The semester is done. I think I’ll end up with one A and one B. If I’m lucky the B might be an A-. I’m glad it is done and I learned nothing from my science class that I will use or remember and some good things from my Prose Stylistics which I’ll use when I’m editing.
Yesterday was a busy day with errands and running around. Ken helped Dominic unload from his move up from Indiana and I hung out. I wrote in my journal for the first time in forever – that felt really good. I have to type up a poem I wrote while I was waiting.
One of my essays was published in Circle Magazine. They contacted me for some they could use so I sent them in a few. It was a one page essay that I wrote a while ago.
I have to make a list of deadlines I don’t want to miss for writing. There is a grant I want to write for and a few competitions I want to enter. There is also a few publications I want to look at their guidelines. Yup – there is definitely a to-do list for the summer. It should keep me busy and out of trouble…well at least busy.
Vicki has made a very successful start to her job. She is busy from the moment she steps in the door until she leaves. She is even taking work home with her already.
Now that Ken and I are on our own, we have a few things to get done – like rearranging things in the house, the basement fixed and so on. It is nice to settle into a schedule with him and getting used to there being no buffer between us.
I’m getting shots in my knees for the next two weeks. I started last week and it was interesting to say the least. I nearly passed out on the nurses – I guess I should actually drink water before I go to these appointments. Fortunately, I’ve noticed a decrease in pain this week for my knees and I’m hoping the other two shots will keep that going in the right direction.
The next couple of weekends will be busy with a visit to Vicki – Gin and Stephanie are coming up from Georgia so they can see her new place – and helping Kelly and Dominic move to their new house. I’m excited for both. We haven’t seen the girls in a while and it will be a quick visit but we aren’t going to do a lot of running around but just hang out at Vicki’s apartment and be together. Kelly and Dominic will be moving into the next stage for them. While I’ll miss them living near us, I’m happy for them to be on the same page and moving forward.
After that I’m hoping for a slower pace so my weekends will be less hectic and more about writing and relaxing…
