08 Feb just hang out
Things are a little upside down over here.
I’m burning the candle at both ends. Work deadlines. Writers conference deadlines. A steady stream of houseguests (whom I adore…I don’t stress about any of them, but I do worry about making sure they’re welcomed with clean sheets and non-filthy toilets. And I’d prefer they NOT have to navigate around 5-foot-tall piles of laundry. But there’s no guarantee.) And sorting through 2010 paperwork for tax preparation. Tax time is no fun for anyone, but it’s especially no fun when you’re self-employed. And when you lived in two states in 2010 and bought and sold a house. I hate it. Hate. Hate. Hate. HATE it. I’d rather clean toilets.
The good news is that the deadlines are slowing down very soon, and the tax paperwork will be out of my hands, and I can get back to focusing more energy on the blog and some home improvement projects I’ve wanted to tackle. We picked out a paint color for the kitchen. Yay!
And somehow, last night, in the midst of Superbowl festivity, Kris and I signed up to compete in a triathlon relay in a few months. In Mexico! I’ll be running. Which is appropriate, don’t you think? I’m always running. (Kris is biking, of course.)
So, yeah. Busy times. Just hang out a while. Pull up a chair. Grab some popcorn. 2011 is just getting started.
