Is it really Monday?

How are we doing this week?  Lots of fun stuff happening around here.

Daily Count Challenge!

Big Buddy!

And my favorite - BINGO!  We have two posts for this - general cards and then fandom cards.  I've chosen my card and can't wait to get started on it.

Our regular challenges are still in full force:

A to Z

Numbers

Say What

Word of the Day

Weekend Challenge is a fun one - music of animation

And amusingly enough, my Romanian word of the day was for fig.  I'm not sure that ever comes up in my English conversations but okay.  I'll take it!

Happy Monday guys and let me know how last week went and what's on your plate for this week.

(And my apologies for the lameness of this post... my template is at home.  So, I'm praying I didn't miss anything!)

I do plan on tackling some bingos...just haven't had the weekend for it.
I did get quite a bit of roleplay writing, and a bunch of editing done when the muse struck, but it doesn't feel like I was very productive. ;)

I think this week is going to be a busy one, since the boss will be going out of town next week and there's going to be a lot of stuff he wants to do before that happens. And I know we're going to be swamped with multiple office volunteers so I have to find things for them to do...rather than trying to get anything done myself :/

That, and 2 new fires over the weekend...leave me feeling scattered.

Still, I'll do my best with the day's count challenge before passing it on!

Sounds like you got a lot done, but I know what you mean. Sometimes it doesn't feel like it's enough.

Good luck with work. Those few days before the boss leaves can be hectic.

Ugh, I'm sorry about the fires. They never seem to end. :(

You can do this! You always crush the daily count.

Yay! I'm glad you found a card.

I'm thinking about a bit of writing tonight, and maybe prioritizing some WIPs as well. I had made a push on a couple of them in August, but not to a point where I have anything to actually post. So maybe a balance of some short fic to get the brain in gear, and some of the ongoing stuff.

I'm pretty hopeful I might have both the time and the mental bandwidth to actually come up with words this week! We'll see how that plays out in reality, lol.

Thanks! I've been too sidetracked with other stuff today to get to it yet but I will.

That sounds like a good plan! Good luck getting back into the groove.

I have faith in you! Now let's just hope that this crazy storm doesn't hit you too hard either!

OMG! I was supposed to do this, and K even sent me a reminder, but I completely forgot, so sorry! Thank you for filling in for me. I have been a little side-tracked lately, and while I did get out a computer last night, it was to clean it up a bit before I can ask someone to completely reformat it to give to my daughter. Not fun; the stupid thing is SO SLOW. Thank goodness I do have an alternative one these days, but I don't get it out as often as I should (that I've been putting off the clean of the old one for weeks should be enough to say something...)

And, with all that said, my aims this week are to get my hair cut and coloured so I'm looking fabulous (ha!) for Vegas, to actually post the icons I made for August Rush (I did make them during the month, but unfortunately - see above re memory - completely forgot to post them.... ulp)! And then I have rewards banners to make for August Rush, and I want to Bingo too! Plus, there's the fact I only have four squares of knitting left to go to finish the blanket I'm making! Phew... let's see how much I manage.

It's all good. I waited a bit to make sure I didn't double post after you, but I've got your back. :D I hate reformatting because I'm always worried I'm missing something I wanted to save. But hey, it's one thing down, right?

You'll outclass 95% of the people you run into, guaranteed. This town can be... interesting, to say the least.

I have faith you'll get it all done. Pace yourself!

Thank you! You are always awesome!

Oh, I know, and that's what the clean was about, to ensure I had everything copied that I wanted, but I couldn't even get THAT to work, so I ended up restarting it about a gazillion times just to delete a few programs so I could get it to actually do something... so I still have most of my copying to do. Hopefully that will be straight-forward now!

Thank you! I have been leaving my hair just to have a spruce up at the right time - my fringe is driving me to distraction right now, so it will be a relief to get it chopped!

Thanks! I'll try to pace things! ;-)

That sounds like my laptop. Poor thing is on its last legs. Hopefully the transfer goes more quickly!

I know that feeling! I'm in desperate need of a hair cut. And a color, too, if you ask my child. But I earned those greys!

Oh, crud- I had offered to post a couple of Mondays but lost track. Hoping to have a little more breathing room soon - so remind me here the next two Mondays I can chip in and i'll put them on my calendar this time!

It's all good - I honestly was worried it was MY WEEK and I missed the reminder email. But I appreciate it. :)

No worries! I'm hoping you might take my next couple if you can? They would be the 1st and 22nd of Oct, if either or both will work for you? I actually forgot it was a Sept date you said you could do, so my bad too! Although, it's probably more accurate to say, OMG! SEPTEMBER IS ALREADY HERE?

I know- it's absurd how fast this year is going. No prob- I am putting those two dates on my calendar right now.

I did get some writing done this week, but I am still feeling behind. Real life has gotten a bit wacky. Had a bit of a reality check today- a little scary, but everyone has come through it ok. Not sure I'm going to do any writing today though.

Looking forward to the weekend already.

Have a great week.

Sorry you're feeling behind, but congrats on getting some words! Ugh, I hate it when life smacks you in the face and says, "LOOK HERE." But I'm happy to hear that everyone is coming through it okay.

Take care of yourself!

I was home sick yesterday, and today feels like a Monday and Tuesday combined. UGH!
There were no words over the weekend, however I can confirm that the floor of my closet is carpeted! The house isn't cleaned after that. There is laundry, and things I have to try on, and neat stacks of things that have to neatly go back into the closet. AND THEN there is a heap on the floor of my living room that needs to be sorted donate versus trash but IS NOT going back upstairs.

And that's all I've got. Hopefully words soon!

Oh no, I'm so sorry. There is something nasty going around out there right now. I'm going on a week sick at this point and two days without a voice. I hope you're feeling better though.

Hah - I saw your post about the closet. Funny how things suddenly come out of nowhere and have to be taken care of? Good luck with getting all the rest of it handled, but I have faith!

Words will come in time. Take care of yourself first and get healthy!
