Ah, so what’s new? Nothing much.
The play: Things are coming along well. We have gotten some sponsors and I am totally feeling confident that I will not have to put any of my money forward to pay the bills. In fact we are going to have extra which means the kids can get t-shirts, we can order pizza, those little things. So I’m feeling better but there are still all the running around things that take time and effort.
Writing: Ugh. I have about three things on the go, something I never used to do. But I have one that needs to be finished by the end of Dec. if I’m going to submit it as intended. It’s dragons, it’s ancient China. I’m about 75% done, just have to finish. I also have a bunch of ideas kicking around in my head. LOL None of them coming out on paper.
Reading: Wow. I am so off in my reading. I am not going to make my GR reading goal, but I’m okay with that. I’m not going to read 55 books in the next 30 days. I have been keeping up with my shorts (mostly) for Brief Encounters, but longer books I just haven’t been feeling the motivation. I spent way too much money at ARe yesterday on the rebate sale, but I simply have not bought a book in months which is highly unusual for me.
So I’ve read but not reviewed here:
Chameleon Wolf and Mating Game by Stormy Glenn & Joyee Flynn. It’s a new series which if you read my GR reviews you’ll see I’m unlikely to continue. Continuity in a big way. I should have stopped at book 1.
Lord and Master by Jules Jones. I didn’t review this at GR. It was okay, very British and I think they had a serious tea addiction.
Blind Blondie by Scarlet Blackwell. I didn’t review this one either. It was again okay. I found the style a little lyrical maybe (?) for me and lots of introspection on the one character’s part which I don’t really care for. I liked the blind guy though.
Work: Things always come in fits and starts here. I may suddenly be heading to Quebec City for a day of meetings on Dec. 12. This is one day before the dress rehearsal for the play. I should in theory be in Toronto on Dec. 14 as well, but there is no way with the play opening that night. My supervisor will likely do Toronto if I think I can do Quebec City. We were really hoping these meetings would happen in January, but you strike while the iron is hot. Just crappy timing.
So that is my life. We got snow yesterday. Ugh. I am not ready for snow and I can’t park in my garage until after the play so that means clearing the snow off the car. Boo. But it’s supposed to be warm on Sunday so maybe it will all met. We can hope. I’m so not ready for winter.
Hope everyone has a productive and stress-free week.
