Sunday Update - Week 26

:blink blink:  Oh.  Hi there!  Let's not dilly-dally around, eh?

Writing is temporarily on hold while I adjust to working a full-time job. So's editing and marketing. Reading and baking ain't looking too good either.  It is what it is.  

I did finish reading one book, but I forget to do a reading wrap-up yesterday.  I'll add it to next week.  And I baked a double batch of applesauce bread (2 loaves).  Part of that, I took to the office - then brought home because there aren't that many people in there and I didn't want it sitting there getting inedible.  The other loaf I took next door to the neighbors.  Yay.

Oh, and don't even ask about activity.  I spend M-F basically sitting at my desk and then I come home and sit.  I'll find my groove and work some exercise in somewhere.  Another part of the not exercising thing is the heat.  Blerg.  And every time I go outside, I get eaten alive by bugs.  I need to work on being active in the house for a while.  

The really active person this week was Hubs, who has been cleaning.  And doing yard stuff.  And feeding the critters.  Dude's a powerhouse.  And he's making me look bad.  LOL

I had my first full week of work.  I think I'm doing pretty good.  The very last thing I did on Friday, though, I screwed up.  Not anything major major, I don't think, but anyone who could help me fix it was gone for the day and I didn't want to screw it up worse by trying to fix it myself.  (Y'all know how that can go.)  So I left it with a note that I would fix it Tuesday.   In hindsight, I realize I should've left it entirely to Tuesday when I would have support of some kind and I wasn't already branfried from my first week of work, but nooooo, I had to forge ahead like the bull I am.  Derp.  Thank goodness I don't work in a china shop.  This, too, shall pass.  And hey, smart people learn from mistakes.  Right?  Right.   Doesn't mean I haven't been obsessing over it since, but that's me.  :shrug:

Yesterday, I hit Wallyworld.  What a zoo.  Loads of people, doing their 'holiday weekend' shopping.  Fortunately, the only thing the big W was out of was my preferred types of tissues.  (Cheap and plain.  No 'super soft'.  No lotion.  Lotion on tissues grosses me out. Ew.)   I picked up a cube of the soft stuff so I at least have a backup if I run out before I find the kind I like.   Got everything else on my list, which wasn't comprehensive by any means, and still dropped nearly $200.  I didn't even buy any meat.  This economy sucks.  

Of course, if the economy hadn't sucked, I wouldn't have had to find my job, which I love.  The universe works in mysterious ways.

Okay, I'd better go do something constructive today.  Have a great day and a great week, if I don't see ya.  :hugs:  How was your last week?


  1. There was a week. I sort of did stuff. And I procrastinated. A lot. I keep beating myself up but I'm a slow learner. I managed some new words. I managed to post to the blog, even though a couple were late. I kept losing track of time and days. Brain is on vacation.

    Yesterday was siren test. The AC pump in LG's truck semi-froze while we sat there idling for about 45 minutes. Air started blowing semi-warm. It thawed out--thankfully!--while we were at lunch. Mmmm. Mexican! It's really too bad the food is so good. I always overeat. No dinner last night. It was hot, I was still full from lunch, but broke down about 9 p.m. and gourged on ice cream.

    I'm avoiding WW until Tuesday. Not gonna hit it tomorrow. Not gonna hit it today--for the same reasons you gave. Holiday weekend.

    Did listen to a few books. Did watch some baseball. Should stop procrastinating and get to work. Except it's Sunday. It's hot. Tomorrow is the 4th (fireworks drive the boys nuts and they started Friday night--@$$hats.

    On that note, I shall debate whether to make more coffee and break down and take a mid-morning nap. Decisions, decisions.

    Enjoy your time off! Have a safe and sane 4th.

  2. Please tell me that previous comment went through....

  3. It's way too hot to do *anything*! You'll get back in the writing groove when inspiration hits. And it will, probably soon!

    My BIL talked Mom and my sister into going bowling today -- they both say they don't want to go, but he talked them into it. (Brother is going too, but he's thrilled to go anywhere any time.) I expect the bowling alley will be a zoo. I won't go near anything resembling a store until after the holiday.

    I got some work done this week. I think. I can't remember last week AT ALL. LOL!
