For the first five months of this year, it seemed everything I did, every plan I made, was made with the ultimate goal of making sure that nothing, absolutely nothing, interfered with my Fabulous South-of-the-Border vacation. I manipulated people and projects at work so that when vacation time came, they'd have no reason to say I had to postpone. And that took some doing at times, I tell you. Working overtime. Planning ahead to start projects that hadn't even been assigned to me yet. Badgering the boss to hire more people, even to bring back people I don't like.

I pinched pennies and put off major purchases, I dabbled in story projects while obsessing about trip itinerary details, I had horrible, passing, secret wishes about the needs and emergencies of people in my life and the Sculptor's not becoming too demanding.

And then the vacation happened. And now it's over. Of course, I spent two weeks afterwards recovering physically and pouring through photos. But I finished that Sunday night, and suddenly, I have all this time on my hands.

But not really. I have things I was working on before that I'm not even sure how to get back into. My old novel, which really needs to see the light of day, my new story, which I'm only a couple chapters into. My house, which is always a work in progress.

There are are other things, but those are the three major ones, I suppose. Time to focus.
