Super fun week, in that I walked into my office last Friday to find a new copier that looks like it might transform into a robot at any second and my computer indescribably "updated". So the week has been spent trying frantically to remember all my passwords, discovering that a whole lot of templates I've been blithely using for years are now gone, and adjusting to the new way of things.

I don't like change...

Lessee, other news. The audiobook of Ordination is available for preorder on Amazon ( Here! ), and Yeats and I have listened to bits and pieces of it and are delighted. Mr. Kramer will also be attending the book release party in two weeks, and is apparently ready and willing to read books 2 and 3 as well. Stillbright is shipping, Yeats is obsessively checking Goodreads for new reviews, and has finally heaved himself over a hump in the road of the book he's currently writing. I...am tired. Very tired. Part of it is actual tiredness, I have not been sleeping well and Hector likes to violently cuddle me awake at 3:00am to prove his love. Part of it is that I am fretting about the books, and fretting about the house, and fretting about politics, and my brain will not sit down and shut up. And when I do fall asleep, I have anxiety dreams--either the basic ones of "Spiders in my hair!" or "I forgot to do something important!", or more currently-apropos ones like "I am a Handmaid NO NO NO".

House update! Okay a roofing guy looked at the house and confirmed that the roof will need about $4K worth of repairs sooner rather than later. This is actually less than we were led to believe might be needed, but still not great. So our agent is putting forth an offer that the owners pay for repairs to the roof and the front/back porches. If they balk, she will "concede" that they could just pay for the roof instead. As the current owners have already moved out-of-state and are super-ready to sell, we think they'll agree to this. We've got homeowner's insurance in place and ready to kick in, a closing attorney at the ready, some tentative plans of where to put furniture...so we can haz house?

I can leave early once I get these last couple of tasks done! Tomorrow we have to go down to VA for Rob's First Communion (if their priest tries to choke me with incense, we will Have Words), but tonight is for pizza, booze, and me watching the new Anne of Green Gables series on Netflix.
