The book's gone -- off in Bob's hands and I can't do anything more about it. That's probably part of it too. I feel like I still have umpteen kazillion little projects left, hanging in various stages of completion. That's driving me a little crazy. I can finish a few of them off today, but others are just getting started. That's just the way my life works, and usually I find it satisfying and energizing, but today, today it just seems exhausting. Makes me want to curl up and watch tv until my eyeballs dissolve.
I also have this weird sense that most of my journal readers have wandered away in the last few months. I feel like I'm talking to ghosts. Maybe it's that I've been so focused on the book, and I haven't been very entertaining. Or maybe it's just my skewed perception, and you're really all still here? Are you here?
If you are, it'd be nice to hear a hello. Nothing complex or fancy -- just hello. If you don't like posting comments, you can always send me e-mail instead.
I did forget to note one bit of good news -- I didn't gain any weight while in California for ten days! Didn't lose any either, but I wasn't expecting that -- I was expecting what happens every time I go out of town, especially to California (or Connecticut), that I gain 3-5 pounds. And I only got to the gym twice in that time, and I didn't actually count calories much (though I tried to be a little careful about how much I was eating). So I'm quite pleased to have held steady. New goal -- lose 3-5 more pounds by WisCon, purely for the motivational effect of hearing people I haven't seen in a year ask if I've lost some weight. Although probably no one will actually notice... other people seem far less obsessed about my weight than I am. :-/ I suppose that's a good thing.
