Tomorrow I return to a semi-normal schedule with the kids going back to school and I to work. While I’m feeling the pressure to be ready with my research and novel prep by November 1, I do feel good about the progress that I made during my long weekend.
I spent a lot of Thursday, Friday and today working on research. I have now made it through most of my research materials. There are a few very specific questions I have and need to look those up, but at least I know what I’m looking for. I have no doubt that I spent way more than five hours on novel prep this week and it shows with all the notes I’ve got jotted down.
Saturday was spent with my kids on a Fall Break field trip to the Chickasaw Cultural Center in Sulphur, OK. It was so much fun! I have some thoughts and pictures coming soon on that trip. We happened to go during their Fall Festival and on an absolutely gorgeous Oklahoma fall day. Quality family time had by all!
My husband and I have synchronized our alarm clocks, so first thing in the morning we will be doing our walk. I need to remember to dress warmly. It’s supposed to actually freeze tonight.
