Doors

We are getting a new entrance door installed today. In fact, the construction guy is working on it right now, as I type out this post. We chose to get a navy blue door--it matches our house beautifully, so now the geometric art will show up better on the storm door's glass. We've got a few gardening issues to attend to as well, and once we do that, our home will have more curb appeal, which is important, because hubs has recently been talking about retirement again, and we want to move someplace warmer. As in, we're okay with a little snow or cold in the winter, but this sub-zero tundra stuff is not helping my lupus symptoms and we are both less tolerant as we age. We are thinking eastern Tennessee because we love it there or perhaps the Carolinas so we can be nearer the ocean and mountains. My #1 choice, however, is a place we will perhaps go to for extended trips, but hubs doesn't want to permanently move there because of the language barrier. I very much want to relocate to Costa Rica.

Sigh. Murphy's law--the door doesn't fit right, so now we need to find a new door. Today.

We're also trying to sell our boat. Something is wrong with the motor and it needs to be replaced. It's a 20-year-old boat, and we've enjoyed it for 16 years, but it's time to sell. I'm fielding the questions right now. The only serious inquiry we have right now is a Mexican guy, so I'll need to be at the marina with hubs tomorrow to translate.

NaNoWriMo already officially cancelled in-person meet-ups for the rest of 2020 due to COVID concerns and meeting in large groups. I used to be the municipal liaison (ML) for my region, so I planned all the write-ins, retreats, parties, etc. I'm not sure if this would have been an easier year for me, or a tougher one, to plan. I think the most difficult thing for me back then was assessing how many writers would come to events. We had one event that drew so many people, we took over an entire coffee shop, and we had to go upstairs to bring down more chairs to squeeze everyone in! It was a beautiful disaster, but I was thrilled to have such an exciting November, which is (Inter-)National Novel Writing Month and have so many people writing with me that year. Our TGIO (Thank George It's Over) party was epic that year, too. Anyway, our new ML has a co-ML this year and she's doing a fantastic job, so I know the region is in good hands.
