Home of a mother, wife, writer

You can tell it’s getting closer to Christmas. Well, not by looking outside, since it’s been about 60 degrees out this weekend. But, we had a Christmas party for the kids at the fire station Wednesday. Yesterday we had my niece’s birthday party and Christmas with my dad(Amazon gift card. Yes!) after that. Today is another Christmas party at the Moose Club. Then, I think we’re pretty much done until the week of Christmas.



I have most of the shopping done but absolutely none of the decorating. Haven’t even pulled the tree out of the closet yet. Guess I’ll have to actually do that this week(decorating is my least favorite part, which is why only the tree and stocking will likely go up).

Goals have been going pretty well this week, too.

  • Love Who You Love – finish backstories. Start Outlining. – Got this all done. Ready to start writing
  • Chasing the Ghost – finish 2nd round revisions. Start Polishing round. – finished 2nd round revisions. Not quite halfway through polishing though
  • Come Back Down – get to 6000 words – just a little past this
  • Read: Word-loss Diet – 45% – Got to this
  • Read: Finish Dirty Thoughts, Dash of Peril(Lori Foster), Fix You(Mari Carr), A Harry Situation(Kristy K James), & The Iron Daughter(Julie Kagawa) – finished all of these and started Bloodlore (Krista Walsh)
  • Knit: Brimmed Hat finished this.

No color coding this week because we still haven’t made it home today. Christmas party at the Moose Club and elections at fire department. Except about time elections were supposed to start, got a call to help a neighboring department with a fire. So got started about 4 hours late. So posting from my phone.

It was nice enough we went to the park for a bit after the party. And we had a little shadow.

Goals for next week:
• Love Who You Love – 5000 words
• Chasing the Ghost – finish polishing
• Come Back Down – get to 7000 words
• Read: Word loss Diet – 70%
• Read: Bloodlore (Krista Walsh), Sparks Fly (Mari Carr), Fey Touched(Erin Zarro), Unbreak Me(Lexi Ryan), Only Mine (Susan Mallery)
• Crochet: Twist’N Shout Hat
• Loom: Hat

  1. Busy time with Christmas and family. Love that pic with the kitty cat. I also like your no-nonsense way of listing out the goals for the coming week — as well as how you balance writing with craft. Have a great week!
