The ice here has been terrible and last night, the snow arrived. Today, we are supposed to go up to the in-laws to celebrate Christmas, but I'm afraid that the 2 hour trip would turn into a 4+ hour trip so we are seriously considering going.
I am also very excited to spend some time with these guys this week....my niece and nephew from Dallas are here until Christmas. They moved this past summer and I have missed them so much!
Also on my agenda this week is catching up on lots of reading. I love to get up early in the morning (before any other distractions get out of bed -- aka my kids) and read. I have started reading a new book, The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer, because I saw it recommended as one of Amazon's Top Picks of the Year. So far, it's pretty good!
I also hope to get some work done on a new product for my TpT Store called "Writing of the Week." I have found that with my group of writers this year, they need very explicit instruction in how to put together a writing project. This new product will feature step-by-step instructions as they complete one part a day, from brainstorming, grouping ideas, writing an introduction and conclusion and finally, publishing. You can get a sneak peek and download the first lesson here. (I would LOVE your feedback as I move forward with this product!!)
