How I Spent My Summer Vacation.
I drove. I unpacked. I made a lot of stuff. I found a new addiction. My ego got stroked. My heart got banged up. I made new friends. I missed old friends. Things I thought would succeed were rip-roaring failures, and things I never considered projects hit the big time. I blogged too little. I slept too much. I created a haven. I repeated myself more than I thought possible. I was given opportunities to do things that scared me---and I did some of them. I did very little laundry. I ate too much. I survived a long and painful bout of EITTTS. I bought myself a tiny vacuum cleaner. I did a big, important repair and did it well. I swept and swept and swept. I discovered that OCD---not mine, silly!---can be a wonderful thing. I spent a little time alone---and good things came of it. I sniffed way too much spray paint, resin, and burning Sculpey.
