A Busy Sunday: Midday Check-in

We head back to work tomorrow and I have been busy today trying to do a bunch of stuff before the work week starts up again.  So far today, I’ve done the following:

  • Cooked a big breakfast for the family, eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, toast, yum!
  • Paid all the outstanding bills (mostly insurance stuff since everything else is paid automatically)
  • Cleaned off my desk
  • Updated various online accounts to provide paperless statements
  • Exported Part I of my NaNoWriMo novel to my Kindle (so I can read through it prior to beginning “Rescue” tomorrow)

Things that are still on my list to get done today:

  • Install some new lights in the office
  • Catch up on the lastest New Scientist and Scientific American
  • More preparation for my talk on science fiction
  • Read 2 stories for critique at the Arlington Writers Group on Wednesday
  • Clean the hardwood floors
  • Clean the bathrooms
  • Take out the trash
  • Put in my 30 minutes on the elliptical
  • Cook dinner (chicken parmesan tonight)

I’ll check back in later to see just how well I ended up doing.
