Preorder. What was I thinking?

It seemed like a good idea to set a deadline and have a target to shoot for. It was a great motivator. Amazon’s pressurey emails get increasingly menacing as you get closer and closer to the due date without a final version uploaded. It places some gentle stress and threatens with the possibility of losing preorder privileges for a year. I’m not sure, but I think the emails implied that they had other ways to exact their revenge from me. Subtle, terrible ways.

What fun!

Timing-wise, it was, perhaps, questionable. We were still looking for our place (found one!) and living with my folks who’ve been extremely generous letting us do this. Still, we’re aware that we’re invaders here and trying not to mess up my Mom’s rather specific decor with our stuff too badly, and mostly failing. I have headphones and computers all over the place. Without a dedicated desk to work off of, I’m distracted and uncomfortable. I need space to focus, so that’s a challenge. I lost a few days to driving the last of our stuff out here during the preorder run up. Really, I could have picked a further date to minimize some of that, but then it would have impacted our house search and you wouldn’t have a book to read.

In the end, we got it done, so that’s the main thing.

Now to go buy a house.
