Tomorrow I’m going to have time alone in my house as Ken has to work and Vicki is going to the library for her volunteering. I’ll be setting the alarm so I can maximize the time I have alone. For the time the girls are here I’ll have to see if there might be a day or two I can give the alarm a day off again. Once the girls go back to Georgia I still have five days off but I think I’ll be making the most of the time by writing as much as possible so more likely to set the alarm. I enjoy waking up on my own much more than I do waking up to an alarm. Unfortunately, that doesn’t happen often.
Five more days! Yet another countdown for me, I have five more work days to get through and then I will have off until the 15th. This is very exciting for a number of reasons. Vacation is always good. Holiday pay is always good. The two girls coming from Georgia is wonderful. Time off is great.
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.
