My Brain is on Hyperdrive

So much is going on, it's difficult to pinpoint what I'm thinking about long enough to write a coherent post. I suffer from adult ADD, but I'm usually pretty great at managing it. Today, however, I'm having a tough time focusing.

Here's a stream of consciousness post for you:

1) NaNoWriMo is going really well for me. My first WriMo since 2013 has been a volcano of creative energy. Maybe all this pent up imagination over the last two years has been dying to get out. You can check out my progress in my sidebar. I cracked 30,000 words on Sunday night. I'm way ahead, so now I'm running downhill from here.

2) My body hurts. Last weekend, I painted a bathroom. Have you ever done that? I was finding myself in all kinds of crazy yoga poses. I can paint three regular rooms in the time in takes me to paint a bathroom. This past weekend, I completely reorganized my horrible garage. I went from a three car to a two car garage. I know, First World problems.

3) No, I didn't see Thor. I hope to, but I'm just so busy. Justice League is coming, and I'm excited about it. I've been reading about some kind of Justice League project since 2007.

4) The time change has really screwed me up. It takes me over a month to adjust. Dark at 4:30 just isn't very nice.

5) Two of my neighbors put up their Christmas lights, which is fine. But they turned them on. I'm downright militant when it comes to celebrating Christmas too early. Yeah, the itch is there, but let's have Thanksgiving first!

6) Speaking of neighbors, this guy down the street told my youngest and his friends to get the f---k off his sidewalk. This idiot is always wearing a blue robe, and he punched out a construction worker for using his outdoor spigot during construction of his neighbor's house. I did go down there and explain to him that he doesn't own the sidewalk. He wasn't too happy about me standing on it, but he was too chicken to do anything about it.

7) Anybody else excited about The Last Jedi? I'm not too sure about yet another trilogy in Disney's future plans. They are just sucking the Star Wars franchise dry. At some point, there has to be some kind of diminishing returns on this thing.

8) We say this every year, but how the heck did it become almost mid-November? As we age, time seems to speed up.

Glad NaNo is going well.
I worked on our fence this past weekend and know what you mean about yoga positions and hurting.
I already have tickets for Justice League!

Congrats on being ahead.

I've seen several houses with Christmas lights up and it is way too early.

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

You are doing excellent with NaNo! Keep going!

I'm with you on the time change, although I do like that it's lighter earlier.

Sometimes it feels like people just skip Thanksgiving. Let's celebrate that first THEN move on to Christmas. Sigh.

Congrats on 30K. Go all the way.

well we already had thanksgiving here, so let the lights shine haha sounds like that neighbor is a douchebag indeed.

Well done and congrats to you. Keep your head up and best wishes!

Busy body, paranoid chick here...make a call to the police about the crazy neighbor. Just to have it on record. That isn't normal behavior to scream at kids on a sidewalk. Probably nothing, but paper trails never hurt.
I have been trying to declutter and find myself feeling lower back pain. I think gravity works differently for older bodies.

Oh, Lordy, most people in my country don't even have a garage :) We do hate premature Xmas decorations! They started with that nonsense even here, and we don't even celebrate Catholic Xmas LOL I don't do Star Wars anymore, such horribly boring casting of utter insignificants and rubbish stories.

Cherie Reich said...

That's awesome about NaNo! I'm looking forward to The Last Jedi and Justice League.

Pat Dilloway said...

I hate when people start celebrating Xmas even before the Halloween decorations are down. Though I did buy some wrapping paper this weekend.

Christine Rains said...

That's awesome you made 30k! Keep on going. I need to reorganize my garage too. I got a ceiling storage rack last week, and hopefully that will make it easier to get around the garage. I'm done almost all my Christmas shopping, but I won't decorate until after Thanksgiving.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Wow! You sound so productive reorganizing your garage and painting your bathroom. They are challenging to paint because they are so small. I stripped the wallpaper off mine but think I'll have someone else do the painting.

Too much to do with to little time to do it. And I know I mismanage a lot of my time. At least you brought things together in this post with some coherency. Maybe that's a good way to put your life in better perspective.
