But the real reasons for this entry are twofold. One is to announce that last night at 10 PM, I finished the first draft (yet again) of This World We Live In, with its fabulous, never to be revealed, ending. I worked a lot later than I thought I would because my friend Cynthia dropped by with homebaked hamentashen (yum yum) and my cousin Ellen called for some social chit chat, and American Idol announced not only who made it through semi-final group 3, but also who'd been invited back for tonight's wildcard round (go Anoop go).
And secondly, I wrote a new blog entry with a little discussion of what I may or may not change thanks to my fabulous new ending over at thirdmoonbook, for any of you who are interested.
This afternoon, I bought a new vacuum cleaner, which I had every intention of trying out tomorrow morning, but I'm going to have to take my mother for a semi-emergency visit to the dentist instead. Teeth were not made to last 97 years. After I get her back home, I'll read B3 with pen in hand to make notes about where changes are required. Or maybe I'll clean my apartment and save B3 for Sunday. Either way, I'll make the changes and do the final manuscript polishing next week, and send it off before I go off to Los Angeles for the World Figure Skating Championship on March 22 (go Jeremy Abbott go).
And somewhere between now and then, I'll tell you all about my redecorating!
