Join Jennifer, The Skipper too, The Millionaire and his Wife, the Movie Star, and the rest, here on 7 Quick Takes Fridaaaaayyyyy!
About an hour ago I sent off my final scheduled DYFAM blog tour post to Celeste at A Perpetual Jubilee. A few other bloggers have invited me over for interviews, but as of right now there’s nothing pressing on the calendar. Some time in the relatively near future, I will have a post about How Not to Do A Blog Tour. Because… dang. I shot myself in the mental foot so many times I’ve lost count. My hosts were all wonderful and gracious. I just made this harder on myself (and, I’m sorry to say, on them) than it ever needed to be. I did hit my primary goal of getting my posts to my hosts at least one week in advance. Other than that, though…yeah. I’m glad it’s winding down.
Anyway, here’s the list I’ve been treasuring in my heart over the past month of writing posts and commenting on them and otherwise promoting Don’t You Forget About Me. And that list is called…
7 Things I Will Do When This Blog Tour Is (Mostly) Done
- Make these cupcakes. A friend at co-op made them for our Halloween party. They are so worth making at home for no good reason other than, yay, I don’t have to write anything tonight.
- Return to my pre-tour showering schedule. Same goes for flossing.
- Get to the gym… though now that I’ve been given the boot, I haven’t quite figured out how to make this happen before my foot’s 4 week incarceration has been served.
- Mop a floor. At least one.
- Declutter. Though that’s like having the goal of “Flying to Mars on Wings Made of Fountain Grass.”
- Prepare for the upcoming holiday season. Cards. Shopping. Wrapping. Decorating badly and cheaply. Before you all whine at me about “It’s not the holiday season. It’s CHRISTMAS, you soulless wretch,” I feel VERY strongly that nobody should be calling it a HOLIDAY SEASON moreso than we Catholics. We have so many holy-days between now and The Baptism of Lord, that if that’s not a season of holidays, then I’m a wilted cabbage leaf.
- Educate my children again. I haven’t taught math or Latin in nearly three weeks. We’re already more than halfway through the number of hours our state requires us to log, so it’s not like I’m negligent or they’re truant, but the return to a structured schedule would be good for all of us.
