Sept Reading List

Sooooo......August has gone and my score card for the goals look terrible:

-Do well at Watermelon Fest  Sold 2, and 4 samples of new coloring book:)
-Finish paying for KABB  Nope.
-Start paying for Imaginarium Nope
-Pay B  Not even close.
-Pay for OA Honestly, I can't remember if I owe him $20 or $40...
-Make payments to both editor and cover artist Nope.
-Finish Ghost Story  Added about 2K....
-Finish paying for Christmas Toy and Hobby Show  Still owe $135...
-Make progress on Heart Song  Nope.
-Progress to Stage #7 on Secret Project #2  Made it to Phase #6-C....
-Complete Phases C and D of Secret Project #1  Am ready for Phase D:)

What HAVE I been doing this month, besides working on Ghost Story?  I've had dryer issues; homework issues; teacher meetings; football meetings, and granddaughter issues.  I've also binge-watched Brain Dead, the Olympics, and as of this past weekend, Season #5 of Once Upon A Time.  I'm also keeping up with Big Brother 18 and Deadliest Catch.

Despite all this, I have managed to read 9 books, 7 print and 2 e-books, and added 19 songs to the Karaoke 'Good' list:)  I've also managed to lose 2 pounds, despite going on a blackberry cobbler craze and eating 3 of them in 2 weeks.  With help, not just all by myself!

With that in mind, here are the September Goals:
-Do well at Wine and Art Fest  Bleh....sold one key chain. Everyone wanted Hotel Stories, which I was sold out of.
-Pay for and attend the Eminence Fall Festival???  Not looking very promising.....
-Do well at Bicentennial Celebration  Sold 11!!!!

-Start paying for Imaginarium  Only have to come up with car rental and $30, plus food!
-Pay B
-Pay for OA
-Make payments to both editor and cover artist
-Finish Ghost Story
-Finish paying for Christmas Toy and Hobby Show

Karaoke Songs (Thurs)
Wake Me Up When September Ends-Green Day Slightly low, but not too bad....
Final Countdown-Europe  Nailed it:)
Walking in Memphis- Marc Cohn  Was told it was good:)

Walking on Sunshine-Katrina and the Waves Nailed it:)
Wannabe-Spice girls  Was told it was good:)
I was hit with laryngitis on the 18th and while the voice did eventually return, I cannot sing above high 'C'.  Then complications with the karaoke computer on the 29th meant I could only sing one song.  :(

Little Toy Guns-Carrie Underwood  DNH

Little Willie-Sweet  Did fairly well...

Again, laryngitis prevented me from singing on the 24th.  Tried to do Longer (D. Fogleburg), but voice decided to mimic a teenage boy going through puberty, so told Mark to take me out of the rotation!
