What’s Up Wednesday is hosted by Jaime Morrow. Check out her blog for the scoop!
What I’m Reading – The Dirty Life by Kristin Kimball. And man…this book makes me want to buy some land and create a farm. Like, now. Instead, I shall become even more obsessed with building up our backyard garden. 🙂 We’re planning on buying a green house kit and wood to build more raised beds over the winter. I can hardly stand the excitement!
What I’m Writing – I’m plugging away on my NaNo novel, however, I’ve been a little slack on it. I knew going in, this month was going to be a bit hectic with plenty of days without writing, so it’s no surprise that I’m behind. And I’m okay with that. I pass 17,000 words yesterday, which is more words than I had October 31st, right?
On the querying side of things, I haven’t heard anything new. It’s hard to stay positive, so I’m trying not to think about it much.
What Else I’ve Been Up To – Our wedding anniversary was yesterday. Brett and I have been together for 12 years, married for 9, which basically means we’ve been together more than a third of our lives. Crazy. And cool. 🙂 So, how did we celebrate our anniversary? We had a kid-free dinner at a specialty pizza place (elk sausage…yum!) and bought a new mattress. Yup, a new mattress. We live fancy, huh? 🙂 It was delivered today, which was amazing, and I LOVE IT. Plus, it was on sale and they were running two promotions – free delivery and a free basic mattress set. So, we know have a full size bed set in our basement for guests, and it will be moved to Emmett’s room when he’s ready to convert his crib turned toddler bed into a full.
What’s Inspiring Me Now – Fall. Our new bed. My crazy kids. Our families. Basically, I’m trying to focus on thinking more positive lately, pushing aside the negative downer stuff that’s in my mind. It works some days. It helps that I love fall in Missouri. It’s so gorgeous and we’re just getting the first of our really chilly days. I’m excited about snow and fun outside in the winter, even though I hate bundling the kids up and being stuck inside more.
