What's On My Desk: The Crazy Month of May Edition

Tra-la!  It's May!  The crazy month of May!  (Okay, so in Camelot, they sing different words...but this is a G-rated blog, so no Lusty Month of May here!)

So, let's take a look at what's on my desk, metaphorically speaking, of course.

To-do this weekend:

30-50 more pages of line-edits on Trinket.  (Yeah, I know.  I did line-edits already.  But sometimes, there are more.)

Clean junk off of desk, remembering to put important junk in a place I will find it again.  (Yes, I am talking about you, June 23rd SDSU parking pass!!)

Clean out fridge (ugh.)

Clean out pantry (ick.)

Paint hallway (hahahaha!  Good one!  Like that's going to happen!  Why is it that hallways are white and people's fingers are grimy?)

Get rid of stupid looking table in the backyard.  It is never, EVER used.  It looks ugly.  If I do nothing else this weekend, I will feel good if at least the table is GONE.  (Sometimes, I wish my husband read my blog...just sayin.)

Go to final Show Choir performance.  Bring kleenex.  (Last high school show for my senior.*sob*)

See new Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

Write 3-5 pages of *new* book.  (When life gets too hectic, every writer needs a safe place to play.)

Do about a thousand loads of laundry.

Clean out Cave of Wonders (or Pit of Despair, as I think of it now.  It is a closet int he laundry room...big, deep and scarily full of junk.)

Make a nice dinner (maybe Sunday night.  We've had little time for family dinners as of late.Maybe a Thai curried doesn't sound that good now, but maybe it will tomorrow.)

Eat a hot dog.

Film the next reading of a Good Knight book and post it.

Plan party favors for book signing on June 7th.  (Thinking of making cookies...and having goodie bags..just don't know. But definitely must finish making book marks.)

Strategize the packing of the classroom.

Now THAT's a busy weekend!! I'm prepping for provincial testing in my classroom, so I have a few hours to spend there. And all that cleaning and laundry shows up on my list too. Have fun! :)

Stephanie Thornton said...

Whew! That's a long list, but I think you can safely chop painting the hallway. And I like the Cave of Wonders--you never know what you might find in there!

You should definitely see the new Pirates movie. We saw it last night. Captain Jack Sparrow just makes you feel happy. You know?

I tried to comment yesterday and Blogger put on its cranky face. Here's another attempt.
I sing tra-la with you for the most amibitious weekend list EVER.
If you paint a hallway, I'm going to hide in my Pit of Despair. How do you do it???
Go see Jack. A good time is predicted.

My last day of school was Thursday. So, naturally, I'll be at school for a few days this week! We had to cut way back on blogging this month just so we could dig ourselves out of our own pits of dispair - good luck on yours and bring on June!

I need a nap after reading your list. :D

I need to paint the walls too. Did you know there's a very good reason why you shouldn't use paint that's over five years old? ;)

I like your last item the best. Why is it that we like to clean pantries and fridges and backyards when life is the most hectic?

Why is May always so insane? I blinked and this month disappeared.

Kelly said...

I hope you got everything done!!! I took the last weekend of May to chillax and finish the book I was reading while away with the family.
I have you on my calendar on the 21st by the way!

I am tired just reading your list of to-dos! Can you believe I still have to do taxes? Yeah, I'm that far behind. But my reward - planting flowers. And that Pirate movie sounds like a must for me, to!
