>Saturday So Far…


Today, I would like to finish all the things that I didn’t get done last Saturday. I would especially like to wash my car. However, I’m sort of hesitant about all of my plans. See, I haven’t been to bed yet. Well, I’ve been to bed but I keep getting up. I’m not taking my sleepy making cough meds unless I have to. I woke up around 11:30pm coughing. I got up and played on the ‘puter for a long while. Then, around 4:30, I went back to bed. An hour later, yeah…coughing. I gave up. I took some cough meds. At least night time is the only time I’m really coughing anymore…

Honey wants to go to IHOP for breakfast this morning (when he wakes up). I think I’m going to be too sleepy. I’m going to see if I can talk him into tomorrow morning, early.

On a more positive note, Co-Teacher’s son has a banging idea for a novel and he’s set himself a goal of 2,000 words per day. So far, he’s met his goal each day. We’ve talked about our writing, our plots, etc. I got really brave and printed off what I had of the one that’s been in my head for over a year now. The trilogy that’s taking up so much head space. He actually liked it! I had been stuck but last night this morning, I just began typing and moved past the sticking point. I’m a little over 13,000 words. Wow. Now, if I can just stick to it and not give up…

Later today, I hope to have the other two awards posted and given out…

Happy Saturday Everyone!


About CuriousCat

I love to learn new things-anything from how to create a junk journal to the way light moves through space; why cats present their behinds to us to the effects of chemicals on our endocrine system. If it interests me, I can spend hours reading and learning about it.

At the second one, it began to pour, so when we got home, we had to change out of our soaked clothes. Fun, eh?13k – awesome!
