Valya Dudycz Lupescu

Writer, fueled by coffee

Today is made of yesterday


I heard back today from the hardware store, and my missing notebook has been found!

*Does happy dance*

I am SO grateful. Upon first glance it seems like just a spiral bound notebook full of kid scribbles (because Lana got into one day), but it contained all my notes for Conclave and some house measurements as well.

Last night I was feeling tired and a tad grumpy, so I went to bed early. Tonight I shall brew coffee and strive to be uber-productive.

    That “uber productive”—let me know how that went for you. If you succeeded, let me know how the hell to do that.
