Happy Friday!

I’m sooo close. Just trying to get the last wrap up on Obsession done then I can clean it up. So close.  But I’m still debating some things at the very end. Plus I’m distracted by all the pretty colors developing on my foot and calf. Man I sprained that sucker. Probably got a few little tears in there too but it should heal.

Of course, normal people would get an x-ray.  Or you know, see a doctor.  But why ruin the fun of guessing :-)

Before anyone really worries, I’m sure it’s just a sprain.  Seriously, I can move and rotate my foot without pain.  And it doesn’t hurt when I’m not walking on it. So it’s all good.

So this weekend, I’m working! If the weather cooperates I’ll go in the pool with Wizard and I’ll probably bake something too. But we are looking forward to a quiet, relaxing weekend.

What are your plans for the weekend?

    Oh I can just picture all those pretty colors on your foot and calf. You did more than a sprain if colors are coming out. But I agree that if you can walk and move it around it should heal fine. But do rest it in the pool this weekend :).

    I’m sure you’ll get OBSESSION all put together and the end will be perfect.

    Hubs wants to deep fry a turkey Monday. The two younger boys are working. We might get PeeWee and his mom and dad to come over. You say fried turkey and the eldest is there in a flash ;).

    I hope every one has a very nice Labor Day with rest and relaxation :).

    Today I am going to wrap all my friends at the office in bubble wrap. Before 9am this morning one fell and hurt her wrist another is limping because of her knee. I don’t want them to get hurt anymore today besides it would really be fun to listen to all that popping if either of them fell again. :lol: :lol: I am such a bad friend. Friday office humor.

    Jen I hope you get your nice weather. If the weather man is right I will be looking at rain all weekend and into Labor Day. I had hoped for some nice cool fall temperatures and time for out side projects. Well see.

    Happy 3 day weekend everyone.

    I’ll be working on edits and revisions of SEASON OF THE WITCH and maybe doing a little procrastinating by pulling out some of my photos of New Orleans and putting text from THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC on them for teasers to go on my facebook author page. And college football. Baseball. Maybe I’ll do a brisket for Monday. Or not. :lol:

    Keep your foot up and iced as you can, Jen. You need one of those boots to wear. Just sayin’…! And you’ll get OBSESSION figured out. I can hear the wheels turning all the way over here. ;)

    Viki, are you inviting the rest of us over? I LOVE deep fried turkey! :D And Kat, I don’t blame you. There’s just something about bubble wrap popping. :twisted:

    Have a great weekend, everyone!

    You’re not alone Jen, unless I’m dying, I don’t go to Drs. either – odd that every job I’ve had since college has been in the medical profession ’cause I have severe ‘white coat syndrome’ ;)

    Anyway, not much planned for this weekend – I have laundry, a beta read to finish (1/3 to go!!!) and I have some editing on my own story to do. Nothing like realizing 2/3 of the way through, you need to change a character a bit … ah well, I’m actually looking forward to it. Did I mention I have just under 70,000 words !!!

    I think working out the last few things of your ending sounds exciting BTW – going through it with your characters is the only way to get it right !

    Viki, I hope things went well with the claims adjuster–I was thinking of you.

    Deep fried turkey sounds yummy! Even better would be having Pee Wee have with his parents :-)

    I felt a or muscle/tendon tear when I did it, but it must be a small one or I’d be in agony. So i’m resting it as best I can. It’ll be okay.

    Kat, you’re not a bad friend, I laughed too! But I’m sorry two of them got hurt. I hate it when my friends get hurt too.

    Hope you get your outside project weather. It’s humid and miserable here but supposed to improve over the weekend.

    Silver, shhhh! BLB already told me I need the boot when he saw my foot/ankle and I’m not listening. Wizard finally got me to wear an ace bandage, what more do people want? LOL! I’m serious though, I have full rotation and am not in pain unless I put specific pressure on it.

    Yay you, so close on SEASON OF THE WITCH! I hope if you to put in on your FB page I see it in my feed. I just don’t check my feed enough lately.

    Have a great weekend!

    Wow, Ban, you’re doing great on your WIP! I’m proud of you!

    With you on doctors. The exception is my RA doctor, he’s just so practical.

    Hope you have a great weekend!

    LOL, you sound like me, Jen. If it ain’t hanging off or bleeding, it don’t need a doctor. It’s like the other day when I tried to wash the ‘dirt’ off my big toe only to find it was all bruised. I think I broke it, but I can’t think of exactly what I did. :shrug: Not the first broken toe I ever had and won’t be the last.

    Ooo, pool time sounds so much better than baking time. It’s too hot to bake. Get those edits finished and get thyself into some cool water.

    Plans for this weekend? Relaxing. There’s not a lot left to do on the yard until the plants I ordered come in – looks like October. I could clean, but meh. I know I’ll do some writerly work, but the editing task ahead is daunting, so I’m avoiding it. ;o)

    B.E., on no on your toe! So sorry. That can be really painful and annoying.

    I’m baking cookies just because. I’m working too, but definite pool time this weekend. I don’t think I can swim but I can hang out in there.

    Don’t avoid editing too long (I know that feeling!) but some down time is always a good thing! Have a relaxing weekend!
