Hello there!
Yeah. It's been that busy. Really.
Proposal after proposal and then client meeting in D.C.

More under the cut )

Well. Not quite yet.
Have to get through this next proposal then do a couple of little short ones.
My brain feels like fricassee.

I'm staying in bed, working on the laptop from bed and this weekend there will be more bed and then housecleaning.

I need to recover.

And then I need to start my training program.

But in order to do that, I have to recover.

Because I can't run if I can't take a full breath.

Booyeah. Another proposal I put together won us the contract.
That's two out of four written since just before Christmas and after the holiday.

The string of off and on days off is over. The laundry is almost wrangled back into shape. Boxes that have been waiting for over a year to be unpacked have been so. The kids' gifts of warm clothing have been washed and folded and (mostly) stowed in dresser drawers or pressed into service first thing this morning.

What's normal anyway? )

The steps are blanketed with a frosty coating that looks like powdered sugar as I look out the back door. Stepping on it gives lightly, like biting through a crisp cookie to get to the soft middle. The bannisters on the other hand are slick, frozen solid with an inch of clear ice on top of the snow that looks like it ought to have the same give, but doesn't when you grab on.

I've scattered fondant front and back to help keep things clear throughout the day, though I'll probably have to toss some more out the back to make it safe for Sabs and Julien to come home tonight in the dark. In spite of the space heater, I'm shivering up here in the office. Even the lightbulb in my lamp is casting palpable warmth that makes me lean towards that golden pool of light, eager for even that slight heat.

The cats clustered around me tightly earlier, all four in different positions around me in the bed as I hid under the covers for a few minutes before getting up again after the morning exodus. Tara cuddled up under my chin, Sasha perched on my hip and Pearl tucked herself in against my spine while Khepri played foot warmer. I can't blame them for gravitating to the big warm body. If I were as small as they are, I'd make a nest in the quilts and wouldn't come out until the house warms up some with the heat hiked up a little.

It looks like another busy day here. Yesterday was a constant stream of one thing after another for work that kept me gainfully occupied for the whole day. That level of busy is actually what I like: constant and consistent without tripping over into emergency 'chicken with head cut off' mode.

The space heater is starting to actually make a difference so I'd better get to it. The cold makes my brain sluggish and slower to kickstart, but I think I'm awake enough now to tackle something more complicated than my email.

In spite of the days off, in spite of the return to health in the kids, I just feel drained. It doesn't help that it's Day One of the Monthly Visit and am mildly anemic, or that Sabs had to work this weekend to make up for the unpaid sick days he took last week. I really, really have to finish up some work and have no oomph for it and just want the world to go away.
The kids are driving me nuts today )

Right now ... I never want to work with Drupal again.
I'm sure I'll feel better about that tomorrow.
But man. Talk about /finicky/ systems.
