Mid-March Update

CalendarObliqueIt might tip my hand as to what kind of month it has been that the last entry to precede this mid-month update was my end-of-last-month update. So, um… yeah, I’ve been swamped. Literally, I suppose.

So, remember when I said that hopefully March would be wet? Well, it has been, just not in the good way. Since the beginning of the month, my septic system has had three separate failures, each requiring a different guy to come out to fix it. The final fix is hopefully coming tomorrow, and that will be some work on the drainage field. It will be the most expensive, but it’s likely that the whole thing will come to about $2000. I do believe I have earned the right to say… shit!

Anyway, all of that came before, in between, during, and after two trips I made since the beginning of the month. The first was to a conference, and the second was to pay a surprise visit to my mother. She turned 80 this past week, and my brother and I went out Phoenix to surprise her. She was very pleased, but I must say, there was a moment when I thought we were going to have to pick her up off the floor. We might do it again someday, but not without a defibrillator handy.

As for my writing numbers… well, again shit. Not only am I behind on my writing numbers, but I’m behind on getting my numbers together that I don’t even know how far behind I am on my writing numbers. Anyway, I’m definitely in catch-up mode.

That’s it for now. I’ll say more when I’m no longer knee deep in… well, just be patient.
