Home of a mother, wife, writer

This is the one weekend we don’t have much going on until after Labor Day, I think. Next weekend, we have husband’s company picnic Saturday, the weekend after that, he’s going on an ATV poker run Saturday and we’re having the girl’s birthday party on Sunday. I’m not sure about after that, but I’m sure there’s something. And Labor Day weekend is the boy’s birthday.

Yesterday we went to a local parade, it’s mostly just the local fire companies that come out(it’s part of the town’s Fireman’s festival). Then, we got dinner and groceries. Today we just have church then home again.

This week was a pretty good one. I got words in, and even finished a couple goals. I think I’m going to keep working in 10 minute bursts. I also may go back to working on all the projects. My characters do so hate waiting on me, and there are so many of them in my head.
