Yes, my 40th. It came, it went. I survived. My husband whisked me away for a weekend in Baltimore, sans kids. It was lovely. We went out to a nice dinner. I wore cute shoes that left me with horrible, bleeding blisters. But all the best shoes do.
I haven't completely wrapped my head around 40. It's not the number. Having a preteen makes me feel old, but 40 doesn't. It's just making me more self-aware of what I want out of life. Good thing I know writing is one of things!
Writing: I wrote a rough chapter with all intentions of coming back to it. It was a word dump, but sometimes those are necessary. Tomorrow, I will read it with one eye closed. Better words that can be fixed than no words at all, right?
Blogging: Settling into my new schedule. Definitely sticking with it through August. No post-a-day challenges for me anytime soon. (Please remind me I said that if I dare speak of one.)
Reading: During my 40th getaway, hubby and I walked around Barnes & Noble for an hour. Blissful. I bought a Maeve Binchy novel (okay, three). I was saddened by her passing, especially since people had been recommending her books to me for years. I'm continuing to post reviews at Mom in Love with Fiction.
Social Media: Still catching up on #IWSG and ROW80 blogs, as well as other favorites. Need to be better about Twitter and at least try to learn Triberr.
Editing: Just added two new clients. So excited to start when the girls go back to school. Until then, I have an old favorite waiting for me. I can't wait to see how it turns out. I mean, I look forward to editing the end.
Hope everyone had a great writing/reading week.
