I'm going to take some time after writing this to deal with some more of those tasks, but I also have to try to get to bed at an earlier hour tonight, get up earlier tomorrow, and get more things done. I have some organizing tasks I could do, which aren't urgent and thus doing them would be more avoidance. But organizing things tends to put me in a better mood, so I may do them anyhow as a means of getting in a better mindset to do the other tasks.
I'm also sitting on the threshold of having more work. I now have the potential to get more work out of my main client as some restructuring means I can get work from two different groups, but it may be a while before I see anything from that. I'm also still waiting to hear about the part-time professional job I applied for in mid-June; I still can't say anything more about it other than that I have reason to believe they haven't yet made decisions and that I would definitely hear from them whether or not they wanted me.
I want to close this on a positive note, and so I'll just remark that yesterday was nine months since my car crash last October. As I mentioned, I was out dancing Saturday night until dawn and I had a great time. While out dancing, I realized that every time I go now amounts to being a celebration of the fact that I'm still alive. Whatever else is bothering me, I'm still happy for that.
