Monday. Again?

Monday is my day to schedule my week and compile my "to do" list.For some reason it never seems to get any shorter. And this time of year it's even worse. First priority is to get my project finished for my online ebusiness course, due by the end of the week. It's a website for my web design business. And I've been working on my author website as well.

My crit group meets Thursday and I want to have my first chapter completed for them to review. I had a few logic problems in the first scene. I've figured out a solution so now I have to rewrite that scene. My hero and heroine work together and I want them to have that kind of quick, witty banter you see in the old movies - or in a Susan Mallery or Susan Elizabeth Phillips book. Hard work to be clever on every page. This is the short contemporary I plan to pitch to Desire for their online pitch in March. Don't have all the details so that date might change. But, I have a book to complete in the next three months.

And, the bathroom needs to be cleaned and the Christmas shopping needs to be done. I've picked up a few minor things but I need to go on a power shopping expedition and not come home until it's completed. And if all else fails, gift cards - or books.

I also have a 50th surprise birthday party to attend and a funeral. On the same day. And my nephew's girlfriend is pregnant and due a couple of days ago. So hopefully we'll have another bundle of joy in the family to celebrate. The circle of life.

Sounds like you're nephew's baby and my sister's baby might arrive on the same day. :) And I normally love doing a to do list (or any list for that matter) but even mine is freaking me out a little this week. I keep having to remind myself to breathe...just breathe... and learn to manipulate time...
