Hey, Rowers! It is 7am my time as I start to write this and something has dawned on me. Next week, waking up at 7am will be a must! My kids will be (finally) returning to school. And instead of the Hallelujah Chorus, you know what I get with this realization? Three dogs barking. Too early for this ish, ne?
Oh, good. I got them to stop. Though, it was helping with my main objective: WAKE UP!!! I need to drive to the donation drop off to get rid of a few things. Me behind the wheel in my current state would result in Live Action Mario Kart. It’s trash day, so the trash cans can replace the shells and maybe even produce banana peels.
About the past week… Lots of cleaning. My parents will be here in less than two weeks. That is, of course, if everything is going to plan. Plans don’t always work out for my side of the family, so there is speculation (especially as there has been no contact for a couple of weeks). On Hulu, I finally finished watching Bachelor’s Vegetable Store. And it was worth finishing, except… The villain deserved far worse. Speaking of things I watched… Have you seen the clip from season three of Downton Abbey?
1a. Peck at W.I.P. whenever I can.
1b. Work on an experiment.
It took some work, but I did find time last week. I also discovered something I couldn’t understand before. My husband could never write with the kids around. Even a blog post was hard for him to do. When I was a smoker, I just couldn’t understand. It wasn’t an issue for me. But with my writing still wobbly from quitting, I can understand how they kill it. Even getting in a small groove is shattered by them. And for the record, 6 months smoke free! Honestly, this whole experience makes me long for when I can go back to properly writing.
2. Visit and comment on 1D10 ROWer blogs each check-in.
Last week, on my busy Wednesday, I rolled a 2 so I was able to fit it in that day. Sunday, I rolled high and got a 7. I’ve got quite a few things to do today. So, I’m not eager to roll yet. I should be able to squeeze it in today. Just not sure when.
3. Adopt new blogging schedule.
Last Friday, I blogged some of my inspirations for my story in The Ghost IS the Machine. Monday, in a blog post I had been planning for weeks, I reveal I too have fallen in love with Gangnam Style. For the record, I think I’ll do two more K-Pop Writing Musics and then switch up to something else just as “different.”
4. Make announcement.
Now, please excuse me. A car awaits my driving. And I must avoid watching this video! This is on my “To Play” list. You woo pigeons! PIGEONS!!!! (I’m a strange little monkey.)
