I have moved. Moving sucks. My killer anxiety got activated and I lost my recently-won ability to sleep a reasonable amount each night. I’m waking up between 4 and 5 every morning, and if I go to bed earlier, I wake up even earlier… I’m in a constant state of extreme sleep deprivation.
But I’m unpacked, and my family is lovely, and my room is great — I have a SE/SW facing corner window and my bed is in that corner, so I can lie in a puddle of sunshine and rest. And the air here is much much cleaner than in San Diego. My strange incurable puffy-eye condition cleared up immediately. I think the air pollution from living on a busy street must have affected my eyes.
I’ve started recording again! (There is a 2-year-old, but no constant stream of military aircraft and garbage trucks so it’s good trade, noise-wise) Betsy-Tacy and Tib is only 2 chapters away from completion and I’ve added the finished chapters to my podcast feed already. I’ll post the whole book here when it’s done but if you’re impatient you can find it here:
Thanks for all the nice comments and emails! I owe email to everybody….
