All Aboard the Rooooooow (80) Train!!

I just realized my dorkness level based on my title alone.  Don’t ask me why these things pop in my head. Things like the Soooooul Train which used to come on television weekend mornings in Philadelphia.

Ahem. So my goals are coming along nicely.  I will be doing two guest posts shortly.  One this month at Marcia Richards’ blog which I love.   Her blog is colorful and goal oriented.  Goals rock! Go check her out.  Since her blog is so awesome and goal oriented, it makes sense that my guest post will be about goals!

The second one is over at Renee A. Shuls-Jacobson’s blog.  That post will be coming in March.  Renee is a teacher and funny.  I wish she would have been my teacher when I was a little lass.

Why am I bringing this up?  Uh, I am stoked!  I have never done a guest post.  And now I am starting off 2012 with two potentials.  This makes me feel like I am moving forward as a writer. πŸ˜€

For the rest of my goals I am choo-chooing along nicely.

Editing on my WIP is coming along better than a well-trained puppy on a leash.

Exercise is, well, not coming along so well.  But I am going to the gym today with my daughter.

I have been eating healthy! πŸ˜€

On the agenda today:  Watch post-season football – take my daughter driving – Wii for thirty minutes.

For the rest of the week:

continue to revise WIP

continue to read/comment blogs

Get three hours of exercise total in this week.

Happy ROWing! πŸ˜‰

  1. Ooh, guest posts! Congrats! Definitely a good, encouraging way to start the year, and your goals seem to be chugging along nicely. Even if the train metaphor is going to be stuck in my head all day now. πŸ™‚


  2. Love the title, cheese is good! πŸ˜€
    Congrats on the guest posts, you are always welcome to do one for my blog if you would like – cheesy would be great! lol


  3. Well, you and I must have the same level of dorkness because I caught onto the title immediately! LOL. Philly thing? Maybe.

    You are doing great. And congrats on the guest posts. I was oh so excited too when I was invited to do a guest post.

    Peace. Love. And ROOOOOOOW!


  4. Keeping going! You seem to be building up a nice momentum to keep your train on track. πŸ˜‰

    If you ever have time, I’d welcome a guest post from you, because you’re amazing. However, there is no pressure. Take care!


  5. Great job on those goals, Darlene! I’m so looking forward to your guest post on the 21st! And thanks for the mention. Keep up the good work and come join a bunch of us in a health challenge at #2012healthchallenge to keep us all accountable. We have a great group forming!


  6. Hey, really pleased your making progress on your goals… we’re looking to become a guest blogger on other peoples blogs… are there any tips you can give??? πŸ˜€


    1. Hey there.. thanks for stopping by! If you are looking to guest blog, you can put feelers out there and see if anyone is interested in hosting you.
      Or.. you can be chosen randomly by the blogger..
      There are many ways..


  7. I totally got the title. I remember Soul Train very well!

    It sounds like you’re doing great on writing goals. Exercise seems to be the hardest thing to stick to for all of us. I’m trying to change that this round. I think having a Wii is a big plus because there’s SO much to do on it.

    Good luck this week!


  8. From one dork to another, this was perfect. Thank you. (Don’t feel bad about the Soul Train quote: I frequently look on Youtube for Soul Train shorts to let my five year old son dance with me to …our favorite is Love Train by the O’Jays…how’s that for high dork quotient?)

    Congrats on the guest post!


    1. oh my gosh, that is so awesome you look for Soul Train shorts to dance with your five year old. πŸ˜€

      Thank you so much for stopping by and making me smile. Enjoy the rest of your week,


  9. Congrats on the guest posts, Darlene. Resolutions sounds so intimidating doesn’t it. Small goals are better and it sounds like you’re already checking them off your list. I can’t wait to hear more about your WIP editing.
