* Writing, writing, writing to deadlines and it has me pulling my hair out a bit. (Speaking of hair. I decided to never cut mine again in December of 2016 and it's loooooooooong now. Waist-length. Not sure what to do with all this hair. I wear it up in one of those crazy sockbuns or I wear it down my back in a braid. Is it super-flattering? Probably not, but I do love having it long.) I have a column deadline of this evening which is just not going to be possible. My cuckoo editor gave it to me Thursday night and there is no way my interview is going to contact me in time. Apparently she sent the assignment to my gmail account a week earlier. Uh, I don't have a gmail account. Sigh. I cannot, for the life of me, convince flakiness that we need consistency. I have no idea what she's going to do with that space if we can't get this thing written. I spent most of Saturday writing for a Sunday Idol deadline....and that was simultaneously difficult and a satisfying wrestle. The words are beginning to appear again. It's gratifying. I'm not sure what that piece is or how it surfaced, although I do know the character, but her story surprised me a bit. 

* Totally crushing on James Spader in his glorious 50's. Blacklist is silly but fun stuff. D can't get Crash out of his mind so he's not having quite as much fun with it as I am. 

* Had my mother up for an early dinner yesterday. She doesn't want to drive back down the mountain in the dark. She has begun taking a sleep aid and I think we're beginning to see an improvement. She did tell me that she had her very first dream in which my father has actually died and is gone. She feels that is a watershed moment. 

* Kidling1 is struggling with loneliness and I am at an absolute loss as to how to help her. This article makes so much sense and I wish that we, as a species, could begin to find a way to combat this human tragedy. https://www.foxnews.com/health/uk-doctors-to-prescribe-cooking-classes-to-combat-loneliness
