Went shopping with Kelly yesterday and had a bit of fun wandering around the craft store, this was a good break for me as I was in a slump on the homework end. It was good to get out with her and Vicki to shop in a craft store.
Today is a study day. I have a long list of homework I need to get done. I also have to get some of my writing stuff done. I want to finish off my grant and get it submitted so I can just be done with it. I found another grant I want to work on but the deadline isn’t until June so I have lots of time to work on it.
One of the publications I have submitted to in the past contacted me to ask for submissions. I’m going to get two or three things done for them this weekend. Unfortunately the only payment I get is free copies of the magazine but it is publications on my resume. I have at least one other submission to make today because the deadline is looming. The articles all need editing and I have final edits on the grant material to do. The other submission I think is ready to go – I just want to read through it once. After I get these three things done, I’ll be switching over to homework and hopefully making good progress.
I’m supposed to go to my sister’s house today for a birthday thing for my nephew but it really depends on how much homework I get done. If I make good progress I’ll go – if I don’t, I won’t be able to as I have so much to do.
I did finish the capelet I was making for Vicki – I just have to sew the closing on it that we picked up yesterday. I also worked on Kelly’s scarf that I ran out of yarn for. I think by tomorrow I’ll have that done.
I know it sounds like I had a tedious weekend but I had fun with Kelly and Vicki. I also am getting stuff done which always makes me feel good. Now if I can get just a few more things crammed into the too short weekend I will feel like I can tackle the week without a giant weight on my shoulders.
