ROW 80 & Gold Stars
January 22, 2012 § 6 Comments
I’m recuperating right now from some ailment that is similar to what I imagine being pelted with a paintball gun feels like- oh, and puking. Luckily, it’s only me. (If you can put barfing and feeling like death after a word like “luckily” ) So I’ve gotten to barricade myself in our room and listen to the sounds of Jon’s parenting. Gems like “HUSH!” and “no more cupcakes!” and “wanna watch another cartoon?” and “Argh, quit pooping!” I took notes.
I did get to do some reading yesterday. I read the sequel to Shatter (which is a free Epic Fantasy on Amazon) and it was so good! The name of the book is Render, and it’s got a lot of fun characters and I think it’s a superbly crafted world. The author is Elizabeth C. Mock (self-pubbed) and I highly recommend these books. I am not a well-read fantasy reader, but these make me want to read more.
As far as writing goals, I’m doing good! I met all my goals despite contracting the plague. Yesterday was my “day off.” I have meditated some. When I lay in bed with Gabe getting him to sleep, I do it. It’s what I like to call multi-tasking-meditation and I decided that it counts.
I get gold stars for exercise too since I exceeded my goal (of 3 workouts). This is something that helps me feel more positive toward everyone and everything, so it’s probably worthwhile.
Last but not least- I jazzed up my blog a bit! I figured out how to put widgets on the side. I realized with my last theme, the widgets that I thought didn’t exist were at the bottom of the page. Hence, no one could see them.
I’m also toying with the idea of changing my screenname. My dad informed me that it looks like HeatherIsShit when it gets cut-off for a comment. While this is funny to me, it’s not really the message I’m trying to send to the world. I’m pretty self-deprecating, but that seems a bit extreme, yes?
Hope everyone has a wonderful week. I used hand sanitizer, so don’t be afraid to comment. 😉
