Time To Write

The house is (fairly) clean, the laundry is done, dishes stacked in the dishdrain, and my daughter has had her lunch.

  1. Did you get past it?? And what is this 'laundry done' thing? Totally confusing...anyway I'm gearing up for the big push tomorrow. Good luck this week?

  2. Katie -
    Well, the laundry is done as far as it can be done! :-)

  5. Good luck with the writing! Whenever I get stuck, I have a word book, all these words that jump out at me when I'm reading compiled alphabetically (Hmm...I think I may need professional help...).
