Lately my life has been copyediting, sewing/purchasing things to finish the curtains with, other work-related stuff (but not enough writing. Argh!), Thanksgiving prep, and, for several nights, watching all the Harry Potter movies with Morgana and Brian and Thomasina in preparation for seeing the new one. Except I want to wait to see it with Ken, so they all went without me. Which is fine; my choice.
Except, ARGH! so many other things not getting done! I just realized, at 9:38 p.m., that I haven’t looked at my personal e-mail since this morning, other than glancing at the new messages via my phone. I haven’t worked out since Thursday, and today my trainer canceled tomorrow’s session, except I promptly filled that slot with more curtain-sewing with Morgana (after I help her clean her dining room).
Then I’m leaving by 3 p.m. to get to the airport to pick up Ken…who doesn’t arrive until 10 p.m., but I want to get there before it’s dark because even though my night vision seems to have improved somewhat, I’d still rather not take any chances. (I’m much more comfortable driving at night with a passenger now, but still not so much on my own, just in case.) But, I’m taking the laptop and I suspect that in 5 hours I can get a good chunk of stuff done.
Wednesday I have an acupuncture appointment and hopefully we’ll finish the curtains (eep) and there’s a huge list of stuff both Ken and I need to do. Thursday we’re having Thanksgiving at Morgana and Brian’s. Friday evening my sister and her family arrive, so I need to have the spaghetti sauce in the crock pot that morning. Saturday will be our family Thanksgiving (Ken’s mom is also coming) and then Sunday my sister et al leave.
At which point I have to finish the book I’m copy editing and get all of my work on one novel done so I can pass it on to my coauthor and then get Chapter 3 of another novel done so I can start submitting it, because then I’ll have a new novel to copy edit on December 1 and I have two things due December 15, but I leave for NY on December 13 to help my mom drive to NC. (I fly back to CA on December 20).
Somewhere in there, I need to catch up on my personal e-mail and work out on a regular basis. Ha. Ha. Ha.
Right, it’s 10 p.m. and I’m off to the sewing room for a bit. I think I’ll blast Tom Cochrane’s “Life is a Highway” and sing loudly.
