Happy Joe Cain Day!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the traditions of Mardi Gras, today is Joe Cain Day. For a bit of explanation on why an entire day is dedicated to a guy name Joe, click here. Now, on with the goals…


Writing: new novella.  25,000 words.  I’m at 13,009. If gotten 4,013 words written this week.  I’m happy with that.  The kids are out of school this week for Mardi Gras, don’t know how much will get written.  Mardi Gras ends Tuesday, don’t know why they are out for the whole week.

Editing:  Edit my NaNoWriMo project, first 50 pages.  Nope.  I’ll work on this later.

Submissions: Submit to one editor/agent a week.  Yes, one query letter sent out. Also received a very nice rejection letter.  I know that sounds strange, but it was very nice.

Health: One exercise session a week.  No.  Does chasing down parades for two hours count?

The Great Purge: Taking one room at a time. I have made great progress with this.  I cleaned, washed, and scrubbed both bathrooms (from the ceiling down).  I also organized the linen closet and the pantry.  I feel so good about it.  I can actually find a washcloth.

W&*(^t :  Goal 3 healthy snacks a week.  I have snacked less, and eaten yogurt.

I feel good about my progress this week.  I’ve enjoyed the time off, spending time with the kids and cooking real food.

How are your goals?
