I tried distracting myself as much as I could. I bought shoes, these and these. To make up for that, I finally tackled my overflowing shoe corner in the closet and got rid of 10 pairs in one way or another. I also did some Christmas shopping, which always makes me happy.
Did it all work? To some degree, I guess.
I've been debating seasonal_spuffy. I haven't done it in years. I haven't written Spuffy in years. But I've recently reread two of my stories, and I've been watching the show again with my friend L...and I miss them. The problem is, I know I don't have the time. And did I mention I haven't done it in years? It's been even longer since I read any. I'm terrified about not being able to produce anything worthwhile. I probably won't end up following through--I know how I can talk myself out of these things--but I do fantasize about doing it. *sigh*
