Wow, I just realized a whole week went by. WTF? How can it be Sunday again? Needless to say, the past week was a blur. I know it rained a lot. I know I wrote a lot. The rest? A blur.
Anyway, onward to the rehash...
I wrote 14663 words last week, bringing my month total to 44465, which means I reached my goal of 44K in the month of May. :muppetflail: It also brings Djinn3 up to a total count of 53137. I expect another 10-15 words should wrap this first draft up. (I always flesh out during edits, so don't worry about the low total.) The new goal is to have that done by mid-June. Easy peasy. :crosses fingers:
In reading news, I finished my 50th book of the year. That puts me at 50% of my goal for the year a month early. I thought about upping the goal, but who knows what the summer will bring. :shrug: I did read three of those books in the past week, and I'm about 30% through another one. Not sure if I'll finish this one, though. It's interesting enough, but it's dragging in a major way.
Like I said, it rained a lot last week. I think we got a couple inches total. Which left me inside reading and writing, but not much else. The next home project finally has all its supplies, but we can't start that until we get a dry day or two. Laying out a 20'x100' piece of plastic sheeting on wet grass is not a good idea - especially when the purpose of said sheeting is to prevent moisture in the crawl space.
Since the project had to be put on hold, we both felt un-gimpy enough to go for a walk yesterday. First time walking the loop* in over a month. And I didn't die. So I got that going for me.
In other news, Tickmageddon was only partially effective. We're still getting ticks - just fewer of them. Unfortunately, as the ticks die, the poison ivy is thriving. (Not causal, just coincidental.)
How did things go in your world last week?
*The loop is a 1.25 mile walk around the hill that makes up our neighborhood. It's like this... down, up, up up up, upup, flat, doowwnn, flat, down down, flat, down, flat, doown, up up up up, uuuuup. That last up is a killer but it's the only way to get home. :shrug: (Not that there haven't been times I thought about waiting at the bottom while Hubs gets the car. LOL)
