Happy Independence Day to all of my fellow Americans! We’re throwing a party later this afternoon (thank GOODNESS our power is back!), so I have to get to work cleaning and cooking.
Check-in wise, I don’t have much to report. I’ve wrote 200 words yesterday and 400 this morning, so I’m only at 600 for the week, but my laptop didn’t have a charge and I spent my Monday lunch break blogging. Now that the power’s back, I think it’ll be easier to get into the swing of things. I’ve done well on the blogging part, though! And I’m very nearly ready to submit my application to the writing program. 🙂
Power-wise, I don’t think I’ve ever been more thankful to sleep in air conditioning as I was last night – I slept like a rock. A nice, cold rock. Now I have vacuuming to do (the cats were shedding like crazy, thanks to the heat) and general picking up – we have lots of candles to put away. We’ve replaced almost everything that we had in the fridge, but the freezer is still very empty. 🙁 Still, I’m just very thankful we have electricity, considering that it’s supposed to be another 100+ degree day and there are nearly 100,000 people in the DC area without power.
