** Time For A New Look - A New Beginning **

I've really had the urge to get a new template for my blog, especially after seeing so many really cool and unique ones .... But, I also feared trying to get technical and then totally screwing up what I already had, and I certainly didn't want to do that! So, I've chosen a relatively simple and safe one to go with, plus it seems to suit my style. What d'ya think?

It's a New Dawn (not really), a New Day (almost) and time for a New Look! On my blog, that is. I could also use a new look for "me", but one thing at a time!

I've also decided that this coming Sunday, April 25th, the beginning of a new week, will be My New Day, to get totally focused and stay totally focused on the writing of and completion of my book. I've allowed way too many things to get in the way of succeeding and That Stops Now! This is my New Look and my New Beginning!

* Hallelujah - Celebrate - I'm Finished! *

In honor of completing my 42 million, hand written certificates, for the children's writing contest.....

I have changed my Play List to play just a snippet of the only song that I feel is appropriate....

You may join in the Sing-a-Long, if you'd like!

*Sorry...no quote on this post. I'm too tired to find one on being too tired.*

** If It's Friday, I Know Where I Am **

I was up rather late again last night, hand writing all the necessary info on the certificates I've been working on for a couple of days. I'm so very happy to announce that I am now on the downhill slope and will have everything completed early today. Knowing that it's for 3rd & 4th Graders who entered a writing contest, made it much more fun than say, for... something adults participated in! And it was a great assignment to help improve my penmanship! Boy, there's a word you don't hear anymore. I proved to myself that I can still write, without it looking like a doctor's prescription for meds.

Okay. Much to do today, so this will be short and sweet! Ah yes....just like me!
