Misc.September 26, 2007
I don't have that much to say. I've been working too much, I think. I find I can work on no knitting but socks. I swear, I have a sweater that's got to be three-quarters finished, Lala's yearly sweater, and I can't look at it. It's too big. Too much work.
The house is a mess. And I don't care that much. I care in an exhausted, can't-be-bothered kind of way. There's this one ledge that I've been noticing lately -- it has a layer of fine dirt on it (the window next to it is always open), and it's something that I would normally clean off during the weekly house-clean, but I haven't had time in WEEKS. We had people over about a month ago, and the house hasn't really been cleaned since then, other than a sweeping or three and one toilet-scrub. I just can't stop thinking about that ledge, but not enough to clean it.
Struggling to do my writing. I tried to write in spare pockets of time last week, and got a thousand words which all felt like they had been ripped from under my nails. Then I wrote for an hour on Monday, my day off, and got more and better words in that hour than I had the whole week prior.
Extended-family drama is occurring around us, sad drama that is exhausting, especially for Lala. There's not much we can do but watch and wait and hope, but that's hard.
However, the animals are fine, and Lala and I are fine, and last night Digit was curled on my chest, purring, and I realized that it's all okay, it's all going to be okay, someway, somehow, and it's all right just to be tired, to rest.
The Whining is Followed by A Fun Thing Or Two
Lala's band The Whoreshoes is playing Hardly Strictly Bluegrass! DUDE! If you know about this yearly event, you know it's so exciting -- it's HUGE and it's FREE in Golden Gate Park. This year, the Whoreshoes will be playing with the likes of Gillian Welch, John Prine, Robert Earl Keen, Michelle Shocked, Steve Earle, and Emmylou Harris. You should come! Obviously, I'll be knitting at the gals' Saturday gig, and I'll be wandering the rest of the time -- knitters represent!
Also, they'll be on an episode of the upcoming reality show, Girl Meets Cowboy, premiering October 14th on the WE network. Not sure which episode, but it should be fun to see 'em play on national TeeVee!
Oh, and I'm working the Good Vibes (link not safe for work -- unless you're Lala and you work there) booth for the Folsom Street Fair this Sunday, 10-2 - come say hi!
There. I am in a better mood already.
