My god am I glad the last two months are over. Major projects behind or plunging into crisis mode at work (again, or still, depending on your point of view), a visit to my mom (which was lovely but included much discussion of legal/estate stuff, which always depresses me), a conference whereat not only was I on the Board of Directors but I had to teach a brand new workshop I'd never taught before, my godson graduating high school (there is NO WAY he is that old, it's impossible), taking on co-mod responsibilities for my online writing group, an overflow of editing work for my freelance clients, Marvin the laptop died and I had to migrate my entire life onto Marvin II...arrgghh. I'm sure there were other things but I must have blocked them out in a vain attempt at mental self-defense. They'll probably surface later and cause me to leap up screaming at some awkward moment. In the middle of dinner, say, or while at the theatre.
Somewhere along the line, though, I did manage to watch the last season of Mad Men
-- what a wild ride that was! -- and last night I finally got caught up on Wolf Hall
. I want to have Mark Rylance's babies.
Now all I have left to do is finish my sshg_promptfest
fic which is due in nine days, get ready for my trip west for nursedarry
's dad's 100th birthday (!!), and write a paper for a conference in August. It'll be like shooting fish in a barrel.
And of course I have to catch up on what's new with all of YOU, my flist. So, what's the single most interesting thing that's happened to each of you in the past two months, since I abandoned you all in the middle of March? Tell, tell!
