You know, I've been doing stuff, but I can't tell you what I've been doing.
Some of the stuff I can't tell you because I'm just not sure what I've been doing. Stuff like calling the gas company out to fix a gas leak outside our property (on the nature strip), and stuff like calling the Family Assistance Office to see if my kids conscientious objector forms are on file... But I can't think what else. Just stuff, mundane stuff that comes along with living and running a household and being a parent.
Then there is other stuff, exciting stuff, stuff that isn't happening this week or next week, but that I can't talk about because it's all secret squirrel kind of stuff, but it's so, so surprising and exciting to me (not so much to the Grumpy Old Man, he's not excited - more just going with the flow because resistance doesn't change reality, but the boys are, or at least I think they would be if they knew)... But, but, but, as much as I want to tell you all about the Big Excitement™ I have to wait until the time is right...
I can tell you it's not about anyone getting a job - nothing could make me contain that kind of excitement. Obviously, it's also not about the Grumpy Old Man getting a licence, though I fully expect to be writing about that excitement soon enough.
Yes, yes, I know I'm being irritatingly cryptic - I just had to tell people I have cause to be excited about stuff, even though I can't talk about it yet.
Meanwhile, I'm in that stupid place mentally where I'm totally preoccupied by stuff I can't talk about and so I feel like I have nothing to talk about. My preoccupation (hyper focusing is something people with ADHD are very good at) is also getting in the way of all the other stuff I was doing before I knew about The Excitement™.
I haven't gotten much further on my crocheted blanket. Truth be told, I went with a very repetitive pattern and I'm bored, so bored with it already and I have 4/5s to go. I will finish it. I've decided to view it as a challenge, as a way to practice some commitment. But it's very hard, I tell you... White, lavender, purple, black, white, lavender, purple, black, and very occasionally, white, red, maroon, black - but not often enough to make it really interesting... My next project will have to be all sorts of mixed up colours to re-inspire me!
Also, writing... What writing??? I haven't written a word of fiction in weeks! I keep looking at the various prompt blogs, but I feel totally disconnected from my writing right now. Too preoccupied with stuff. Boring stuff and very exciting secret squirrel stuff!
