Welcome to the Week from Hell

I hate November. Even when I was music teacher, it was beyond stressful.

Today, thankfully, I have nothing scheduled because they rescheduled a meeting I was supposed to have. I do, however, have to stop by the grocery store on the way to work because I forgot to pick up lunches for me for the week.

Tomorrow. Gosh, I don't even want to wake up tomorrow. Tomorrow is tutoring, Science Night and PTA, all back to back. I'll get to school at 7 and be lucky to leave at 7.

Wednesday is SARA. I will most likely skip.

Thursday (actually, all week, but Thursday is the only day we can go) is this arts and crafts show down at a historic home. It's really beautiful, they serve spiced tea and punch and homemade cookies. And I have to leave by 5:30 to take my son the Battle of the Bands, which will be 6:30 to 9 ish. I better eat a lot of cookies because I don't think I'll have time to eat anything else.

Friday my youngest brother is in a play. (He's in a play Thursday and Saturday, too, but this is the only night we can go.)

Saturday is critique group and a hockey game.

My folks are coming Monday.

And I have a big decision about whether or not to redeem my villain and make him the True Hero. I really don't think I can.

Keep breathing, Mary, and just take it one hour at a time.

Oh, Mary - I'm so sorry. Sending you calming vibes!

Deep breaths, Mary. One day at a time. Sounds very stressful.

I love the idea of you redeeming a villain and turning him into a hero. I'll bet you can do it, and it will be a great story.

Whew, Mary. If I were facing all that, I'd have tanked NaNo by now. You are AWESOME, lady.

One hour at a time. I might be able to do that. The band is practicing tonight and Wednesday, too. Gah.

I don't know about redeeming my villain - he's going to have to do time, and I don't think my heroine will wait.

I really want to do a love scene between them before she realizes she can't do this, though.
