- How can it be Sunday already? I have so much stuff that I didn’t get done! Between the three photo shoots we had this weekend, trying to get decorated for Christmas (and we’ve only got the OUTSIDE done–and the icicle lights went out after 5 minutes–we don’t wanna talk about it), and the family in town, I’m nowhere near where I needed to be at this time of night before a work week. Guh.
- I’m only half through my read through of DOTH. I got through with the death scene and funeral last week, and I wanted to do a read through to make sure I knew what all threads I needed to tie up with this last push through the end. I’ve got notes out the wazoo about things I need to clarify or fix, a few plot threads that just flat need to be snipped because I went a different direction, etc. I might finish by the 8th. I might not. We will see. Either way, the thing takes as long as it takes.
- I look around my house and see only work I don’t have time to do. My flower beds are looking like somewhere Sleestaks should inhabit. There’s a good two full weekends worth of work to clean them up and get them mulched. Like we were supposed to do, oh, 3 months ago. Wish we could afford to hire somebody to just come in and clean it up. I needed to bake some gluten free buns and a loaf of sandwich bread, and that didn’t happen. I needed to plan a menu for the week, which also didn’t happen.
- I did get a few things done. Daisy finally got her bath. I made up some pasta salad and roasted some filling for sweet potato burritos for lunches next week. Got laundry done and actually PUT AWAY. And got the house semi-picked up. But there just isn’t enough time for stuff.
I love that quote, “the thing takes as long as it takes.” So true! Your sweet potato burritos sound so good! Do you mind sharing the recipe?
Oh, man, I know what you mean about there not being enough time. Wouldn’t it be great if we could quit our jobs? 🙂 We get done what we can.
