Best Laid Plans Gone Agley

The nice lady who usually comes and gets my arse in gear with the cleaning has Lurgi and won't be around. Which means I have to get my arse in gear without her.

Not fun.

I have to find some nice yarn for MeMum when the local Big W doesn't stock her brand any more. And I'll be doing tech support this weekend. Perhaps with a family visit on the side.

The ginger garlic chicken soup frelling works to keep the Lurgi at bay. I'm'a be living on that today. With real cream chunks stirred in.

And those of you who follow my AO3 account may have noticed that I'm posting a WIP. It's because the actual arc is slated to end soon and I wanted to get in before the new flavour takes over.

I'm posting the next chapter now.

Some Fun Now

I finished one epic and posted it. Yay.

I started posting another epic as a series before I'm anywhere near done. Yay... ish?

And now I'm working on a one-shot that's a companion to a different one-shot I made earlier. And might even be done soon. If I can convince myself to stay away from the other firkin epics.

Of course, working on them ensures that they get finished... and I might whittle down to one epic in the fullness of time.

Here we go again

Another week of procrastination convincing myself to do that thing that scares me. I only have one thing left, and that's continuing on with the agent hunt.

I have to work through all of them before I can demand my money back.

And I don't get there if I don't try.

I have a scratchy throat, this morning. Which means that I might just be catching a Lurgi. Fun. Not looking forward to feeling horrible and drinking my own weight in ginger

Lazy Day!

I am going to write today's Instant and then vanish into doing nothing until I either finish a fic or fall asleep.

Beloved will be back on Keto today after a weekend of breaking it good and hard. And to be honest, the instant I'm done with the story, I'm back in there to check on them.

We've had a lot of carbs, yesterday. There might be some trouble from the diabetes as a result. In fact. I'll just check now.

Happy Birthday, my Beloved

For all my plans to do nothing, there's another day of something. Yes, dear readers, my Best Beloved has taken another free trip around the sun and we're celebrating with carb-loaded treats.

Because birthday.

I have also had zero time and energy to devote to the subtle art of present-getting, so. Part of today will possibly be spent out shopping.

I had to help the kids get my presents. Beloved should do the same.

But since it's a lazy day, it's already

You know that philosophy, "Do one thing a day that frightens you"?


This has been an entire week of doing one thing a day that frightens me, and I am worn the feck out.

  • Monday - Doctor's visit.
  • Tuesday - Shrink visit.
  • Wednesday - visit to the clinic to get a blood test that was foxed because I didn't read the firkin instructions.
  • Thursday - swimming in the ocean with Miss Chaos, who likes to go deep. And my aquaphobic

Big day

Assisting Chaos' field trip for what seems like is going to be a majority of the day. So my Instant may be late.

Apologies in advance, but family always comes first.

And I don't have a great deal of time to try doing it now, either. So be warned.

Mayhem is falling under the influence of Lurgi, and I need to get the kid some more sugar-free ginger ale. Fortunately, that is cheap at Aldi's. Yay.

He's not feverish enough to keep

Full week

I fucking called it. I now have Thursday on a field trip with Miss Chaos that is out of the usual routine, and Friday is the day I'm driving Mayhem around.


I knew this kind of noise was going to happen. It just goes this way.

So yeah. I'm going to be wrecked by the end of the week. And tomorrow's story is going to be L-A-T-E. Time windows are SUCH fun.

I need to figure out a dinner. I suspect

Three big days in a row

I did the quack thing yesterday. Huzzah for me.

I'm doing the shrink thing today. More attempts to sort out where the hell I am and what's going on with this whole procrastination mess and why I've been panicking inside my head for like... months.

And tomorrow... Tomorrow, oh tomorrow... I brave myself up and take that firkin blood test thing and myself out to get all the LDLs counted.

All stressful things for me. All taxing my capabilities. All draining my

Bit in the butt

Remember how I said my procrastination would bite me in the butt? It has.

My shrink appointment's tomorrow and I had not gone to the quack since my last one. And I need a mental health plan to continue seeing my shrink.

The thing I've been dragging my feet over is that I also need my blood checked for cholesterols. I have the kit, but I really don't want to find out the lengths I have to go to in order to

That's my 'meh' face. And will do as an "I'm too tired to think of anything clever".

Which is pretty much where I'm at, today.

Nothing happening. Nothing planned. A luxurious day of ficcing and snacking and napping and perhaps more Minecraft.

Story happening whenever I feel like it.

Moer Focus Issues

I can focus enough to start and finish a hurt/comfort sickfic in one morning. Yay me. But I can't focus enough to do the morning thing and Beloved already wants me to play Minecraft with them.


And I still have to do today's actual free fiction. Rather than turning my eyes permanently to a certain Texmex themed arsehole wizard.

That said, you should definitely listen to the The Adventure Zone podcast. It's amazingly funny and the characters are totally loveable

Another trainee day

Mayhem is going to be making his own game. Or at least pitching one. I can't reveal the details because people will flog any idea off the internet that sounds cool. And I want Mayhem to have some success on this.

I have a long-arse drive, there and back, twice, to deal with. And that's going to take at least one can of caffeine.

And on the second leg, I am definitely bringing my lappy so I can work on things whilst

Another Thursday

Cleaning day has moved to today. All well and good because Friday mornings are now spent ferrying Mayhem to his traineeship.

I'm slightly concerned because he has assignments from two angles now and he's sitting around and playing Factorio. He should be planning. Budgetting his time. But no. He's focussed on fun.

The more I get on his case, the less inclined he is going to be to firkin do the thing. I just have to gently remind him that all projects

Doing... okay...

There's things I need to do. Like... make a doctor's appointment for my continuing mental health. And brave up and actually read the instructions for that blood test I ordered half a year ago. And brave up to send my manuscript out to another agent or three.

I am a fucking coward.

I know I'm going to procrastinate myself into a corner some day... I just gotta make myself do these things.

And I would much rather listen to the entirety of
