Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
|It's Saturday, November 16, all though for some reason I seem to want to think it's November 17. It's a good thing I can look on my computer or cell phone to find out the date because otherwise I wouldn't know Saturday from Sunday or any other day of the week. The week of November 10-16 has been interesting, to say the least, and stressful, so it isn't any wonder I've encountered several senior moments when I can't remember shit. On reason, is that I didn't print off a To Do List anytime during the week. I will print my list off daily next week. I'll have to because I have so much to accomplish between November 17 and November 23.
This week, what I did accomplish is listed in "November Accounting: November 11-15, 2013" . In addition, I wrote "December Memories" and submitted "How to Eat a Chocolate Easter Bunny" to "Elle's Kitchen Newsletters" . In addition, I had to do a little house keeping on my writing.com e-mail box and I still have more to do. Next week I have to do the stuff listed in this offsite blog entry http://poet999writingthoughts.blogspot.com/2013/11/nanowrimo-day-16-update-and-t.... I expect the house to close somewhere around November 21, which means I have to find an apartment (which I can afford) and move sometime within the next two weeks. With all this to do I'm surprised I haven't encountered more senior moments. I just realized there were some stuff I didn't add to that list, but which I have to add to my To Do List for November 17-23.
I hope things calm down after I move. I'm not sure that they will because once I move, then I have to unpack. It normally takes me at least a year to unpack everything when I move. I'm moving to a studio apartment, but I would prefer a one-bedroom apartment. The only things I have to take with me are two bookcases, books, three computer desks, two computers, a printer, a dining table and five, six, or seven chairs. I don't have a bed, so I may have to take the love seat to sleep on until I can afford to purchase a recliner. I'm not purchasing a bed because sleeping in beds has become too painful.
I'm not going to list any of my goals for the coming week in this entry because I still have to put them in a format that I can handle much easier then the way I wrote them in the blog entry (see earlier link). I'm going to close this now because I have to fix me some breakfast, I have to take a shower before I go out this afternoon, I have to have more coffee, and I have to write something in today's chapter of "Midnight in Suburbia" . If anyone is reading this please say a prayer for my sanity, leave a comment, or a suggestion.
