Busy holiday

I haven't been on my schedule since Thanksgiving. Chores have been done in splurges, usually on the weekends. Paperwork and the back bedroom stacks threatened navigation through the house. Cleared space to work in the kitchen shrunk, but was still wider than the clear space in the office. The house and I limped through Christmas. Chad coming over for New Year's inspired me to find the vacuum cleaner lest his allergies send us to the emergency room.

Since being broke really does limit what you can do to entertain yourself, I ended up cleaning. The back bedroom wasn't that bad. The stacks I had made were just right in the door and I had to pull them out and rearrange. Some stuff did end up in the closet that will disappear with the bathroom remodel, but since I don't know when the bathroom will be remodeled, I might as well use the closet. Paperwork got sorted and tossed and some filed, though filing is going to be a work in progress for a while yet.

On Tuesday, Chad went home and I checked off everything on the chores checklist. I sat writing on my freelance job with one ear cocked for the Twilight Zone theme to start playing. Wednesday went equally well, though I have to finish up some new Wednesday chores tonight. It's computer stuff: weekly backup of My Documents and Quicken entry.

Mustard has claimed the back bedroom bed as his. If he's not in my face, he's curled up on it asleep. I haven't had the heart to shut the door and cut off his access.

I got a freelance job, yeah, and it's cruising right along. I want 2007 to be the year I meet my writing goals steadily. So far so good.
