Monday again.

The dog is out, fed, back in. The cat is fed and watered. The coffee is poured. I have 380 411 comments in my inbox to go through. It's Monday.

While the glow of 15 million words, and OMG WE MADE IT, is starting to wear off; and the pressure of OMG we have to do it again is starting to build with the what the hell am I going to do for rare pair; I'm still getting a contact high from the WE MADE 4 MILLION WORDS LAST MONTH! It's still so very awesome!

My house is clean, my heat is working, and my car is working (Knock on wood). Those have been the personal hurdles that I've been dealing with for the last three weeks, and it's beautiful to have them behind me now and move forward to the awesomeness that will be the rest of the year!

The Weekend challenge seems to have done exceptionally well. We had successful word wars as well. The Birthday Challenge went up, as did the 2015 Brag Book. And haldoor explained a bit about what we're up to this year as well as posting a Friending Meme. It's been busy.

I want to take a minute to thank everyone for their patience with getting the year set up. For those of you who have been with us from the start I know it seems like we're always behind setting up the year, and that's because we are. ;) We try to get a start on it, get organized, ask for volunteers, and then we hit the 'down to the wire' part of our year end and all the energy goes there. Then, suddenly, it's the new year, we're exhausted and not ready. So stick with us a bit longer, we should have most everything in place by the end of this week.

My plans for the week are to set up most of my comm posts for the week today, hire a new office assistant at work, and find a rare pair to write! It will all be awesome! What are you all up to?

I have a couple of oneshots to finish (two are for the rare pair challenge) and then I will have to do all the editing. Not my favourite part but I have been avoiding it for long enough now.

Once you get it done, though, you'll be feeling awesome!

Hell week aka inventory is behind me at work so back to a normal schedule. Will hopefully finish a few rare pair fics I started this weekend as I have a few ideas for a couple of more. Hoping to get finished with restoring the final batches of music files this month too

I intended to do so much writing this weekend...I did some but couldn't find the motivation.
I then intended to do a fair bit this morning...but dropbox is being a pain...and last night's bad news has taken over my brain...so not doing much creatively this morning either.
not sure how next weekend's going to fare, since I have a lot of driving to do sunday...and prepping to do Saturday...to be with my daughter Monday for her C-section and the arrival of baby #2. I suspect I'm going to be distracted most of this week, and busy most of next...so my intended word count for the month is probably going to be missed...
ah well...Real Life...what can we say?

Next week's distraction sounds wonderful.

*hugs* for everything else.

SO happy that your struggles are easing! You want some of mine now? :D

I'm still freaking sick and am done with it. Plus, I have an added bit of a personal burden to deal with (which I'm not dealing very well with soooo...). Ask me again later, I might actually have accomplished something by um, Wednesday.

Yay, I'm so glad things are looking up for you! :)

I had a very good writing weekend, so I'm hoping to keep up the momentum. I have two fics due this week, so those have first priority, but I'm hoping to also crank out some words here and there on a couple of my WIPs. I really want to get a lot of those finished this year, since most of them are fics I actually really like.

I do have one deadline this week for work, but I don't think it should be too bad. Hopefully. *crosses fingers*

Its Always nice when things goes better. Sometimes though it is just Like the time (sorry could not traslate the Swedish better, as it is also a thing we say in Göteborg - Gilla lläget).

Last week Went both up and down, though I'm ahead if my goal so far, so that is good. My knitting is okay, a Little - to that one person I did leg warmers to didn't seem to appricate my effort (she had ordered them of me, but not given size she wanted or an date, so I did them as I estimated), it was redemt (?) from Another which had ordered a glove (as he lost one in a pair he bought from me earlier) he wanted to pay it even if I said he didn't need to as I had the chance to come to a friend last year).
My weekend Went in the pain, due to I overexersised/did things Little too much to what I usual can handle. But I want to show me good and it was needed to do.
My Writing goes forward and I really try to post my Instagramed Project each day this year and then bring my Word Count up.
If time and I managed to sit longer I hope to make some of my started stories done.

I hope you get the knitting situation straightened out soon enough, and that you can find time for more writing. *fingers crossed*

I'm so glad things are looking up, babe! Good luck with getting a new assistant who can, you know, actually do the job!!! (and I'm still giggling about your fic. SO DAMNED GOOD!)

I have managed some good words over the last couple of nights for Rare Pairs, and I really hope to get that WIP finished for this month - it's at 8K, so here's hoping I'll get it done in about 12K or less!

The rest of this week has me looking at baking cookies for a post-wedding BBQ on Sunday, and then making sure I have a Weekend Challenge lined up for this weekend, as we travel south for a family wedding on Sat. morning and won't be back till Sun. night.

And I think that's it for now!
