Kick. Start. Monday. The Jinx

So much time and so little to do! - Strike that. Reverse it. (movie?)

This is the week:
  • It's my week at Unicorn Bell - feeling emotional? Stop by =)
  • We are going to Disney World on Wednesday! But it doesn't seem real. I haven't had any time to get excited about it! Work, revising, cleaning, sickness - and I'm so worried about someone getting sick on the trip. This is a valid worry because we know too well where the best urgent cares are in the Kissimmee area. Ugh! We will have a great time, I know. As soon as I get off the plane I'll be fine.
  • And when we get back we'll turn around and head up North for Thanksgiving. That's two weeks of travel, people! What was I thinking?!
  • NaNoWriMo & NaNoRevMo are at half time, getting psyched up to finish the game. I hope all your goals are within reach! If not, kick it into gear! I'm pretty much on schedule. But I don't know what all this travel is going to do to my revising time.
  • Tomorrow is the last day to offer pen names to Abby Fowers, children's book writer.
  • Tomorrow is also the day to submit Holiday stories to Jenny's Imaginary World, Holiday Blog Hop - isn't it cute? Wish I had time to do it!
  • Busy, busy, busy!
  • And I almost forgot! Please stop by this weekend and share a Slumber Party Story for my birthday =) THANKS!
Now for my favorite part of the morning...finding out the poetry topic of the day!
PAD #14, deadly and/or dangerous

The Jinx

I've created a masterpiece
Heart swells with pride
I'm such a genius!
To myself I confide

I try to upload it
With just a quick click
The screen fades to black
Yeah, that did the trick.

Why does this e'er happen?
What do I do now?
I have to seek help
I thought I knew how

He gives me the look
I hate causing a fuss
I know just enough
to be dangerous.

I'm jealous too! Take us with you! And I totally hear you on the busy thing. WOW! Life is so hectic. Now I'm off to Unicorn Bell. :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That is a lot of travel! Enjoy Disneyworld. Avoid the Teacups if you're prone to barf though.

E.R. King said...

I look forward to the blog hop! I'm glad you're doing it too.

Mina Burrows said...

Wow! I'm spinning. And I thought I had too much going on...

I'm inspired. :)

Laura Marcella said...

I love Disney World! I was there for my first time when I was 20. It was awesome!!! Have a wonderful time, Tara!

Christina Lee said...

NICE! Are you going to Hogwarts (*jealous*)?

Angela Brown said...

Enjoy your trip and think happy thoughts about that whole sickness thing. Perhaps positive thoughts will keep the aiments away :-)

You are certainly a very busy Tara. Just remember: You're head is attached on its own. You breath without conscious thought of the action and your heartbeats without command. Everything else is gravy.

Wow...wow...and wow!!!

Remember to breathe and enjoy that time with your family. Make some wonderful memories and refresh your brain!

I like your poem too!

Take some great pictures for us!
Heather
