EEP - It's Monday!

Hey!  It's another manic Monday, so to speak!  I didn't see a Monday post so smack me if I missed it, k?

How did the weekend treat you?  Hopefully you had some downtime and managed some words or pretty pictures.  Me, well, I wound up sicker than all get out all weekend, which was not much fun.  On the happier side, my kid went and did her orientation for her pre-nursing degree.  One step closer to her being an official college student.  I'm happy and I'm sad.  But I'm thrilled for her no matter what the mommy-feelings are telling me. 

And... since I'm doing this on the fly, forgive my sloppiness in getting you the weekly prompt roundup!

Word of the Day (tag list) - Say What Friday - A New World (Weekend Challenge)  - 449! - W

Big Buddy pals - shout out with how you're doing!  I don't have numbers for you but let us know how you're rocking it anyway. 

Don't forget June's bingo month!  You can find the cards here and there are some amazing ones! 

Happy Monday and here's to a most excellent week!

Had a good, productive word weekend...some bingos done, some editing done, over 1/2 way through my intended monthly count...so its all good.
I should be prepping for the next NaNocamp...I know I set up a project but don't remember which it was. So many going on at once I'm a bit lost lol.

I had a good weekend in spite of Sunday being a work day due to a special event. Sometimes that can make for what feels like a really long week, but for some reason it's not bothering me a bit. I got stuff done at home, too, and even 400+ worth of words, woooot! Bingo will be one focus this week- fingers crossed.

Wonderful! I'm sorry you had to work, but happy to hear it didn't drag you down like it can. Congrats on the words as well! I need to finish this last darn chapter of a crossover I've been working on then I'm on to my bingo card! Already have notes for each prompt. :D

Was feeling under the weather this weekend so didn’t even try word wars

But I managed a couple of scenes for WIPBigBang - hoping to have first draft finished by the weekend

I was both saddened and relieved when I didn't see a post. Hope you're feeling better!

Congrats on getting words in even though you weren't 100%!

*sigh* No you didn't see one. I've been so in my brain with the fic that I couldn't wrap my head around this yet. THANK YOU!!!

I had a lovely weekend, gorgeous weather, knitting day, hanging out with the dogs and my sister. Sorry about your blergh. Sorry about the mom-feelings, but YAY COLLEGE!!!!


HAPPY MONDAY TO YOU!

It's all good! I'm just sorry it took so long to realize I didn't have a notif in my inbox. But hooray for the fic - it's coming along so well, too!

Hooray for a great weekend though! I'm happy to hear you're finally getting some decent weather up your way. And don't be sorry for the mom-feelings, they're good things, even when they make me sad. :D Yeah... seeing her official school ID was a shock. But she's doing what kids are meant to do, right? (I'd probably feel differently if she wasn't going to school 10 minutes from our house hahaha...)

RIGHT BACK ATCHA!

The countries challenge has given me an excuse to revisit my first ever OTP, Lost's Sayid/Desmond - although my initial intention was to use it for Scotland, Iraq's creeping in a lot more. But hey, that fulfils the challenge to try and do a country we don't know - I know Scotland well, but not Iraq at all.

Awesome that the challenge inspired you! I'm jealous - I'd love to visit Scotland some day! Iraq, not so much - I'm already stranded in a desert of sorts. Hahaha.

Good luck with the fic!

I AM OVER MY MONTHLY WORD GOAL!!!!!!

(sorry for yelling, but am freaking happy that I finally managed words.)

I'm currently sitting at 1,115 words. Woot!!!

I also have a new pairing in the Marvel Universe.

Otherwise, work still sucks, the puppies are doing good and the evil muse is happily chomping away at his stack of carrots.

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE


And new Marvel pairing?!?! I'm excited too!

The new pairing is Tony Stark/Stephen Strange aka IronStrange.

Should be interesting since they are the kings of snark.

YOU ARE SO FRICKEN AWESOME I CAN'T EVEN EVEN!

(and yell all you want - my boss and co-worker are too lazy to get out of their chairs to talk to each other so they yell cross-office. No one will even notice)

That is so wonderful, I am really happy for you!

Hah - I saw that. :) Makes me think I need to watch Dr. Strange now that it's on Amazon (or Netflix? I have no idea).

Ugh, I think work always sucks, honestly. Even when you have a good job with people you mostly like, it still sucks. Hooray for happy and healthy puppies and a well-fed bunny. :D

I know. I amazed myself.

Doctor Strange is a must see, because Benedict was the perfect choice for Strange.

Work sucks today because management wants the impossible once again.

That's awesome. :D

I'm going to have to watch it now. I'm so far behind with these movies. The new Thor is on Netflix now, too. *sigh*

If it's any consolation, I just posted the last chapter of the crossover I was working on. But I feel ya. Management here is always being impossible, but they're all related so there's not much I can do. Hah.

It's Tuesday here already and Monday was pretty ok. Then the weather turned to crap and I woke up with a headache this morning - blerghhhh! I decided to stay home and am all snuggly warm in my winter bed with two cats to keep me company.


Not much writing going on, as has been the way for a while for me now, but I did manage to write up an idea for an original SF story the other day,  so that's 150 words more than I've written in months!


I'm still trying to motivate myself to get some more icons made too, so will work on both that and hopefully something small in the bingo arena too.


Good luck on the mom-feeling score! Obviously it's both happy and sad, but she is heading out there into the world and will no doubt have a fantastic time! Like yours, my girls have both done (1 done, 1 halfway thru) their study in the same city we live in, and that does make things a little easier in some ways!

Well HAPPY TUESDAY TO YOU THEN! Sorry you're not feeling great, but I can't blame you for taking a day.

Hey - that's a start! Here's hoping it turns into something for you.

Same here, but I don't even know where to start. Good luck with whatever you choose to work on!

Thanks. And yes, it definitely helps to know she'll still be living at home. She can learn to be an adult with the safety net still in place. Congrats to your kid that's made it through!

I'm at 1323 with the word count which is probably about 10 words or so off from where I should have been as of yesterday. Got a lot of writing and creative things ahead of me. I also made a big graphic for the NHL Draft which is a little busy, but I like it.

Sad to see that NHL hockey has ended for the year (they're still playing in Australia!). I was rooting for the Caps because my nephew's really into them and I don't like him being moody. I wouldn't have minded it being another game or two though.

This week I'm working, writing, doing prep for the road trip to Dallas, and attending a family reunion with my ultra-conservative side of the family which I am following immediately with Pride festivities.

I hope you are feeling better and that you have a great week!

Awesome! And ten words is nothing, right? Glad to hear you're feeling inspired.

Hahaha! Your poor nephew, I can see why you'd root for the Caps. I'm in Vegas so well, you know where my loyalties are. I would have loved another game, too. Hated that the VGK went down like they did. But! For their first year, I mean, you can't complain.

I was going to say enjoy Dallas until I got to the end of that sentence. A good way to cleanse yourself of the ultra conservative is with Pride Day festivities. I hope yo have a blast.

Thanks! I've been mostly upright all day, so I'm calling it good. :)

LOL. I've never been to Dallas except to change planes in one of the airports, so this will be something. We're not really seeing a whole lot while we're there since we're going to the NHL draft and that's going to take up the better part of two days. I'm looking forward to visiting a new arena even if it's during the off-season.

I drove THROUGH Dallas once on my way to Plano to meet an author friend of mine, but that's it. Hahaha. The draft sounds like a lot of fun though, I hope you enjoy it!
