Writing...Hannah Montana, say what?

I watch way too much Disney channel!!

As you may or may not know I am currently working on completely a list of 40 things I'd like to do by the time I'm 40 yrs old (shut up). I started on my birthday back in March and have accomplished quite a bit.

-Dinner at Benihana (a longing from childhood)
-Confession (something that all Catholics feel some level of guilt about not doing)
-Rock wall climbing (lots of fun but not my sport)
-A 20 consecutive day yoga challenge (personally rewarding if not physically debilitating)
-A spiritual retreat (sort of)
-Flying a kite (not the Mary Poppins experience I had hoped)
-Skinny dipping (no comment)
-Attend a concert (yeah, I've done this one before plenty of times but it has been years)
-Chose a career path (writing)
and finally...
-Write something for publication (done...almost)

I've been pretty busy, right? I'm not even adding all the cool things I've been up to that aren't on the list. I know, I'm tooting my horn but I've been a couch potato for 3 1/2 years (I don't actually know if that's possible with a 3 1/2yr old).

My life has become full and fun but (and there always is a but) I'm having trouble writing and submitting. You must be thinking "How can that be? She's so incredibly talented." OK so maybe that's just wishful thinking. Yesterday I had two hours to work on the final draft of my story and the query but instead found myself playing on the internet. You'd be surprised at the cost of houses in Newport and the extent of Lindsey Lohan's prescription drug addiction. I'm telling you now that both are totally out of control! And today when I usually have 3 hours I've scheduled something right smack in the middle. All together now, self sabotage. Yep, that's me. *sigh*

I'm committed to writing....uhhh, that freaks me out a little...so please wish me well and say countless tiny prayers that I don't wuss out.

Am I depressing anyone besides myself?

I don't think it's possible to be a couch potato w/a kid! You go girl, I think you're writing is awesome! I think you told me knitting was on that list? I give great lessons!
