Ready for the Weekend?

I cannot wait for the weekend, simply because hubby will have three days off (gasp!), my stepson is coming from Kentucky and we haven't seen him in two years, and my mom might be coming, as well.

But more importantly, I don't have to work! I plan on relaxing quite a bit, even if it's sitting on my front porch and drinking a glass of lemonade or diving into some Ben and Jerry's low fat yogurt (Chocolate Fudge Brownie!). I'm in need of a vacation and around work, it already feels like everyone is just biding their time until the weekend.

I printed out my inspirational last night and was rather pleased with how far I am. I don't write in the "proper" format - i.e. DS, Courier font, 1 inch margins - and instead, I write in TNR, 12 pt, SS. For me, it helps me to "see" the story better. I doubt if that makes any sense, but I find that it flows much easier for me when I write in this format.

I'm still trying to work in the historical, but haven't done that for a few days. These headaches just completely throw everything off. Who wants to sit in front of a computer while your head pounds? Thankfully, the drugs are working and the headache is much dissipated today. The Tylenol with Codeine really worked last night. Praise the Lord! I was SOOOOOOOO ready to be rid of the pain.

I just remembered that there are usually a ton of great war movies on cable for Memorial Day. And darn it, I don't HAVE cable. Grrrr...it usually doesn't bother me, but I love watching old war movies. Luckily, we have a few of them on DVD - "The Longest Day" "The Great Escape" and "Where Eagles Dare" are a few that I own, but I'd like to get lots more.

Off to check out ebay...

One Day at a Time

I've always tried to live with this mentality: One day at a time. Unfortunately, when I implement it, I fail spectacularly. But for this...
