Really Quick Update

First off, I’ve prettied up the place! What do y’all think? I found these backgrounds through another person’s blog and loved them. Took trying out about four of them before I settled on this one. If you click the little button at the top left, you can check out all the other cool options.

Second off, I’VE PASSED THE 70K MARK!!! Look!!!! >>>>>>>>>>>

I am so excited. Even got a few hundred past it before I noticed. I’ve never written this much and I know I’m going to be overwhelmed when it comes time to make this thing presentable, but I’m riding the high right now. If I didn’t believe in momentum before, I sure as hell do now. LOL!

So, that’s it. I could tell you about kiddo’s volleyball season or all the extra duties I’m about to inherit at work, but I’ll save that for another time. Both involve anywhere from a modicum of bitching to a lot, and I want to keep this one positive.

How is everyone else doing? We still have a couple weeks of school but I know tons of kidlets are already out across the country. Anyone wanting to send them back already? Got some really cool summer camps planned? Broken out the old bathing suit yet? (So not looking forward to this.)

    This is Sure Thing visiting from Lucy’s blog. I’m also following the blog links to everyone’s pages.

    Saw your post on RWR – congrats on completing the manuscript. And great design.

    I’m off to check the lucy birthday posts and maybe another blog before its back to rejuvenating after exams.

    Thanks for stopping by, Sarah. And congrats on surviving exams! After three and a half years of school, I’ve now been done for a year and still love the relief of no more homework and no more exams.

    Wow, Ter, I like the new look. Very pretty!

    I laughed out loud when I read – Want to send them back already? YES, I DO! It seems I’ve turned from Mom into Julie the Cruise Director. I’m bored, what are we doing today? They don’t like the answer – clean the house.

    My son has pretty much gotten the clue – he gets up and gets out of my hair. The girl is a little more tenacious. She can be like a dog with a bone at times.

    We are sending them to camp in the middle of July. So, the DH and I will have 7 whole days without them. That will be a nice mini-vacation.

    Congrats on the progress you are making! You’ll be all set when conference rolls around.

    I hope you don’t get too lonely with kiddo gone. I can’t wait for mine to leave but I know I’m gonna miss them.
