I have had a stupendously productive day.

I finished the second ElectriCity chapter. I got the cover for BABA YAGA’S DAUGHTER and posted it. I delivered via email the stories I was supposed to and delivered two packages to the post office to be sent far far away. I finished the laundry. I got “Easy Pickings” ready to go up on Amazon and B&N.com. I walked 3 miles. I did some video game dancing with my adorable dancing toddler. I fixed the cross-posting problem from mizkit.com to LJ. I ordered the Rockabilly dress, because a friend of mine said “If Catie was a dress, she would be that dress. She Must Have It,” and that was so awesome I decided I could lose twenty pounds and rock it. I have sent a request to my Kickstarter patrons and have been overwhelmingly granted it, the results of which will be made visible early next week.

I am awesome. And I have a trillion other things to do this weekend, but damn, I done good today. (Actually, I really only have to do one thing this weekend. It’s just that it’s largeish in scope: the Kickstarter write-up and associated stuff. And, er, it appears I’m finally getting around to updating/perhaps redesigning cemurphy.net…)

This week I’ve been using the Kinect “Just Dance” game, which is ridiculously fun. It’s also, as hoped/anticipated, something I can do with Young Indiana’s, um, assistance. He loves to dance, so he’s much more tolerant of the “videos” than of any other form of exercise I might try–ie, I can do it for longer–and he gets to dance too, so he’s also having fun with it. I’ve also done a couple rounds on the “Your Fitness”, which actually has some pretty decent-seeming workouts, but what I’ve really learned this week is that I need to just go downstairs and do a workout first thing in the morning instead of trying to get a little work done first. So next week that’s what I’ll be trying to do. Because I have a really fantastic dress on the way and I’d like to fit into it sooner rather than later.

I have rushed out and bought "Easy Pickings".
Of course you need that dress and of course you will be able to fit it.
My cats love to help with exercise. We try to think of them as rather unpredictable extra weights.

I purchased Easy Pickins today and Faith was very sweet. It had an issue downloading (no idea what that was about) but happily it is on my netbook right now.
Also, you are going to love Just Dance 3. Better - so will your son. The characters on screen are fabulous!
They have This Is Halloween as a choice and the characters are Halloween based.
