Tuesdays with Mohrey

Sometimes I think I'm clever. I actually laughed out loud when I thought of this blog title. I'm not proud of the fact that I find myself so amusing but it does come in handy at times. Like when I'm by myself and need to be entertained.

Tuesdays. I cherish them. They're my day off. Or my days on, whichever you prefer. On Tuesday mornings I hang out in some coffee shop with my laptop and my memories.

Do you remember this post? I had three things to do by the end of the 2008: earn the Cancun trip, sell our house, and finish writing my book. Well, if you keep up w/ my blog at all you know that we accomplished the first two but I haven't kept you up to date on that last one.

It's not done. I have a couple weeks left of the year but the world would have to stop spinning on it's axis in order for the book to be finished. It wasn't until a few months ago that Russ and I agreed to kick me outta the house on Tuesdays to get to work on it. Without an assigned time, it just kept getting pushed back on the priority list. However, progress is being made! I still have no idea what I'm going to do with it once it's done, but that's not really the point. It is always a jolt of warm fuzz when someone compliments my writing but since very few have the chance to read my chapters, I have to stay focused without oodles of encouragement.

I'm really enjoying writing this account of our journey. Every once in awhile I'll go back and read previous chapters and it's like experiencing it all over again. For that reason, I will persist. I will finish. I will capture this time in written word if only for Eliot to read when he's older. And maybe someday, I'll get it published and you can read it for yourself.

And just because he's cute:
