In Which Things Return To Normal

Or whatever passes for that around here...

The Not-So-Great Shift Deluge of 2013 has ended. Mostly because I am an enormous brat evil diabolical genius who stayed late every single extra shift last week in order to bankrupt payroll. I figured Management can't use me if they can't afford me.

Which they can't.

So I have time off. Yipee!

And I know y'all must be excited, too, if for no other reason that I just might publish a post that doesn't contain the phrase "time off."  I've been very boring lately (or maybe just always), and for that, I apologize. I'll try to be more interesting in the future.

(What I imagine y'all are like right now.)

But as the future is not today, I'm going to bore you with my goals for the week. Looking at them now, I think I may have gone a little overboard with them all, but I just couldn't help myself. It's so exciting to not have to put "Go to day job" or "don't kill co-workers" on a to-do list. Anyway, here's what I've got:

1. Write out and MAIL Christmas cards.

2. Start Finish Christmas shopping.

3. Read over the crap words written last month for NaNoWriMo.

4. Do NOT delete ALL  words written last month for NaNoWriMo and make a plan of attack for moving forward.

5. Write and publish post about Mercenary Guy. 

6. Complete at least 3 30-minute work outs.

7. Play some Legend of Zelda. Because it's awesome.

8. Sleep. Because it's awesome.


I went completely overboard, right? Well, you know what they say...go big or go home.

Anyway, what's on your agenda this week?

  1. I'm so glad you threw Legend of Zelda in there. I don't know the game at all, but I appreciate the sentiment. We should do more things simply because they are awesome.

  2. You broke the system! YES! The mighty minions maul management's money!

    Enjoy your free time, and you know, you could always dream of playing Zelda and accomplish two things at once!

    1. I've been dreaming about playing Zelda for a while now. Hmmm...Look at me multi-task, everyone!

  3. Enjoy your time off, and good luck with your goals. I'm hoping to do a 500 word flash for a blog hop I haven't done for weeks, and maybe start on a 1500 word short.
    Oh, and finish getting ready for Christmas. Must remember to do that ...

  4. I'm taking a bit of a break over the next week or so - burned out and such. Planning on a lot of reading to reach my GoodReads goal, some Christmas related activities and just trying to figure out the best course for myself in the new year.

    Enjoy your time off - if anyone deserves it, it's you! :)

    1. I really want to put off figuring out my best course of action in the new year. My almost complete lack of progress from the current year makes me too sad.

      But I will enjoy this time off.

  5. Enjoy your time off! You deserve it. I feel like taking it easy for the rest of the year, since I've accomplished most of my writing and blogging goals. Maybe just watch a bunch of movies...

    1. If you've accomplished your writing and blogging goals, then I say you absolutely deserve to take it easy for the rest of the year.

    1. It's funny you mentioned dreams because just this morning I was thinking about how damn weird my dreams have been of late. So, so weird.

  7. Get some sleep this week and don't answer the phone no matter what.

    1. I threw the phone in the snow during the storm this weekend. We won't find it again until spring. *Insert Evil Laugh Here*

    1. Mercenary Guy actually has two names now. Well, three, if you count Mercenary Guy (which I do). I'm hoping to be posting about him on Wednesday. We'll see what happens.

  10. Enjoy your time off! That was a pretty brilliant plan to bankrupt them. I hoped you were grinning evilly when they realized they couldn't have you in the schedule like I'm imagining.

    1. I was doing that on the inside. When I am at work, I don't tend to make facial expressions. Anything other than an eyebrow raise is too much interaction these days.

  11. You're an evil genius. They'll never catch onto your plot. Unless they find your blog. And it's spelled out this week.

    Good luck with your goals. Without that pesky job distraction, you should be able to get a lot of gaming done. Plus writing or whatever.

    1. I think the fact that I still have a job to begin with is proof that they haven't found this blog.

      "You should be able to get a lot of gaming done. Plus writing or whatever." <--haha!

  12. Hooray for time off! Good luck with your goals.

    1. That sounds like an excellent agenda. I'm pretty sure I won't have next week off, but a girl can dream.

  14. Yea, time off before Christmas! You'd think management would catch on... Wait, I forgot who I was talking about for a second there...

  15. Whoo! 'Bout time you got some time off!

    Anyway, good luck with all your goals! It doesn't seem like you went overboard at all. But...sleep? What's that? :P

  16. What a great list! I concur on the playing Legend of Zelda part. After doing all that Christmas shopping and revising you'll need a break!

  17. To cram three weeks worth of work into one. So far, it's not working.

  18. Yay for having time off!! I'm working through edits this week - it's all about the writing for me. For once, I got my cards posted before the postal cut off date! I'm sure most years my cards arrive after Christmas :-(
