I am so TIRED, and blogging has been rather sporadic lately, I know. I'm always running late these days. But I also feel like I have been pretty productive lately... maybe only by my own standards.

I had a surprise day off from work last week because I needed to get my car fixed, and I ended up really using my time wisely. I drafted a query letter so that I could start sending the novel out to agents (although in the process I basically decided that it's not ready/isn't good enough, and I'm kind of okay with that... it's only the first pancake), and then I started the second novel that has been brewing in my mind for a while now. This one has a much more concentrated focus and, well, plot, so I'm pretty excited about it.
I'm toying with the idea of using my blog as a way to "write" certain sections of the book that I think could really benefit from outsider input. I think it could be really fun! So I'll get back to you on that. I've been kind of struggling with where I want this blog to go, mostly because my life is about to change dramatically in a few months (if all goes as planned) and I want to find a way to transition into a blog that encompasses more than just what I am wearing. After all, "clothes are but our outmost cuticle and mortal coil."
Yesterday I went snowboarding with my mom and brother and it was a beautiful, perfect day, and so much fun. I really love spending a day on the mountain, and am so grateful to my mom for taking me along! There is something so refreshing about winter sports, that I always forget until I am doing them. I look forward to the day when I have land and can casually go outside and move around. Snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding... all so much fun! And Vermont is just so beautiful. I have such pride in my little home state, for so many reasons, but its beauty is certainly one of them.
Oh, and K got in to the first two graduate programs he applied to! Two for two :) We're just waiting to hear on six more. So proud of that guy!
