A Lousy Labor Day Weekend Ahead
Tomorrow I have to get up before it's light so I can be at traffic school by 7:45 half an hour away. I will probably sleep through it, since I normally rise at nine after working until one or two the night before. Obviously, I will miss my best writing hours tonight trying to sleep so I can rise earlier tomorrow. I probably won't be able to, but I have to try.
I got my traffic ticket, the first one in over 48 years of driving, on May 15, and I have to get this last part of my punishment over with. My husband is coming, too. He got the last of his many tickets a couple of weeks ago. Were it not for him, I'd probably do the whole thing online. At least the test is open book. Perhaps I'll read the book tonight to help me get sleepy. That way I'll quickly be able to flip to the information I need.
So, as far as writing goes, most of tonight and all of tomorrow are shot. That means I'll lose momentum on the web work I'm just getting up to speed on. I have six pages of my new website done. I spent hours yesterday making the appropriate changes to a lens on My Ten Favorite and Most Used Cookbooks to adapt it to a page on my bookselling site. Since most of the books are out of print, I am using affiliate links on that page, and I had to plug my own account number into all the links. I removed one book and added some Zazzle products. It doesn't look as good as a Squidoo lens, but it will do the job. I think I'd rather find a way to tie the other recipes I want to post into some other format. Maybe this one. They really don't need affiliate links. These recipes are too short and sweet to go onto HubPages. But they are easy and evergreen.
I'll miss all of you tomorrow. I'll probably be too tired to get much work done when I come home, but I may be able to read your work. I may not be able to comment on all of it. Sometimes I read something and my mind just doesn't find anything to write in response. So forgive me if I just read. Unless it was all about sports, I probably read it and you just won't know it.
