For today’s WiP Wednesday, I thought I’d steal a play from my dear friend Elana’s playbook and report some interesting stats for my summer break. Now these are not 100% accurate, as I really am not anal enough to keep track of this ( okay, I AM anal enough, but I didn’t keep stats all summer…so I guessed. But they are really good guesses!)
Are you ready? Here we go:
# of times I went to the beach – 6 ( I am hoping to squeeze in a few more – I mean seriously, only 6?)
# of times I went swimming – over 30
# of impromtu BBQ’s we had – at least 15 (let me tell you – that’s a lot of ‘surprise’ BBQ’s!
# of trips to the library to get books or hide – over 30 – thank goodness for not one, but two great libraries
# of books read – 15 – no that is not a typo, I read almost almost 3 books a week
# of times I wrote at Starbucks – more than 20 ( I split my time between the library and Starbucks)
# of Venti Unsweetened Green Teas and/or Venti Skinny Vanilla Latte’s I drank – more than 40….yeah, don’t even get me started on this obsession!
# of hours spent deep cleaning the house – over 20 (and I still have stuff on my to-do list)
# of lunch dates, parties, and other fun social things I attended – 8 (strangely low,don’t you think)
# of movies I saw (in the theatre and in the park) -15 ( gotta love the free movies in the park!)
# of hours I waited to see the midnight showing of Harry Potter – 8 (and it was SO MUCH FUN!)
# of words written in the past 6 weeks – over 24K
# of pages edited – over 100
# of times I “vented” to my best on-line bud because I was frustrated with something writing related – daily!
# of online buds I met in RL this summer – 1 terrific one (but I plan to meet more in the future…can you say ROAD TRIP?)
Whew – I guess it was a pretty busy summer after all.
What have you been up to? Any interesting facts to report?
