Pride week. Second week on the new job. Deadlines for writing and editing.
Yeah, it’s been a week. And it’s only Wednesday!
I turned over my writing and editing stuff to all the various people who I needed to get it to early this morning, seeing as I was awake at 5 am, even though I’m pretty sure I meant to sleep a few more hours. Might as well make use of the time, am I right?
I have to work the day job for a few hours this morning (it’s amazing how quickly you can burn through an allotted 20 hours!!), before turning my attention to the rest of my Pride prep, which at this point of the week includes doing laundry, sorting out my meds for the weekend, making sure the laptop is set up for sign ins over the weekend and making some hard boiled eggs. Because Protein.
There is probably going to be some house cleaning and sorting through the piles of clothing I’ve pulled out of places to decide whether it stays or goes…and if it goes, where is it going to? Having lost 122 pounds since my heaviest weight is great, but it does make clothing occasionally problematic. I picked up two pairs of size 18W capri pants the other day…they’re already a bit baggy, and yesterday I put on a pair of size 16W that were too tight for comfort, but I could zip them up and everything. Won’t be too long before I’m in those. But that means the piles of 20Ws need to find new homes.
I should probably get on with the day job work. More deadlines, you know? And that cup of coffee I set down somewhere and is probably getting cold…I should go find that too. Happy Wednesday, Readers! And Happy Pride!
