I had a wonderful day! YAY! Aidan woke me up, and he was being super cute. We had apple cinnamon muffins and crispy crowns for breakfast. Yummy! Then, Chris got home and that’s when I did my thing with the TVs and stuff. We headed to Best Buy, and the cable I needed was $24.99. I’d seen them on eBay for much cheaper, so decided to wait and get it from there. Well. I got to [the grove] and got to talking to Chad. He mentioned he had three extras and that I was welcome to one! So YAY. Video games, woo!
I got the best surprise ever!! Well, two surprises. I’ll only post one until I know it’s okay for me to spread the news about the other. So yeah… Monica (bluemo84) showed up tonight! I’d been missing her like crazy, and seeing her was like… amazing. Here we are, looking cute (well, except for my hair…):
Seeing Monica was seriously like a breath of fresh air, and then Bizzy showing up was even nicer. We all had dinner at Wendell’s Pub. Abbie used to work there. I had never been, but the food was so yummy. I had a great time, just talking and hanging out, and watching Chad Jr. give Ben a wet willy. So gross, yet so funny.
I love it when I FINALLY do things I’d been meaning to do. I feel so accomplished. For example, I’d been meaning, for MONTHS, to hook up all the electronics so that we wouldn’t have to move the TV unhook the DVD player, and then plug in the Playstation to play the Playstation 2.
Today, I noticed that Chris had unhooked the DVD player to play Playstation and didn’t put it back before he went to church, and Aidan was wanting to watch Danger Mouse. Instead of simply moving them back to their correct places (not that I could figure it out anyway), I got out the converter box and went to work. Now, the VCR, Playstation 2, and the DVD player are all hooked up. I have to run to Best Buy to get an “all out” converter, and once I do that, I can hook up the Super NES as well. YAY. Now I can watch videos, DVDs, play games, all that fun stuff without moving that heavy, dusty TV. It will only take the push of a button. Woo. In addition, I can pull out my dance tapes and get my butt back in shape. Yay.
I also finally scanned an important document for Chris. That also involved hooking up stuff–mainly putting my laptop upstairs and hooking it to periphials. But that’s done, yay.
I beat my March word count goal of 32,000 words! I got into the ZONE and kept writing and writing. I LOVE when that happens!!
Who did NOT see this coming?

Alright. Off to the showers, then the stores. ‘Til next time.
Got a smaller notebook for all of my WIP notes. It’s three subject with hard covers. So far, it’s very nice. I have a section for general notes, one for plot points, little things I need to add it, the calendar, setting details, things like that. The WORLD building, I guess. Another section for character information. Another one for specific scenes that need to be written. I’ve also gone through several magazines and cut out lots of info to use. Pictures of the MC’s bedroom. Clothing she likes. Quotes that are relevant to the story. Those will get taped into the notebook once I get my hands on some removable tape. I’m telling you, that stuff is the best.
I feel so productive!
I also realized why my word count goes up so slowly. It’s because I keep revising as I write. So I can write like 3,000 words but it doesn’t really make a difference when I delete 1000 words from a different time, you know?
I also think I have a title. But I’m still not sure yet, so for now, it will stay UNTITLED.
‘Til next time!
