February 1, Again
Last year on this day, I posted why I hate February.
This year, I'm heading into February on a decidedly more positive note. I still hate all of those things about February. And it looks like tonight and tomorrow will be blizzardy. But this year, I'm going to try to think of things that are good about February.
1. I don't have to remove any more wallpaper. Most of the walls in our house are prepped and ready to be painted. Not that we don't have a thousand other things to do, so the painting probably won't go as quickly as I think it will, but we're close.
2. I'm writing a novel this month! It's my fourth, but this time I'm taking a class on novel writing, so I have structure, a general plan, and 18 people to cheer me on as we go through this together. And my main character works in a bakery, so I get to write about baked goods all the time. Yum.
3. It's my birthday in a couple weeks. I'm not a real fan of big celebrations, but we've been working on the house so much lately, Kent and I haven't had a "date night" that doesn't include painting or sanding in over a month. My birthday is a great excuse for us to go out.
4. Okay, I couldn't come up with a fourth, but at least I tried.
Hope you all have a lovely start to your February!
