Back To Work

I let a lot of things slide while I was sick and now it's time to get back to them.  First on my priority list is getting my draft of Revelations polished for beta reading.  After that, I'll be submitting it to an editor and seeing about getting it published online. 

I've been flip-flopping a bit on this.  We have an agent coming in May to our ORWA meeting and she will be taking pitches.  Do I pitch to see what happens or do I just forge ahead with self-publishing?  Luckily I still have lots of time to make a decision.  I'm leaning towards just self-publishing at this point. 

Other priorities are getting things ready for my sister's wedding in July.  I have to book our hotel, see about getting a dress (or two, it's a three day event!).  If I can't find a dress, I'll have to make one. 

Another temptation on the craftwork front is possibly making myself a costume for Comicon this year.  I love getting dressed up and this is one of only two socially sanctioned opportunities to do it.  :)  If I do it, I've decided on Delenn from Babylon 5 (one of the few non-skimpy female costumes available).  It would be a lot of work but I think I'd enjoy myself.

I also have to start booking and planning for our trip to Disneyworld with Alex in the fall.  Nathan will stay behind with his grandparents (and he'll get his own trip in two years).  With only one child, we can make sure we don't have competing agendas leading to squabbles and tantrums.  If Alex wants to stay at the park, we'll stay at the park.  If he wants to go back to the hotel, we go back to the hotel.  I have to look into issues of how to feed him while we're there and what special activities to book.  He loves the Disney Princesses and the classic Disney characters, so I'll work with that.

I also need to look into getting someone else to replace Sally for the end of day pick up.  I'm glad she got the job but between her being gone and my parents being gone, it's going to be tough to coordinate things for the next few weeks.

I also have the usual rounds of activities, laundry and appointments to deal with.  It's going to be a challenge but, hey, that's what moms do.  (Apparently.)
