Did anybody else feel like January was just super long and exhausting?
I certainly did. As I mentioned at the beginning of the month, one of my goals is to buy a home this year. I tried twice in January and neither time worked out. It was frustrating to go through so much stress and paperwork only to end up with nothing, but I firmly believe that when it’s meant to happen, it will.
On the plus side, it snowed in my corner of North Carolina! The first I’ve seen since the beginning of 2013, so I really enjoyed it (but the dog, not so much, lol.).
Also for the first time in a while, I had a cold. (Blessedly short and easy, but it still was just “one more thing” this month.)
Needless to say, some of the distractions ended up chipping away at my productivity and I didn’t q-u-i-t-e get everything done that I wanted, but I did make progress.
I’ve been busy working on the CONFESSIONS OF A SLIGHTLY NEUROTIC HITWOMAN series. Book 30, The Hitwoman’s Girls’ Night Out (available next month!) is with the copy editor and I’m more than halfway through the first draft of Book 31!
What could possibly go wrong when a girls’ night out is arranged by Armani Vasquez?
Maggie Lee is about to find out.
When Maggie humors her quirky, psychic friend and agrees to a long-delayed night of “fun” she has to deal with the uniquely challenging dynamics of her female friends and family, a roomful of people who could potentially reveal her secret life, and a distraught, emotional support guinea pig.
Not to mention that her mom, who’s out on a temporary pass from the nut house, claims to have witnessed a murder.
It’s going to be a memorable night for Maggie and the girls, but will it prove deadly?
I also read lots of poems…(pretty much solidifying my opinion that I’m really not a poetry person) and four short stories. The best book I read was….don’t laugh…Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. I really enjoyed it, lol. I did pretty well with photo-a-day challenge (missed two days) and I tried two new-to-soup recipes (another of my goals).
How are YOU doing with your resolutions/goals?
