Monday To Do's

Ahh, Monday.

All I can say is I'm glad the weekend is over. Friday, as you all know, I cleaned until my digits were bloody stumps. The house looked spectacular, though. It's all ready begun the downhill slide towards needing to be cleaned again unfortunately. Thanks to everyone who commiserated with me.

Saturday was my chapter meeting featuring the fabulous C.L. Wilson and her take on worldbuilding. I was also elected Vice President again.

Sunday, I was recovering from a massive allergy attack and didn't get out of bed until after 12. Once I did get out of bed, Lara Santiago and I headed over to our chapter contest coordinator's for a massive Discrepancy Judging-a-Thon. About six of us dj'ed more than 30 entries. It was a long day. I'm glad Lara does math, because all that adding of scores made my head hurt.

So today is a fresh start on a new week that ends in fabulous meal that I (YAY!) don't have to cook or host or clean up after. I do have a few goals this week that I'm hoping to accomplish before that happens. Such as:

1. Some crits for my CP's.
2. Some final polishing on something of my own.
3. Some polishing/updating on a potential article for the RWR.
4. Laundry.
5. Trip to the post office.

What's on your list?


  1. 1) 1,000 written words
    2) work on two chapters of CP's
    3) Trip to Target
    4) Do the room mom "thang"
    5) go pick up free turkey at Acme

    Let's see, this week I have to:

    2) Make either pie or cheesecake
    3) Get back to editing on book 4 and/or
    4) Finish polishing book 3.
    5) Grade papers

  4. Since I started working at home, I find that I'm busier than I was when I worked at the paper.
    Today, I'm working on a book format for Parker Publishing. I also have a magazine to work on that's due to the printer on Nov. 28. Then there's housecleaning (Yes, Kristen. I feel obligated to keep the house clean since I'm working at home. My mother's spirit has invaded my body.), Bryan calls me about 7 times a day (4 times already this morning to answer questions about stuff at the newspaper.) I will take an hour lunch break, followed by 15 minutes of exercise. Then I'm back on the computer again until Bryan comes home from work.

  5. 1) Write review of Gena Showalter's fabulous new Alien Huntress book
    2) Finish crits for CP's new manuscript in time for her to hit her due date to her editor (which means,TODAY)
    3) At least five loads of laundry, so we have something to pack for our Thanksgiving trip
    4) Choir practice tonight
    5) Pay bills

    Crap, I'd better stop messing around the blogosphere and get to work.

  6. 1. paint kitchen
    2. paint rader's room
    3. paint ian's room
    4. try not to obsess over whether or not my manuscript is sucking raw eggs while CPs are critting it.

    Gee, think i'll be busy?
