I need a little pick-me-up

January is a lonnnnng month, and February is even longer. We don't get a proper day off for MLK, and nothing for President's Day. Christmas only teases me about the freedom of summer to come. I know I shouldn't be wishing my life away, but I'm feeling a little overwhelmed, so here's a "things I'm looking forward to" blog.

January – Monday is a workday in my classroom – time to get organized! I'll be getting a preservice teacher on Wednesday, one who observes, but can also work with the kids. I can't wait! On DVD, there's Flight Plan, Lord of War and Legend of Zorro on DVD!

February – Trish is coming to San Antonio! We're going to have so much fun, she won't want to go to her conference! Then there's the Launching a Star results! First reading test will be over! Elizabethtown, Just Like Heaven and Pride and Prejudice on DVD!

March – Spring Break! Emily results, Duel results and GH calls (GULP)!

April – my birthday! Easter! Fiesta! TAKS tests over! Tutoring over!

May – Mother’s Day!

June – SUMMER!!! Dh’s birthday!

July – son’s 15th birthday (wah!), National in Atlanta! Pirates of the Caribbean!

What are you looking forward to? Do you need things to look forward to?

Submission results maybe. I say maybe because it's a weird combination of dread and anticipation.

I'm really looking forward to the Winter Olympics in February.

I'm hoping to finish my WIP by February, so I'll have editing to look forward to that month. (That's actually fun for me, now that I've learned better how to do it). I should get the scan of my book cover in March or April--whee! My book will show up on eHarlequin for purchase on May 5 and then in the stores in June, events I'm having a lot of trouble wrapping my mind around. :)

You know, I used to love the Olympics. Wonder why that changed? Too many choices on cable, probably, versus having only the three channels when I was younger. That, and not knowing what the hell winter is.

Tanya, I've got my fingers crossed for good news for you! And Paula, I can't wait to read your book!!!!

I'm really looking forward to that trip to San Antonio. And the Olympics, too. I'm a big Olympics junkie. I hear you on the gulp on the GH calls in March. I still get nervous.
