Can you believe it is already the end of January? Where has the time gone?!? Of course, you would never be able to tell that it is the end of January considering that I took a lovely walk outside today on my lunch without a coat!! I'm not going to complain! I love it! Anyways, let's get to the random ramblings . . .
I really have very little to report here that is anything different from last week. I am STILL reading The Count of Monte Cristo, listening to Wintergirls, and enjoying Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone with my son (which he has summed up in one word -- awesome!). Instead, I have decided to focus on a quick update on my challenges!
- 2012 Audio Book Challenge (0 of 12)
- 2012 Fairy Tale Challenge (0 of 12)
- 2012 Off The Shelf Challenge (1 of 30)
- 2012 Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge (1 of 70)
- What's In A Name Challenge 5 (0 of 6)
I started out on a good run at the beginning of the year, but according to my Goodreads Challenge, I am already behind on my overall goal for the year (70 books). The dear Count is taking a toll, so I really need to get with it and get it done!
This last week was a better writing week then the one before. I did finish a couple of freelance pieces which I will be posting later this week, focusing on the author events that I mentioned last week -- Andrea Cremer and Thrity Umrigar. I have been doing a lot of thinking on some ideas though, so does that count?!?
I do not have a lot to report here either this week. It was pretty much the usual routine stuff. However, I will say that I did finally step on the scale this morning and over the last two weeks, I have lost 6 pounds!! I am very excited about that number so far, and I hope that it continues to grow!
Your Turn: Tell me how your week went and if you have anything exciting on tap for this upcoming week! Or, tell me that I am not the only one that seems to be taking forever on a chunkster of a book!
