Hardwood and JaNoWriMo

Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then. ~Katherine Hepburn

DH has decided (dear heavens...) that since we have 8 boxes of hardwood left over from the project in the foyer thingie, we should hardwood my new office. I don't disagree with him, exactly. The carpet is a mess (truthfully, the carpet in our house was "five year" carpet and we've had it for almost ten years ((!)), which is one reason we're replacing it all) and the hardwood will look lovely... except...

Except, I'm finally getting it all set up in there. I've unpacked boxes, filled up four books shelves, hung Dru's quilt on the wall... and I dread undoing all of that (especially the bookshelves). OTOH, it would be something to keep him busy the next set of days he has off (this coming Th-F-S-S) or the next set (the following Th-F-S-S).


Okay folks, JaNoWriMo is a go! I'm pretty certain I have all of y'all's email addresses, so I'll shoot a joint email off today at some point to discuss the deets. Dru asked if non-writers would be able to join whatever group we have in order to cheer us on, so that's one thing to bring under discussion (though I'm certain all of us will discuss our amazing progress on our respective blogs as well).

This is who I have down as probably going to participate (feel free to tell your friends, the more the merrier):

and... me!!



You Are Scissors

Sharp and brilliant, you can solve almost any problem with that big brain of yours.

People fear your cutting comments - and your wit is famous for being both funny and cruel.

Deep down, you tend to be in the middle of an emotional storm. Your own complexity disturbs you.

You are too smart for your own good. Slow down a little - or you're likely to hurt yourself.

You can cut a paper person down to pieces.

The only person who can ruin you is a rock person.

When you fight: You find your enemy's weak point and exploit it.

If someone makes you mad: You'll do everything you can to destroy their life

Muh-ha-ha.... don't make me mad! LOL...

It'll be such a nice floor! I wish I had an office. I have a corner of my dining room aka Grand Central.

I'm ready for January!!!

Dru said...

I think the flooring would look nice in your office. Go for it!

You Are Rock

Powerful and overbearing, you intimidate people with your presence.

People know they can't push you around, and they respect that.

Deep down, you are calm, confident, and unmovable.

You take everything pretty seriously, and you think deeply about all aspects of your life.

You tend to feel smothered by paper people.

You don't mind crushing the spirit of a scissors person.

When you fight, you: Use all of your strength

If someone makes you mad: You're likely to throw something at them

Interesting...not really all of me.

Have a good Tuesday.

I know Project Man is making you crazy, but at least he DOES things and doesn't just sit on the couch hogging the only working computer. Ahem.

If you have room, add me to JaNoWriMo. :) I'd love to join. :)

I'll try the jaNo...

All this family stuff is really taking away from any writing time, even if I'm NOT getting a nifty new floor.

I'd better mind my Ps & Qs around you...

You Are Paper

Crafty and creative, you are able to adapt freely to almost any situation.
People tend to underestimate you, unless they've truly seen what you are capable of.
Deep down, you're always scheming and thinking up new plans. Your mind is constantly active.
You are quite capable of anything you dream of. You can always figure out a way to get what you want.

You can wrap a rock person up in your sheet of trickery.

A scissor person can sneak up and cut you to pieces.

When you fight: No one can anticipate your next move

If someone makes you mad: You'll attack them mercilessly when they're unprepared

Like this is any surprise: I'm scissors, too. ;)

I did my whole house in hardwood... and I am SO glad. It will be worth it when you don't ever have to curse another carpet stain.

Brandy said...

I keep telling you that your DH is welcome to come visit....especially next year when we put in our hardwoods. *G* Sorry he'll be disrupting your office, but it WILL keep him busy.

I hope your day goes smoothly!

That's wonderful about your new hardwood floors. I'd love to replace our old kitchen carpet with a hardwood floor. Hubby doesn't want to since we are selling our house, but I think a new floor would help sell the house.

Great about January. I have another book to write. IT's not due until May, but the proposal is due in Feb. And I'd love to just bang the entire thing out when we do this!
