Grieving

It's a pay week so lots of errands and chores to do in the house.  About half of them are done.  Now I'm turning my attention to other tasks.  I have a lot of writing tasks to do as well as start with going through my mother's photos.  Plus I'm going to a reader event … Continue reading Grieving

Bulging To Do List

I've been working on a story almost non-stop for several months.  I like how it's developing.  I like how it changed from what I thought it was going to be.  It was flowing nicely and then life got complicated.As is usually the case, my brain can only handle so many tasks and then it rebels.  … Continue reading Bulging To Do List

Back at the Grindstone

With nine days off, you would think I got a lot accomplished.  I did when it comes to spending time with my girls but off my to-do list?  Not so much. I got 70 stars made but I need to get 30 more done.  I'd like to get them done sooner rather than later.  But … Continue reading Back at the Grindstone

Crossing Off

Last night I wrote until 2 am.  You would think I would be able to sleep in.  Nope, eyes popped open early and while I attempted to sleep some more, I only dozed.  I was still up by 7:30.  I was determined to get things done today. I tackled my desk.  I organized paperwork by … Continue reading Crossing Off

Progress!

Seven crochet patterns have been published!  I'm thrilled to have finally had time to get them out.  These have been on my todo list for quite some time. I was off work yesterday and was going to do it then but I've got upper respiratory crud on top of my gout flaring.  I slept most … Continue reading Progress!

Plan Shot To Hell

If you've read anything in my blog, you know I'm a list maker.  I make to do lists all the time and work off them to keep myself on track.  All week I've had a list I'm working off.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not one who schedules every second.  But I wrote up a … Continue reading Plan Shot To Hell

Coupons, Rebates, Errands, and a Dozen Other Things

Last night after a rough week for me, I started thinking about all the things I need to get done.  I've had two requests for possibly paid writing assignments, as well as a number of errands to run today.  My brain was going a mile a minute so I did what I always do.  I … Continue reading Coupons, Rebates, Errands, and a Dozen Other Things

Checked off the list

Yesterday, I worked on taxes for my daughter and for us.  I had a business meeting.  My late afternoon appointment didn't show up.  In the meanwhile I got three of my crochet patterns posted on Ravelry, started a new pattern, which I'm pleased with the result, and spent time with Ken.  I posted a contest … Continue reading Checked off the list

Cram It All In

The weekend is here and it is supposed to be about rest and relaxation, right?  Not this weekend.  I'm up early and helped one daughter with her taxes.  Next I have a business call in a little over an hour.  In between, I'm hoping to upload some of my patterns I just published to Ravelry … Continue reading Cram It All In
