I'm back home, trying to catch up on things and get ready for school. This morning, Gary looked very sad and said, "My favorite blogger hasn't posted lately," so I thought I should rectify that . . . not, mind you, that I have a tremendous amount to say.
The good news:
We're going to Kauai over spring break! Our friend Katharine got a timeshare from the waitlist.
My friend and former student Inez is going to be at WisCon this year, and she's bringing some yarn for me!
My trip home was uneventful, and everything fit into my luggage fine, and because the TSA folks once again graciously ignored my knitting supplies, I got a bunch done on my mother-in-law's shawl.
The bad news:
Airfare to Kauai is terrifyingly expensive: the cheapest I could find when I did a quick Expedia search last night was $1080 roundtrip from Reno. Cough, cough, choke. We're still going, but I'd rather not spend that much. Does anyone have a lead on less expensive airfare?
I'm still not back at work on the fourth novel.
Because I'm still not back at work on the fourth novel, my psychiatrist has bumped up my meds again, on the theory that either a) the old, low dose wasn't actually doing anything, and a higher dose should give me more motivation, or b) the old, low dose was suppressing my creativity, and a higher dose will make things even worse -- does not blogging count? -- in which case we'll switch me to something else. Ho hum. This actually happened before I left for Philly, but I was too bummed to post about it.
In any case, I now have yet another reason (as if I needed more) to get back to work on the fourth novel: so my very nice shrink will stop fussing with my brain chemistry.
