Mistress Marilyn's POV
No shit, Tempus Fugit!
Back at LJ -- forever! 
24th-Jun-2007 09:57 am
Big sigh! 15-hours day are over, and it's time for the difficult re-entry into RL. For me RL includes blogging at LJ, writing and fandom, as well as tennis (Wimbledon starts tomorrow!). It also includes working out (did the Tmill last night) and working in the yard (haven't quite gotten around to that). Tomorrow night is our Writer's Circle, and I started my story yesterday ("Fuck Utopia").

Yesterday I spent a few hours cleaning my closet. Now I have several drawers to clean and a few bags of old clothes to get rid of, but at least I won't be taking my jewelry out of a huge pile on my dresser or rummaging through piles of t-shirts and shoes to find something to wear. I can't believe the way I've been living for the past few months.

Was the Centennial everything I could have wished for? Everything except a money-maker. We'll deal with that later, and it will be ten times more grueling than the 70-80 hour weeks. The festival itself was so packed with potential memories, it felt like living in the DVR, speeding up and slowing down at will. The one thing I didn't allow myself to envision was the rainiest parade day in my history. And yet, it was still the best parade ever.

In the meantime, Charlie and I now have a new kitten (rescued from the Humane Society on Thursday, June 21) and LJs for life (purchased on the same day). The new baby, the red-headed Henry Tudor, is now sneezing away with upper respiratory (why can't they do anything about this problem at the HS?) and Colin is already sick, as well. Nice.

Yes, I'm back. Same stuff, different day. And there's more comfort in that than anyone can imagine.

Welcome back, Miss M!

Congrats on the best centennial parade ever.

And successfully wrangling in your closet! I've just started on mine. Quite a job.

LJ's for life. Wow!

Can hardly wait to see what Henry looks like. I hope both he and Colin are well soon.

Yes, summer brings fun. It's the Tour de France for me.

Love the title of the story you're writing, btw. :-)

I'm so glad you're back at LJ!!!

Hurray for us!

Hurray for a great Centennial, an amazing (if rainy) parade, a new kitten (sweet and sassy little Henry) and Permanent Accounts here at LJ! Plus summer is here, soon you'll be on four-day weeks (!!!) and on vacation and we'll be playing tons of tennis.

Life is decidedly good!

Life is sweet. (Now I'll use the 'sweet' icon featuring Henry!)

Wow, a permanent journal. Good for you. I hope you'll come join our Tudor communities and write some fanfic now that your busy season is over. I appreciate your encouragement to write more, and I miss playing with you!
