Let’s put a pin in that…

…and come back to it later.

I’m taking a break from my novel. I set a goal to have the whole thing finished top to bottom right to left by July 4th but there’s a big gaping hole in my plot and I can’t make my characters do what I want them to so I’m saying fuck it for the moment. I’m taking a break to just read for the next couple of days. And I’m NOT reading any erotica, I think I need to give my mind a little rest from that. I’m just going to submerge myself in a delightfully, dark thriller titled Heartsick that has been sitting on my night table for the past few weeks begging to be read.

I’m feeling really homesick these past couple of days. I can’t put my finger on why that is. Maybe it’s the impending holiday and lingering nostalgia for how previous Independence Days were spent. Maybe it’s because I suddenly have all this change happening in my life and I’m yearning for something familiar to latch on to. I miss knowing and liking my neighbors; I never realized how important that was before. I miss those backyard barbecues and summer nights filled with lots of beer and lots of laughs. Hopefully, when I move into my new house at the end of the month I will have some neighbors like that. Oh, did I fail to mention that I was buying a house? Yeah, I have conflicting feelings about it. I love the house, love the neighborhood and can’t wait to move in but buying this house means that the Hubs is definitely taking that contracting job overseas for a year and we’ll be separated the whole time. See how that kind of puts a damper on the whole thing? He’s leaving on the 8th of August, just one week after the closing. I cannot express how much that sucks.

Yeah, so, that’s enough of that…
