crazy times. Too busy times. Just rushing around doing stuff too fast. I hope everyone is well.

@cjewel I just signed up for unlimited classes at my dance studio, so I expect my back/neck/hip to go out any second.

And thanks to Il Douche, the counterrtop we chose after much tsurrus and picked out our paint with turns out to cost an extra $800 in tarrifs.

Party for son on Saturday.

So feeling a bit like a chicken without a head here too! But a lot in a good way.

@willaful Ouch all around! But you will love the dance classes. I know I always feel better after I exercise.

@cjewel The publisher I'm working with demanded I cut down the number of words I'd quoted from a single romance novel from around 1400 to under 500. I wailed, gnashed my teeth, consulted with them + other people + then cut. Lost my opening sentences, an entire section + sliced lots of other places + got in at 498 without totally destroying the essay. Felt like I was killing both my and someone else's darlings. But it's OK. And the teen is coming home this weekend, so I'm very excited about that.

@cjewel I hope you are well too. Especially if the busy times are too much. I too am busy. But would rather be resting.
