Monday Mishmash 5/11/15


Happy Monday! Monday Mishmash is a weekly meme dedicated to sharing what's on your mind. Feel free to grab the button and post your own Mishmash.

Here's what's on my mind today:
  1. Mother's Day  I had a great Mother's Day. I love this day because it celebrates my all-time favorite title—Mom.
  2. Field Trip  My daughter's second grade class is going to the Liberty Science Center this Thursday, and I'm a chaperone on the trip. I'm excited—except for the 2-hour bus ride each way. ;)
  3. Completed Draft  Last week, my goal was to finish my MG draft. I haven't had a book fight me this much in a very long time, and I actually altered my goal so I didn't have to finish last week. But…by some miracle I did finish. Yay!
  4. Editing  I have a new client submitting a book this week. It's always fun to edit for someone new.
  5. Pool Time!  We opened our pool over the weekend. Now we just need the water to warm up so we can swim. Hopefully soon!
That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

  1. So jealous of your pool. Enjoy the school trip and congratulations on the completed draft. After a post Camp Nanowrimo break, I'm back to my novel rewrite this week.

    1. The pool has been a blessing, but so much work. It seems like we have trouble with it every year, but once summer hits, we are very happy we have it.

  2. A two-hour bus ride each way with second graders. Oh good luck. In the fourth grade we went on a field trip that involved a one hour plane ride each way. I cringe about this now as an adult.

  3. One of our neighbours had a pool when I was growing up. Great in the summer, but cold during the first days of having it filled. These days I've got an Olympic sized pool on campus, a five minute walk from home.

  5. it's been about 80 here the past few days and our AC is busted, argh. so frustrating. someone's fixing it today. Our pool should be open in another week or so (we usually do after memorial day) and then of course it takes a week or so to heat up! I love summer, just wish it went on a bit longer! and I know all about fighting with a MS...I'm currently doing battle with mine lol

    1. We're suffering without AC at the moment, too. :( The upstairs is unbearably hot.

      Good luck with your WIP. I hope it gets better as you do. I got to a certain point and it started to get better. Thankfully. lol

  10. Happy Mother's Day Kelly. Mine was sweet as well. After all the annoyance of being on top and hugging onto me, never leaving my side. Bit that's great about the new client and finishing your draft.

  11. I hope it will be warm enough to swim soon. I love swimming. :) Hope the field trip is tons of fun and that the bus ride is quieter than you imagine!
