Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursdays is a meme hosted by Oasis For YA, an awesome blog run by some fabulous writers. These wonderful ladies know that taking a minute to think about the good things in life that you already have is a sure-fire way to lift your spirits and get those creative juices flowing.

This week I am thankful for...

Spring Break! There I said it. I just have to get through today and tomorrow and I have one whole week off. And I am so very thankful for that. This has been a very long week. I'm excited to say that I am moving back into my renovated classroom. The moving part isn't much fun...for those of you unaware, teachers tend to accumulate a lot of stuff. One doesn't realize how much until they have to move. Yikes! On the bright side my room looks great and this is my last move! (For those of you who missed my earlier pitty-party, I had to move over Christmas break as well.)

I have also been on lock down editing mode all week. I've had tunnel-vision working on this most recent draft, whatever number it is. So I apologize for being scarce this week.

So next week I plan to polish up this manuscript of mine, do some beta reading for the wonderful Lindsay and visit all of your amazing blogs. I cannot wait! So go ahead and spill...what are you thankful for?

I'm thankful for the blogging world. The support they give me, the contest they throw, and the agents I'm able to meet.

Oh I'm also thankful for beta readers who help with line edits. They are Gods.

I'm thankful for everything. Life is good.

It sure would be nice to have a week off though, lucky you!

Have a great Spring Break! Ours is the next week so I'm trying to get so much done before then so I can relax and do fun things with the kiddos!

I'm thankful for my fellow writers and all the resources they provide for free on the web. Good luck with all your revisions.

Have a great Spring Break -- you deserve it!

I'm thankful for lots of things -- especially books and cookies, lol-- but I'm very thankful for my writer friends. I don't know what i'd do without you ;)

Classroom moves are the worst! For me it's the novels and nonfiction books - there are so many to move!!!

I recently moved back into my classroom after renovations. It's a lot of work settling back in!

I recently came out of tunnel-vision, but I'll be going back in soon for edits.

I'm on my spring break this week, and enjoy yours next week!
