As this is a milestone year, I have been thinking about what I want life to look like during this season. To that end, I have set a few goals. Feel free to harass me about meeting them.

1. (I can't believe I'm putting this in print) Complete first drafts of More and Fear Not.
2. Return to and maintain my normal weight by working out four times/week.
3. Take two spiritual retreats, one alone and one with the Hubby.
4. Attend a writer's retreat at The Convent.
5. Be intentional about deepening my intimacy with God, my family, and my friends.

I have rough outlines completed for both manuscripts. Don't ask me about my weight. Did you not hear me say I had a birthday? Retreat number one is scheduled for October. I am already saving money for the writer's retreat in the spring. As for the last one, not really sure what that will look like.

Wish me luck.

oh wow. The Convent sounds great. I was hoping to have a me-getaway this week but decided not to. There is a really neat Christian retreat near Louisville KY that has a lodge (Country Lake Christian Retreat). Used to be able to get a room without being part of a organized retreat if they had rooms available.

It's beautiful.

By the way, I wanted to post this at 'more' under the best laid plans but I keep having trouble so I'll tell you here--

I'm happier close to my 'ideal' weight too and I can panic about not getting back down. But I want to remind you that you're still as likable, smart, good, cool, and so on at 'more' as you are at 'less'.

Check out the blog below,

Lisa Paton, a friend I have made through my brother down in Nashville area. Is about to have her first novel published. This is a project, 15 years in the making.

Oh, yeah Lisa is a true southern belle to the core!
