This was an interesting week in my household. My husband had the stomach flu or some kind of GI infection last weekend (my birthday weekend, which I wrote about in the last Sunday update) and it knocked him out for an entire week. He was home sick, and I’m not used to doing my everyday routine with him home. It was good to have someone to talk to during the day and not be waiting for him to come home every night. It made me wish we could do home days more often. But, alas, he has an office to go to and will return there tomorrow… right before we’re expecting a blizzard! Lol. Why do I feel like he’ll be home on Tuesday? :)
We did a lot this past week…
I got an iPad mini for my birthday and it has a data plan! I’m so excited to have use of an iPad while out and about, not just on wifi. I used it to write this past week, and even got it a new skin and keyboard.
I love this foxy skin! So adorable.
We had some beautiful sunrises.
And I had a writing date with my friend and fellow author, Amy Evans. We chatted about work, writing, and then got to doing both with our headphones on :)

People! I’m almost finished with the contemporary romance I started writing on December 7th! I’m so proud of myself for sticking with this story even with my initial reservations. I love this book, and I think that once I get some feedback, it’ll be really strong and wonderful once I revise. I’ve outlined the last four chapters and I hope to be finished this week before the end of January. Then I’ll be concentrating on finishing Nogiku Book 4 revisions and plotting/writing a few short stories. I’m excited!
Goal this week: finish the Tokyo Run book. It should come in around 80k.
