Groan, it's Monday and #giveaway

Good morning. I don't have much to say in this post so I'll just give you a quick update.

Words written this week: 3,340

This works out to be about 556 words a day in a 6 day writing week. Not too bad except that I only wrote 3 days. That needs to pick up to minimum 5 days a week.

Unforgiving Plains is on track to finish by the end of the month. I'm on the last leg and just wrapping up a few things before I can write The End.  I'm starting to think I may be slightly short of my original goal of an 80,000 word rough draft, but seeing as it was more an estimate for length that's okay.

If you didn't already know, I share snippets of each day's writing on my facebook page as well as snippets every day from Heart Like an Ocean which is due out in 20 days!

Pregnancy is still kinda rough. Still exhausted. I'm on medication for nausea but it isn't as effective as I would like. I'm basically on a fruit, veggie and carb diet. Meat seems to be a no-no as well as most dairy. *sigh* 10 weeks along and counting.

The house is moving along steadily. Staining was done last week. Sorry, no pictures because I can't venture in the house due to fumes. There is some white trim to be painted yet but then I believe the next step is painting the walls. After that we're looking at hopefully kitchen install but ordering that seems to be a bit delayed. We're hoping to get that all sorted out this week.

For the most part everything is on schedule. If the kitchen is delayed there are other things we can do such as tile and carpet install, bathrooms...etc... so it shouldn't make a change in our tentative move in date. I'm going to start the count down at 7 weeks left. I know I said 6 last week but if I look at it realistically I'm thinking it should have been 8 last week. So. 7 weeks till we aren't homeless.

Not much else to say. Don't forget to check out the giveaway I have going right now for a $10 Amazon gift card. It's a fairly easy entry process and the chances of winning are high as of right now. Last chance to enter is Saturday Jan 19th.


Hope you all have a wonderful Monday.

Goals for this week:

  • Write 5 days at 500 words/day minimum.
  • Advance one more week in pregnancy resulting in only one more week left of sickness! Fingers crossed.
  • Order kitchen and approve paint colours.

What are your goals for this week? Anything house or writing related?
