I don’t think the weather could get any more beautiful than it has been for the last week. This is both exhilarating and depressing: exhilarating because I work at home and can cut out early to play soccer with the kids or just sit in a chair outside and read; depressing because, well, it can’t get any better.
Who am I kidding? This is not depressing at all – the fact that the beginning of summer is still 9 1/2 months away is enough to keep me happy for, well, 9 1/2 months.
Anyway, as we head closer and closer to the first official day of autumn (the best season), here are three things to be REALLY excited about:
1) The Fireside Writer’s Conference is only 43 days away. Find out more about it HERE.
HUGE FAVOR TO ASK: If you work somewhere that you wouldn’t mind posting a Fireside Writer’s Conference flyer (you know, somewhere in the lunch room or toilet stall or on your boss’s glass door), please email me at shawnsmucker (at) yahoo (dot) com and I will email one to you (a flyer, not a glass door).
THING TO BE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT #2)
It’s still not too late to donate to charity:water and support our “30 Bloggers, 30 Days, $30,000” initiative. Read more about it HERE or check out how much we’ve raised so far HERE ($4,785 as of yesterday at 4:17pm)
