J'adore la pluie.

It's raining yet again in the heartland, which is excellent for the grass and other plants. I can't wait to see my lilacs bloom. Hopefully we'll have a warming trend that will stay for a while. I'm getting anxious to plant perennials but we'll still have to wait a few more weeks for that.

I'm in my scrapbook room today trying to salvage any semblance of order. I hope to make some sort of a difference and get some scrapping done. Of course, I told the kids we would go see "17 Again" so that will take some time away from my project. That's OK. I think my kids' excitement and Zac Efron are worth it!

Catching the writing bug again...

I have begun working on my romance novel once again. I have been reading my normal Harlequin romances and I think I am going to give writing a shot again. I think if I had a week of totally uninterrupted time with no distractions (including the internet--ha ha), I might be able to actually finish my manuscript. Of course, how likely is that to happen since I have work and family responsibilities, like most people do? Maybe this summer while the kids are at day camp I can get some real writing done.
