Here’s what happened in my life over the past week:
- I published the 2nd edition of my book Managing the Depression Puzzle. I tend to mentally block out just how tedious the final formatting is, right up until I have to do it again. Kindle Create is a pain in the ass, as is getting everything right for epub format. And then there’s uploading it to different sites, hoping it’ll work properly. Amazon did work, Google Play didn’t so much, and Apple Books is always a bit of a disaster. Plus Goodreads annoys me… Anyway, rant over.
- Woodpecker mating season must be starting. I have a northern flicker male that roosts on my balcony year-round, and during mating season he pecks on my barbeque in the morning to assert his territory. Pecking started for the season a couple of days ago.
- I’ve been approved for disability benefits, so finally that whole shitshow is over and done with. With that taken care of, I resigned from the casual job I still had despite not working for over a year.
- I have a pinched nerve in my back, and whatever position I naturally sleep in is not helping. It’s not that big a deal, but there’s something satisfying about whining anyway.
Peanut knows I have a treat for him, and he’s quite excited about it. Yet he doesn’t really like crossing from his blanket to another surface. When I hold out the treat, he gets over that. He then stretches himself out super-long, grabs it, and dives back to the blankets. Funny little potato.
How has your week been?
