Goals and Celebrate the Small Things

March Goals and Progress

1. Finish Champion in Flight 3rd Draft - two more chapters down. More to go.

2. Bike 120+ miles. - Only 11 miles this week! Yikes! More biking on weekend planned.

3. Fast from fiction (except stuff for teaching), and from chocolate. - started Wednesday, so far so good.

4. Write in my journal every day - good.

5. Laugh often - could always do more here. :)

6. Keep working at Write 1 Sub 1 - yikes, haven't subbed this week. Tomorrow.

7. Prep all my A to Z posts in advance - have a topic and notes for all the letters.

Celebrate the Small Things
A great weekly celebration hosted by Viklit!

This week I'm celebrating that:

1. My oldest daughter choreographed a dance for a flash mob taking place on Saturday.
2. I discovered a topic I can do for A to Z that doesn't take away from finishing Champion in Flight and I'm finally signed up in the 1023rd spot. Wow.
3. I made progress made towards my goals.

What are you celebrating this week?

Next week: National Wormhole Week, Green Planet Thoughts, and Celebrate the Small Things!


  1. Glad you're on board with the Challenge!
    You'll have to tape that flash mob dance tomorrow.

    1. Alex - Glad to be a part of it again!
      And . . . I don't know if I want to tape it or not. :) We'll see what happens.

  2. I'm with you on laughing more. :)

    Good luck with your A-Z posts. I'm still working on mine….

    1. Good to know I'll have great company laughing :)
      And thanks! Best wishes for your A to Z posts too!

  3. Applauding you-- great goals and things to celebrate. I love journaling and have let this fall by the wayside-- good reminder for me to pick this up again. Happy Lent. :)

    1. Thank you, Julie! I have felt inspired by so many of your posts about journaling, and it helped get me going again. Happy Lent. :)

  4. Yay for the A to Z! Good luck with your posts, and have a great weekend :)

  5. Glad you decided to join us!!! Welcome. Are you doing the theme reveal hop-within-a-hop on 3/21? You could tell us all about your idea...
    By the way, got here through the wormhole of your correctly done hyperlink at the A-Z Challenge Blog! Good work.

    1. Thanks, Tina!!! I really appreciated that tip on making a hyperlink. I will take part in the reveal . . . although I'm having IWSG kind of "aah! what if it's not a good topic."

  6. Making progress with your goals is always a worthy thing to celebrate! :)

  7. What is a flash mob dance? I'm out of it I guess. Also congrats finding a topic and joining A to Z. And it's always a celebration when you make progress with your goals.

    1. A flash mob dance is a dance where people join in from the crowd - ideally it includes a huge amount of people and takes place in a crowed area - so that it seems as if random people are just walking out of the crowd and joining the dance. Ours was kind of a "mini" mob with just ten people in a small, community park.
      And thanks!!!


Thanks for taking time to share your awesomeness!
