Weekend Roundup

It was a good weekend, I’m finally closing in on the end of OBSESSION. Then it’ll need some revising and clean up before I send it to the editor.  I’m too close to even guess if the book is working or not so I won’t comment on that :-)  But man, getting time to write is tough. Sunday was good though as Wizard ran some errands for me so I could write. He’s awesome like that.

What’s not so awesome is he lured me out to the pool. But that would be okay, basically just a break. But Wizard wasn’t finished with his master plan. He then made us a gin and tonics and I ended up staying out there too long when I should have been working. Bad Wizard!

And finally when I went back to “work” Wizard caught me looking at French bulldog rescue sites. I was busted, LOL! I tried to convince him it was research, but I don’t think he bought that story.

We’re just days away from the wedding now!

How was your weekend?

    You to are so cute :)! Wizard is such a good guy. He knows that you need to take time and relax. It’s sweet how he “tricks” you too.

    Great news on OBSESSION. It’s nice that you’ve noticed that you can’t be objective since you’re too close. You always get worried but it always turns out that you’ve written a great read.

    I’m surprised you got so much done this weekend with the wedding coming up. I guess you had to since you’ll be all tied up next week.

    Our weekend went well. All family stuff was nice. My birthday was last Wednesday and it seems like we celebrated constantly. My youngest took me out for dinner last night to top it all off. It was the first time he’s paid. He’s so grown up now at 21 ;).

    Have a wonderful week :)!

    Good job getting near the end of Obsession. Shame on Wizard for distracting you (and good job to him for making you relax). LOL, I just thought of something. He brings you drinks by the pool, which means you have your own cabana boy. I’m totally jealous.

    The landscaping is shaping up out here. The iris bed is almost ready for transplantation. All we need is dirt. That should be here this week sometime, along with the 1″ rock for the paths/drainage areas. Then I can move the plants around that were already here and get ready to order new plants. I’ll be posting pics on my blog when we’re through to show before/during/after. Other than that, I read a lot – Maggie Shayne’s The Gingerbread Man (free for Kindle right now, I think) and one of my manuscripts that I never edited. Fun fun fun.

    Viki, you deserve a never-ending birthday celebration! That was so sweet of your son too. Isn’t that an odd feeling when they pay?

    We were out at CPA Boy and Special K’s on Saturday. they just moved into their new condo and we were seeing the renovations. They put in a new cabinets and counter top in the kitchen and it’s so pretty. We talked about the wedding, but they have most of the details under control.

    I have no choice on working. I love writing but I’m not thrilled with this constant pressure. Once I finish the next two books, I’m slowing things down.

    I hope you’re right about Obsession :-)

    B.E. I’ll tell Wizard he’s my Cabana Boy! By the way he threatened to take a picture of me out by the pool and show you all just how hard I “really” work. Thankfully he didn’t want to risk getting his camera thrown in the pool by an annoyed wife :-)

    Your backyard is going to be so pretty! I can’t wait to see the pics! I’ve heard about THE GINGERBREAD MAN I should go snag that.

    This is all in front, Jen. Our backyard is a sloping rocky thing for about 20 feet and then it’s trees for the next acre.

    Busy week for you guys! And aren’t laptops made to be taken outside? Just sayin’… ;)

    But yeah, Wizard is bad. Very bad. You should punish him. *nods*

    Can’t wait for OBSESSION!

    Had a great family weekend but the break is over now and I have three days to get back to writing.
    I know what you mean about being too close to know if it’s working or not – I have two reader friends who help me out with that.

    Hope the rest of you week goes well and YAY for the upcoming wedding !!!
