(as written on Saturday Night)
Watching: Last night we watched the new Star Trek which we got for Christmas. It was a repeat for me but a new watch for some in the group. Anyway, did I say I love that movie? I do. I love it. This week I also caught up on Vampire Diaries and Reign. Oh boy. And tomorrow... Downton Abbey! And soon... Sherlock! And American Idol which I think will finally be good again with Harry Connick Jr.! Don't you think?
Reading:Today I've been reading Last Train to Paris for a TLC blog tour. It has slow moments and good moments. I'm not sure how I'll be reviewing it. But am anxious to get to my list of Bout of Books reads this week. I plan to read some awesome ones.
Writing: I'm determined to make this happen this year. I want to go to conferences and form a writing group and get the guts to keep going to critique groups and have ideas and remember them and learn from people and be observant and find time and not not NOT get discouraged. This week, I started rewriting my first chapter of my Nano book, totally from scratch. And I made my character a little more grouchy and a little less perky. Still trying to decide if I should include the church scene. I really liked my church scene dang it.
Blogging: Gearing up for a Mini Bloggiesta this month (Jan. 25-26)! Are you in? We have a new look over at the main blog. Go check it out. Cool buttons too. Besides that, there's tons of author events this month and my author stalking tendencies are going berserk. I want to go to everything.
Eating: Nothing of note. The Christmas crap lingers, but is almost gone. Yay for that. I need to make a menu plan. Menu plans are good and make life go so much smoother. It has to happen.
Crafting: I'm also determined to craft more this year. Back to quilting I say. I need to finish my hexes. What happened to my enthusiasm for that particular project, eh? Ah, there's so much to do!
- Let me just say if I get through this year it will be a miracle. One (mostly likely two actually) weddings, a 30th high school reunion, a parent 50th anniversary celebration, and the possibility of both my grandparent's funerals. Not sure if they'll hold on much longer. Anyway, the thought of all that makes me nervous. "Wake me up when it's all over."
- I wonder if I could lose 50 pounds in two months.
- A new year of church starts tomorrow and I'll get a whole new crop of teenagers to teach.
- My three college kids go back to school Monday. Let the stress begin.
