I’ve been up for a while now and would like to get dressed, but I put it off too long. Scott is currently working on putting new knobs on the door to our bedroom. That involves a lot of drilling and mess. I think he must be nearly done. I hope so, anyway.

I spent a lot of yesterday listening to audiobooks. I’d like to do more of that today, but I’ll have to find a place to set up where I’m far enough from where Scott is that we can both hear what we’re playing.

The times my gynecologist has available on the 20th are times when I absolutely cannot go in, so they’re supposed to call me again with an alternative. Basically, the earliest time they could do was 2:45, and I need to pick Cordelia up from school at 3:00, so… Yeah. Her friends who I would trust to be here with her without me present are all in the drama club. The performance is at the end of the month, and they’re all staying at school until 5:00 every day until then.

I haven’t set up PT for Cordelia yet because I wanted to get the gynecology appointment scheduled first.

Cordelia had three friends over last night, and they watched Howl’s Moving Castle (I haven’t been able to persuade her to try the book. I like it, so it must be boring) and the Ember Island Players episode of Avatar: the Last Airbender.

There are still a lot of folks around here with power out. We haven’t had a flicker, so I’m counting us lucky. The wind did, however, strip shingles off the roof of the garage. The garage needs major work, not just in terms of the roof but more generally. We simply don’t have the money, though, so I kind of expect the garage to just fall apart on us one of these days. Hopefully, nothing we care about will be in there at the time.

In a couple of hours, we need to drive Cordelia over to spend the night with a friend. We’re planning to drop off our library returns either on the way there or on the way back because Traverwood isn’t much out of the way. I’ve got a couple of DVDs due today that can’t be renewed, so it’s necessary. We’ll still pick up our holds tomorrow. I’ve got two DVDs that we’ll likely watch as a family. One of them (Moana), we expect to enjoy; the other (Batman v. Superman), not so much, but one of Cordelia’s friends is passionately into the DC cinematic universe.

My main goal for today is to start writing that pinch hit. I settled on which prompt to write to, so I’ve at least gotten that far. I think I know my POV character, too. I was going to start last night but ended up getting distracted and writing something else instead. I haven’t written much at all this week, though, so I’m more glad to have written anything at all than annoyed that I didn’t work on what I had planned to.
