Off and Running in '09

Only 17 and a half more hours before school resumes! Yippee!

Once I get my mischief makers out of the house, I will be able to focus more clearly on my goals and resolutions for '09. In the meantime, here are a few short-term plans for this week.
  • I plan to do Becky's JOP exercise again. For those of who haven't tried this week's yet, head on over to Becky's site and give it a go.
  • I'll be giving away a signed copy of The HICCUPotamus by Aaron Zenz. Come back soon for details on how to win this whimsical picture book.
  • I am hosting my first guest blogger. My talented friend, Melissa, will be posting on how to self-edit your picture book manuscript. (another reason to return to my blog)
Oh, and did I mention, it's my birthday Thursday? Not a big one, but still an excuse to go out and order a bottle of wine.

My kids just stopped by my computer to inform me, "We are doing something naughty." Uh-oh! 17 hours and 25 minutes, and counting....

Happy Birthday for Thursday!

I hope they haven't been upto something too naughty. I think my two are sick of the sight of each other now.

PS - Your comment made me laugh about the word 'rubbish'!
