Seriously. Thank God. I really need the weekend right about now. It has been an incredibly long week and I fully intend to' 'nap when the baby does' tomorrow. That really has to be the best advice I ever received as a new mom. The whole sleep when they sleep thing. Of course, these days the only time I can get anything done is while the little miss is asleep. If she's up, she's in to something. Guaranteed. But I am going to give it a shot since I have been fighting my sinuses all day. I feel like poo.
I haven't really looked at my to-do list for this weekend, but I will step out on a limb and say I don't think this will be the most productive weekend. DH has to work all weekend, so I'm playing single mom. I intend to spend most of tomorrow in my pj's. If I am feeling ambitious, I may attempt to make funnel cakes. I do plan on squeezing a little writing time in, though. 
It is high time that I get back to my writing. I just wish I had a writing group to go to. Now that I have cleared up so much space in my week and made sure to stress the importance of mommy time to my family, I wish I still had a group to attend. I used to. There were three of us who met up once a week or so to talk writing. The group kind of dissolved while I was pregnant with Bug. One found fame. The other moved on.
I keep wondering if I should try to sort out a new group. If I remember correctly, I was the one who suggested that group on my university forum. The only thing is, I would love to meet with writers who are writing in a similar genre. I remember doing a critique on a manuscript which didn't really interest me in the least. The same woman returned the favor. If one thing was clear it was that neither of us understood the others' work. If I go the group route again, I want to find people who understand my genre  a bit better. I think they would be able to give me more insight and I could return the favor.
What do you think? Are you a member of a writing group? Is it genre specific or varied and do you think it makes a difference?
