I’m on my last two days of time off. It has been a good one. I actually feel like I accomplished what I needed to and had down time. Now I have to start acclimating myself to sleep hours more conducive to working – i.e. going to bed before 2 am.
We are getting rid of the evil Charter on Monday so this weekend we need to clear off the DVR. That won’t take long. I’ve been working on crocheting while we do that and Stephanie’s afghan is coming along nicely. It is getting to the point where it takes me quite some time to go around the edge of her afghan. I’ve also got a book Vicki got me from the library to read as well as several books that have been downloaded.
This week I’ve gotten a several things submitted and some writing done. I still have more to do (don’t I always?) but I’m good with the progress I’ve made. This vacation has definitely been a good one.
Today I have to work five hours and then I’m on vacation for a week!!! I cannot wait. My plans – well if you’ve read my blog at all you probably know – are to write. Okay so the weekend is for the family. We are going to the carnival for lunch tomorrow. I won’t wander but the rest of them can while I read a book in the car. Then we are going to go see a movie, probably the new Transformers movie.
Sunday I have a date with Ken and we are going to clean off our DVR. Why? Well we are switching carriers for cable and internet because Charter raised my bill by $60 and I can’t afford that. This means we have to watch everything on the DVR because they come the week after I’m done with vacation.
After that I have no plans. Ken will be home from work on Monday so we will probably do more DVR stuff. There are also a few things around the house I want to get done. It depends on the weather. It would be great to grill out but again depends on the weather.
I’ve got four essays to polish up, an essay to get ready for submission to a pub I always submit to, a manuscript which is just crying for me to work on, and a pile of possible places for submitting my work to. Other than that not a lot of plans… 🙂 Oh yeah and I want to wade through my books and get my spreadsheet updated and the books themselves organized. Those are my primary goals for the week. I have a secondary list but I’m trying not to over plan the week.
Now I just have to get through the last five hours of work and hope that it goes quickly. I also have to hope that I can get done all the things that need doing before I go.
