I made it through yesterday's rainy day without any significant flooding! Now it's turned to snow and supposed to be cooler the next few days, so I can put the carpet back and relax for a while. Hurrah!
The date is set. I requested the week of April 11-15 off work for finishing/celebrating book 5. Would have loved to do it a week earlier, but I need to do reports that week. Still, not too long to wait!
While I've been at a standstill with writing due to the Florida trip and assorted catching-up, I'm very grateful for the progress I've made in my head. Some bothersome details with an upcoming chapter have been sorted out, and I also had a big reveal in regard to the Geren book sequels, since I was feeling a trifle paralyzed over whether there was supposed to be more foreshadowing at the end of book 5. Hopefully I can get back into writing soon!
You're having snow? *low whistle* That sounds like a lovely treat for you this month! (We're having glorious wonderful sunshine and I'm rather regretting that I don't have a balcony to nestle on at the moment. Huh.)
And congratulations on almost being done with book 5! That is a massive, massive milestone!
(And the new side-image is adorable. So colourful and cheerful. ^-^)
So good you can relax again and not be worried about flooding. I really
thing you should look into moving when the weather is nice. At least check out what is available out there.
It is hard to believe you are that close to finishing Book 5.
