31 January 2016

Another relatively quiet day, somewhat dull. So look back to yesterday's good things—today's are the same.

30 January 2016

1. Time to myself for writing.

. . .

It was a good day. But also kind of a boring one. So it's sometimes hard to find/think of positive things . . . Sometimes I have to get very basic. 1. I'm healthy. 2. My needs are met. 3. I have a loving family.

I really want amazing, wonderful things to happen. But it's all relative, isn't it? The things I take for granted (above) are things some people pray for every day. So maybe it wasn't an exciting day. And maybe nothing amazing happened. But it was a good day. Because of those three things and so many more.

29 January 2016

  1. Scott home from his trip.

23 January 2016

  1. I'm halfway to getting 10 reviews for Peter on Amazon. That's sort of the magic number as many outlets require the book have at least 10 reviews before they'll feature it.

  3. So. Many. Rainbows.

16 January 2016

1. Good Mexican food.
2. . . .
3. . . .

I know I'm supposed to find three good things no matter how small, but there just wasn't a whole lot going on. It was a pretty boring day. It's actually been a pretty boring week, my book release notwithstanding. Hmm.

15 January 2016


Do I really need two other good things?

Okay, well, I got in an extra long walk because it was the nicest weather we'd had in a while, and also we had Chinese food for dinner.

But did I mention MY BOOK WAS RELEASED? Go get it here.
