1. I've started doing some planning/writing for my Autoimmune Memoir, and I realized that I have the hardest time writing in past tense now because I write all my fanfic in present tense. Would it be weird to read a memoir in present tense? Should I force the past tense until it becomes comfortable again? What do y'all think?
2. There's a new comm, bujo
, that some of you may be interested in. It's about bullet journaling which I have pretty much decided is not for me, but I enjoy reading about all things journal/planner related.
I wish there was an active comm for all different kinds of journaling, planners, to-do list lovers, etc. I feel like the answer is to make a new one (but lordy do I not want to mod anything right now; of course, it could just be largely unmoderated) or to try to revive paperjournals
. What do y'all think? Which seems more likely to succeed? Any interest in an all-encompassing journal/planner comm?
3. We are all so sick. Waaaaaah. Josh was out the first two days of this week. He frequently and randomly has bouts of vomiting/diarrhea that we can't explain. For the longest time, I really didn't think much of it and assumed they were anxiety related. Now, though, I worry that some underlying condition is causing these episodes, so he's started the process of figuring out a diagnosis. Ultrasound and X-Rays tomorrow!
Emma's cold is lingering.
Fiona has . . . something. Doc thinks it's bacterial but not quite sure. So she's on antibiotics. If she doesn't improve by the morning, I'll take her back.
This is my greatest shame as a mom, but situations where the kids have to miss school always bring out the selfish beast in me. I had so much work I wanted to do today, alack.
Of course, I am sick now, too. I almost never get colds, so when I do, they feel pretty debilitating. Bleck. Which means I can stop whining about missing work today because I feel so shitty, I probably wouldn't have gotten as much done as I want anyway. LOL
