Writing Woes ~ Spring Break ~ Home Repair Wish List
It appears I need to do more diligent planning, to create more uninterrupted writing time in my day. The other day I only got 247 words finished in a short story, in less than 30 minutes.
I feel like the Mom and the Muffin story - one thing secretly blindsides me into doing something else. Or could I be inadvertently procrastinating?
I'm not giving up. I worked all my life for everyone else, and I deserve to do something that I have wanted to do for a long time, which has been delayed more and more, over the years.
I just need some cheer leaders to cheer me on. Got any pom poms?
The weather is up in the 40's, with high's expected in the 60's this Friday. Spring break is over, and the kids are back in school today. Hubby took the entire week off for vacation time as well. He booked a room at a local hotel, and let the kids swim from check in to check out. It was their last fling before school started. It think they enjoyed it. Even the older ones drove over later after goat milking, and had some fun. This is about the only "vacation" the kids get every winter, other than summer camping.
Our Spring Extreme Clean continues. We have started a list of much needed repairs and a wish list - new front screen door (metal hinges are broken), and new front room ceiling fan (broken and light fixture is worthless).
Yesterday, Hubby and I drove to Bass Pro and let the younger girls try out a bow. We earned $200.00 in gift cards from our health insurance (yes, they took away our co-pays last year, but gave us gift cards). We decided to use the cards to purchase one bow, some arrows, and a target. They have already been out practicing. One daughter may yet seek out an archery program (or team), if we can locate one. The nice part about this bow, is that even I can use it. It was the last "fun" thing we did before school started again.
Speaking of school, one already called and has forgotten her gym clothes.
