Yet Another Week

Monday, May 28th, 2012

All righty. It’s Monday. In my perfect dream world, today I will accomplish a number of things.

  • write on new short story
  • work on real-world freelance project
  • make progress on both unfinished sewing projects sitting on top of my machine
  • clean bathroom
  • sweep & mop floors
  • plan the week’s dinners
  • exercise
  • send requested paperwork to financial planner
  • print things that need printing, file things that need filing, shred things that need shredding
  • tackle the neverending mountain of laundry
  • AND be Mommy to an adorable — albeit slightly clingy — toddler (the Offspring doesn’t really count; she’s at school all day)

Is it just me, or does that list look impossible to complete?

*sigh*

Okay, well, #1 and #2 are absolutes. The rest will have to be shuffled in order of priority and crossed off as completed. Wish me luck.

So how does your day look in comparison?

Oh, Dear

I used to be good at this blogging thing, didn’t I? Jeez, it’s been almost 19 days since I wrote last.

Colour me shamefaced.

Thank you to the regulars who keep coming back to see if I’ve said anything worthwhile. (Well, okay, I don’t know about the worthwhile part. Maybe it’s just to see if I’ve said anything at all…)

So anyway, this was a holiday long weekend here in Canuckland. We spent a bit of time outdoors both prepping the veggie garden and getting ready for some major construction that’ll be taking place starting Tuesday. It’ll be many days of living with noise and destruction.

Yippee.

In the meantime, I have a WiP on the go, some potential real-world freelance work, and the usual parenting/housekeeping mishmash of tasks. Not busy, right? Noooooo.

At least our weather is finally getting nicer. Hey, I’ve gotta have *something* positive to look at, right? :P

It’s beddy-bye time now, but I’ll keep you posted on the submissions and WiPs. And I’ll try to be back before another 19 days have gone by.

Done And Done!

Party Starter is finished, gang! I emailed it off to a very nice editor who had expressed interest in looking at it, and she emailed me back to say that she hoped to give me a verdict sometime in June!

So please, everyone cross your fingers, huh? It would be really great to have a new sale.

In the meantime, it’s time to buckle down on the short story for the anthology I’ve committed to, and maybe even start something else new. I’ll keep you posted on all that transpires.

That’s all I’ve got for now, chat with you soon!
