2 Weeks with No Alarm Clock!

From Angela James at Samhain:

In a blog post elsewhere in the blog-o-sphere, Teddy Pig lamented that epublishers don’t publish a top ten bestseller list for the year. I accepted his “challenge” and at the beginning of 2009, Samhain will be publishing their 2008 bestseller list. But I wanted to make it a fun event, and do some other reader-driven lists, so I put together a quick (only five questions) survey for Samhain customers to choose their favorite books and covers. Please take a moment to fill it out and help us compile some “best of” lists to publish with our bestseller list of 2008.

Samhain Survey

It's one of my favorite days of the year....the last day before vacation, full of possibilities! Here, a few days early, are my goals for the two weeks.

1) finish Texas book, write query and synopsis
2) write short story
3) breakfast with Mom
4) lunch with JoAnn
5) lunch with other teachers
6) see SIL and family
7) research trip to Brazoria
8) finish Christmas shopping
9) read 2 books
10) clean house
11) mail contest books
12) enter 2 contests
13) finish Christmas baking
14) critique
15) get Mama Kitty fixed
16) take boy to get eyes checked
17) take boy to get his license
18) at least one trip to the library
19) Oh, yeah, Christmas

It would be lovely if I would hear from one of my editors before they take their break, but if I don't feel like working, why would I think they would?

A cold front is coming in tomorrow night. We've had 2 full days of FOG and another day predicted. Bleh!
