Sunday Update – November 10, 2019

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

I went to bed last night feeling like I had an easy Sunday and then remembered that I never updated my blog. Oops. I should really write these things on Saturday and schedule them for Sunday morning.

We had an interesting week around here.

Monday, Lulu had her vet checkup. The vet feels that she's thriving and doing well, but she has a parasite from eating poop. Yes, the dog loves to eat her own and other animals' poop. It's totally gross. We're trying to stop her but she's quick. Anyway, now she's on medicine for that. The good news is that she's sleeping through the night! We put her in her bed in her crate at 10pm and she sleeps through to 6:30/7:00am. She would probably sleep later if certain children slept later. She only gets antsy when she knows someone is up.

Tuesday was a half day for Election Day. My youngest had tutoring in the afternoon and then I took the kids to a Seeing Eye Dog presentation offered by the Girl Scouts in the evening. It was really informative and the dog was super chill. We also learned a few training tricks we hope to put to use with Lulu!

Wednesday was back to a full day of school. My oldest stayed home because of an upset stomach, but the day proceeded onward from there. My cousin came to walk with me, and the cleaning ladies came. Then I had the chiropractor and acupuncture. In the afternoon, I had to take the kids to tennis.

Then we had Thursday and Friday off from school. This happens every year as there's a statewide teacher's conference that takes place these two days in November. Usually we go on vacation. Last year we were at Universal and many years before this we went to Charleston. This year we stayed home because of the new dog. We had some playdates with friends, baked, and just hung out through the weekend. I published HIGH FLYGHT on Friday, and I tried to just ignore my sales and enjoy the day.

Progress is coming along on Flyght 5! I passed the 40k mark on this book and I think I know where all the pieces to the puzzle now go. I just need to stay on top of my daily word counts so that I can finish this by the end of November. Then I'd like to take December and January to write the last book in the series! Yes! The last book will be Book 6. Originally I had planned on it being 8-9 books, but 6 books better suits my story arc. It's a good thing I hadn't bought more covers than six!

What else happened this week?

We had our driveway repaved and this guy was out there ripping it up at 9am with a cigar hanging out of his mouth. Lol. He's a super nice guy and they did an awesome job.

If you like blue cheese (I do), then you should get this popcorn from Whole Foods. It's sooooo good.

Lulu continues to brighten our days with her fun personality. She loves sticks, napping, and barking at the local deer.

My computer took 15 minutes to boot up the other day, and it scared the living daylights out of me. It's approaching 7 years old, though, so after a discussion with my husband, we ordered me a new MacBook Air! It'll be here sometime late next week, I think. Then the fun begins as I port over to a new computer.

I published HIGH FLYGHT on Friday and treated myself to a nice breakfast to celebrate.

This tree had the most beautiful leaves this week!

And finally, here's the latest progress on Flyght 5! It was great to cross that 40k mark. I believe this book will be closer to 70k when it's done, which will make it the longest book in the series so far. I expect the last book in the series to clock in around 80k.

Have a great week everyone!
