Thursday This n That

I sent Hubs off to fish by himself on Tuesday.  He needed to get out of the house for a while, and I had a boatload of stuff that needed doing.  He left and I cranked up the jams while I worked.  It was a good afternoon for all.

This is one of those weeks where I have everything to do and I'm doing my damnedest to get it all done.  But as of writing this post last night, I still have about 100 pages to go through on SU and THEN I have to address the few things in the edit letter and THEN I have to scan for crutch words and itinerant typos one last time.  And I still have to format it.  So, while I might still make the 18th, don't hold your breath.

Of the 'everything to do', I did get all the work for pay-job done by Wednesday afternoon.  Go, me.

Yeah, I rewrote the beginning of SU, but my editor approved most of it with only a few tweaks.  Expect a snippet of that tomorrow on Outside the Box.

I managed to walk a mile yesterday without wanting to whimper, so the back thing's mostly gone. 

God, I want pie.  So bad.  Maybe when I hit Wallyworld tomorrow, I'll break down and buy me some.  That would be awesome.  Maybe I can get away with one of those mini-pies.  Hmmm.

Okay, that's it for me.  Your turn.


  1. PIE! Hush up! I still have ice cream left. Glad the work stuffs are gettin' done.

    Me? Revisions are hell this go-round. I'm not even through chapter 1 and every time I oipen the document, I want to run away. I know it has to be done. I'm doing it. The character is changing. I hope it's for the better.

    It rained. A lot. No flooding *right* here, but not far from us. More rain this weekend. At least the temps are down (if humid) and our electricity is at a lower rate.

    And...that's about it for me. Revision hell. So much fun. *huge sigh* And break time is over.

    Go fishing.

  2. Hoping the editing is finished quickly and painlessly. I can't wait to read the snippet!

    Pie. Le sigh. I had unsweetened pineapple chunks in cottage cheese for dinner. Does that count? It's as close as I'm going to get. Unless I find a gluten-free & potato-free pie dough...

    It rained here, too. Hurray!
