I was doing so well there for a second too. Oh well. It's the holiday season and I haven't been doing anything. Mostly annoyed by the "guest" that's been in the house since January 2. She lost her house so the plan was that she stay for a few weeks until she found another place, it's December. She's still here. Her presence annoys me because she's the type of person who has to talk all day every day and I'm the type of person who likes to sit mostly in silence and talk to no one except maybe a few days out of the month when I start to feel lonely for human contact.
If she's not talking, she's making noise. I swear, the other day I was ready for murder. She was talking to Ma the previous morning, then most of the evening, and then woke me up the next morning. I hadn't been sleeping well as it was, possibly because of the energy of the meteor shower, and waking up to the sound of her obnoxious voice set me up to be angry all day. I was fine for awhile thinking she had talked out all she needed to until she came in around noonish to talk some more. That set me off and I had to leave the house. Luckily, I have a really great friend who understands that sometimes we experience pure rage. I hung out with her that afternoon and played with her super fluffy cats that I'm allergic too. I don't remember ever feeling that much rage. That's a problem. Perhaps I should meditate.
Being annoyed has messed with my creativity, but I see it as a lesson in self control. The fact that I haven't ripped out her vocal chords yet prove I have some sort of control, but now I need to learn how to block it out. She's very loud and hard to ignore, so I'm getting some noise cancelling headphones in a few days hoping that'll help block out the nuisance and increase my desire to write more. Of course, this could all just be me too lazy to write anything and wanting to pass the blame on to someone else.
Anyway, like I said, it's the holiday season. I missed out on Hanukkah, but I'm thinking I'm going to offer up Bridge of Destiny e-book for free again from Yule to Christmas Eve. I have a few more free days available. I'll let you know when I decide the last few dates I have for that this year.
