Happy New Year, friends! The holidays brought lots of celebrating in the Lipreading Mom house, including three birthday parties. One of those parties was mine. Now that I am a young 40 years old, I’ve been thinking about what I want to do with the rest of my life (and what I don’t). Can you relate to anything on my list?
I want to take a break from novel writing.
Yep, I finally realized that my Lipreading Mom brain needs to take a sabbatical from writing the Next Great Novel. The story just isn’t moving forward, so I’m tying it up with a pretty bow and letting it sit. Unfinished.
I want to sew more. And learn to play piano.
Who cares if I get bloody fingers from sewing needles or can’t hear a tenth of the keys pecked on piano. I WANT TO PLAY (Insert pleading tone of voice and stomping foot.) Any sewing or piano aficionados out there? Contact me.
I want to stay home more and be a better wife and mom.
Sounds general, but it’s where my heart is. The writing, speaking, and volunteering will be there tomorrow, right?
