...thought it was just a road from a to b

Actually, when I went up Grouse this morning I was pretty sure it was a mountain. Made the hike in 1:53, which is a terrible time for me, mitigated by a) not having my inhaler, b) not having done much exercise in the past month or so, and c) encountering a chatty hiking companion at about the quarter-mark.

Plans to sit up there and do some writing once I'd had lunch and recovered a bit were derailed by being too exhausted to write. Something about having effectively climbed two miles worth of stairs. I wandered around a bit and then headed back down. and after the two-hour trip home had a nice hot bath.

Tomorrow marks the end of my fallow year. I am not really looking forward to work but I'd be looking forward even less to getting evicted for nonpayment of rent, so there's that. I hope I'm overreacting, that balancing work and life won't be nearly the difficulty I'm afraid it is and that everything will be okay. Only one way to find out I guess.

I like that saying, about the mountain. Seems like a nice plot structure :)

Good luck with the new year! There are many things about the new situation which could turn out just wonderful. I hope they do.

Even though balance is like the #1 thing that I bitch about, I think that while you can't do everything you like, balance in some form is always possible.

I find the dreading of work-type things is often a lot worse than doing them turns out to be; at least a bunch of the time you end up working rather than worrying about it.

Good luck.

Wow, that sounds like some climb! I'm seriously impressed!

Good luck with the new job. I hope it's wonderful!

Yeah. That sounds about right.
