Insert Un-Inspired Title Here...

I have been totally slacking on the blog-front lately, shame on me.  I've been crazy busy with class, and trying to get things done before I leave for California on Friday morning, and trying to spend as much time as I can with Matt before my trip.  The good news is, I should be able to update my blog along the way since I'm taking my awesome netbook.  I'm also taking my camera and will try to include some pics along the way.  I don't have net service apart from what I can get as free wifi along the way, or net at my moms, but will try to update when we stop in Flagstaff or Kingman for the night on Saturday.

Other than school work and trip planning and husband coddling, I've just been trying to keep my house clean.  Seeing how I'll be gone for a week and a half, the cleaner it is now the less I'll have to do when I get home.  Matt's bound to make a huge mess while I'm gone,  he's crazy messy,  so more work now means less work later... or at least that's what I'm telling myself.  I've got to do the grocery shopping on Tuesday and there's a video game Matt wants that comes out then, so I'm going to try to get that for him.

Let's see, I also wanted to share a bit of writing news.  Melanie and I have formed writing group!!  We both want to write more, and we both need support, so we're writing together.  She gets all the credit for this awesome idea, it dawned on her while we were in class a few weeks ago.  We've decided to get together every Thursday afternoon for a few hours, to write and support one another's writing, before our Thursday class.  We've had one session so far and it was amazing and productive.  We missed last week because I'm a total slacker, but will be getting together this coming Thursday to write again.  I'm really looking forward to it.  Truly, it was an inspired idea!  Then, of course, we'll miss getting together the week I'm in CA, but will pick it up again the week after spring break.  Looking very forward to it and to the productivity that the first session proved to be.  It definitely renewed my interest in my novel in progress, Remembering Tomorrow, so I'm working on that again.

Finally, I added a "Portfolio" page to this blog as a place for me to keep a collection of links to work I've done around the net -- it's a relatively small list, but it's growing.  I've also started a new blog over the last few days, a book blog called 'A Turn of Page,' if you're interested -- if you go to that site, can you tell me how it looks.  It looks fine on my computers, but I like to be sure it looks okay otherwise.  I need a new blog like I need a hole in the head, but I love blogging and I love books, so it works.

Anyway, that's all I have for the time being.  Adieu.
