I think I've figured out where I can lose a chunk of pages to help with my word count. Whew. That's a relief. I struggled with one scene today thinking if I used it, there were some repetitive elements of a later scene, so the later scene can be scrapped. That should save me at least 10,000 words and hopefully still have everything gel together.
I also am making good progress with my Christmas gifts. I'm trying to knit a lot of my gifts yet again, but this year they are all relatively small projects that can be done fairly quickly. Except for socks. For some reason I have a hard time knitting socks quickly. I don't know why. I think the whole heel thing freaks me out and I start procrastinating when I get to that part. Which makes no sense, because once I do it, I'm thinking, what was the big deal? But anyhoo, they are getting done and I'm feeling a bit better about that.
My podmates survived another day. All was relatively quiet so there was no bloodshed. I did have a hideous headache though and we were all out of Tylenol. I volunteered to drive to the mall to pick some up at the drug store. Bad move. Futureshop next door had Batman Begins on sale for $21. I broke down and made the purchase with my leftover grocery money and the few bucks spending money I had left to do me until next pay. I like to call that - creative accounting. Or chaotic accounting. I'm not sure which would better describe it. Probably the latter, but I'll stick with my denial because I have a new Christian Bale DVD. Watch my of dahnce of joy!
On the plus side, I managed to buy it without putting it on my Visa! It's my new motto - if I can't pay for it with cash, I can't have it. But now that I do, it will be my entertainment for the next week and a half until pay day rolls around again. I think I'm okay with that.
