Friday Musings

I've caught a cold. Or rather, the cold has caught me! It started Wednesday evening and has steadily progressed. I really, really hate being sick, especially when I have so much stuff to do. Last night I camped in front of the t.v. and watched Hogan's Heroes and had my box of tissue in a handy spot. Went to bed halfway early and according to my husband, snored through the night. Not surprising.

The Novel

Right now, I'm looking for a way to organize my plot. I have it broken down by chapter - roughly - but there are some things I want to add and trying to find a cohesive way to do this is a challenge right now. I think the problem is that I'm at a new job and have too much going on in my brain. I've looked at writing software, but I really don't know if that's the route I want to go. I've found lots of suggestions on the Internet, but I think it's going to be a matter of me finding what works for my style.


Hubby's foot is now just fine, and the job hunt has begun. Please pray that he finds something soon!

The Weekend

Husker football is coming up again on Saturday, but I don't know if I'll even bother to watch. Last week's poor performance against USC (even though USC is the number one team in the country) was pretty heartwrenching. It's hard to watch our team do so badly when we were national champions for many years when I was in college and high school. The coaching changes over the past eight years haven't helped.

Nothing else is planned, except for plotting the novel and hopefully taking lots of naps to get over this cold!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Yes, but this is when your team most needs your support -- in the tough times. "Loyal fan" means you ride out the bad times with them as well as the good.

    Glad hubby's foot is better, and it sounds like you're making good progress on your novel.

  2. I hope you kick your cold soon, Melissa! And best of luck to hubby in his job search.

  3. It's 11:00pm and I am watching Ken Burns the War and loving it. I thought of you cause I know you are watching it also! Isn't it great? I've already got teary-eyed 3 times in an hour.

  4. Sorry you're feeling poorly. There seems to be a lot of it about - both sides of the pond.

    Good luck to hubby with his job hunting.

    And have you ever visited the organised writer ( - I think)?


I love to hear from you!

It's Time

I've had this blog for over 10 years. But I'm finding that I go to it less and less. Maybe it's the death of blogging that broug...
