Once again, I’m joining the What’s Up Wednesday feature hosted by Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk. It’s fun, so you should join too! 🙂
What I’m reading – I’m finally getting back on track with the Presidential Challenge and reading m Rutherford Hayes biography. I hope to finish it tonight, because I picked up another 4 books from the library this week. And, that’s on top of the 6 or so I already have checked out. I may have a slight addiction to the hold button on my library’s website. 🙂
What I’m writing – Um, well. This past week has been a week of doubt and general frustration. I’m struggling with all of this writing thing. I’m overwhelmed with half ideas. I’m overwhelmed with making a query letter perfect. I’m terrified of spending all this time trying to get published and never actually get there. I’m terrified that my MS sucks beyond repairability. And yes, I just made that word up.
So, I haven’t written much lately. I just don’t know what to do really. I need someone/CP to tear my MS apart, but then love me when I fall apart after. Any takers?
What else I’ve been up to – Life with my crazy kiddos. This weekend it was gorgeous outside so we spent some time outside. I’ve been on a major (read insane) drive to live with less, minimize our stuff, and purge the extra stuff. We’re finally slowly selling the baby stuff as Emmett grows out of it, and we cleaned out the kid’s closets ruthlessly. We have a huge pile of things to donate, and a huge pile to sell to a local kids’ resale store.
Today Emmett had his 6 month check up and got three vaccinations. So, I foresee the next few days of clingy baby snuggles.
What inspires me right now – This family. Including their adorable trailer and breathtaking photos.Brett and I have been talking a lot lately about the American Dream and what that really means these days. I don’t know that we’ll sell everything and go on the road like the Prouty’s, but the think smaller mindset is definitely in our home right now. I may do a separate post about this, because it plays a lot into the what I’m writing (or not) section above.
Anywho…what’s up with your Wednesday?
