What I'm Reading
I finished Wish You Were Italian and LOVED it. It was a sweet, fun, summertime read. I'm now 200 pages into Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson and just want to read all day until I finish. I've paused on the audio book of Days of Blood and Starlight. I'm not feeling it right now (which saddens me because I loved the first one so much). To stand in it's place I started The Program by Suzanne Young this morning.
What I'm Writing
Hit 25K today! I'm still on track to finish by June 30th. I really love where When the Wind Blows is going. It's taken a slightly different direction and that's okay. I plotted out some of the story and am letting the characters fill in the blanks. And it's fun! My CP/BFF Jessica assures me I haven't broken my book. She also decided to start giving me stickers through text each time I met a mini writing goal. I found it easier to spread out my word goal throughout the day rather than. At one point I said I'm going to write 200 words an hour for the next six hours. And I did. And then some! Who knew stickers were so motivating?
What Inspires Me Right Now
My dad. This weekend he graduated with his Bachelors in Science of Aeronautics. He was Summa Cum Laude, on the deans list AND in the Alpha Sigma Lambda National Honor Society. It's been a long road and an adjustment for him but so proud of him for finishing and doing so with honors.
What Else I've Been Up To
Busy week. Kiddo had a T-Ball game Friday. I had to leave work a little early for us to make it on time (which was okay with me).
Saturday was my dad's graduation. It was held at the Naval Air Museum on the Navy base about 45 minutes away. It was such an awesome setting for the graduation. It was nice since I haven't been there since I was in high school. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the museum. Kind of neat for the graduating class.
Sunday we hung around my parents' house. My aunt and grandmother are in town for the week so we're getting as much family time in as possible.
Busy weekend and we'll have another next weekend. But YAY it's a 3 Day!
So what have you been up to?
