Sunday Update - Week 14

Here we are again at the beginning of another week, wrapping up the week before. 

I did some editing stuff at the beginning of the week, but then I got derailed by work stuff.  I'll probably put off working on Sleeping Ugly again until after Early Grave goes live later this month.

The work stuff... Imagine getting a box full of papers no one else has had time to work on since July of last year.  Then take that pile and create spreadsheets out of the majority of the papers in that box.  That's what I'm doing.  Some take longer than others, depending on the amount of information that has to be typed.  I should be done today.  Once this is complete, life should be easier at the office and my work will slow down to its usual trickle. 

Other than work stuff, my week got derailed by a minor bout of food poisoning.  It was partially my fault.  You see, on March 31st, I had purchased a couple bottles of salad dressing up at the local grocery store (instead of Wallyworld), trusting that the food I was buying was safe.  My trust was proven foolhardy Wednesday night.  After I was stricken, and Hubs wasn't, we talked about what I had eaten that he hadn't.  Other than ice cream, which I'd already eaten half of the container worth of, it had to be the Greek dressing I had on my salad at dinner.  I checked the sell-by date - December of 2017.  Ack.  The other dressing, which I'd eaten the day before and not gotten sick off of luckily, was dated January 2018.  Double ack.  I returned the bottles Friday, got my money back and very little satisfaction otherwise.  I won't be shopping there ever again.

I didn't read anything last week either.  I'll be starting Silver James' latest book - Montana Moon - today.

Also in the derailment category, Kira came down with another urinary tract infection, so I had to take her to the vet on Friday.  Well, actually, I had to drive her 30 miles to the vet and leave her there, then pick her up again later in the afternoon.  She's on antibiotics now and doing well. 

Friday was a busy driving day.  One trip north, three trips south for a conservative estimate of 160+ miles on my car.  Saturday was spent recuperating and working on spreadsheets.

Today is more spreadsheets, watching golf, and reading.  What's up with you?


  1. I hope you enjoy MONTANA MOON! Ugh on the driving, especially with the cold front. Yesterday was a good day to stay in. I've had work projects like that. More ugh.

    I'm on my last audio book of Jennifer Ashley's Shifters Unbound series. It's been a good read and the next book releases the end of the month.

    I'm also behind on my proposal that's due. I've been in a null creativity space. This makes me sad. I also need to ignore the "games" on bing fun. They are addicting when I'm procrastinating. I'm going to finish email, look at some LOL/cheezburger pics and then I'm going to work. No fun for me until I get the darn proposal done. Yeah. I don't believe that either. LOL

  2. Yikes to food poisoning!

    Poor Kira. And poor you for having to drive so much, especially in crummy weather.

    I'm jumping around like a flea (or would be if I had more energy):
    I finally finished the first draft of DWL!!!! Hooray! I started the easy edits, crutch words and weasel words, overused words, boring phrases... The trouble is, some of them feel more like voice than not. But I suppose 337 uses of 'even' might be a couple too many, voice or not. ;-)
