Another day at work...

Wah! I didn't get to write again today. Hope to in a few minutes, though. Work was super busy. Lots of catching up to do after being off for so many consecutive days. Hopefully things will calm down in a few days because I want to get home before bedtime.

Okay, review of what I got done while off...

1.) Stripped the zillion or two layers of paint off my stairs & am prepping the wood for staining.

2.) Cleaned walls & trim stairwell then painted walls & trim

3.) Cleaned all doors & trim in my upstairs & painted all

4.) Cleaned my dining room walls & trim then painted both

5.) Cleaned my living room walls & trim then painted both

6.) Cleaned out upstairs hall closet.

7.) Stripped paper off my downstairs hall wall. (still have to do minor wall repairs then paint)

8.) wrote new Blaze proposal

9.) wrote new single title proposal (still working on synopsis, though)

10.) spent lots of time with the kiddos & got them started back to school with all supplies & necessary new clothes.

11.) Cleaned my office (okay, so only partially, but you can see floor again...)

12.) Signed up to walk 60 miles in 3 days for the 3 Day Breast Cancer walk in Atlanta. (Yes, you can help by going to www.janicelynn.net & following the link at the top of my website.)

13.) Wrote an article for the Wet Noodle Posse e-zine (on Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome--the new issue comes out on Sept 1--be sure to check it out at www.wetnoodleposse.com )

14.) Campaigned for the new Student Body President at Westwood Jr. High School (who told me tonight that he also got President of the Pep club. Woo hoo!! :)

15.) Went for a motorcycle ride with hubby on Friday. Great weather & we just rode the back roads. Very cool.

16.) Spent time with my parents & grandparents & in-laws.

17.) Booksigning & conference in Atlanta. :)

18.) Discovered that TWO of my kids are getting braces this month & that I could have bought a car for what that's going to cost me.

19.) Looked for new living room furniture, but haven't bought any yet. (See #18 for reason)

20.) Read several books off my TBR pile.

21.) Exercised routinely, increasing my time in prep for the 60 mile walk.

Okay, so I didn't get done half what I'd meant to, but I did cram a lot in & I'm sure I'm forgetting lots of stuff, too. All in all though, it was a much needed break. Maybe I can finish up some of these other jobs this weekend. But the main thing I'm doing for the rest of this week (besides working) is polishing my new single title proposal so it can be sent out soon. I LOVE this story!!!! :)

Wow, you got a lot done! Don't forget, you were gone to conference for a week in there, too.

Bummer on the braces. My oldest just got hers, and it looks like my next one's going to need them too--but probably not for another few years. I hope.

I can't wait to hear about this ST proposal you're working on. Good luck on that and the Blaze.

And...next time you have a month off work, you wanna come and visit Michigan? I've got a bunch of walls that need to be painted....

tee hee. I'll keep that in mind the next time I have a month off work. :)
