An end to June; the beginning of July
Goodbye, A to Z Blog Hop. Hello, July’s version of the NaNoWriMo. Yes, once again, insanity has me in its grip and I’m going to attempt to write 50k in a month. I don’t have a desk yet. My old one had gone through three moves and just plain did not survive being taken apart yet again. So, we bought a new one. It just hasn’t been delivered yet. In the meantime, I’m working from my laptop on a TV tray in a living room surrounded by boxes, both unpacked and not. The only hint of normalcy lies in the DVD bookshelves. Early on, I put the bookcases up against the wall where they now live and filled them with DVDs. They are now alphabetized and in their proper places. We don’t have a TV or DVD-player hooked up to play them yet, but they are, at least, “put away.” That gives me hope for the rest of the house.
We are all the way moved now. It took three U-hauls and a trailer, but the Hubby and I have moved out of the old house and are now in the new one. Yay. I’m returning to the old house tomorrow for the last and final (where’s something wooden to knock on?) time to sweep the floors and shut off the utilities. Then it’s off to Dad’s house to spackle the heck out of those walls and make sure the renovations are going where they need to go.
That wasn’t at all what I started off wanting to talk about when I decided to do a blog post today.
A massive, giant thank you to Celeste Jones for the inspiration and motivation to get the A to Z blog hop started and to keep it going. It was a lot of fun, though I didn’t get to participate in it anywhere near like I should have. In my research for it, I did find some new and interesting authors to read. Hopefully, you did two. All two of you, faithful readers, you know who you are. 🙂
As for the prizes for the Sci-Spanks, those are set to be announced tomorrow! We have been asked to withhold the winners for our own personal blogs until then so everyone can be announced at the same time. So, while a winner for the $10 Amazon or B&N gift card that I am giving away has been picked, I will be announcing it tomorrow., just as soon as I’m cleared to.
