Hurray! I finally finished my 2,000 words for November. (Yes. I do realize this is December.)
I'm really pleased with what I ended up with this time around. I told Marilyn mistressmarilyn that I could totally imagine it as a story in some women's magazine (like "Women's Day" or something). She agreed with me, so maybe I should submit it somewhere. (grin)
Anyway, the garbage and recycling is finally done. The cat boxes are cleaned and ready to be dirtied again. (smile) My 2,000 (plus) words are done. I've got several boxes of Christmas decorations upstairs so I can start my decorating in the morning. I still need to drag up the vacuum and dusters, but that's no big deal.
I did haul back the (very heavy) unit our neighbors loaned us last night to heat the family room while we waited for the new furnace. I'd hauled it here and downstairs yesterday, and is that thing a bitch to lift and carry! It was really nice of them to let us use it, however.
I'd like to also set up our tree, even if there's no time to decorate it. (It's currently down from the rafters of the garage -- but buried under a stack of things I had to move for the furnace install. (grr)
You know, I do like the fact that we can see the icon we're using in the new Update page! That's cool. And I like my new snowglobe icon I made for Christmas. Even if I haven't finished the tutorial on how to make them yet... (sigh)
It's late and we need to be up early. So I'm off for now!
Finished My 2,000 Words!
