I guess I should update or something, hm?

I don't have anything spectacularly exciting to report, but I figured I should make an entry for the benefit of those who like to know what I'm up to.

The walls, after a second coat, are primed enough to lay paint down on. I'm going to start with the closets, so I can make all my mistakes and no one will notice. I'd hoped to be moved in by the end of the month--as it is, the move in date has been pushed off to "sometime after DragonCon."

I'm putting some stick-on sheets to frost the glass panels in the bathroom door. After a few false starts, I think I've got the hang of it. Now I just need to finish that up and I can take the newspaper off of the door.

Work is enough to keep me occupied, but I really need to cut down on the internetting between things, even if the drama on dd.com is popcorn-munchingly spectacular right now.

Today I took pleasure in doing a little bit of actual story-type writing on my lunch hour. I hope I can cultivate a regular habit of it.

Today I learned that even more condos are sprouting up along Peachtree (which isn't really a surprise.)

Sounds like an ... interesting landlord. I'd be vigilant for signs that he thinks he's a Sith or a Dalek or something. On the other hand, if he'd said "some time after the DriveInVasion," I would run far, far away.

Um ... I don't grok.

I don't have a landlord right now--I have very tolerant parents. (Long story.) Therefore, I'm setting my own move-in date. I want the walls to be painted before I move in furniture and belongings, but I'm only able to work on them for about two hours at a time each evening, so it's going a bit slowly.

Have fun at DragonCon. My hub is going. He got the hook up from some friend of his to work a booth a few hours for a free place to crash, free food and getting in the Con. He usually gets to go some way or another.
I am jealous, not of going to Con but of his going anywhere and being all alone and having fun. I know one day my kids will be out of the house but by then I will be too to do anything. LOL.
At this point I would love to go to the Con just to sit and watch the freaks go by.

Please do share the durannie drahma. I haven't had a good dose of that in ages, yet I can't bring myself to actually go to the site.
