Mondays Are Unacceptable

We should do something about Mondays.  I already know that today is going to be a challenge.

This was me, on my birthday last week…

Sure I have thick legs and pool hair ( you probably can see how wavy/funky it really is). But I apprear semi-normal, yes?

This is me after dealing with computer problems Sunday, and knowing I have to call MacAfee today…

Sigh.  Monday’s suck.

Other than that,  my weekend has been pretty good.  I’ve gotten started on my revisions for Key’s book  SINFUL MAGIC. For a week, I’ve sort of been frozen, not sure how to begin, but I finally slapped myself (Wizard volunteered for the job of slapping me, but I turned him down)  and got to work.

And speaking of Wizard, he is still coming up with possible Alternate Endings from my latest Dumb Witch Story of going in the wrong restroom.  One of his favorites is seeing my picture flashed on America’s Most Wanted.  Every night he treats me to a new scenario. And much laughter. At my expense.

So how was your weekend?

    My weekend was quiet, just how I like it.

    I hope your computer problems are solved.

    Have a good Monday.

    Busy, Busy, Busy, lol.

    It was my family weekend so lots going on. Friday was cookout at my cousins house. Saturday was get up early to send the boys and friends off for Mayhem Fest (a concert), they had to drive 4.5 hours to get there. Daughter and I picked up her best buddy to go to the family breakfast after which we went school shopping because I had a coupon only good on Saturday, rushed home to cook something for the family picnic, then went to picnic. At the picnic a few of the more adventurous adults played the kids in volleyball and actually won, loads of fun.

    After the picnic my daughter had a sleepover. Poor girl has been asking for years to have a bunch of girls over, but we couldn’t figure out what to do with dad and brothers, so with all the boys out of the house (I made them get a hotel room after the concert, just to far away to come all the way home when it didn’t end till almost midnight) it was party time, lol. Sunday was cleaning up and making dinner for a houseful of kids.

    Thankfully not much going on next weekend except hubby and I belatedly celebrating our anniversary, it was yesterday but just no time to do anything.

    I spent the weekend in bed trying to recover from “con crud”. I’m still alive so that’s a good thing.

    I hate computer problems! I get so frustrated, especially when I have to deal with tech support and English is their 3rd or 4th language! They read from a script. If you problem isn’t covered by the script, they can’t help. *blerg*

    One thing about being sick in bed, I caught up on all the TV shows I had DVRd. I have some new favorites this summer. Today, though, it’s all about getting back to work. Ms. Editor 1.0 scolded me about not even being close to finishing the first draft of the third FAERIE book. I’m wending my way through emails that need answering and notifying NRCA winners who didn’t attend that their trophies are in the mail (or will be when I get out and about again–Lawyer Guy’s truck is in the shop so he has Drover, my Highlander. :( )

    And witches? Don’t let Jen fool you. She has great legs and is just as cute as a button. Just sayin’…. ;)

    Dru, glad you had a nice weekend! My computer probs won’t be solved until I make myself call tech support, and I’m procrastinating.

    Silver, you really got the worst of that crud! A lot of people got sick, crowds and traveling play havoc with our immune systems. I hope you recover fast now!

    I saw those trophies, good luck mailing them! The job of chairing that contest is enormous!

    Ohhh, sorry about the scolding from your editor. She should see how much work you do!

    And quit making me blush. I am average and lumpy, LOL!

    I had a pretty good weekend. Friday I had the night off work so I was able to sit and relax that night. Saturday, some friends and I went to see Shinedown’s Carnival of Madness tour. My best friend met the rest of us there as she came from the opposite direction. She bought a CD at the souvenir stand and got a meet-and-greet with Shinedown. The B@#ch!!!! 5 bands – 10 Years, Sevendust, Chevelle, Puddle of Mudd and Shinedown. Between the 5, they played for about 6 hours. It was awesome. Shinedown was totally freakin amazing. I can’t wait to go see them again :-D

    Val – happy belated anniversary!

    Silver – hope you’re feeling better!

    Jen – I agree. Mondays really SUCK!

    That’ll teach me not to comment first thing in the morning… I end up coming late.

    I think you look awesome, Jen. And you so do not have thick legs. As for the pool hair, your hair looks summery and cute to me. So there. =op

    Glad to read you tackled the issues you’re having with Key’s book. I hope your Monday got better, and I wish you a happy birthday – even if it belated (and a little late in the day).
