Life has been truly overwhelming lately, but such is life at this stage I guess. It has been good, though. I just have to continue on working on dealing with it all better. I thought I'd come a long way on this, but then this house thing got added to the mix. It's pretty much on my mind 24/7.
Next week is my Vegas trip with my girls Kim (aka L.P.-Life Partner) and Le Ann. I've been so busy, stressed that I haven't really given it too much thought, because spending money right now on anything other than the house is just a bit much. But at the same time, it's probably like the best thing I could do. I don't know many people with better souls than these two. They are so easy to talk to-about anything. So, I know it will be good, and even though the timing seems poor, it's probably happening now for a reason.
'Tis the season for fantasy football. Er, I mean football. I may have stretched myself a little this season with everything else going on. I've got two family leagues (on mine and Brian's side), one with a friend that I was really thrilled for thinking of me, and our Girls, Girls, Girls league. Yes, your truly, Big TD's and No Bush, probably didn't have the best draft (at least if you trust those fuckers at Yahoo and their draft grade), but damn if I don't love it. I'll also do the pick 'em league for my cousin Holley and one at work. For someone whose cup runneth over...probably not the smartest thing, but I guess we make time for the things we love. And I do love it.
The book is coming along well. I was emailing with my editor about it today, and she makes me feel so much better about everything. She recently spent a weekend with her best friend. She refers to her best friend as her "Molly." Molly is the name of the best friend in my book. I love this for so many reasons. I love that it really touches her that way, and I love that my junior high friend can be honored in that way. It was her birthday yesterday, so I let her know that Lesley uses her name as a synonym for best friend. I just think that's way cool.
I could write all night tonight. Really. I could. But I should get to all of those football commitments and actual adult like responsibilities. I didn't sign up for that shit.
I'll leave you with "Bad Influence" by Pink. I always tell Amy that she's my bad influence, but there's no bad influence there. We just accept each others dares and challenges. Anyway, we heard this song while we were in Chicago, and at least once a day it has gone through my head. This is one of my favorite Pink songs, which says a lot. It was (I haven't added music to my new phone yet) also my friend Erin's aka Angelina's ring tone ever since it came out. I really do need to add music again...
Have a great night.
