SuperIma Sunday Check-in

Oh, friends.  I've been so EMOTIONAL this week. I know that the point of this check-in is to make sure that I'm spending more time nurturing myself and less time with the "shoulds" of stay-at-home Imahood - but I am always feeling torn between the guilt of not spending more playtime with the kids (they help me do a lot of laundry, cooking, and cleaning) and the resentment of not having an hour of my own every day.

So, what's new?

Anyway.  I was actually really successful this week.  I told you that my new 365 Project is writing, and that my goal was to write 500 words a day.  Well......

Thank you.  Thankyouverymuch.

I just passed the 25,000 word mark with my writing-for-pleasure stuff, and it feels really good.  So this week, I'm going to keep on keepin' on (as my sweet friend Gevura likes to say.)  For the first time in a long time, there has been something I'm really looking forward to and excited about every day.

Okay superImas, check in - what are your goals and resolutions for the week?

Hugs and cheers from me!


  1. Good for you Leigh Ann! I started to write a little murder mystery last year, got to 23k words so far, then got totally stumped for 6 months...argh....but I've been at least re-reading what I've written every day now, I'm taking baby steps in my writing, I'm trying for 1 chapter a week.

    Well, I think I'm super, but I'm not an Ima,
    :), still though, I have a few goals this week. I want to make some raspberry and blueberry jam, continue knitting a little beanie for myself and make a loaf of bread! That should be easy considering I have a new breadmachine, I love it! :)

  2. I don't see a Mr. Linky, but I did your check-in this week:

  3. @Rain! You are super. And if you want to trade writing for crit, let's talk. We might be good partners.

    @SHANNON!!!!!!!!!!!!! SORRY ABOUT THAT!!!!!!

    I have linked you up. You rule.


Thanks for your comments! They make my day.
