As our frequent moves can testify (basically from California/Las Vegas to Florida and back three times), there’s always this in-between time when trying to get settled after a cross-country move. I’m usually not very productive during one of those transition periods. I never feel that much at home in my office or studio. So I usually flail about, blog a lot, and generally do whatever my anxious brain will allow me to do.

This time was different. For one thing, for most of the time here, I had access to a fabulous casita. I loved it! I was so productive out there. In fact, it was the best part of this rental house. it felt normal – new carpet, even. Until the sliding glass door started becoming irregular and unreliable. Concerned that it would get stuck open, allowing the cats to get out, we stopped using it. Especially since the owners won’t fix it (we also discovered they’ve put this house up for sale – we discovered this when a realtor texted to set up a showing).

Anyway, back to the casita. I moved my studio into the “dungeon” – that room on the first floor that’s always cold and where the cat litter is situated in the attached bathroom. As a tri-level, the living room and kitchen are on the second floor, the level where my casita was located (over the garage).

Even though we’re in-between, I still participated in 2 FAWMS (February Album Writing Month), 1 50/90 (write 50 songs in 90 days), and 1 Rocktober (perform classic rock songs). That’s pretty darn good. I also finished writing draft 1 of a novel, although I haven’t really been able to focus on finishing draft 2.

But now that we may or may not be 30 days from closing, I’ve kinda lost all focus on anything other than blogging – lol!

And I’ve gotten totally distracted and off topic. I called this post “Dreaming of a Pool” and I’m thinking this one would look pretty awesome in our backyard:
