 I have discovered a new state of being. We will call it "guh". It's the noise my brain makes every time I try and figure out what I need to do next. Hey, should we go look at rental listings and call some places? We only have a month and a half left. GUH. What should we put on for dinner tonight? GUH. Should we just give up and potato on the couch until forever? GUH. 

This is what happens to my brain when I don't prioritize or I get super-focused on things that don't actually need that much of my attention. Get easily distracted, bouncing around too much at work. My brain is never where I need it to be when I need it to be there. As it seems to have a location problem, it makes the noise. GUH. 

Also, it seems like everyone in the house is determined to not let me have any quiet moments to myself. Even this one is happening entirely by accident and I'm not sure how long it's going to last. 

As for happy-writing-type things - I am way overdue on my next chapter for Anything Like Home. It's coming, just not in the order I wanted it to at first and not exactly the way I originally planned. But I think I've got something good going. So, I have goals and stuff - next chapter goes up this weekend. Also, the plot should be picking up in a chapter or two. That's what;s kind of chewing on my brain right now is my story is in desperate need of a bad guy and I really don't want to screw that up. 

For Fireflies - I will get the next chapter up before next weekend. It's been laid aside for awhile but I think I'm ready to dive back in that one, too. Just one more step into the story for now. 

And I have most of a second chapter done for Hopeless! I'm having fun with it. 

So, yeah. GUH. I've potatoed long enough and it is time to get my ass in gear again. Go do some adulting and then come back for some writing. Re-carve out a section of my day solely for ME since I seem to be surrounded by ppl that are not getting that it is something I need in order to remain healthy.
