Yes, it’s been an OMG month. One thing after another, finally culminating in 14 hours without power thanks to the bomb cyclone that grazed the area. Currently, I have the Nutcracker playing and I’m going to decorate my office this afternoon for Yule because seriously, I NEED SPARKLIES and not just orange ones. And those who don’t like decorating early can stay out of my house. *grins* Not their circus, not their monkeys.
Some of what went down this month I can’t really talk about because it involves other people in my life (not my immediate family), but there have been serious medical dramas going on, then my assistant and her family ended up being displaced by a fire in the apartment above them and they have had to find a new home and scramble to sort out what’s left from the smoke and water damage, and as a result, because I need her to handle the contests, etc., those all went on hold and my Blogtober became a bombtober. Due to the disruptions and worry, I got behind and then this past weekend we got hit by the edge of that big bomb cyclone and boom–power was out for fourteen hours. Luckily though it was chilly, it wasn’t icy cold.
So yeah, all those combined with the general stresses of chronic illness has left this October my least favorite October in years. (Thank you Mercury retrograde and all the accompanying other astrological dumpster fires there was going on, well…I’m looking forward to November.
On the good side of things, HARVEST WEB released and people are seeming to love it. And I’m having fun planning out next year’s writing schedule. Sam and I are still madly in love. Caly, Apple, and Brighid are settling in to the new normal without Morgan–though we’ll be looking for a new kitty near my birthday, I think. And I found a new nail artist who is very cautious and good about Covid protocol, so I can start having my nails done again–a joy that I’ve missed so much.
I guess that’s it until next time. Thanks for listening to me rant! I try not to often but…some months, you just have to let it out.
