Here we are, my compatriots and friends, at the penultimate check-in for Round 3. The end of my week was one of those “two steps forward, one step back” things. I managed to write longhand for two hours each day, but it was more venting and working through problems than advancing any of my goals. I was unexpectedly out of town from noon Friday through mid-afternoon today, so I feel like Ray Milland in “The Lost Weekend.”
I did manage to keep up with walking Brigid, and I’ve been working out goals for Round 4 and life goals in all their glory. I have notes for my next History of Profanity post, as well as another one on writing. Finally, on a very nice but humbling note, L.S. Engler gave me the Versatile Blogger award. I am hoping to post my thanks very soon.
The goal line is in sight (sorry, I grew up in Atlanta, so football metaphors come easily); the checkered flag is in the air (a sports metaphor bone thrown to acknowledge my years in Indiana). I hope everyone is feeling a sense of accomplishment. Please check on all the wonderful participants here.
