Personal note; status update...

Where I am this morning....

1. Weather

The thunderstorms predicted for yesterday and last night got postponed to today and tonight, so they're still on my calendar. And I am now throughly ashamed of myself for whining about them, given the weather catastrophes in Burma/Myanmar and in China.

2. Emergency/crash/has-to-be-done-yesterday project

As always happens with these, I can't get started on the urgent work because I have to wait on a giant bureaucracy to make the first move. Than which few things are more frustrating.

3. First verbal self-defense book revision project

My proposed first draft, short a few bells and whistles that have to be done at the very last minute, goes to my editor today. And then I will wait, as it winds its way from reader to reader, to find out whether it's considered satisfactory or not.

4. Combination of #2 and #3

Both projects, both with deadlines rushing at me, are now on hold for a period of time that I can't predict and have no control over. Than which few things are more frustrating. Which means that the wisest move for me is to start writing the July/August newsletters now, so that they'll be done -- at least in rough draft, ready for updating -- when I'm finally able to start work on #2 and #3 again.

5. Mood

Stoical elderly. I don't think there's an icon for that.
