Really. :p Despite the fact that I have Thursday off, it's a long week.

First, though, the good news!

Weight today was 282.5 lbs, which is 3 lbs lighter than last week! Yay! I'm more Twittering my progress than writing it here, but I will keep updating. (The hashtag for this is #operationhealthy, if you're interested.) My nutritionist was very happy with my progress, and I've recommitted to my workouts and my food journal.

Also, I did my full workout today and did some more running, and am happy to report that knees are not complaining! Woot! I'm seriously thinking about starting the Couch to 5k workout in January, but I'm going to check with my Personal Sadist Trainer first. Don't want to be too overenthusiastic and hurt myself.

Writing - I got about 2k written on Saturday, but I won't be picking it up again until after I've gotten all the Birka stuff done, and gotten the edits for Rum and Runestones cleaned up. I have four left that are done on paper - I just need to get a chance to enter them in and then email them out.

I need, seriously, about 10 more hours a day. :P

Also, I'm hosting Thanksgiving on Thursday, which means cleaning and cleaning and more cleaning. I'm tempted to take off a little early either today or tomorrow and make the time up on Friday, so I can get this stuff done. I plan on running low on sleep until I get caught up.

The bulk of my time will be spent finishing up Birka Merchants stuff - I need to send out the remainder of the acceptances and get the folks on the waiting list an update, and I want to have that all done by Wednesday. I'll be doing some more tonight - the more I think about it, the more cutting out of here at 7 pm and getting home by 8 sounds good. That's only 1.5 hrs to make up, and I can do that by staying 30 minutes later or coming in 30 minutes earlier the rest of the week (I work a 4-10 schedule normally, 10 am to 8:30 pm Monday through Wednesday and Friday, with Thursday off, so I work normal hours this week, but I get paid for the holiday, so I'm not complaining too much!).

So Last Rites is on the back-burner and may get picked at on Thursday, in between food or after folks leave. We'll see. If I can get all of Birka done tonight (hm, almost managed to type that without sniggering!), things free up a little bit, but not much.

Ah well. Life goes on. I'll finish the damn book at some point.

If you have an extra dollar or two, please help a family stay in their home. And if you do donate, tell [ profile] mizkit: she's giving away a prize to the person who donates the most on her f-list.

I'm so weepy lately - this story made me cry. I donated already. Please, if you can help, even a dollar would help.

I'm very thankful for many things this Thanksgiving, but mostly I'm thankful for the update on this, which shows how many wonderful, caring, loving people are out there in the Web. Thank you all for giving me the chance to get to know you, even if it's just through this Journal.

To all who celebrate, have a wonderful day! To those who don't, have a wonderful day anyways!!!!
Writing this today, because I'm hosting Thanksgiving tomorrow. :)

This year, I am thankful for...

1. My wonderful, understanding, handsome hubby [ profile] argus7hills. Thank you so much for another great year and I can't wait for Monday, when I go to days!!!

2. The fact that I will have all my family with me tomorrow, and that we still all like each other enough to all be looking forward to Thanksgiving!

3. The fact that I have a warm house and enough money to not have to worry where the next meal or rent check is coming from. Been there, done that, NEVER going back if I can help it.

4. Most importantly, that I and those important to me are healthy and, for the most part, happy.

5. For Bear, Sebastian and Tayla, my three adorable monsters kittens.

6. For the fact that I'm still writing, even though I have no chance in Hell of finishing NaNo. Especially since I'm putting the novel on hold to go back to Seasons.

7. And, last but not least, for all my LJ friends and my readers. You guys rock!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! May it be everything you want and nothing you dread.
