Catchin' Up

Not counting this horrid cold I have, here's a few things to show you what's been going on in my (hubby & my) life:

  • Traveled in February close to 2 thou miles
  • Enjoying-altho it's kinda gloomy-the rainy day
  • Lots of wind, too
  • Felt good enough yesterday to totter outside and peer over the bank to see where hubby wants to spade up a garden
  • Even grabbed some clippers and trimmed a few overgrown vines back. Not many, too weak, but a few

  • Slept, slept, slept for the last three days; thus--drumroll, please, little sleep last night. Couldn't get comfortable. Nose stopped up--both sides, pillow uncomfortable, clothes uncomfortable, yada, yada, yada
  • Traveled in March almost 2500 miles
  • Co-cooked for a youth convention. Fun and not hard at all. Fixed some of my favorite foods. That always helps
  • Enjoyed seeing my Bradford Pears out in white furry bloom
  • Enjoyed seeing my first blossoms of the spring

  • Redbuds and daffidils and hyacinths threatening to boost into flowery song anyday now
  • Hating to hear that the temp will be in the forties for the next few days. Could it be ole weatherman will be wrong? Let's hope
  • Too tired and drug down to do much serious writing, but hopefully will be better now. Got lots of stuff to get moving on
  • Prospects ahead for manuscripts
  • Enjoyed emails from agent

  • Critiqued manuscript partials from partners
  • Met with critique partner
  • Contemplating ACFW writing conference
  • Making plans for two interviews: you've heard of them: Tiffany Colter with her great blogs and Linore Rose Burkard. Good friends
  • Made a new resolve. I think I'll stick with it

Enough for now. Gotta work, gotta work, gotta work. If I chant it enough, maybe it'll soak in and my still shaking hands and brain will respond. Laugh.

All of us failed to match our dreams of perfection. So I rate us on the basis of our splendid failure to do the impossible. ~ William Faulkner

Sorry to hear you have a cold. I hope you get to feeling better and I'm really looking forward to our interview together.

Wow, sounds like you had it pretty bad. You don't complain unless it's bad!
Take care of yourself!!
