Prevacation cranky has come over me. Next week I’m off my day job and will be able to work on anything I want to. If you’ve read my blog – you know I have a to do list. Counting the weekends, I’m going to have nine days off! I cannot wait.
I have writing and publishing goals. I have household goals. I have crochet goals. Are there more goals than I can accomplish in nine days? Probably, most definitely.
Writing has been stampeding me. I’ve written four novels with a fifth nearly done. I’ve submitted a bunch of my novels for contests. I’ve submitted a story for a book. I had a pattern accepted in a magazine, sent it off for photographing and got it back. I sold it to a friend who liked it. I’ve been editing where I can. It’s been crazy busy.
During my lunch hour and when I watch training at work, I pick up my crocheting. I’ve made pot holders and coasters. I tried a new pattern which I’m going to have to tweak because it was poorly written. However I like the idea so I’ll tweak it. I’ve fulfilled one crochet order and gotten paid.
My house is a mess. I can’t seem to keep up on it. I’ll pick up as I’m able (which isn’t much) but I have piles of laundry in my bathroom and lots of stuff sitting around in my living room. It’s starting to bug me so more effort…. unless I get too involved in writing my novel.
We painted boards for Vicki so Ken and her can build her bookshelves and a desk. The shutters we wanted to replace the plastic ones on our house went on sale with a rebate. We picked them up. Next step is to paint them and put them up. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
If things go well, I’ll have help a couple times this next week to work on more organizing, discarding, and cleaning of my house. If schedules don’t mesh, I’ll work on other things. I know my days off are going to fly by but I can’t wait to have the time to work on what I want and get stuff done and off that never ending to do list.
For next week, I’ve got specific days which I’m working with other people. Other than that I’m hoping for quiet days at home so I can do what I want, when I want, and without a lot of fussing. A lot of peace and quiet to help recharge my batteries.
