Sometimes Plumbing Happens.

I know, I know, I know - I am SO far behind on my blogging, it's ridiculous.

I have plumbing issues right now. Aside from illness, war, and death, plumbing is just one of those facts of life that takes precedence over everything.

I won't go into gory detail, but let's just say it hasn't been the greatest month for anything else. I just had to cancel some bookstore appearances in Florida that I was really looking forward to and I'm WAY behind on writing.

Plus, you know, open pipes mean open pockets. The more water flowing, the more money -- well, you get it.

Sigh.

This grownup thing is great, but once in a while it's not quite all it's cracked up to be.

Hope everyone else is well!

I'm going to university in the fall.

My dad discussed getting me a car.

I said no because if something goes wrong, I don't want to have to deal with it. I'll take public transport, thank you very much.

I'm quite happy not doing the grownup thing yet.

Hope the plumbing issues are fixed soon!

It's amazing how a mindset can change in 20 days...! (re: your last two posts)

LOL, Scott. I had plumbing AND flu this week, I think I'm allowed a little temporary mindset shift!

But it actually turned out to be a VERY good week after all. Even money coming in. So I'll post about that next.
