Gotta wear pants

This is my short weekend in the rotation. I only have Saturday and Sunday off. Nobody feels sorry for me, I’m pretty sure.

My goals for the weekend are two Lisa Burton interviews. I have one that’s finished, and just need to assemble and schedule it. Then I have one I need to work up the shtick for and send it to the author.

This actually eats up some time, but is well worth it.

I’d like to get that last micro piece written for my October thing. I have high hopes, but we’ll see how it goes.

That doesn’t seem like a big list, but I have to go out in the world on Saturday. Means I have to dress like an adult and do things. It takes a long time to do things in Boise. Everything is far from everything else.

I need another haircut. I’m so jealous of you bald guys sometimes.

It’s also time to get my truck serviced. This usually takes a couple of hours, but I can take my iPad to the work center and get some things done.

Today is Old What’s Her Face’s birthday, so we’re going out tomorrow night. All this doesn’t give me many hours for projects. That’s the big reason why I don’t have many goals.

I call my parents on Sundays, and I don’t know if I’ll have a lot of spare time.

If Sunday gives me some time, I need to get a post written for Story Empire. Beyond that, I’d like to start scheduling my micro pieces for Halloween. These aren’t goals, and I’m considering them as the bonus round. If I can manage the items up above the weekend will be a success. Anything else is gravy.

  1. I would love to have a four day week, Craig, and have an extra writing day. I can afford to work less but my work load is to big to allow for it. I have to train someone to help me again. I am tired of training people as they always leave for more lucrative pastures just when I get them remotely useful.

  4. Have a fun and productive weekend. Wearing adult clothes does tend to come with a sense of meh. Those pesky social norms really can suck the fun out of a day.

  7. Happy Birthday is in order. When I read these “What I gotta do,” posts I feel winded after. Good luck and hope all gets done.

  8. Dude, I’m sorry about your extra pants day in the rotation. I am taking a personal day on Monday! But, in the hair dept, you win, because it’s an evening of hair every time I get mine done. It takes hours. It’s home, order takeout, hair, bed.
    Happy Birthday to Old What’s Her Face! 😀 Enjoy that bit!

  11. Ha ha!!! I wonder how many people DON’T feel sorry for you for this post! Complaining about only having 2 days of the weekend off, AND about having hair?? I think your reader numbers just fell.. 😉😉😂😂 I hope your busy weekend goes well, and happy birthday to ole what’s her face! 😄

  12. You usually write these updates like you’re not doing all that much. I’m envious (and I bit tired) after reading all you’re going to do. I plan about this much and get…eh…1/4 of it done. Good on you! Have a great weekend and Happy Birthday to Mrs. C.S. 🙂

  13. My husband just had his Grand Cherokee in for service and inspection on Friday. The service end turned out being more than we hoped for, but at least a bunch of components are all sparkly new now.

    I cut my pay check job back to a 4 day work week in June and am now enjoying a 3-day weekend every week. I was suppose to use that extra day for writing, but so far the summer has stolen it from me for other needs.

    Happy birthday to your wife and wishing you muse-juice for that last October story!
