Thirteen Things Happening in Our Household This Week

  1. Thank You - to those of you kind enough to comment on my little 'panic' attack yesterday (for want of a better word).
  2. My new Nick Hornby book The Complete Polysyllabic Spree finally came in at the library! Right at the wrong time too, because I've just picked up again...
  3. ...Margaret George's Cleopatra and am right into it again. I enjoy her work.
  4. Rats Update - oh yeah, they're still there. I am lulled to sleep now by their convivial squealing and scurryings (not). Exterminators arrive TOMORROW!
  5. Book Draft Finished! This should have been first, probably. 800 words of children's picture book done! Now to whittle it down to 500-odd.
  6. Riley's Sleeping? Still shite.
  7. Rain. It rained nicely at the beginning of the week. Now, its back to 30-plus degree heat. That's March for you.
  8. Keira's new favourite saying is, "What's This?" She hasn't hit the "Why?" phase yet, but this other one's got to be as exasperating.
  9. Dentist. After my TT of two or three weeks ago when I talked about my senstitive teeth, I went in to maintenance overload. I had an appointment appointment the other night and got a clean report! Woo Hoo!
  10. Rejection stinks....I had a magazine article proposal rejected this week (as I suspected) but...
  11. I re-submitted it to another because it's good, dammit.
  12. Darren announced last week his list of guest contributors for while he's in the USA, and the more astute reader might have picked out my humble little name among the crowd. I am still floored and not a little nervous about my appearance, which will be mid-April. If you read Problogger that day, a nice comment for me would make me happy :)
  13. Um, I think point 12 is worth saying again!

#12 does indeed deserve saying again, at the risk of being redundant and repeating yourself. Good show! I had never heard of Problogger (duh!). I'm sure you will let us know when to look for your article.

30 degree heat... I'm assuming you mean celcius

Good Luck on you guest blogger spot!

Happy TT!


Blogger Barbara said ... (7:10 am) : 

I can understand about the weather. We had our rain and cold spell, but not, it's sunshine and 80 degrees almost every day - TOO hot for March. The grandkids are at the beach (or at least 2 are still there) and the ocean is too cold this time of year!

Congrats on the guest contribution and you'll do fine.

Check out my TT.


Blogger Nancy J. Bond said ... (10:45 am) : 

Congrats on finishing your book draft. A very good feeling. Great list!

Sorry for the article, but congratulations on the book draft! And sounds like a great week!

Happy TT!

There's hardly anything better than getting a good report from the dentist! Congrats on finishing the book draft.
