What I'm Reading:
Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols. I've had in my Kindle for a while, but had so much other reading material to get through that it's just been sitting there. Thoughts of it so far: Cute, romantic, the two MCs definitely have great chemistry. But I have to say the MC, Lori, kind of gets on my nerves at times. All her scheming, I mean, really, how often do teenagers come up with such idiotic ways to get what they want? That's my only complaint. Going Too Far is still, by far, my favorite Jennifer Echols novel.
What I'm Writing:
I got about twenty pages through revisions. Mostly I've been dealing with my disaster house and getting stuff done for crit camp and so I haven't put as much effort into it as I should. My goal is to get through the last 80 or so pages and be done by next week.
What Inspires Me Right Now:
We're going on our annual Pickett Family camping trip (the picture above is of the river we float down on our awesome raft). I love being up there in the wild, cooking over a campfire, roasting marshmallows, smelling like the great outdoors. And the great thing about this location is that there's indoor plumbing! I had a very traumatizing outhouse experience as a teenager and would rather use the woods than ever step into one of those again.
What Else I've Been Up To:
Yes, that would be my feet on my new carpet that got installed just yesterday! I was so excited I did cartwheels all over our new basement floor (I haven't done cartwheels since high school. In other words, I haven't done them since I had 4 freaking kids. Pretty proud of myself for not falling on my butt or spraining my wrist). Almost all of the house is back in order. The only room we haven't finished setting back up is my daughter's, which we will get to later on today. I am so relieved this whole process is over and we can roll over our very soft and plush new carpet.
What have you been up to?
