July Elevenses

Been busy. Tuesdays and Wednesdays, I spend with my mother while the men are out in the field. She’s not feeling well so we laid low, for the most part. Tuesday was my niece’s 12th birthday and we did go out to dinner with them and back to their place for gifts. That was nice. My sister is mellowing out and beginning to want “adult” time rather than hovering over the girls and demand that we all pay them the same attention. No conversations wherein people:  die, fuck, birth, despair, imbibe, smoke, shoot up, contemplate God or the Goddess, talk politics, or horror movies, mention murder or suicide or car crashes, and doubly so for all animal life but especially dogs, cats and elephants. All that seems to be fading a bit. The person she has silenced the most with these bizarre restrictions is her husband who happens to be a fireman/medic in a huge city.

Mothers.

Still editing and rewriting. Also, I have an article on the docket. Trying to convince small-town editor that the style guide is about implementing AP Style not making random decisions about style such as URLS and forward slashes and dashes and parenthetical asides based on what she thinks “looks good.”

Bad things are happening with the new building. Mainly and stripped of all pretense – we hate it. The reasons are myriad and varied and actually deal with deep-seated marital issues, too, so I don’t have the energy to outline all that here. Suffice it to say, unhappy. We told S the contractor to pack up for a while so we can lick our (financial) wounds and make some decisions about what we can do to fix the problem. Ugh.

Working like I’m getting paid, on the Persephone/Hades pieces. I have 20,000 words of those two and am debating collating or using as inspiration. Beginning to outline my story. I wrote an opening chapter which amused me and entertained me.

I have TV and book recs that need more fandom love. Hopefully I can get to those before the weekend is over. Now I have to return to the daily grind.
