Happy New Year, y’all.

It’s 2021 and I’m trying to be organized. I’m not failing at it.


We’re also starting what we refer to as “Italian New Year” in our household. That’s basically a purge of items in the house that we no longer want/need. We’ve gone through most of the kitchen and it’s surprise how many water bottles one family can connect. we’ve narrowed that down to the ones we actually want. Similarly, travel mugs. We have Disney mugs which we are more than happy to use, so we don’t need random mug three from some home-show or other convention type thing we went to.

I’m starting to list again on eBay. I’ve been just coasting for a few weeks, so slow sales are all on me. I got a bag worth listed yesterday, and three items today. I’m trying very hard to just pick up and item and list it. I’m trying to get out of the “not in the mood” rut and just do it anyway. I’m only forcing myself to do half an hour a day, so it shouldn’t kill me. It’s better than just having boxes and boxes of stuff laying around.

I did win three items at the auction, though I didn’t end up going in person to bid. It was just… too cold and the possibility that folks would not wear masks or physically distance was a concern as well. I sort of miss the fact that I didn’t get any of the free food, but in exchange I got to sleep for two more hours. And I do love my sleep.

I have had the dubious pleasure of running out of some of my meds. It’s been the “time between” insurance cards and doctors. I’ve got an appointment for next week. But I’m hopeful that the doctor will do me the kindness of calling in the meds on Monday as opposed to waiting until the appointment. That being said — it’s going to be interesting. It means that my blood sugars are going to be high for a few days and I’ll need my inhaler more often until I get them back.

I just lost 2K words on one of my books.

No, I haven’t been able to find the temp file.

Yes, I did save while I was writing. I’m compulsive.

The program shut down incorrectly and reverted back to an old file.

I am sad. And now I have to rewrite the damned scene which is more annoying. At least I remember the antagonist’s first name now. And it’s not MS Word as much as I wish that were the case. I’m sensing I might need to do some sort of Crack!Fic about that.

So, New Year, New Goals. Let’s see how we do yeah?

  • Goal: Finish 2 books & 12 short stories
  • Goal: Keep a journal, even if it’s only one line per day
  • Goal: Take a photo every day and make myself a book at the end of the year.
  • Goal: Complete MilWordy.
  • Goal: Blog every day.
