[Tidbits and Chitchat]

Yesterday, I began my day by absentmindedly pouring water on my cereal instead of almond milk and followed that up by a dental appointment. It's been days like these that have thwarted any attempts to blog lately, so my apologies.

I did finally get my first-time home-buyers' tax credit--it only took eight months after filing my taxes and a six-month audit.  What this means is that I've finally managed to pay back my parents for helping buy my house and some of its repairs.  Now all I owe them for (financially) is the rest of the $10,000 they loaned me for my car.  This is why I want a full-time position.  Well, that, and insurance.  I can't get it.  Apparently, if I'm not a perfect physical specimen, I can't get health insurance. 

I'm still plugging away at my book, though right now, I'm in a research stage.  I need to familiarize myself with camping and botany before I can do anything more than scribble out some early drafts of pivotal conversations.  I've got a little written, but not enough to post, as there's too much of a gap in the action to understand the context of the convos.  I'm determined to see this one through though.  I've started many projects in the past, but none have survived past the third chapter or so, so I guess it's a good omen that I've gotten to chapter five. :)

Unfortunately, just being out of the writing mode for a couple of weeks really puts one out of the mode, so my thoughts seem to have run out.  I'm going to have to go back to setting up a set time for writing every day so I can regain my footing. 

Over and out!
