Interrupted

I wrote for about eight hours today, trying to sort out my thoughts on community and isolation for Home, Part 2. It's almost ready, but it's just not quite there. Twice, I completely wrote it, then threw it away. So, about 8:45, when I was in the throes of writing, we had a phone call. Someone wants to rent the house! Yay! And they want to move in two days! Boo!

All that to say, who knows if I'll finish what I worked on today. For the next 36 hours, I'll be packing like a mad woman.

You can't post something and then take it away. It's like starting a conversation with, "You know what I was thinking....oh, oh...nevermind".

I got halfway through your now deleted post and got interrupted, and now when I return, it is gone.

One day, some big library is going to want all your little thoughts and short writings and we're just going to have to say, "Sorry, she teased us and deleted most of them before we ever got to read them". It will be the world's loss, I guess.

Oh, and good luck on moving in a few days.

I agree with Lane. Don't tease us - give us what you got! =)

And as for the packing - you should have that down to an art now. Just remember to keep full meals out of the laundry basket!!!

It is "Mont-Hell" but back off some of us still live there! Yes boys and girls for those of you who care, I've moved a little closer to "red statehood" in that I used duct tape this morning to repair my car. I gotta do something to counteract this like watch a bunch of Michael Moore movies or something.
