So I promised to post pictures. Since I've talked about our remodeling and my new space (Janna's Writing and Reading Nook - just saying it makes me squee!), I thought I'd show you the progress. Here's the space from the top of the stairs. To my left is the master bath, behind me the master bedroom.
And here, at the left side of the balcony, is where my floor lamp and big floofy (yes, floofy) reading chair will go. Maybe, just maybe, in another few weeks I can show you completed pictures. Yippee!
I'm writing the next installment of my column. (For those who may not know, I write a humor column with a motherhood theme. It appears in a local paper, quarterly.) My topic this go round is being an embarrassing mom. You know, the standard stuff, like licking your finger to wipe chocolate from your daughter's cheek. In the middle of her birthday party. When she's surrounded by friends and family. Got any good anecdotes to share? Surely I'm not the only embarrassing mom these days... *
In yesterday's post, I mentioned I would talk about feelin' the burn today. You see, I have this rash-- No, no. Wrong topic. I was going to tell you I've really been feeling that desire to push myself with my writing. I've admittedly slacked off recently, what with the end of summer, and having queries out but not being ready to send another batch. But it's time to move ahead, seeking my goals. I'm going to research more agents today and send another few queries. And I've got to move ahead with the other writing projects I keep talking about. After all, I'm not going to find what I'm looking for if all I do is think about writing. It's got to be about doing.
And that's it, folks. I think I'm gonna go try my new English Toffee cappuccino mix (I have my doubts since it's a mix). I'll let you know how it is.
Have a great day!
* I haven't really done that. Yet.
