So I’m curled up at home instead of at the pub, and I’m fine with this. It’s lovely hanging out with everyone, but I don’t think I’m fit company right now.  So it goes sometimes. Self-care is important, as is not spreading germs. 🙂

I have managed to find one semi-productive outlet today. I’ve not done great at work-work, I’ve barely touched my knitting, but I  *have* written over 3,000 words. It’s November, which means NaNoWriMo. I’m not doing ‘real’ NaNo, but rather, doing a lot of ramblethought on my account. I might try to get a few more words out of my head once I’m done here, if only to build up a cushion.

On the whole though, it’s worked nicely with my style of doing the day. I do some work, I scribble down some thought-words into a Word document. I do some more work, I jot down more as it comes to mind. It works for me and my crappy brain. As Z has noted over the years, I tend to hyperfocus for tiny fragments of time, and just sort of rotate it around. He’s a saint though, and slowly learned over the years that I am not purposefully ignoring him, and that it’s completely possible for me to respond without actually being aware of responding. I try to slow down the cycling when he’s home out of respect and because I legit care about his things, but sometimes it is what is.

As said, not done a lot on my knitting. I might pick it up here in a few minutes. I might ignore that and just do more Civ 6. Man, can I say that it’s a great game? Because it really is. I love the franchise (except for Civ 4), and this one just gives you al ot of different ways to play. And, the best part — Z and I are both playing it right now. While we have a large overlap in our game ownership lists, we rarely if ever are playing the same thing. He tends to be more console-based, while I prefer to stay curled up with a computer. Someday, he will go spelunking with me in Minecraft, and someday I will join him again on the couch for a racing game or something.

For now though, I flee! 🙂
