Anyway, since I'm back on my laptop for this, and I'm tethered to my phone, it just gobbles up data for for the month, so that's why this is a rush.
It's snowing outside, landing on top of the current foot and a half currently residing like a big, white beast over all of Mio. I love it, though, and really don't mind, though I grumble along with everyone else so I don't get assaulted with cries of "How could you!?" and "It's probably all your fault...!" you'd be surprised at how deep cabin fever is around here; I don't mess with it.
I went out in my snowshoes, and what fun! it's very crunchy, running in a paddlefoot style, and much easier than it looks, though it gets you puffing as it is some work, too. It's like walking with heavy boots on.
Taco Tuesday tonight, Bowling tomorrow night, work on Thursday...
Oh, I made out a plot outline for my story I wrote a few weeks ago, and i have it right here, ready to go for edits, and, well, I keep stalling. I don't know why I have so many writing worries, but I do, there you go.
I'm working on the story that I submitted for the 400 flash liberty hall. Based on the story, I have a sort of mini outline done up and we'll begin rewriting probably tomorrow but maybe Monday.
I purposefully did not enter the 401th flash, as my intentions are to try every other one, which gives me time to try and finish a story rather than just tuck it away and keep writing new stories.
I'm not sure how I'm going to manage submitting or even if.

Wow, all these tags I have, and no tag for sports, how is that even possible!? The hubs been watching the Olympics like crazy, but I've only been watching bits and snippets. We went out to Taco Tuesday last night at a bar and one of my friends had them change the channel to curling on the Olympics, pretty soon everyone was yelling "sweep, you b*****ds, sweep!" I was laughing so hard my ribs hurt.
alas, USAs curling hopes are dashed for this Olympics,
I did a flash at liberty hall for the 400 th and plan to print it out and see if I can do some of the edits they suggested, one was most interesting was talking about not ruining the quirkiness, lol, that's very astute because I struggle with that.
My muses seem to love the quirkiness, and my inner editor is very anxious to crush it, crush it good! So its a quandary.

I'm using my phone to make these posts, the speech recognition? I think it does pretty well, a little sketchy on capitals and some punctuation, and I can't get too clever or it starts auto correcting, but oh I love how fast it is and how easy.
One of my favorite offices to work at is closing on the 15th of this month. It's so sad. Another office, the one I'm at the most (Curran), went from 4 hours a day to 2, and no reduction in scans, reports, paperwork--there was a time when I was running around like a spinning top, but it's ok, now.
oh, well, so it goes, and I've got more decades to go, hopefully, so I'm not dwelling on it--avoiding mirrors, sure, but that's expected, lol!
It's been a great day so far, and we're going out to dinner tonight with friends. I'm going to work today, too; I didn't request the day off earlier, so that's how it worked out. I don't mind, really, and it gets me out.
Oh, and it's been too long since I've peeked in here, I just get pulled in too many directions and put things off. Not much news, not much writing, too much not finishing projects, too much tv, all the usual.
I've been working at the post office a lot, mostly at the Curran Post Office, but this coming week I'm going going to be at Curran, Comins, National City, and Luzerne, and I've never worked at the National City office. I'm in a little bit of a panic about it, really, as every office is so different. Still, it'll be fine, and I plan to drive to that office on Monday after Curran is closed and get a quick tour and how-to so it won't be as stressful as otherwise.
I actually was going to stop after about 650 words, as I have some wriggle room with it this week because I'm actually ahead in word count for the week, but then I thought, no, I'm going to go the whole way. It's 750 words a day. Just because I did more yesterday doesn't mean anything. For example, it doesn't mean go fewer. Some days I may *have* to, but not today. Maybe tomorrow, I'm at the post office for a full eight hours, and I don't know how much energy I'll have, plus I need to critique for LH and all. Shoot, I probably should write a few hundred extra today :)
I'm embracing my inner pantser.
Our eldest daughter turned 29 the other day, omg, that is so surreal.
