It's time to Celebrate the Small Things with Lexa Cain! TheCyborgMom and I are happy to be her co-hosts.
Over the past couple of weeks, I've been trying to take care of myself. I've been exercising some and eating healthier, and as a result, I've lost nine pounds. Trust me, I can stand to lose a fair bit more, but the change has me feeling more energetic already.
My kids have been on spring break all week. I've taken them to the park, they've had movie nights where I let them curl up on the floor with blankets and some popcorn. They loved that! It doesn't seem to matter that we haven't done anything really exciting. Those boys have been having a great week off enjoying the simple things.
I've been doing a lot of writing and editing. I've gotten a couple of rejections back on submissions, but I'm not letting that discourage me. Rejection is part of the game, and no one can get rid of me that easily.
What would you like to celebrate?
The Express Yourself Weekly Meme is hosted by Jackie @ Bouquet of Books and Dani @ Entertaining Interests.
This week's prompt is: Everyone has at least one subject matter they are self-proclaimed experts in (pop culture, monsters, robots, etc. What is yours?
Does it count if I say that I'm an expert in useless trivia? There's a reason I wipe up the floor with my competition when I play trivial pursuit. I usually do, anyway. The sports and leisure category is my weakest area, but I still do decently enough in it that it doesn't cripple me too bad. When it comes to categories like science, literature, history, and other things like that, I retain a lot of snippets of knowledge that aren't all that useful outside of trivia games. Except for adding little interesting details into the stories I write, of course! Now, if I'm playing a pop culture version of trivial pursuit, then that's a different story.
What do you consider yourself to be an expert in?
