Progress Report

That's my dog. Isn't she cute? Her name is Moo, but we call her Moo-moo. Yes, that is the name she came with. We extended it to be "Mulan", but we don't call her that often. She lets the boys do just about anything with her- thus, the chickie-hat.

I haven't made as much progress on edits today as I'd hoped for multiple reasons - we had the young writers workshop today (which went great! Thanks, Jewel!), I just caught a bad cold, and I had to works double the hours I normally do this morning. I also had some major additions to some of the chapters to increase the sensory detail. I think I did pretty good considering all of that. I got another 59 pages done for a total of 167 out of 489. I think tomorrow will be better. I don't have nearly as many demands on my time, though I've got another 2 or 3 chapters that are going to need the sensory detail added as well. I honestly think tomorrow will be a great editing day. I might just make that friday deadline. I'm sure going to try. Thursday might be a challenge since I might have to do jury duty, and if I don't have to do that I've got lunch with the blogging babes. I'll find out tomorrow and will let you all know.

So, I'm going to bed. My brain is fried and my throat feels like I swallowed a bag of sand. Blech! Good night!

I sure hope you don't have jury duty -- you need to come have lunch with us!! Woohooo!

I have a blogging award for you -- come get it!

Oh, would you also let your mom know that I'll have her books back to her soon? And I'm sorry for the delay.
