so fast!

This month is flying by! How did it get to be July 13 already? That's one thing about doing shows, when your time is filled with rehearsals and performances, the time goes by very quickly!

So here's a quick update on everything. It'll be under the "life" category, but I'm going to try to cover it all. I usually don't do this, but since there's not that much going on, I figured I'd kill lots of birds with one stone.

Writing - I've been working on Draha! Yay! I've got a few more pages of the outline finished and the plot is starting to really come together. I'm going to stop for a moment next week and write a short story or two, just to get out of outlining and get into actual writing. My goal is to finish the outlines for the first two books before November so I can write the first (or at least get a good start on it) during NaNoWriMo. I think I can do it!

Personal - It's been fun lately. I've been meeting lots of new people and have been on a few dates with a very nice guy. There are some other things going on in that arena as well, but that's about as specific as I want to get at this time. Suffice it to say that I'm pretty happy about my personal life at the moment.

Reading - I'm working through a wonderful book called "Captivating," which is a guided study into the heart's desires of women and how those can correlate with the heart's desires of God. About how a woman's desire for a relationship is just like the desire God has to be in a relationship with us. I love it! It has really opened my eyes about a lot of things that I hadn't thought about before and made me realize my own desires for love and a family are not dysfunctional at all, but are, in fact, quite normal.

Family - My sister's family is moving to a new house - one that sounds awesome! I think it means that the kids will each have their own rooms for the first time, which is great for them. I hope they are really happy in this new house and can stay there for awhile.

Knitting - I'm working on a baby blanket for a coworker who is due August 1. Wish me luck, because I'll need it! I will post pictures when it is finished.

That's all for now. I'm doing theatre in a separate post because there's so much to say!
