That about sums it up. I've been re-reading, even managed the start of a couple of scenes, but nothing much beyond that. Monday starts two online classes for Summer A and still working 40 hours a week.

Iíve been swamped with work, but that isnít new. With income tax, and annual and quarterly filers for GST/HST due on the 30th, April was my busiest month. And because I let the not-so-high-priority stuff slide while I was getting the priority stuff done, Iím farther behind than ever, hence continued longer hours.

The stacks of paperwork werenít/arenít the only things to suffer. My house is a disaster area. While the basics have been sort of kept up, this house could use a really good spring cleaning. Iíd like to really get to that one of these days. But the weather is getting better and I want to be outside not cooped up indoors.

And it is spring here. Despite the cold temperatures and the piles of snow from shovelling the driveway still melting, I saw a humming bird yesterday. Which makes me want to go and dig in my garden, which I donít have time for. Not to mention my two dogs love to dig in there as well, so the poor plants have a mediocre chance an survivalÖ *sigh*

Okay, writing wise, I havenít done much, mostly reading what I have and editing a thing or two here and there. Iím still working on getting it all together in some sort of order. In fact, I am now obsessed with trying to find my favourite homework assignment so I can post it. Obviously, my files are cluttered and I need to go through and purge.

So, that brings me to goals.

1. Spend one hour per day clearing up my files, email, and other miscellaneous stuff from my computer so I can be more organized. (No laughing)

2. Post a homework. Iíve got a couple almost finished. Just need to choose one and do it.

3. Iíd like to get back in the habit of critiquing because it helps me in my own writing by exercising my mental muscles.

4. Time is in short supply, but if I donít spend some time writing everyday itís easy to not do anything at all. Itís the 7th today, so my goal is to write 300 words for 25 days, for a month end total of 7500. Baby steps.

I'll let you all know how it goes
