Plans, Plans, and More Plans

Alright, so here's the 411. (Yes, I've been dying to use that in a post since the beginning of blogging.) It was recently decided that I am hosting family for Christmas at my house. This is exciting and happy news... and also makes it necessary for me to finish the guest floor of my house. Three bedrooms, a bathroom and a family room--by Christmas.

So, in light of this new happy and stressful information, I will be cutting my blogging down to a maximum of once a week until after Christmas. I think if I don't, I will have zero minutes to work on writing, and I am desperate to work on Insomnia.

I think I will start doing a weekly post that includes some DIY tips as well as some fun mixed in. I will be reading your blogs, but I might not be commenting as much for a bit.

if you know what that means, you deserve a cookie. :)

  1. Wow! What a project. Sounds like you will be busy. How fun. But, have you thought about me and my feelings? I don't think you have. :) As long as there is some writing done on a certain book in your spare time I will be fine (in case you were worried). :)

  2. Good luck on the renos. I really need to do that as my whole house needs painting, but I think I'll wait until after Christmas.

  3. Wow! So much ambition. I can't imagine hosting Christmas for my family. That's awesome--and a lot of work. Good luck finishing and still getting a little writing done.

  8. Pshaw, I know you, and you can finish those renovations is a weekend with your hands tied behind your back whilst still recovering from whatever virulent flu A you happen to have caught. ;)

  9. Balance is a good thing. Write, renovate, and let your blog simmer. S'okay.

  10. Good luck! Here I was stressing because I need to get my house clean. I guess someone else always has it worse. :)

  12. I know it's going to turn out great. (I work best under deadline pressure too, so understand why you took on the stresses. hehe)

    Ya know...this might make a great "New Home in Five Weeks" e-book, or at the least, you'll be gathering great fodder for future novel inclusion. :)

  16. Wow. You've got your hands full there. But I am confident that you would have everything done exactly on time. Good luck on Insomnia. Judging from the title, I am pretty sure it is going to be one great read.
