I’m All Shook Up

Construction has begun in earnest now right outside my bedroom window, and to say it’s been jarring would be an understatement. I walked back into my room a few minutes ago and the nightstand had literally been bounced at least a foot away from the wall. The noise from the huge equipment they are using is constant, and the amount of dirt they are stirring up is astounding.

As someone who generally sits on her bed to write, this is disturbing. I feel as though I’m suffering motion sickness and my ability to concentrate has flown right out the window and is now resting somewhere in that pile of dirt. I know happiness is a choice and that this is a situation that I cannot control. All I can do is try to make the best of it and maintain a positive attitude. Now where did I place that?

  1. Geez! You might as well box up anything delicate until that is over with. I feel for you. I think all writers have a mental sanctuary but we can only get there through our physical sanctuary. You might have to find another spot in a library or something for awhile. :-“(

    It’s possible it may have bounced off somewhere when a huge construction vehicle rumbled by. Even the dust bunnies are probably shaking their wee ears. Hoping the disturbance is as brief as possible.

  3. That does not look like fun. 😦

  4. Oh dear (((((hugs))))) 😦

    I hope it doesn’t last too long xx

    So sorry you have to endure this. All the best!

  6. If I had a garden, and construction put that big of a pile of dirt next to me, I’d be sorely tempted to “revamp” my garden. Would I actually do it? Probably not. Too afraid of being caught. There might be a story there. A body part sticking out of the dirt? No one notices and it goes into the foundation of the building. Building forever haunted. Here’s hoping they finish ahead of schedule. 🙂

    Wow. All I can say is that looks like it sucks. You poor thing. I guess one good thing is that you know that it will end eventually even though that may be longer that you would like.
