Almost there!

I'm now less than 5000 words from completely NaNo for my second year in a row!  I didn't write as much tonight as I usually do. It was my lowest word count of the month, but I got some done.  I have been so tired all day.  I woke up early and couldn't get back to sleep.  I finally did get back to sleep and it was time to get up.  I've been cranky and out of sorts all day!

I walked to the post office and mailed my one pen pal letter.  I had just one in my box!  At least I did have one, right?  I walked home, but with the longer walk, I got back later than usual.  I could have done my workouts, but I was really tired and sore so I decided I'd do them later.  I relaxed and then had lunch. I rested a bit after lunch and then did my workouts.  I was glad to get those done. I had almost been tempted to skip them.  I did those and had some dinner.  I fixed some coffee and sat down to do today's NaNo.  Like I said, it was a short day's write, but I got some written.  I only wrote 1164 words today.  I'm just over 45,000 though, so that is good!

I finished the first short story in Strange Weather a few nights ago but haven't started on the second one. I may do that tonight.  I"m currently listening to Full Dark, No Stars on my walk.  I finished 1922 today and started on Big Driver.  Full Dark, No Stars is excellent.  All four stories are good ones.  My favorite being 1922.

 


So chilly!

There was a freeze warning here last night and it actually did get down below freezing.  When I got up today, it was still pretty chilly. I wore an extra layer on today's walk and it came in handy!  I finished listening to The Stand on today's walk.  I'll start back on Cell tomorrow.    I am still reading on Sleeping Beauties.  It's good, but it seems to me that it's taking me a long time to finish it. I usually just breeze through his books.  I'll keep at it and finish it so I can start Strange Weather.  After that, I'll go for a search at the library and see what I can find.  Our library got rid of a LOT of books and they don't have as big of a selection as they used to. This makes me sad.  Hopefully, they will have some good book in the ebook section I can get.

I haven't gotten around to NaNo yet today, I'll do that later. It's really early yet.  I seem to write better in the evenings.  I want to go to Starbucks, but I just don't feel like driving over there today!  Maybe I'll go tomorrow or Monday.  I told a friend about the BOGOF on the holiday drinks thinking she'd suggest we go, but so far, she hasn't.  Oh well. I'd rather have a cascara latte anyway! :p

Dammit! I have a cause of the hiccups at the moment and it's really getting on my nerves.  Hopefully that will pass soon. I'm definitely not going to try to write while hiccuping! LOL  Maybe I'll get my pen pal letters written. I only have three to answer.  Hopefully when I got to the post office, I'll have a bunch more!  Mail has been so slow lately.  I have a few pals that I used to hear from regularly, and I haven't heard from either one in a long time.  I think I might send them both a little card to check in. I don't know if they just stopped writing, something happened, or they never got my last letter.  Hopefully I'll get a response! 


Stuck!

Yeah, I'm in the process of my daily NaNo writing and I'm stuck at the moment.  I am not sure where to go with what I have at the moment.  I figured I would take a break from it and go back to it after a bit.  I'm not sure how to go about what is coming next.  A major thing just happened and now I have to work on the aftermath. HELP!!!!!!! lol  I'll figure it out.  I am going to take some laundry out of the dryer and put my bed linen in and then come back to it.  I thought I'd do my blog post before doing that.  I just wanted to get away from it for a bit.  I only have 1500 words so far today. I really want to get many more.  I'm pretty sure this will make me pass the 10,000 mark, but I want to do more!

I walked earlier today.  It was overcast again but it didn't rain.  Yay!  I came home and did my workouts.  I had lunch and then drove to the post office.  I had three new letters.  I mailed off several pen pal letters earlier today while walking.  I'm actually caught up for the moment.  I was so behind.  I sat down last night and wrote letters until I had them all done.  I plan to write one day a week to keep my letters caught up.  I might even go to Starbucks to do it. :P

Speaking of Starbucks!  I went to Office Max to get some plastic business card holder sheets.  I use these to keep my Starbucks cards in.  I found  package of 25 for 6.99 so I bought them. I was happy because I was figuring I would get like ten and they'd be ten dollars. lol  

The Office Max is really close to Starbucks, and I just happened to have one of my Starbucks tumblers with me, so I went and got a cascara latte and brought it home to drink while doing NaNo. :D  I also was able to get a new card that I didn't have.  I put all my cards into the sleeves and put them in the binder.  I had been using some trading card sheets, but the card kept falling out of those.  These are much better.  I love that the pack had 25.  That is enough for 250 cards!  I have plenty for more.

I am not too messed up from the time change last night.  It affects me more in the Spring that in does in the Fall.  I am going to get my laundry taken care of and while I do that, I'll be plotting where to go with my novel.  I've gotten to the part I was looking forward to writing and I'm not sure where to go! 


Early post!

I needed to go to the post office and the library today, so I walked.  It was nice outside.  Not really too warm and it was sunny.  I got to the post office and got my letters.  I had to go to the counter because I had a postage due one. This is why I walked so I could get it while they were open.  I did that and then checked my box.  I had more letters, yay!

I left there and headed to the library.  I needed to update my card so I could use the ebook service.  I checked out three books while I was there.  Two French books and Dangerous Ground by M. William Phelps.  I already started on it. :p  The French books are for language learning.  I thought it would be nice to have some backup to Duolingo.  One is a 'workbook' of sorts and the other is French and English grammar.  They are presented side by side for comparison.

I got back in time to do my workouts, but I decided to wait until later this evening to do them.  It's a HIIT routine, so it will only take me thirty minutes.  I can do that later.  I am glad I got to the post office and the library.  I hadn't walked that far in a while, so it was a bit tiring.  I came back and sat on my bed with a cup of coffee and my book.  I'm going to finish typing this up and then ge ready to fix my lunch.  After that, I'll probably just relax for a while and then do my workouts.  I slept a lot better last night than I have for the past week, so that made my walk a bit better.  I also got to meet an adorable Lab and that helped too! :P I played Pokemon Go on the way down, but running that and my fitness app was making the battery go down quickly, so I stopped before I got to my turn around point.


Early deliveries FTW!

I actually got my Starbucks card order today!  It came a day earlier than the estimate.  That was cool.  I was happy with them.  There were some dupes in there, so I only got twenty new ones, but I'm still happy with the ones I got.

That is them.  I really like a lot of them.  They are a nice addition to my collection.  I went to Starbucks today and got a Cascara latte. :D  I also went by the post office.  I mailed four letters. Two regular pals and two potential new ones.  I received two letters and one that I could get because it's postage due and the pickup window isn't open after 3.  There was also a notice for something that was too big for my box.  I'll have to get back down there on Monday!  At this point, I'll probably have to walk.  I just hope it isn't raining!


Starbucks, denied!

So, the other night when I went to my friend's house for dinner, she said we'd go to Starbucks today.  Since I can't drive my car, I was looking forward to this.  I took a walk this evening and then stopped by her house.  I needed to get a crate and some supplies for the dogs I'm sitting this weekend.  I did that and asked about Starbucks.  She had 'too much to do.' ~_~; So, I didn't get any Starbucks.  I was not a happy camper!  I got the crate and one of pups food, but they'll bring me the other dog's food with the dogs tomorrow.  I'm not sure when they'll bring them.  They said they hoped to be on the road by lunch time.  We'll see.  I think they are leaving me keys to the van, so I can at least go to Starbucks and the post office this weekend! 

My Starbucks card order that I got off ebay finally updated the shipping today and it's on it's way.  It says it will be here Saturday.  I hope so.  I can't wait to see all the cards that I don't have.  It will be nice to have a bunch of new ones. I went and looked at her other stuff for sale and she has some other cool Starbucks things!  I'll have to keep an eye on her items.  ^_^


Whoo Boy!

First off,  it's been a long day.  I came really close to skipping my workouts today, I was feeling really icky when I would have normally done them today.  I put them off until after dinner this evening. Then, I said, I'll just skip them today.  I decided that not doing them was not what I wanted.  I just finished them. I'm so tired.  There were four arm/back workouts which weren't too bad, but there was also the #100burpeeburnout on there. YIKES!!!!!!!! Yes, I did them.  Yes, I'm tired!

I ran out to the post office earlier today, but I didn't have any pen pal letters.  I had some other mail, but no letters. :(  My pen pal letters have been pretty slow lately.  Oh well, I have two to write to and I only have one stamp.  If I write these two letters before Tuesday, I'll have to wait until then to mail them when I can buy some stamps. 

Today, I did some work on my bedroom.  I got a new bedset yesterday and the matching valences came today.  I changed some things around in my room and hung the new valences.  Everything looks nice!  I'll take some pictures tomorrow.  I have bad lighting in my house, so it's best to take pictures during the day!

Okay, I'm off to get a few more things done.  I have laundry in the dryer that needs to be taken out, folded, and put away.  I also have a few more things to get done.  I'm just proud of myself for getting my workouts done! :D 


Monday again?!

Yes, it's Monday again.  I did my usual today.  I did my workouts, watched Sailor Moon, and went to the post office.  I actually had two letters from pen pals.  Yay! I might just have to go to Starbucks on Wednesday night and write letters. We'll see.  Right now I'm going to watch more Sailor Moon S and then do some work in my bujo!


Weekend whimsy

So, today has been a regular day.  I got up and did my usual morning things.  Coffee was involved. :p  After breakfast, I started watching more Sailor Moon.  I'm now more than half way through season 1.  I just finished episode 26.  Makoto has arrived and Minako isn't too far behind!  I've been enjoying it.  I even mowed some on the lawn and did my workouts.  I watched an episode of Cold Case Files on Youtube too.  I didn't go anywhere today.  I decided after going out yesterday, I would just spend the day here today.  Plus, I had plenty to watch.  I'm so ready to get to season 2.  Everything really starts rolling then.  I just hope Hulu keeps it on until I can get through all 200 episodes!  I still have all my fansubs, but like I said, the quality on some of them is horrible.  Plus it's VHS! :P

I am going to do my French lesson on Duolingo, and then I think I'll settle in and relax a bit before bedtime.  I think I'll save watching more episodes until tomorrow.  I really need to write pen pal letters.  I planned to do that tonight, but I got so wrapped up in Sailor Moon, I sort of let it slip.  Oops!  Well, I'll try to get them written tomorrow and then get them mailed. I need to check my box for new ones.  I sent myself a post card while at the beach and I sent it to my po box and not my home address, so I should have at least that waiting for me. ^_^


Letters and more letters.

So yesterday, I wrote pen pal letters.  I didn't go to Starbucks, though.  I just wrote them at home.  I got them all ready to mail and headed for the post office to mail them.  I checked my box and I had five new letters!  I will get those written sometime this week.  I'm not sure which day, but before the weekend.  I want to be all caught up with my mail before next weekend.  Why? Beach trip.  Yes, back to Myrtle Beach for a week.  I'm so ready for this trip!
