You know you've been spending too much time on Twitter when you begin to think in 140 characters or less. It makes blogging difficult.

It's Monday again (funny how that happens every week!). There's not much to report over here. Well, besides the fact that I managed to get my daughter in blue shorts and a blue bow today. I know! It's like the apocalypse happened!

Other than that, I'm knee deep in revision two of the manuscript I'd put aside some time ago. Imagine my surprise when I realized it was actually pretty good. I'm changing the voice up a little, though, on this pass. I'm hoping to get it finished by the end of October. *crossing fingers*

Tomorrow I have a date to play with clay. I was supposed to go last week and canceled because I was sick. I'm kind of nervous about it. I get that it sounds odd. Why would I be nervous about playing with clay? But I am! It's not like I have any illusions that I'm going to walk away with a usable piece of pottery.

I had marked on the calendar that I was going. My husband read it and commented, "You know, you're going to get dirty."

"I know."

"And you're still going to go?"

"Does that fascinate you?"

He shook his head. "No. It's just that... I love this island."


  1. Yay! You're going to play with clay! That's awesome, and I can't wait to hear what you think about it. If you need any tips or anything, let me know! Have fun!

  2. I just found your blog, via Literary Rambles and wanted to say how refreshing it is to read such an honest portrayal of motherhood. I found myself laughing out loud at your mishaps, conversations and err, adventures, with your family. I have much the same issues in different ways, so it was nice to find a fellow crazy mother. :)

    Great blog on writing too! :)

  3. Hi :)
    Thanks for sharing Heather.
    I hope you post a picture or two of the results of "clay day". :)
    All the best,
    PS - Great post on Dealing With Disappointment. :)

  4. Saw your helpful post at Literary Rambles. Great blog. Looking forward to reading more.
