Yay! I got to see Men in Trees last night. I didn't think it was on and then there it was! Cash wasn't in this one, but in the previews I see he's part of next week's episode. I'm looking forward to that!
I got some more Christmas shopping done yesterday after work. I'm slowly chipping away at the list. My 6-year-old niece's birthday party is today so after that I'll be able to shop some more. Hopefully I'll find the December Intrigues somewhere for me so I can pick up my friend Carol Ericson's first book. I follow the Christmas shopping rule that I buy something for myself with each trip out for presents. It motivates me more!
I've got to go into work on Sunday to do some stuff to make my next week easier. At least it's only 9 more days with the kids and 1 staff development day until we're off for the holidays. We also have our book fair next week and I got suckered into chairing that so I have to make sure it's ready.
Yesterday during my shopping spree, I found some certificates of participation for the 50 words a day for 50 days challenge and I found some cute journals for each of the kids who has made it to the 100 days with me. I decided that I'm going to have 3 drawings for "grand prizes"- 1 for the kids who did the 50/50 challenge, 1 for the kids who did the 100/100 challenge and one for all the kids who wrote every single day. Oh and we're also having some kind of ice cream treat during the party, which is on our last day of the 100 days (Wednesday).
YAY! I get my car back on Monday! And the bill? During my last conversation with the mechanic, he said something like, "What we found will add another $100 to the bill." I've had a week to prepare for it so it's not so bad. At least it's a mechanic I trust, which is always half the battle, right?
After the b-day party, the shopping and the cleaning of the house (well, part of it anyway), I plan to play with my suspense characters. Yes I'll write my 100 words, but today I want to work on the hero's goals, motivation and conflict.
What about you? Any big plans for the weekend?
