They threw away a little typing desk at work. Part of the metal on one leg had become bent, and the leg had come loose. I figured that if nothing else, it could be added to the pile of scrap metal we want to dump at one of the recycling places.

Couldn't figure out where we put my drill, so I punched a new hole in one unbent side of the leg with a hammer and nail, added some screws, and now the table is good as new. It's much steadier than the old TV-tray I have been typing on since My Angel fell on and broke the old table I'd been using, but it's higher too. I needed to switch chairs, and the one I needed was covered with a sadly neglected mix of clean (and now very wrinkled) laundry and (also wrinkled) mending. (I'd thought it was all mending until I started sorting it.)

Housework isn't writing, but sometimes it's a good thing anyway. Housework also isn't sketching, and this weekend was Sketchfest, but that's the way things roll sometimes. I also got some miscellaneous housework done--books moved to empty a room are back on a bookshelf, talked to my kid about her College career so far, trash and recyclables taken out, and so on.

Anyway, the new table and more suitable chair are now hanging out together, the cat who thinks this is her chair was displaced, and I got significant work done on a story this evening; I'm about as close to calling this a first draft as I can be until my collaborator weighs in.

I am therefore very hopeful that this will help my word count!

I'm sitting here typing this while half asleep mostly because the movie I've been re-watching/using as a writing soundtrack isn't quite over. Momentarily, I will fall into bed and dream deep.

See you all soon!

Sounds like a good rescue! And you perservered even though you couldn't find your drill, cool. I have a lot more housework that needs to be done :( but given that I'm mostly working on stuff to try to get it ready for the booth for Christmas, it's to be expected I think.

It was an excellent rescue! Yeah, I have lots of housework to do too, and making time for writing as one of my top priorities after work means the house stuff suffers.
