I’m so glad Friday is upon us. This has been a hectic, busy week, and I’ve gotten a bit behind in blogging about life in general.
I’ve been working on the garden tour. We’ve had it full. Then lost one. Then got a new one. Then lost one. I am so weary of doing these sorts of things. It’s exhausting and stressful. On top of that, I’ve got some unexpected things looming to take care of.
When I had lunch with Trish this week we were talking about things and she used the perfect phrase for it. She said she didn’t have anything on the horizon she was dreading. I realized that was the word for it – dread. There are things I’m dreading. It’s just not a good way to live one’s life. I suppose people do it all the time, but it makes no sense to me.
I’ve been spending more time on twitter these days. I’m eager for more folks I know to get on there. I’ve had an account for a long time but haven’t used it much until recently. It’s very interesting. I’m also fond of friendfeed, but even fewer people I know are on it.
Mark is down for the Antique Truck show. I got to see him at lunch and dinner today. He’s working for his XM show, so I haven’t seen him except in passing. He’s not staying with me this time. Since he’s working his company got him a hotel room.
I’m just trying to push through the next month and get everything done I need to get done. Then I will be able to rest a bit, I hope, and work more on the novel.
My plan is to work very hard tomorrow and get some things out the door so I can have this three day weekend off. I’m hoping. Hoping, hoping, hoping.
Other good news today – I got a good report at the dentist. I always love to hear I have no cavities.
I have almost all of my plants in the ground. They were saying we might get bad weather tonight but I’m hoping it’s not big hail. I don’t want all the pretty white roses on the bush in front torn up, nor do I want the plants I just got in the ground beaten to a pulp.
Yesterday I got a call about doing some voice work that sounds like it will be a fun experience if they hire me. I love doing voice work so that’s a bonus. We’ll see what happens. I also got a new writing “job” that I’ll be saying more about as soon as it’s ready for public consumption. More on that soon.
