What was that resolution???

Here it is only one week to Cancun and not only have I not succeeded in losing XXX pounds (yes, you could translate that as 30 in Roman numerals although that wasn't exactly what I meant!) but I have also missed a couple of other great goals I set for myself, pre-2008.

I was going to finish my current manuscript by February 29th and , oops!, I missed that goal. I am about a third of the way there, but that's 2/3 short of where I wanted to be. I was also going to blog every week, so I'm only about nine weeks behind.

I'm taking nine credit hours this semester through the USU extension program and have been doing taxes for almost every family member I'm related to (the price for being the family CPA), not to mention some contract audits, so I have been justifiably busy...but so is everyone else.

Yesterday morning I set aside my homework and wrote on the book first, before my creative juices all drained out through my tear ducts. It felt empowering. Of course I panicked as my midnight English assignment loomed ever closer.

I also just joined a blog with several other authors--details will be forthcoming.

What's next? I'll think about it while I'm on the beach in Cancun. Adios!
