…if the alternative is that you get nothing otherwise.
So, I’ve had a story sitting half finished in my drafts for the last four days, and because it was finished, I didn’t publish it. Then, tonight, I scrapped it and started over, and got about half done before I ran out of steam. Rather than let it sit in my drafts until tomorrow or the next day, I decided to let it go and publish.
Today, we signed a paper saying our landlord can show our apartment to prospective renters. The hope is that someone can move in to our apartment right after we move into our house, that way we don’t have to keep paying rent. What this means practically, right now, is that our apartment needs to be clean and showable, which it’s not at this time, so after I got home a little after 5 p.m., we started cleaning and I felt like I finally sat down in not-cleaning-mode at around 7:30.
My writing lasted until about 8 or 8:15, when the aforementioned steam ran out. Still, I’ve had a lot of visitors to the site today, so I thought you at least deserved something. You deserve more and better, really, but I’ll give what I have and hope that is sufficient for now.
I returned to work today after a week’s semi-vacation (most of it was spent on house-buying related work), and it was everything I thought it would be. Take that as you will.
Michelle, I’m going to write you a response tomorrow. For now, though, I think we’re going to finish our episode of The Office.
