Java With Jo

Life has been kind of crazy the last couple of months, so if you haven't heard or seen much of me on the blogworld it's because of the numerous activities that I am trying to keep up with!  You know that everything I participate in is optional, but it is just so much fun!  I spent last weekend shopping with some friends in the Twin Cities and we had a marvelous time.  Between all of the food, shopping, and fun, I was tuckered out by Sunday night.  Did I mention that I also discovered a new Cinnabon location?  Ya, I'm a happy camper!

And how about those Green Bay Packers this year!    GO PACK GO!!!  I also want to take this moment to extend my sympathies to all of the Vikings fans that are reading this.  It really is too bad that you are cheering for the wrong team, again.  he he

Last week I met with my book club to discuss House Rules by Jodi Picoult.  What a great book that was and it definitely sparked an interesting discussion as Picoult tackles another controversial subject.

I am all done with my memoir writing workshop which was a great experience.  I picked up some great tips from this class and now I just need to implement these skills into my daily life.  Writing is tough and I know that I need to somehow practice my skills on a daily basis.  I think I may have too many activities once again, that may prevent me from pursuing a writing project, so how do I decide what to cut back on when everything is so much fun?

It's a busy time of the year, so I can relate. I'm glad you're getting to do some fun things!

GO PACK GO!! So awesome!!!

I missed having you around but I totally understand. I am scheduling a bunch of stuff to take me through the end of the year and then I am off in a big way. Last week of work. Woot!

Sounds like you have a lot on your plate, but at least you're having fun!

I'm so glad that the class went well. I love Aaron Rodgers....I cannot tell you what a great fantasy football quarterback he is! :)

Have a great holiday!

Hi Jo-Jo! That is wonderful you are writing and taking the craft seriously.

Packers are fun to watch. I'm a Steeler fan by marriage, but always had a soft spot for Denver. I am really enjoying the Tebow Time!

I usually head home (Minneapolis) for Christmas, but not this year. I am so envious that you did some retail therapy in the twin Cities.
and yes we are in mourning at my house regarding the Vikings...

Glad you're back :)

Glad your writing class went well. If she does it again, I'd be interested. If you can get writing done right now,great. Otherwise, give yourself permission to take a break. Enjoy the holidays and your family and get back on track after the dust settles.

Diane: Kudos to all of you authors for the hard work you do!

Beachreader: Heading back to St. Paul tomorrow to get my daughter...one Christmas I need to see the Holidazzle though!

Angie: I am planning to set some time aside during my time off to tackle some writing...but I will also set time aside to relax! he he

As long as you are having fun, the writing will come.
