August Reading Schedule

I'm pretty proud of myself.  I actually accomplished ALL of my July goals!
-Add words to Heart Song and RiKar's Redemption  Finished Ch. 5 of HS!!
-Get hair trimmed and re-dyed  Check:)
-Pedicure  Check:)
-Attend Nashville event  Nope.....Mom leaving Sat am.
-Attend JHS mini-reunion  Check:)
-Volunteer at Indies in Indy event  Check:)
-Have a relaxing 'stay-cation' while house sitting  Check:)
-Do well at WheatFest  Handed out cards, but zero sales.

Yeah, yeah....I hear you...I've had it pretty easy the last three weeks, with being at my mom's, house-sitting, setting my own schedule, and sleeping in as late as I want.  So why did I only finish Ch. 5?  Well, I also updated four of Kenzie's novellas, had a few WTH moments with some close friends, and got hooked on Nostalgia TV.  See, the parents don't have Dish or Direct TV, so I spent the mornings rewatching Remington Steele, Perry Mason, and Matlock.  I usually ended every night with Carol Burnett.  Plus on Sunday, I could watch Mary Tyler Moore, Rhoda, and Love Boat.

But I digress.....

Now I'm back home; school starts for EVERYONE this Thurs (can you believe it?  Granddaughter A begins kindergarten this year!), and I officially get 'my life' back.  So to speak, anyway.  I still have to deal with a spouse that's home all the time.  Plus, my home office isn't set up yet.  The days of sending kids off to school and me writing happily for 6 hours are gone.  Sigh....

Books Read:  2

       E-book:  1

Weight:  Dropped from 135-132, and am hoping Mom's scale is ten pounds heavier than mine....I'd hate to think I've packed on ten more pounds!!!  Forgot to weigh myself this past weekend.  Crap....I've put back on twelve pounds.  Sigh....I was doing SO GOOD!!!!!
