Oh, hello. This is totally the Saturday update, you just missed it yesterday. Yes. Yes you did. STOP LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT.
Okay, fine. We are so busy daring the pants off of ourselves that somehow we (read: I) were not able to get all of our updates together yesterday. We’re just out there, daring and pantsless, and that keeps us very busy. You know how it is. (I, for one, am totally looking for pants, for example.)
Joshilyn says: My stupid idea was stupid. I worked out and promptly ended up back in bed in minor agony all week, and nothing could comfort me but almond roca. So. I think this is the most epic of ALL my fails to date, really. Break it down, hammertime style: First, setting an actively harmful goal, then executing it along with MYSELF, then sourly eating candy. Fail Trifecta. [Ed. note: But she's still so pretty. And hopefully feeling better.]
Lydia says: I am steeling myself to debut an original song in Monday’s post. Currently fiddling with bit rate and sample rate and megahertz and wishing I had an audio nerd in my crawl space so I could press him/her into service. [Ed. note: Can't. Wait. The Virginia Janes rock!]
Gray says: Feeling better every day! No stigmata improvement yet, but my hope is springing forth like a RABID DOE. My house is a swamp of disaster. I’ve begun to dig it out from the mire of neglect and somnambulant housekeeping. Daily writing has been invigorating, The weather is clearing, I’ve taken a few walks in the cool spring sunlight and all is right with the world. [Ed. note: I would like to order some "all is right with the world," please.]
Kira says: This is a very hard challenge to give an update on. I am doing amazing things. Or possibly achieving absolutely nothing. I may be growing as a human being. On the other hand, I could just be increasing the frustration level of my nearest and dearest. So… success! Or not. [Ed. note: I'm glad we cleared that up.]
Mir (that’s me) says: I… am ready for this challenge to be over. I feel like some awesome things have come out of it, but agree that it’s terribly difficult to quantify many of those. That said, in the last two weeks I accepted both a new writing gig and a speaking engagement I probably would’ve passed by before I started thinking in terms of “saying yes,” so I do feel like Good Things are afoot.
How is your week going? Are you growing as a person, even though we swore we were not going to do that here? Sometimes it just happens, all sneaky-like. We understand.
