Today my husband and I did our errands apart. I probably could have gotten all of my stuff done while he was sleeping in this morning but I wouldn't have gotten to spend so much time surfing. I took my old laptop in to get the keyboard replaced and some other upgrades done before November 1st. *does a little happy dance* I've been wanting to do some upgrades for a while but it seems like something has always come up or it just didn't seem all that important. I should have a price quote in a few days.
I worked on my Landmark Goals for NaNoWriMo. Here is the current list which is subject to change between now and November 1st.
5000 Word Mark = Big bowl of home made popcorn.
10000 Word Mark = A little helping of Jeni's ice cream.
15000 Word Mark = Writing magazine subscription.
20000 Word Mark = Watch two bad/teen movies without guilt.
25000 Word Mark = Order NaNoWriMo t-shirt.
30000 Word Mark = 1 - 2 Hours of online Texas Hold'Em.
35000 Word Mark = Treat from Mary Kay. Could be a luxury item or a night of pampering.
40000 Word Mark = Sample snacks from Short North Piece of Cake, The French Loaf or Mozart's.
45000 Word Mark = Book or CD.
50000 Word Mark = Dinner at The Top.
The timing of the dinner will be good because it will happen just before my husband's big event at work. It's from December 1st to the 4th and we'll probably need a night to unwind afterwards.
I am wondering whether or not I should setup a portable writing space or something. I don't really have a set place to write except for in bed. After watching SNL I was going to review my current plot outlines but realized that my husband went to bed already. It's a bit rude to go in there and wake him up just so I can grab something from my side of the bed. Heh, if I get part of the dining room table clear I could use it! When he and I were in school together (same classes too!) we'd sit at the dining room table and work on our Visual Basic homework.
