Widdling away

At my To Do list. This might be the longest To Do list I've ever created. It's a mix of work stuff, travel stuff, personal stuff, house stuff, promo stuff (as evident by the pic), etc...


So let's see what I have left for this week before leaving for Orlando and the RWA National Conference next week:
  • dry cleaning
  • vacuum the stairs
  • wash the sheets
  • mow the yard
  • finish sending out bookmarks and swag
  • write four guest posts
  • finish one interview
  • finish laundry
  • grocery shop

Oy. I think that's enough for now. There's more. And did you notice that no where did I mention any actual writing? Which is a big bummer, but there are way too many things to accomplish this week. Just slightly overwhelmed, and maniacal at this point. Also have to pack... And that's going to be a B^%*ch. :D

But I am getting excited and happy. I've been looking forward to this trip, to spending sometime with my friends, getting to know my agent a bit better (we're having lunch together and I'll be attending the agency cocktail party, and I'm sure I'll be seeing her around the con as well), spending some time with my hub and kid. Ooh, and my birthday is Friday of next week, and I think we're going to find a cool place to eat at Disney. And then there's the award's ceremony... There is a lot of work leading up to the con, but once there, I think it's going to be awesome fun!

Have to make sure my camera is charged. Now, where the hell is the charger? Hmm...

I remember during the Romantic Times convention a couple of authors tweeting about writing AT the convention in their hotel room. I can't imagine being able to have that much discipline. Geesh. That is a big list-- sure you can't delegate? LOL

Oh boy - start delegating some things. Have someone else mow the lawn and maybe even do the laundry. Although I remember when I was a certain age, I didn't want anyone else to do the laundry - I had a system. I've since given up that chore. LOL

Have fun at the conference!

Yes. I'd *so* love to delegate. Okay, Moon, you can do the mowing and Mardel, the laundry. :D :D

Seriously, though, if the hub wasn't out of town, I could delegate some. As it is now, there is no one but me...

And funny thing, Moonsanity, but I'm thinking once I get to RWA, I'll be way less overwhelmed than I am now, so I'm hoping to get a lot of writing done!
