It's January 31st. What are you doing tonight?

I can tell you what I'm not doing. I'm not participating in the Scribblerati write-a-thon, trying to squeeze out my word count for JanNoWriMo. I should, but I'm not.

I'm tired. Really tired. I've been staying up late all week trying to get those words out. Last night DH and I babysat for friends. We had a great time with the kids, but didn't get to bed until almost midnight. Of course the dogs still woke me up at the usual time this morning.

I've been a good girl all day: I went to Sunday School and church, helped DH clean out the kitchen drawers (This man needs a job soon! OMG - He's sorting through utensils, pot holders, and old recipes and he doesn't even cook!), organized some stuff in the cabinets, made lunch, cleaned up the kitchen, had one of my son's friends over to play, walked the dogs, made dinner, made coffee, and made a fire in the fireplace. I didn't do any laundry or sort through any mail. Nor did I write. But it's 7:45 on Sunday night, the fire is crackling cosily in the other room, and I'm not going to spend the rest of the evening in this horrid, uncomfortable chair in front of the PC.

I think I'll go watch "Prince Caspian," since I'm reading the Chronicles of Narnia again, and go to before eleven o'clock, for a change.

How about you?

Hi Vikk! I did finish in time, since the deadline was extended to Feb. 4th for administrative reasons.

But I am soooo sick this weekend. Argh! cough cough cough. I'm even too sick to write, which is bad. I can't sit up and type that long.

But I am determined to get this book done for good.
