Spring is springing...

The trees are beginning to bloom and my back yard is almost a foot tall again. Time to get the kiddos on yard duty. We're supposed to get rain today and tomorrow and I wish it would just fall already. We need it and it suits my mood (gloomy). Of course that means the grass will grow even more. :(

The writing is going well. I wrote 400+ words last night, which is double my M-F daily goal, so yay me. Of course, it's bare bones, mostly dialogue with a random thought here and an action tag there. But that's okay.

My online class is going well too. I need to do/post the assignment for this week. It's on my to do list for today.

Another hectic weekend coming up--Jazz on the Hill, dinner and silent auction on Friday and a stadium event to work on Saturday and then visitation with my daughter on Sunday. Her birthday is Friday and this will be the first one we've celebrated with her in three years.

Speaking of birthdays, I've decided and informed my family that my birthday will now be celebrated in conjunction with Mother's Day. We only have to eat out or cook special once, but I still get twice the presents. June is a crazy month in our house as the men prepare to leave for the fireworks store. And for the past three years they've also participated in a paintball event known as D-Day in Oklahoma and which generally takes place the same weekend as my birthday. So as of this year I'm not missing out anymore.

And a reminder for those participating in Black March--it starts Thursday.

And last but not least, my friend and critique partner, Clover's latest book is now available in paperback. It's called Highland Sorcery and is a lot of fun. If you like hot Scottish men with magical abilities, you're bound to enjoy it. It's available for the Kindle and the Nook as well, if you're so inclined, but I'll let you search that out yourself. :)

Wow. Busy girl. I think maybe NOT a band booster next year? ;)

Congrats, AWESOME on the word count!
I wrote about 800 today myself and that's coolbeans, but I am stuck on both things I was attempting...the letter R for my game and a section for the Round Robin for my other writing group cuz I had to open my mouth and say I would step in when someone bailed. *sigh* I have to have it in by tomorrow, so I would LOVE to finish it tonight. Trying to get inspired.

I can't wait to get Clover's book in my hands. ;)

Your b-day is near Mother's day? Arghhh. May through June we have our anniversary, Mom's day, and then my birthday. Wish we would have thought through those better...

And thanks for the shout-out!
