Thursday This n That

It's really hard to maintain a positive attitude when so many things suck.  But I'm still trying.

I have four pages of edit notes left to input in the Early Grave manuscript.  Once that's done, I want to do another read-through to make sure I'm saying what I want to say and describing what needs to be described.  (I'm really bad at remembering to describe stuff.  I can see it all in my head, so there's a part of me that thinks everyone else can, too.  Derp.)  I should have this done by the end of the weekend, so even if Blink of an I comes back, I'll finish this before starting that.

Got my 1099 for Amazon yesterday.  It was about what I thought it would be.

The weather has been cooperating lately, so I've been in the woods.  Hubs and I are really making progress on this project.  The view out our back windows is so much tidier, but still with that woodsy look.  I didn't take 'before' pictures, but I'll try to remember to take 'after' pictures.  You won't know the difference except by the size of the brush piles, but I'll know.

I don't think there's enough coffee on the planet to get me motivated this morning.

There's a part of me that totally forgets I'm almost 48.  That's the part encouraging me to clamber over rocks at the lake and to drag logs through the forest.  It's also the part that runs and hides afterwards when I'm tired and sore.

Speaking of being almost 48, it's my year in the Chinese year thing.  The Year of the Dog!  Ruff, ruff, ruff.  (Which makes me think of the lead-in for the song 'Been Caught Stealing' by Jane's Addiction.)  Being born in the year of the dog means that, yes, I am a bitch.  :gigglesnort:  As you can see, I'm okay with that.  Being a dog means I'm friendly and loyal, and I will bite you if you give me reason to.  ;o)

Okay, that's about enough out or me.  What about you?

One last added thought...  People shouldn't have to wait for someone in authority to tell them whether to do something or not do something, not if they've got a head on their shoulders.  You know, things like 'wear a seatbelt', 'don't burn stuff when it's dry and windy', 'don't drink and drive', 'don't steal stuff', etc.  Seems like common sense to me.


  1. Common sense? What is this alien concept of which you speak? 'zon 1099 wasn't all that inspiring either.

    Wait until you get to be my age. Ah the Medicare spam calls! We're upgrading our cable/internet/cell phone (LG's - mine will get upgraded later) and we had the option to drop our landline, which runs almost $50 a month. My comment was--10 spam calls a day to the answering machine which I can ignore or those same calls to my cells which stays right next to me at my desk. Hrm.... I'll pay the extra $50! At least for awhile.

    I'm tired. I keep waking up around 3 am. If I'm lucky, I drift back to sleep. If I'm not, my brain waits until 5:30 or 6. Then I have to get up at 6:30 or 7 and my brain never fully engages.

    So yeah. Not. Enough. Coffee. In. The. World.

    I have to go get groceries today. Fun. Okay. Words to write before I go. That's all my this for today. ;)

  2. I want to see photos! Please? Pretty please?

    Yay for Early Grave edits! You're almost there!

    Man, I wish I were 48 again. Even then I couldn't do everything I wanted, but now... I'm looking forward to 65. Isn't that ridiculous?
