Lots of little pieces do not necessarily make a huge whole.

Today's my first guitar lesson. Would you believe I'm terrified? When was the last time I tried learning something new in a formal setting like this? At least ten years. And god that makes me feel old.

I joined Weight Watchers last Friday. Two reasons. Seeing phenomenal success with WW at the QM from spikesgurl and hollydb, and seeing candid shots of me from same time frame. Oy. So far, so good. I've even been getting back on our elliptical every night. I've discovered that I last much longer on the machine with the lights off and my headphones plugged into my ipod. I can zone out and not think about how hard I'm pushing my body.

Craig and I have settled that we're going to LA the weekend of the Kane concert. Fly out Friday afternoon, fly back on a redeye Sunday night. The kids will spend the weekend with friends, and we'll get grown-up time together. I even talked Craig into going to the concert with me and _jealousy_ and her roommate. He doesn't like country, but he likes seeing me enjoying myself and Andy Hallett is supposed to sing as well. And I'm more guaranteed to be up close because Craig is far more assertive than I am, lol.

Writing has been...sporadic. I spent yesterday editing/revisiting the novel I want to write next (I have 4 chapters done), and trying to work on my LAS entry, but other than that, got little accomplished. I've been hypercritical of my work lately, and I'm not sure why. I guess I just want to be...better, if that makes sense.

Other than that...life goes on. The kids go to school, Craig goes to work (all the while muttering to himself I love my job as a necessary reminder), and I try to keep our lives from falling apart. It's a beautiful day today. Maybe I'll go write out in the garden with a notepad.
