Yay for wonderful imbri6
! I received LOST in the mail today. Yippee! We will be able to watch it tomorrow.
Myr and I rode in the Christmas Parade on Saturday. It was a great night for it, not too cold, not snowing or raining. The float was for our church and we got to play with the puppets. We've just started a puppetry ministry and we were showing off the puppets. The kids on the route really, really liked the puppets. It was very tiring, though. Still, fun
With the help of the talented amilyn
, I managed to figure out the plot for my Jack fic-a-thon fic. I'm afraid the length of it may be to much for me finish by the 18th, but I'm gonna give it a shot. It looks doable now that I know why everyone is acting the way they are.
I wrote 1500 words, yesterday. Go me. I wish I could have finished the scene to my satisfaction, but it reads good 'til I get to the part where it doesn't end.
Tonight I went to my folks place and helped my mom set up her iPod to play over the radio. She has about 24 hours worth of Christmas songs that she'd like to listen to over the big stereo. It worked great and now she gets to show my dad (who bought her the iPod last Christmas) how wonderful it is.
I am trying hard not to be too
jealous about the fact that my mom has an iPod and I don't.
My daughter loves to read and is doing great in school. She loves school. I mean that. She loves doing the work they assign. She is going to pur together a portfolio of drawing to see if she can be part of the accelerated art program the school offers. Only 10 people per period, so she's not sure she'll get in, but I'm proud that she's willing to try.
My desks (both here at home and at school) are a mess
. I'm moving off to a separate table in order to do some writing. I just don't want to clean
anything in order to work.
My todo list I set up is working well. I've been keeping up with my general writing tasks. Here's hoping I can get done and post something.
I've misplaced two remotes for my TV. I just cleaned the stupid room and I can't find them anywhere. It is evil
because I just cleaned and I know I had all the remotes together in one place -- then *poof* gone.
I really miss having a dog. Myr's hamster (Puff) is a nice pet and all (and actually a much better pet than I would have thought), but I miss a dog. We're thinking that we'd like to get a West highland terrier and, because every child should have puppy at some point in her life, we want to get a puppy. I will have to look into places where we can get one, but I don't have the time to do that until after Christmas.
Ok... I need to write. My goal is 2000 words today. YIKES!
