Strange things, indeed

Have you ever had an appliance malfunction on you and then when someone pops in to take a look at it, it works just fine?

That's happened to me before with the car. Last night it happened with the washing machine. Stupid machine decided to work just fine while the guy came in to check it out, making a liar out of me. Why do machines like to do that to people? :/

Anyway. Now I have to keep an eye on it and write down what flashes when it decides to cut out five minutes after the washing cycle has begun. I'm determined to get to the bottom of this because that just doesn't sound normal to me. There's gotta be something wrong with it, I just have no idea what. It's still under warranty, so I'm hoping the mystery will be solved soon.

Hopefully, the rest of the week will settle down and be a lot quieter. It seems to get chaotic when there are a lot of real life-type stuff to get out of the way, doesn't it? I haven't been able to spend as much time with the book I'm currently reading as I would like to. Maybe this afternoon.

Well, the revision is still moving along nicely. I'm now up to page 132 and would love to reach page 155 by the end of today's session. That'll leave me in a great spot to finish up the rest of the story by the end of tomorrow. I'm really excited by the small changes I'm making, but already know that it'll need one final read-through before I'm happy to call it done. Which is fine with me. I'm the type of person that could revise a story a thousand times if I let myself. So, I make sure that I stop myself after three drafts. One to write it, one to fix it, one to finalise it.

No point in putting it off any longer. It's time to get back to it.

Oh, you know what I realised today that made me smile? This is the last month of winter. Awesome!
