I often make the joke that I am more “ish” than I am Jewish. It’s literally true, at least according to Ancestry.com’s results.
Anyway, how does that relate to a reading challenge? I’ll explain: one of my goals for 2021 is to read fifty two books this year. That breaks down to one a week…ish. I have a tendency to read in fits. So, it’s the -ish Challenge. A book a week-ish.

1 Finished Book
There’s always something a little jarring about finishing reading a book. Detaching one’s self from the fictional world and stepping back into the “real” world.

There is great disturbances in the United States right now. Some white terrorists stormed the Capital Building earlier today and ransacked the place. They were not treated as the BLM protestors were. At all. And I am shaking in rage at the unfairness of it all.
So I’m going to focus on what I can control.

So, after a scan six hours or less of sleep, I took J and Bill6 to the airport this morning. I managed to avoid napping the whole day somehow and got three loads of laundry done.

Boy was today a wonky but enjoyable day. I didn’t get much sleep last night. Just couldn’t shut down until after four a.m. I’m hoping I can bunk down here in the next few. I’m tired.
But a good tired.

I didn’t get the ten thousand words written that I wanted to today. I got lost down a rabbit hole of research. It is highly unlikely I will hit 50,000 words this month. I could cheat, and just say that I did it, but I’m not going to.

I’m sleep deprived. And took my sleeping medication that didn’t work last night. So I’m fighting to stay awake long enough to knock this out.
I’m still behind in NaNoWriMo, but I haven’t given up yet. I’ve got my therapy appointment with Mx. Steph tomorrow at eleven, so I’m going to spend most of my day writing if I can.
I’m goi to go appease the Duolingo owl and go to bed.
Take your meds folks.

I’ve been awake for 23 hours now. I don’t know why I can’t sleep but I can’t. I’m going to try and catch an hour nap now that Spock is here a d snuggling with me. No promises on success.
