Friday Random

Random Rumor of the Week: Just to confirm, yes I am pregnant. He's our third and he's due the first week of August. So don't expect me around much at the end of July. :o)

Random Doubleplusunfun of the Week (with a nod to George): Being left behind while everyone else in the family is at a wedding/reunion up north. Everyone keeps telling me how wonderful it must be to have nothing to do but lounge around and relax.

First, there is plenty to do from gardening, to cleaning, to writing.

Second, this is mind-numbingly dull. I have no kids to entertain me, no husband to talk to, and it's made worse because they're having fun and doing cute things without me around. I don't handle boredom well. I'm out of books to read, stuck in the editing trenches, and I want my family back!!!

Random Progress of the Week: I've resisted the temptation of running off with a new book and finished chapter 18. Chapter 19 is looking a little better. And then I have to edit, something I dread.

Random Plan for the Weekend:
I have a 25'x30' plot of ground turned up for a garden. But it's... chunky. Since most the melons and squash need 3-7 feet between them all of it needs to be smoothed and cleared before I can put more plants in the ground.

This is almost as bad as editing.
