Argh. Determined to finish another annotation tonight, for a grand total of two done. I had no idea it was going to be this much work, y’all. I don’t know how many I can crank out by the end of the week (because you want a certain amount of quality control), but my poor mother is freaking out because the termite people have increased our rates, we've had to pay for new car tags, and our accountant decided to charge us $800 for doing our taxes this year, rather than $200-something, because previously he was the CPA where my stepfather worked (coworker discount, I guess?), and now he's not. I am seriously afraid one of us is going to fall and break a leg, or someone's going to have a fender bender, or maybe someone's teeth will explode--anything to cost us even more money. Because it's getting ridiculous, the way everything is costing more and everything is costing it now. And like I said yesterday, I can't work when I'm tense. Stress or panic makes me freeze up, but I can't even afford to indulge my nerves now. So every time my mother starts pacing and muttering, I let my inner seven-year-old start shouting, "WHEN I AM DONE I WILL BUY MYSELF A WEBKINZ BLACK CAT YAY! AND IT WILL BE FUN! AND I WILL PLAY ON THE COMPUTER ALL AFTERNOON! MONEY IS WHAT GROWNUPS BUY CANDY WITH! WHEEEEEE!" It's like, I have to pretend I don't have grownup worries in order to deal with the grownup worries. It's a childish zen thing, I guess.
