13 Signs Winter Is Over

Winter may have officially been over for several weeks, but I feel like I'm finally dusting off the cobwebs. These are thirteen things I finally got around to doing since last Thursday 13.
  1. Got rid of those yucky curtains and hung 4 sets of blinds.
    (I think this should count as 1-4, hah!)
  2. Replaced the broken rake and outdoor broom.
    (now I need to USE them)
  3. Weeded the garden.
  4. Taught the kids how to take out the trash, wash the dishes, and attempt folding laundry.
  5. Walked kids to school several times this week.
  6. Stayed at the playground twice until dinner time.
  7. Caught up on critiquing (mostly).
  8. Finished my part in judging a contest.
  9. Created my newsletter webpage signup.
  10. Created my website banner.
  11. Read for pleasure.
  12. Started writing a Space Opera novella. *bounce*
  13. Signed a contract for a category length novel!

Nice going on the contract! For me, spring is over when I have to run the fans in the bedroom and living room 24/7 until November.
