Ugh.

Ugh. Just ---- ugh. Things have not been good here and I'm afraid I cannot tell you about them. I'm sorry to say that the Magical Month of Academic Publishing Challenge had to go by the wayside at the end, as I had to deal with some major catastrophes that were entirely out of my hands. I still have the article to finish, of course, and the other article to revamp and send out, and my whole huge list of other publishing-type things to do, and classes to prep and papers which I was unable to pick up to get and grade and things to unpack and repack and move around and lots of cleaning to do before I can get to any of that and just ugh, you know? It can't be described any more completely than that, and yet, if you groan with exactly the right intonation, you won't need anything else to get across exactly what's going on right now.

At least the good part of being at the bottom is that it has to get better from here --- I'm on my way back up. Up, up, up. Not Ugh. Up.

I feel the same. Stuck. Too many things to do just to get other things done. One thing at a time...I guess...

Oh no! So sorry to hear about the ugh! But it sounds as if you've reached the bottom, at least.

I'm sending you some mojo, just in case.
