So much to say, so little sleep!

Yup, still running on fumes. I hope to get some sleep tonight. I have some things in the works for me to move (I hope!). I took another load to the storage unit today and just about killed myself. My poor back. Ah! But another load out of the house. I just finished up today's NaNo writing. I had done most of it earlier and then had to leave to go out, so I came home and wrote the rest of the words to meet my goal. I've been doing no less than 2000 words a day every day through it all and I wasn't going to stop today! Go me!  Now, if I can just get some sleep tonight, please!

A bit of rest, not much.

I went to bed early last night, but it was hot in my room. I got up and turned on the fan since I'd long since taken my air conditioner out of the window. It didn't help much. It was frustrating when I really needed sleep as I'm stressed and I wanted to sleep and try to not be stressed!  When I woke up (a million times) and finally got up this morning, it was cool in my room. Ugh. I was hot under the covers, but it was cool in my room. So frustrating! At least it's not supposed to get really warm today, hopefully, my room will be cool enough to sleep tonight. I really need some sleep.  I have my writing done, but I still have my other Sunday chores to do. Boo!

Friday thrift makes me tired!

My friend and I went on the Greensboro thrift trip today because he was off for the holiday. We ate a place we found on a previous trip. They were sooooooooo slooooooow. We finally got our food, ate, and then got to thrift. We went to all the Goodwill stores over there. I got a good amount of things. I found seasons 2-6 of LOST. I have the first season and I think a few more, but I couldn't remember when I was in there. They were $4 each, so I just got them. I also found some Starbucks tumblers (older ones) and a few nice reusable cold cups. One with the original price tag on it AND it still has the Starbucks branded straw. Nice! I also got some odds and ends, a few books, a little pouch just for the cute Eiffel Tower charm on it, and a cool vintage board game called Aggravation It has marbles! I love old board games and especially ones that I don't have or have never seen before! I got a cool Monopoly-themed mug in one Goodwill. I collect Monopoly sets and I also collect Monopoly-themed merchandise when I find it. It was a decent trip, but I spent too much! LOL 

Oh and YES I did write today! I wrote the majority of my word count while I was waiting for him to get ready this morning and wrote the rest when I got home to get my word count to where I wanted it for the day. I've been doing a bit over 2000 words each day for NaNo and I wanted to keep the momentum going. I'm glad I wrote before because I'm so tired after the trip, my writing would have been pretty bleah tonight. I'm posting this and then I'm going to relax and listen to the shortwave!

Here are all my finds:



Mmm pizza!

My friend and I went out of town to one of our favorite restaurants. They have great pizza. I got a small one while in the restaurant. Their small is pretty much a bit larger than a personal pizza so easy to eat in one go.  He got baked spaghetti which also looked great.  He even went back and ordered us both a small pizza to go. :) Now I have lunch and dinner tomorrow. Yay! We also went to the Goodwill there. I got a few small things there. :)

Before we went, I got my daily NaNoWriMo writing done. I am at 18,686 words! :) Tomorrow I am participating in the weekly write-in, so that will be fun. I like doing those. It's fun to participate in a virtual write-in!

Meh Monday!

Ha ha, how is that for a title? So, it's Monday. I was supposed to go to the recycling center today and get that done, but I haven't left the house. Oops. I did realize that I was going out tomorrow to vote, so I figured why not just wait and go do that and recycle? I wrote for NaNo, and that is going well. It's a slow build right now, but it's the way I think it should go.  

If you are wondering about the food incident yesterday, I'll tell you! I always get a pizza when I hit 10,000 words during NaNoWriMo. I decided this year to change it up and order myself some delicious Chinese. So, I get on Grubhub and make an order. Over an HOUR after I placed the order there was still no driver! I had to contact GrubHub.  I got two different credits for future orders. I do appreciate that, but I was still upset as I still didn't have a driver. They must have alerted one because as I chatted with them, they said one was assigned to me. It wasn't showing that on my end!  Soon after, one did show up that they were near the restaurant and they brought the food. It took waaaay too long, but I did eventually get my food. So frustrating!  

The most frustrating thing is, I always order well in advance in case there are delays, but I didn't yesterday! Ugh! The food was good and mostly still warm. It threw my day off and I didn't get a few things done I had planned. At least the food was tasty!

Saturday status...

I am glad I posted early yesterday because I wouldn't have had time last night! Why? Well, my friend and I did our Friday thrift trip, but with a twist! At the second to last Goodwill, we looked to see if there was Goodwill in the city we weren't far from. There was, so we decided to go. We found a new one. Well, new to us. We headed from there to the last Goodwill we go to on this trip and drove past another. We turned back and went to that one too. So, we went to five Goodwill stores on this trip.  The 'new' stores were a nice change. I might do a list of items tomorrow. For now, I'm going to relax a bit. I also want to tune in a bit early on the Shortwave as there are more broadcasts to find on Saturday.

Did I write today for NaNoWriMo? Yes, indeed! I went over the 10,000 mark today, too! You know what that means, I treat myself to a pizza. It won't be tonight, but I will do it in the next few days. I thought about going out tonight to Starbucks, but I just don't feel like leaving the house. 

Three and Four done, too!

Sorry about yesterday. My friend had a package delivered here yesterday. He came by with food for both of us. We ate and he ended up staying for several hours. After he left, I had to get ready for a NaNoWriMo virtual write-in. I did that and got my day's writing done. I only added a couple of words after that.  Then, I got caught up in watching a Livestream from Hawaii. After that, I listened to the Shortwave. By that time, it was well after eleven. I figured today I would go ahead and blog since I'm finished with today's writing. I'm at 8190 words on day four! :D

Day Two Done

I just finished writing for today's NaNoWriMo and it's much better than day one! The two main characters had their first conversation and they are getting along great. It's going to be fun to develop them more as I go along.  I need to add my word count to the NaNo site and then I might run to the grocery store. I've been putting off doing forever now. I am out of a lot of things. I also would like to see if they have any leftover Halloween candy for me to snatch up at a discount! lol

Day One done!

I have completed the first day of NaNoWriMo! I wrote earlier today and then realized that part of its sucked. I knew there was going to be a kick off write-in / meet up tonight with the group I do the weekly write. Ins with during NaNo. Sadly, I found out that it was on Zoom and not Facebook. I don’t have Zoom and don’t want it, so I will just wait and go to the first write in on Thursday night. :). By the way, I cut a huge portion of today’s writing, edited, rewrote a part and ended up with 21 more words than my first total. I also found some cute digital stickers on Etsy that are NaNoWriMo inspired. 

I totally forgot that I always go to Starbucks on the first. Guess who didn’t get any Starbucks today? D’oh!!!!!!!

Friday follies

I forgot to post yesterday. Sorry about that. It was a pretty boring day, so there wasn't much to post about. Today isn't much different. lol I am currently waiting on an Amazon package. The truck is five stops away. As soon as I get that, I'm going to move from my desk to my bed and relax a bit. I've already written, and I have leftovers for dinner, so I'm good! Come on Amazon guy!

As I wrote that, guess who just pulled up? :D

Sunday, sunday...

I am tired. I just finished the majority of my Sunday chores. I am currently under the hair bonnet dryer. I have had my hair in a turby twist towel since I washed it, but it's taking too long to dry and I want to get on my bed and get comfortable.  It just needs a bit more drying and I'm good to go.   I have my bed linen back on the bed and I have written.  I wrote only 1800 words today, I have been getting in a bit after 2000 each day. I just wasn't feeling it today.  1800 word count is great though, so I'm not too upset. I just want to relax and enjoy the rest of my day if I can. I will be listening to the Shortwave later, too, of course. That I can do while relaxing on my bed. :)


A day at home

Yes, I got to stay in today. Sorry about yesterday. My friend texted as I was in the midst of my daily writing. He was off early and wanted to go to a favorite to eat. I agreed and got ready. We went to a place that is out of town that we like and since we were out that way, we went to two Goodwills that we don't get to a lot because of the distance. That was fun! I got a few things, but nothing huge. I did find a cute fabric Fossil bag. It's one I would actually carry, so that was even better! :) The trip made us get back late and then we rode to a few places around town that he wanted to go by. I got in and I was tired. I didn't even write anymore. I just picked up today from where I left off on my writing today. I didn't leave the house today and I'm not planning on leaving after I post this!

I'm going to move away from my desk and get comfy and relax a bit, watch a few episodes of Match Game, and then I'll tune in on the Shortwave bands. :)

Sunday again

I have accomplished all my chores for today. Bed linen and hair washed, yesterday's laundry put away, and I wrote. I had a few other things that needed doing and I did those too.  Now, I'm going to relax a bit like I did yesterday. I have an Amazon package that was supposed to arrive tomorrow, but now it's coming today. I was hoping it would be here by now. Oh well! I listened to the Shortwave a bit earlier yesterday and that was nice. It was fun to listen at a time when I usually don't. I might do that again today. I just wish the Prime truck would come! :)

Relaxing Saturday

At least that is the plan! I am closing up my M1 and moving to my bed to relax. I will probably read and then tune in to the Shortwave later. I will probably watch a few more videos on YouTube too. All my chores for the day are done except my laundry. It's just been tossed in the dryer. I may put it away tonight or wait until tomorrow. We'll see how it goes. For now, I'm ready to stretch out on my bed.

I was re-reading some old stories a while back and one of them made me want to rewrite it, but now I can't remember which one it was! Oops. I hope to go through some of my old works and see if I can figure it out. I think it would be interesting. I like re-visiting my old works and re-doing them as I write a lot better than I did when I wrote those!  Some are good choices for a revamp or a total rewrite. :)
