. I just need another bookshelf, at this point, and I don’t have one. #sigh Anyway.

I have so many things to do. My daily Thinks To Do List looks like this, every day all month:

– write 2k on REDEEMER (ie, nanowrimo)
revise (or proof) 50 pages on one of 3 different projects 50 pages : proofed
clean a room (thanksgiving is coming) kitchen : sparkling

…somehow that doesn’t look as horrible as it seems, but revising something and writing something else at the same time is not in my natural skill set…

Anyway, yeah, so I’m basically Nanowrimoing, although I don’t think I’ll use the site this year. I’m having a hard enough time keeping up on blogging, nevermind adding another place to go daily. @.@

Speaking of still-packed boxes, Ted found my coloring books! I’m going to try to spend half an hour every evening coloring, too, because they say it’s practically like meditation and that’d be good for me. @.@ And…yeah. Just a lot is happening.

Oh, God, I wangsted about it on FB and Twitter but I haven’t posted here. My laptop has started making Alarming Clunking Noises, and told me to back everything up and contact the manufacturer to see if I needed to repair or to replace the hard drive. I got the music and my downloads folder and my bookmarks backed up, and I work out of Dropbox anyway, so if it suddenly totally just dies I’ll probably be okay, but I’d really rather not need to buy a new laptop, uh, well, at all. I’d *like* to get a ridiculously large all-in-one screen for my desktop and a tablet-with-keyboard for remote working, but we’re talking several thousand euro worth of tech lust there, which is profoundly impractical. Failing that, until the unlikely time I can afford a big all-in-one, a higher-end tabtop that has enough USB ports to plug my keyboard etc in to and is still light enough for me to carry around practically…is also too expensive. :) So let’s hope the laptop clunks along a while longer. :}

Anyway, I started this blog post like 11 hours ago and I’ve proofed my pages and cleaned a room, so now I’m going to actually, IDK, post it, and go try to get my NNWM words in.
