Frenzied February / Muddled March
A lot has happened in the past two months, that's for certain, though the ghastly accomplishments list might make it appear otherwise. I did succeed in getting 'Furthest Leap' polished and posted, and in finishing my final round of edits (pre-editor, that is) for my first Triune novel. Had a great time in Florida with family, though I've been doing penance since then via loads of exercise and longer fasting to dump the weight gained with all that fabulous food and sweets. I also finished with the art project that has been very troublesome--only got it done a year and a season late!

Progress with revisions to the third Geren book have been slow; prep-work for the second Triune novel nonexistent. Life went wild in the middle of February when Mary was taken to the hospital, discovered to have an aortic dissection (ascending), rushed into emergency surgery that was seven hours long, then spent nearly a week in ICU before transitioning to less intensive care. I'm so blessed my boss let me take 2-hour lunches the first week after Mary's surgery, so I could visit them in the hospital over lunch (or visit the family when I wasn't allowed in ICU). That made it hard to leave for Florida, but thankfully she kept improving. By the time I got back, she was in transitional care. She got to go home on March 25th (praise God!) and I'm thrilled my family went in with me on my idea to have a special gift waiting for them.

Pass 1 Highlight/comment potential edits & revisions COMPLETE!

Pass 4 Highlight/address bad habits and trouble spots not yet started
Pass 5 Verbal read-through not yet started
Pass 6 Thorough review with different font and page layout not yet started
Pass 7 Final sweeps not yet started

As for April, I'm really hoping and praying Mary will continue to improve. Taxes are all done, and I've lost enough weight I don't need to spend inordinate amounts of time exercising. Hopefully I can keep making progress on pass 2 of the second Geren book and wade into the challenge of assembling the outline for the second Triune novel, if not further. Can't forget the next pair of art projects, either. And maybe even get out to enjoy spring!
