On the crafting front, I'm completely counting the fact that I bought new sewing needles. That's one step toward the massive assembly line project I need to start. Soon. I don't have fabric. I haven't made a pattern yet. But I have needles. And that's a start.
But that's not all . . .
Actually, I took that picture some time last week. As of this morning, Ella is at 60%, and I woke up early this morning to hit the 10k mark. So now I have an "O" sticker and am officially at 20%, which (yes, by the way, thanks for pointing it out) is not where I should be to finish this month. But that's ok. I'm totally cool with that. And I have plenty of time to catch up. The key is that I wrote every day. Even just a little bit. Even on really cruddy days. And that ain't nothing.
(For the record, Harper is not actually writing anything. I bought her a special notebook when I bought Ella's, and Harper gets a sticker if she sits at the table and "writes" on a page while we get our work done. It works. Behold, the power of the sticker!)
