Sunday Summary and #ROW80 Check-In

It’s a gray and rainy day.  This was fabulous for sleeping in and less fabulous for taking Princess Daisy out to potty, as hubby wasn’t awake yet to hold the umbrella.  I’m working on my second cup of tea and just finished my menu planning for the week.  I’ve been awful about putting that off […]

Midweek #ROW80 Check-In

I have next to nothing to report.  Hubby and I have taken on a puppy to foster, so most of my spare time has been spent dealing with her and our dogs, making sure everybody has had enough attention and play.  We meet with the rescue organization to get her listed today.  She’s a sweet […]

Walking Down Memory Lane

Oh I guess I never got around to posting yesterday since we weren’t on an active ROW80 check in.  We’re coming down to the wire on a project at work that MUST GET OUT THE DOOR on Monday, so we’re running around like chickens from Sleepy Hollow, on top of which I’m trying to get […]

Making It Your Own

Holy MOLY this new project is making me so SO hyper.  I’ve got research books out of the library on every horizontal surface, loading my ereader, and I swear, it’s like being a kid in a candy store, dipping my hand into one jar after another, tasting a little bit of everything. See, this new […]

Midweek #ROW80 Update

So the week has started out pretty well.  I topped 700 words during my writing block the last couple of days.  Moving right along.  Consistency.  I’m building it back. I spent some time this morning in Evernote.  Susan informed me that you can actually nest tags, which is flipping awesome because otherwise when you have […]

Sick Day Plotting

Well I’m posting late today.  I’m home sick.  Well, home finally, anyway.  I woke up drowning in sinus drainage this morning and went in to the doc’s office as a walk-in at 9 this morning.  It took 3 and a half hours before I got out of there.  So then I drive across town to […]

Beware The Plot Bunnies

It’s so cute isn’t it?  All long ears and soft, soft fur.  You just wanna pick it up and love it and hug it and make it your own, right? DON’T TOUCH IT! That’s its lure!  They’re evil, EVIL I tell you! Plot bunnies! Beware.  These deceptively adorable creatures can mean death and disease for […]

Sunday Summary

Let me preface this post by saying that Daylight Savings Time is an invention of the devil.  I hate, loathe, despise and otherwise want to stab it to a bloody death with a titanium spork.  All you people who are like “but now it’s not dark when I get off work!” can suck it!  I […]

Nothing Is Set In Stone

Over the weekend, Susan, Lauralynn, and I got into a discussion about this notion that if you put it down on paper, you can’t change it.  I think this fear frequently applies to pantsers–the idea that if you outline something, then you can’t deviate from it.  I know I felt that way as a pantser […]

Sunday Summary and #ROW80 Check In

I have officially decided that my scale has a Scare Her Straight mode.  Weighing a week after Thanksgiving put me up a whopping three pounds, which sent me into Plan Healthy Food mode and led to me guzzling a couple liters of water.  A day or two later the gain was more like 1 pound, […]
