My in-laws have been staying in my house for nearly a week now and I have no privacy, quiet, or time alone (except for very brief periods when Holly can drag them to the shops, as she has this afternoon). I have a deadline I’m far past for the revisions to my Black Archive book — which I’m finding it nearly impossible to work on because of said in-laws. I’m overloaded at work but my executive function problems, coupled with the stress of not being allowed any peace, mean I’m not capable of getting that done at the rate I need to.
I am sick, burned out, and constantly having to perform a role (that of neurotypical human being) for which I am almost uniquely unsuited.
I want to write more, but right now I am literally incapable. Once I’m allowed any time to myself again, this might change. If nothing else, though, you can expect a review of next Tuesday’s Brian Wilson/Al Jardine/Blondie Chaplin gig, and of the new Monkees album on Friday of next week…
