Normally, I can manage the IC because I generally work from home. I don't really have a choice, because it flairs up randomly, for long periods of time, and it can be completely debilitating. But this past week I was filling in as the language arts teacher at a fantastic outdoor middle school around here, and it was tough. I love the school, I love teaching, and I'm always grateful to have part-time work to supplement writing, but it was tough.
The astoundingly good news is that the geniuses managed to salvage the hard drive and save my photos, but the bad news is the computer is a piece of toast. It even smelled like toast, sort of, when it exploded. If you've ever considered donating to the wilder coast, well, let me just state that we're experiencing some serious mechanical failure on this end. I gathered some sea glass from Golden Gardens on my last visit from Seattle, so for the next few weeks I'm bringing back the sea glass necklaces as a thank you. (As well as the handwritten card. #makemoremail, yes!)
Something else I enjoyed this week were all your comments on the mystery prize monday post. If your ever up at night and your radio dies, I recommend reading these comments. They'll make you feel a little more normal, and calm, and sort of soothed but also sort of in control. I love it. I'd like to create a post out of them and I think that I will this week.
And finally, I have to delay this week's Mystery Prize Monday. I've teamed up with dig and it's going to be a good one, but we're just too sick over here right now to make it happen. It will be up next Monday. I'm sorry about that, but when it comes to mystery prizes, I like to abide by this lesson.
And now, this week's winner!
Thank you for reading. I hope you had a lovely Sunday and I'll see you later on this week.
