Five on Friday...

1. I'm so ready for a three-day weekend.

2. The last 'event' went well, but by the end, I was beyond tired and not thinking that clearly (oops). Hopefully, I didn't say anything too stupid. Of course, the kiddos had to go with me, and they were also tired (and thus hyper). I don't 'yell' at them, but I was pretty firm...I'm hoping it didn't put anyone off. *sigh*

3. My classes started yesterday. The first week is all them (they're working on the first assignment), so I only had to send out my greeting and some additional instructions for some. Still, I'm gearing up.

4. DH is having a heckuva time learning his new software. Apparently, there are some bugs (no surprise), and it took him all day just to work out one appraisal -- he was not a happy camper! And since he mutters at his computer while he's working, it's hard for me to concentrate. By the time I had to fix dinner and prepare for the stuff last night, I was done.

5. Good news: I finished my first draft yesterday (actually typed 'the end')! It's only taken me seven months to write this book (ack)...that might be a record ;) Now, of course, it needs tons of work -- but revising is my favorite part. I'm hoping to get it done in one month (well, we'll see).

Enjoy the first weekend of September, and for those in the U.S., a great three-day weekend!

I am so not ready for summer to end ... I missed it completely.

Software bugs ... or operator error ;o)

Congrats on the book ... will keep my eye on the best-seller charts!

Best-seller charts -- that's a good one ;)

It does...especially after all these months! Let's hope the revision doesn't take just as long ;)

Happy that you finished your first draft and can join me in the revising trenches :) Well, sort of -- I'm revising one novel and trying to finish the first draft of another one but it's almost done so I'm already thinking in revision mode for both ;)

Congrats on finishing your draft! If I finished a book in seven months it would be a speed record for me. :-)

I can't believe it's September already. Have a lovely long weekend. Kids here start school the day after Labour Day, which is the effective end of summer.

This summer went by way too quickly, but feeling the weather shift (very suddenly this morning) makes it seem like fall -- which is fresh and new and exciting :)

Technically, I'm not finished with the book...but at least the first draft is done ;) Thanks!
