A Late Start. Drat!

Well, I’m not off to a very good start this Round, having missed the opening day. I had unexpected company last night, my daughter and her boyfriend. I guess that’s why they call this the writing challenge that knows you have a life. Woot-woot! I have a life!

I’m pretty excited to be a first-time sponsor for Round 3. I hope that I don’t fail my fellow bloggers. I also have ramped up my goals again. It’s time to stop being lazy!

A. Weekly goal
1. Read my assigned blog posts as a ROW80 sponsor.        
2. Read ten hours a week in one of the books I am reading.  
B. Goals for the Round                           
1. Have finished reading five books. 

A. Weekly goal
1. Finish writing those last three chapters in my novel, “Tale of an American Woman”. Argh, I am so close and so excited. I had an epiphany the other night so that I know just how everything is going to wrap up. I just need to keep my butt in my chair and my fingers on the keyboard.  
2. Edit “The Early Life of Jesus in 40 Days”, the second book in the Bible Stories in 40 Days series.
3. Write two blog posts here and three posts to my other blog, The Dino Chronicles.

A.  Get in Shape
1. Continue exercising four times a week and running three times a week.
2. Keep off that five pounds I worked so hard to lose.

Think that will keep me out of trouble for the next 80 (79) days?
