good and bad!

Ted made splendid steaks and baked potatoes for dinner, for about mmm a third? of the cost that the same meal would’ve cost at Lone Star. Let’s hear it for eating at home. :)

Deirdre’s FBR paperwork got here yesterday, in an envelope which FedEx had managed to completely drench. Fortunately it was a cardboard envelope, or instead of being merely Very Damp the paperwork inside it would’ve been destroyed. I’m lookin’ at the penmanship on the certificate and I’m pretty sure that’s the sort of ink that would run all over the place if it got wet. Only the edges were wet, though, so. Stupid FedEx. :P But! The paperwork is here. Now I have to … figure out what we do as the next step for getting passports.

Um, let’s see. *looks around* Ted and I went *out* last night! Gasp! We went to see a performance by Battlefield Band, a Scottish traditonal folk band. That was lots of fun, even if it was a Thursday night crowd and kind of dull. I’m going to have to get some of their CDs, and now I want to dig out all my Irish music and listen to it for days on end. :)

I did *not* get up and write this morning. I have been so *astoundingly* lame the last week, I can’t even believe it. I’m still ahead on my YTD wordcount, but I’m losing ground fast and … well. I just need to get back to the grindstone. I *knew* this was going to be the hard part of the year, it always is. It’s starting to get light out, I don’t want to be at a keyboard, I just wanna go play and goof around and stuff. Laaaaaaame Kit. But I’ve run out of buffer; today’s chapters for Silkie are the last ones I’ve got done, so whether I want to or not I need to sit my butt down and do a bunch of rewriting this weekend.

And it’s not even that I don’t want to! It’s just that I’m being lame! Lame lame lame!

Got in another half mile walk last night, between going to and from the theatre. I said tangently. I’m v. close to being back to 190, and hell, I haven’t even really been trying. The whole eat less, exercise more thing, like, *works*.

Thirsty. Need water. And then to work.
