What happened: Right now I’m just writing out a detailed synopsis, then I’ll go back and flesh out each scene. Synopsis-wise, I’m up to the part where the monster reveals itself.

UFYH: I watered the plants, and added some moisture to the turtle’s habitat, and sat our poor, wilted snake plant outside in the hopes that sunlight will perk it back up. I need to vacuum and do more laundry, but those will probably have to wait until later in the week. I need to go get dressed so we can take Sasha back to the vet to see if her new meds are helping.

Later: After the vet, I need to deal with e-mail, then start building the custom WordPress theme I designed for a client last week. This evening, I’ll cook up a big batch of salmon patties for dinner, then we’ll watch the season finale of Walking Dead. Still haven’t watched Doctor Who yet. We’ll either watch that or start the second season of Justified before we head to bed.
