It’s Week 28 of working from home. Week 28 of sitting at my desk, day after day, trying to keep my cat from sitting at my laptop.
I feel like there’s so much more that I should be doing, but instead of actually doing something I’m just sitting in my desk chair and spinning around in circles, ignoring everything that’s going on in the world.
I’ve managed to start two books and finish one this week:
- A Woman of No Importance (finished)
- The Irregulars (unfinished)
Both of them deal with spies in World War II, the former with a woman named Virginia Hall, who nobody really seems to know about but is pretty much single-handedly responsible for the Allied freeing of France during WWII, and the latter being the story of Roald Dahl’s military service in Washington.
I managed to get a few blog posts written this week, but in terms of personal writing, well, that’s still pretty much out the window.
I completely ignored Ni No Kuni, rage-quit Chasm, and found out that the Fall update is coming to Animal Crossing on Wednesday, and I still haven’t found the time to make a pumpkin/spooky spot anywhere on my island. It sucks that I burned myself out so quickly on Animal Crossing back in April/May, because now I really do have all these ideas but no motivation to do it.
Sprinkles finally left my island (I love her, but she was one of the original three that moved in and so her house was really lame), and I found Ketchup instead.
I’m actually keeping up with chores, somehow. Kitchen gets cleaned at least every other day, and I’ve stuck to my vacuum/laundry/misc cleaning schedule, which is better than I’ve done in a long time. I’ve actually changed my sheets on time for the first time in months. That’s exciting.
Still receiving wedding RSVPs, and preparing for my bachelorette party on Saturday. It’s going to be a low-key deal, just a few friends. We’re going to a candle pouring workshop then to a bridesmaid’s house afterwards to have a picnic dinner and hang out. It’s a far cry from what I originally wanted to do, but at least I’m able to have some fun with friends, even if it’s not the way we wanted it to be.
The cats are finally getting along. They can go whole days without hissing or growling at each other now, and they really only do that if Kiki decides she wants to start something. Kiki hasn’t done that in a while, though, because she found out that Molly is, indeed, bigger than she is and will fight her.
I’m working on the last seven paper flowers I’ll ever have to make, the seven boutonnieres for the guys (groom, groomsmen, dads). I’ve made 526 flowers total in just over six months, which is less than 100 flowers a month but seemed like something completely impossible in the beginning.
There’s still so much to do, and I don’t know if I’ll ever feel like I’ve accomplished everything. I’m just hoping that our wedding will still be able to take place in November.
And as always, keep reading.
