Four on Friday...

1. I helped close out the Scholastic Book Fair today -- it's so much fun! I love chatting with the kids when they come in and encouraging them to read good books. I might (hehe) promote books from authors I know. I also bought plenty of books for myself and the kiddos (sigh) -- I can't seem to help myself.

2. E is so excited for her birthday. D doesn't really get like that, and it's been too long for me to remember if I ever felt like that...but E is practically vibrating with it (and she still has five days).

3. Today is the end of the longest week of the year (ha). I get nine whole days to sleep in, and I'm going to try and take advantage of every one of them :D. We're lazing around this weekend (I picked up Reached from the library, so I have plenty to read) -- though we will get to see our good friends (camping friends) tomorrow night.

4. Which means that I should have time to write. I really want to finish my NaNo novel this week -- and it's within the realm of possibility, I think.

What are your plans for time off next week? Black Friday shopping (ha!)?

Are NaNo works published anywhere? About 3-4 of my LJF's seem to be working on them ... might be fun to read.

I get Black Friday off ... might go shopping. When I worked in retail, the office crew got to work in the stores that day. High volume retail is hard work I can say.

Enjoy your many day vacation!

I would think retail (on Black Friday) would be really stressful!

I'm very excited for the break (though because I have so many students who are behind, I ended up working for a while tonight -- blech).

ETA: The NaNo novels are only published if we luck out and get a publisher ;)

I have to work the day after Thanksgiving. Blah. A lot of people took the day off, so we'll be terribly short-staffed, but I can't imagine we'll be that busy. *shakes head*

Oh, the trade-off is that we get Good Friday off. I think I'd rather have Black Friday, not because of the shopping, but for the 4-day weekend.

Yes, a 4-day weekend would be nice...I hope it goes quietly for you.

I plan to take it easy. Also hope to see latest BREAKING DAWN movie by myself. And of course read. I still have tons of Cybils nominated books to go through.

Taking it easy sounds like a good plan, Kim -- let your body heal a bit, right? :)
