No news... good news.  A family tradition.

I was kind of shocked that I haven't posted here in over a week, but it's been quiet. I've been quiet.

There are demons - stupid shit like facing a backlog of tax filings. Giving in to the idea that I have to find and pay for an attorney for "elder law" issues. 

Facing and dealing with changes to the book - an updated edition, likely putting all three books in one volume.

Another prime avoidance tactic for pushing ahead with book four - rounding up all the rabid rabbits I've already written and seeing what sticks.

I find endless ways to avoid all of these things now that I'm not tied to a schedule, none of them adding up to much. I'm still looking for a nap after lunch-ish which wouldn't be so bad if I didn't go to bed by 8 and waste the evening watching TV.  All told, put it down to mid-winter doldrums. We haven't suffered any weather extremes here in Georgia, so I'll shut up about that before I jinx the situation.

Ah, I so know the avoidance and the inability to avoid and things that should get done...but, just wanting to stand in the sun and do what I want! Good luck pushing through.

I've been retired for ten years (wow) ... and the joy of it was not being tied to a schedule, but lately I have been trying to follow one because so much was not getting done ... if only I had a way to turn off the damn Instagram reels (I know, I could delete the app, but I know I'd re-install it)
