Monday Craving

Saturday we had to go to a funeral, but on the upside, we got to see a lot of family and friends. Sunday I worked. I am getting deep into the revisions now and just need to keep my butt in the chair and working.

Here’s the thing though, I’m having a craving.

A Serious Craving! And it’s not for appletinis! No this raving looks like this:

Chocolate Dipped Ice Cream cone!

I want one, or maybe three. Not sure if it’s the stress of revising this book and hoping I get it right (or the fact that my family needs to all get and stay well), but I really want that cone.

What about you all? How was your weekend, and what’s your current craving?

    I had a great weekend. Hubby and I went on a “date” for the first time in a long time. Saw The Expendables, great movie, lots of boom boom and jokes, and let me tell ya for a sixty something old man Sly did pretty darn good. We then went for dinner, tried someplace new that was okay but nothing special. But it was nice to just spend some time just the two of us.

    Hmmm … craving. Not sure I have one, lol. I am not a big eater so food usually doesn’t interest me, but I could really go for a vacation. We’ve done a few day things this summer and are going away for the day on the 28th, but a week long vacation just wasn’t in the budget this year. Does that count?

    :drool: I haven’t had a chocolate dipped cone in forever. Stupid diet. I did break down and buy a gas station cappuccino this morning. Mmmm, French vanilla. That’ll help with my ultimate craving today – Sleep.

    The weekend was pretty good here. I set myself a goal to have this round of rewrites done by last night. I didn’t hit the goal, but I’m within six chapters of finishing. When I wasn’t editing, I spent the weekend doing yardwork, watching golf and reading. =o)

    OMG! I want! Now!!!! (Self control? Me? Nawwww….)

    I’m so sorry about all the personal trials you and the Wiz are facing currently. They seem to run in clusters so hopefully, y’all are clear for a good long while!

    My office is cluttered up with boxes and envelopes at the moment. I was supposed to make a mail run and…didn’t. I did set a deadline to have FAERIE FOOL finished. I’m gonna get right on that. Eventually…

    Oh! You need to go to the OKRWA NRCA site and nab your winner’s logo to replace the finalist. :D

    Procrastinating? Me? What was your first clue! LOLOL It’s Monday. I’m…brain dead. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it! Maybe ice cream will help. I wonder where the closest DQ is so I can get that chocolate covered cone….

    Val, so cute that you and hubby went on a “date,” LOL!!! Wizard and I love our freedom to go to movies and dinner now whenever we like since the kids are grown.

    Vacation counts! I want a vacation (aside from RWA Conf.) but it’s not going to happen for us either.

    B.E., diets are stupid, and yet, I’m really think I need to get over my diet phobia. But I do love the chocolate dipped cones! And I think a small one isn’t super fattening :-)

    Your close to finishing your rewrites! I’m jealous, I’m not quite at the half way point in mine1

    Silver, thanks. It has been a really weird spring and summer.

    The chocolate dip cone would be even better than that sundae we had :-)

    I think you need an assistant! And I had to laugh at you get right on your deadline to finish Faerie Fool!

    Thanks on the link for the logo, I’ll go over there right now!
