AJ spent all weekend trying to finish Queers. He says he’s close, but he’s been saying that for a couple weeks.
I’ve begun editing it and am about seventy pages into it. It’s good, but I expected it to be. 🙂
I’m also editing for the publisher and a couple freelancers. Yes, at the same time. I didn’t plan it that way. It just happened. So I worked through the weekend and now I’m fried.
On top of all that, the weather is horrible. Very low temps, extremely low wind chills. Everyone has hunkered down until the worst is over. I hope my car starts when I need it to. New battery, but that’s no guarantee in weather like this.
I’m writing this Sunday evening, and I admit I’ve quit work. I’m watching movies and drinking scotch and feeling no pain whatsoever. I checked the national weather:
It’s not going to be as bad as they originally predicted. A few days ago, they said -20 on Monday. It’s a little better in this forecast… if anyone can say “better” about -17. This is the weather forecast Monday morning; I updated the graphic.
Contrary to previous experience, the apartment has been toasty warm the last couple days. I hope it continues through the next two-three days. Before now, it’s been cold as hell. We were running heaters and huddling under electric blankets and throws. Showering and such was a real pain.
Have a good week, everyone. A lot of us are in survival mode, just trying to get through it. If you are enjoying warm temps, I envy you! By the end of the year, I hope to have joined your numbers. 🙂
