June Reading List and May Recap

Youngling passed IREAD and did well on ISTEP tests; we were also approved for the K-12 home schooling program,  Yay me....I'll be homeschooling a 4th grader next year.

I was also very happy with the outcome of this year's Indy 500!  If I have any time on my hands this week, I'll post pics.

Books Read:  9, with three DNF.

Karaoke:  One more song added to 'good' list:)

Health/Exercise:  Managed to lose four more pounds:)  Total loss:  20 lbs since Sept:)  Also took a free hearing test and discovered I have 60% hearing loss in my right ear.  Dr is right after all; there IS no fluid behind the eardrum.  I'm simply experiencing true deafness in that ear.  Good news is left ear is working perfectly:)  Just need to get some wax out of it.

Writing:  Began another wip, for a submission call for RP.  Received my highest royalty to date; sold 36 copies of Endless Love in Jan, thanks to that Best Of award:)  (Came in 2nd).  Still no word on alien book acceptance/rejection.

MDQ and ME are back for the summer, and as I write this, we've had them just over 24 hours and I really need to go get a bottle of wine tomorrow.
