It’s Sunday night, and I’m less than hour away from going to sleep. I thought I’d take some quiet time to discuss some of the things going on and help organize my thoughts for the week to come.

1. My Dad is Out of the Hospital
My Dad had a scare a few weeks ago, after having COVID. He did well with COVID but developed a terrible case of pneumonia that hospitalized him and had every quite worried. Luckily, he’s home now, although he’s still not feeling great and has to use oxygen.

2. My Phone is Dying
My stupid phone is on its last legs and I’m doing everything I can to keep it alive. The power button has failed me, so now I’ve found a few work around to lock my phone, but if my phone dies, it’s anyone’s guess on whether or not I’ll be able to boot it back up.

3. My Dad is Moving
My father is moving nearby within the next two weeks, which means I’ll be helping with some unloading and moving stuff, especially in his weaken state. That will take up some of my weekend time.

4. We Gotta Move
The time has come to get out of my mother and step-fathers home. It’s unfortunate, because we hoped to move into a place we were going to buy from here and we really hoped to have more money saved up. Unfortunately, his alcoholism is taking a toll on everyone and we’re going to have to find an apartment and just hope that things work out for the best down the road.

5. Which Means… We Gotta Live A Bit Poorer
In order to save for a place to buy, we’re going to need to save more money, which means were going to have to tighten the belt quite a bit. It’s been a few years since I’ve really had to scrap and save, and as weird as this may sound, I’m kinda looking forward to it.

6. My Mom Has COVID
Now, my mom has COVID and we are under the same roof. Apparently my stepsister and stepfather don’t care, but Brandy and I have been keeping a reasonable distance and staying up in our room this weekend. Fingers crossed.

7. I Haven’t Made as Much Progress As I Wanted Writing Fiction
One night I wrote the first three chapters of a book and I decided it wasn’t the route I wanted to go in. I haven’t made near the progress I hoped for in January but I’m trying to cut myself some slack. See above.

So, I guess I have a lot going on right at this moment, with finding a new place to live being the most important. I’m hoping by acknowledging all this stuff in my head, I’ll be able to rest easy tonight and begin my week on a good foot.
