I've seen other people do this, so I'm going to give it a shot, maybe it'll work. To do list for this weekend:
HOUSE-RELATED: (my Mom is coming Thursday)
*Bedroom - vacuuming left
*Living Room - vacuuming left
*Christmas Tree - Put together, lit, still needs ornaments
SCHOOL-RELATED: (school also gets out Thursday, with two programs between)
*Grade 3 sets of papers
*Finish yuletide fic
--OMG, done! 8,875 words.
*Begin and hopefully finish 12days_of_clois fic -- which has a plot bunny and even a story banner! -- but not even one word typed
Encouragement is welcomed, but please no details (not even the fandom) on the oh-so-secret yuletide project from my betas in comments.
When the crazy is over, I promise to come and review the stories I've not reviewed. And other than the one promise I made earlier today, I probably can't accept any beta jobs this weekend, either. Wish me luck!
