Best-laid Plans

I originally had this idea that I would be starting school in a state of calm preparedness; caught up on math, ready for algebra, physically fit, disciplined, everything organized to make my 5am-11pm or later days flow smoothly. Yeah. Not so much. Chaos reigns.
Because I decided that I needed to repaint my room now, all of my stuff is crammed into the closet or shoved into the small guestroom. My freshly painted old dresser is out on the patio; everything it held is stuffed into a couple of drawers somewhere else. We got our new kitten yesterday. I am revamping my first novel into a Young Adult book for a submission to an e-publisher. I've reverted to stress-eating, a series of minor injuries keeps thwarting my workouts.
And it's okay. Somehow it will all turn out well. How? I don't know. It's a mystery.

I really love mystery stories, they always turn out to have that big "A-HA!" moment at the end right? Reading this was like deja vu for a second & then I remembered that's because it sounded an awful lot like my week last week too...

No sabotage allowed! You can and will succeed! You always do and you deserve this.
What color did you paint your room?

For a second I was about to ask why you needed to revamp the novel. All I remembered (at first) was that I really liked the world you created. Then I remembered that there was a lot of sex. So, okay...revamp. :)
