Um, I thought we had to do 13 short story critiques in all. I'm not feeling optimistic about getting mine done...maybe tomorrow I can read four revised short stories of ours and nine by others? And write critiques? And put up the Christmas tree so yall can see it on Tuesday? Go to church and to eat with my husband's family for his mother's birthday?? Shoot, all that on my "day of rest"--what a joke....
