Magic Monday!

awesome Monday.jpg

And here we go again! Another opportunity to have the most awesome of awesome weeks!!!

Ugh *headdesk* It might also be another opportunity to have more coffee.

Or rather, I assume. It's Friday as I write this/set this up, where I am very much looking forward to a weekend of keeping up with the words I write and finishing the 3rd book in a series that I stated last week and starting on the 4th. As I speak I'm on schedule with my words. Which I am excited about as I haven't participated in Big Buddy in a while. However I am only on schedule, not a single word ahead, and that's only as of Friday, so... WORDS!!!

I'm also on schedule to turn 50 in a couple of months and the plans for that are going swimmingly!

So what are you all up to? Both long and short term?

Glad to hear you are on schedule word wise. I'm only slightly behind. I started an original fiction, which is going to be fun.

Yay for birthday plans going swimmingly.

Now, I'm off to continue the round robin I started with Amy.
Aug. 13th, 2018 01:00 pm (UTC)
WOOHOO For round robin!!! They can be such fun. AND WOOHOO for original fic!!!

I did not get any words done over the weekend, but I am hopeful for getting Sat, Sun, and Mon words today so *fingers crossed*

I am so dumb... hit reply on the wrong darn post. *headdesk*

I just saw another update land in my inbox. *rubs hands together*
Aug. 13th, 2018 05:16 pm (UTC)
I'm very excited for this! Wherever you comment!!!
Aug. 13th, 2018 05:37 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Not sure either of us thought it was going to get this out of hand. But... it's been a riot.
Aug. 13th, 2018 05:56 pm (UTC)
Enjoyable words is the best!
Aug. 13th, 2018 06:08 pm (UTC)
Indeed they are! More fun than the book reviews I'm working on. Although, three of them are for cookbooks, so that's not boring. :D

After a fire scare last night (yes another one, this time 2 houses in town :/ ) I struggled through a night sleep filled with dreams of fire and ghosts...
But hey, I hit the 30k mark last night, which I think is the goal I set for the month...so I'm well ahead of the game.
I come to work early intending to work on some NaNo notes, only to find I left the notes at home *sigh*
I guess this explains how Monday is going to go for me.
And in case I forget to later (or miss it) happy early birthday :)
Aug. 13th, 2018 01:02 pm (UTC)
My heart bleeds for you all with all the fire. I would send you our flood waters if I could... Damn.

My feverent wish is that they are ended quickly, and safely. I also hope you get some rest.

*hugs* for the notes, and yay for the 30k!

OH! AND! H's birthday is tomorrow. Today to her by now, but tomorrow for us. FYI

So what are you all up to? Both long and short term?

Working on graphics for August Rush. I'm currently at 21 icons and banners, I think? I don't remember but I have 5 to 10 more to work on today. I'm also doing background on a fanfic series I want to do. I mentioned it a while ago in another post here. So I'll spare the rambling details about that LOL

There are 12 days until my church's Family Camp up in the mountains and I'm really excited about it.

I'm so excited that yesterday, while at Walmart, I picked up some small travel-size stuff that I needed and when I got home I packed my bag. LOL With the exception of some shorts I need to wash and shoes I need to buy I'm ready to go.

The lady I do home care for will also be going with her sister to Family Camp, so I packed her bag as well.

So, our packed bags are going to sit in the closet for the next 11 days. Thank goodness there's a Harry Potter marathon and NCIS marathon to help the days go by faster.

After camp I start the next semester at the local community college. I'll be taking 2 online classes and likely 2 on campus classes. I'm moving forward towards my degree, but I still feel like I'm stagnant about it. I'm taking 3 or 4 classes a semester and should be on track to transfer to the university fall of next year, but I still don't feel like I'm making much progress for some reason.

Also, I turn 36 in 27 days. My niece wants to do something with me and I'm all for that but she doesn't seem to understand that the lady that I care for requires pretty much 24/7 care and I can't leave her alone for 4 to 6 hours to go to a Pirate Adventure dinner and Show like I said I wanted to do. Kim, the lady I care for, could ask her sister to stay with her for that time that I would be spending with my niece but there's still transportation money that I would have to get together and I just don't have that.

And...I didn't mean to write a novel of a comment LOL

It sounds like you have all kinds of great things coming up! WOOHOO

And believe me, I've been throwing stuff in my suitcase for a couple of months now and I'm not going for another 8 weeks.

Very exciting things coming your way!
Aug. 13th, 2018 02:58 pm (UTC)
I'm already mentally packed for a trip to Hawaii that is supposed to happen in 4 years but might not happen at all.
Aug. 13th, 2018 05:05 pm (UTC)
That flash challenge is making me cackle.


Is it wrong of me to say that I'm excited for your birthday??? :D
Aug. 13th, 2018 05:15 pm (UTC)
I wrote this while the TV was on for lunch at work and there is a HORRIBLE infomercial that comes on at least twice during lunch. If something good can come from it then it's worth listening to.


I did just write more words of the m7 fic and I made me laugh so... And that gets me current. I did finish the knitting project, started the next one. I did not finish Rico, I'm not loving it. But now I'm invested so I'll have to read all the others. Good news is that I should be done this one today. And the Spanish is coming along. I'm a total butcher, but I'm comprehending!

It's not wrong! IT'S MORE AWESOMER!!!!
Aug. 13th, 2018 05:37 pm (UTC)
OH NO! I know how some of those can be so I feel for you. I'll have to figure something out now. :)


Score! I'm happy for you - I want to know what's going to happen now. Hahaha. I finished Reese on Saturday and I loved it! Sorry Rico isn't holding your attention though.

As far as the Spanish goes, you'll figure it out in time. One of my bosses has lived here - SURROUNDED BY SPANISH SPEAKING PEOPLE - all his life and still mangles some of the most basic Spanish words. I do not know how our Hispanic workers keep from laughing in his face.

HAH! I need a vacation and your birthday is going to be as close as I get until I locate a slightly-used kidney!
Aug. 13th, 2018 06:40 pm (UTC)
AT BEST, my Spanish might one day sound like butchered Puerto Rican Spanish. BUT my goal is to read, so I'm cool with it.

Jed is next, and the bits they've been teasing I'm hoping that the plot is different enough from the others that Sullivan and Rico have not been. *fingers are crossed* I'm sure I will keep you clued in. And I hope that you enjoy Sullivan, as I very much liked Eden.

We will have a great time, and I will happily let you share my vaca until that pre-owned kidney comes in!
Aug. 13th, 2018 07:20 pm (UTC)
Hey, as long as it works for what you need, right?

That can be a problem with some of these series. It's like they keep the plot and switch out the characters. Although, I'm anxious to read Nate because of Jo. :D I'm sure I'll love Sullivan when I get to it. I remembered you gushing over how much you loved Eden, so that intrigues me.

Thanks. :D

Eek. I'm at less than 50% of my monthly goal. Got to step up the words.

The weekend was spent celebrating my 49th birthday (with everyone rubbing it in that I was entering my 50th year). It's been a nice time. I have today and Tuesday off of work to continue the celebration which is wonderful.

Enjoy your reading and have a great week!
Aug. 13th, 2018 08:10 pm (UTC)
Just under 50 is perfect! Both age and words!

Happy Birthday! And two additional days off is WONDERFUL! ENJOY!
Aug. 14th, 2018 10:35 pm (UTC)
Hi, I literally haven't written anything is years! But I wrote something!

Aug. 15th, 2018 04:43 pm (UTC)
YOU DID AWESOME!!!! That was great! Very sweet.
Aug. 16th, 2018 09:59 pm (UTC)
I don't know the fandom, but I had good fun imagining the scene. Well done! ;-)
Aug. 16th, 2018 10:02 pm (UTC)
Blerghhh, here it is Friday and I have not even managed to get onto this post until today. Jeez.

So I have done NOTHING fandom-ish this week, though I've been meaning to get into August Rush. I really want to icon my GoT screencaps. I NEED TO DO IT, STAT!

On the plus side, I've managed to knit more on the blanket I'm making, and I saw Mamma Mia 2 with my daughters & my cousin's wife the other night - loved it!

This weekend, I'm meeting my best friend for brunch on Sunday, and Saturday needs to have some time for iconing, methinks. I SHALL MAKE IT HAPPEN!
Aug. 17th, 2018 06:13 pm (UTC)
I hear that! I haven't done words until today and that was just 200 words.

Aug. 18th, 2018 03:25 am (UTC)
200 is 200!

I did graphic! I just finished! Yeeha! I'll save them to post at the end of AR though as I want to put them all together. So happy to have got them done though!!!
