Yep. Today is the last day of our winter/holiday break. The past few days I've been breaking the kids and myself back into a 'normal' bedtime/morning routine. Still, tomorrow morning is going to be a shocker to all of us. I'll probably add an extra scoop of coffee grounds into the coffee maker tonight.

We always think the holidays are so busy but as they come to an end I start to mentally prepare for the busy-ness to come. In addition to taking down all the decorations (I've been gathering them all under the Christmas tree which I will conquer tomorrow while the kids are in school) we are preparing for the livestock show.

I still have to work on the notebook for Farmer, Jr and his deer blind project (sharing the process and incorporating pictures that demonstrate it).

Luckily, we get a week off for the show (even though we are participating we don't have to worry about homework too).

I didn't (or at least haven't yet) make any New Year's resolutions this year. Although, I am assessing my time and what changes I might make in my schedule (that being make a regular schedule with things I want to do actually on the weekly calendar).

Some of those would be to exercise regularly (I know, cliche) and read a little more. [I made a last minute goal in November to read 50 books in 2011 and I was at 30 or so. I think I made 40 if I include a beta that isn't listed in goodreads yet.] I'm starting 2012 with a goal of 50 books. As soon as I finish this post I'm going to hit the treadmill and finish a kindle book as my first of 2012. Only 49 to go :-D

I'm still waiting on feedback on my graded (final) writing assignment for the writing course I had been taking. My instructors feed back could make or break how I see my level of creative writing and to what depth I will continue to pursue it.

I do have several short stories from the course that I just need to polish and then actually submit to a few children's magazines. That would be awesome. Totally.

Pretty much though, I'll spend the next 20 weeks or so trying to get from Monday to Friday with the kids grades in high standing - and from intersession to intersession in the count down to summer.

My thoughts may seem a little all over the place because they kind of are - and I'm having to monitor the kids on the Wii (love-hate and all). Plus, I'm blogging from the blogger app and it is kind of restricting. Still, at least I CAN blog. :-D [I *heart* my iPad.]

Happy Monday!

Hey miss, long time no see. Thank you for visiting and the kind words on my post! I have one thing to say do not let a grade ( a useless letter LOL) deter you from your goals. If you want to be a writer never let anyone stop you from that. WE are out worse critics!
