Long, yet not

In many ways, January was a looooong month. On the other hand, I can't believe that it's already February. 

In assorted news: For the first time in over a month, I felt well enough to go to my Tahitian dance class...and it was cancelled because of the rain.

The insurance guy came about my laptop and J's digital camera, which where damaged during the flood, but if the landlady isn't insured and if the insurance company feels like being jerks (and don't they always when it comes to getting some of your money back?) about the classification of the damage ("everyday" water damage, rather than "natural disaster), then we may not be able to get any money out of it. Bye bye, laptop; bye bye, camera.

I've been working on my Spanish. Yay, me. I've been working on simple vocabulary, but that's all right with me. Once I have enough words, then I'll worry more about putting them together.

My writing is also moving along. I'm up to 33K. I hope to bring it in at around 90K. We'll see.

Other than the fact that my house is clean at the moment--except for the terrace and the laundry (yes, *still* from the flood [it won't dry with all the humidity in the air!!!] Let's not talk about laundry)--I've not been doing too great with all of my goals. That doesn't really distress me because, as I may have said "aloud", for me January was always supposed to be a test month. I didn't count on being sick, too.

Here's to hoping that February sees me making progress with the other areas like drawing, polishing shorts, writing a query/synopsis for The Traveler's Daughter, harmonica playing....
