Late Happy Friday!

Sorry I’m late.  Man we’ve been busy but it’s been productive or fun, so I’m happy. Thanksgiving was really nice even through we just had two kids and Bailey dog. I’m used to doing big T-Days but there is definitely something to be said for small and casual.  It was easy and fun!

Loved seeing Bailey Dog! He’s doing great in his new place, and now he has…wait for it…Spa Days. One of my son’s roommates takes Bailey to Petsmart for the full treatment.  I don’t know how Bailey does it but he gathers up all these people who fight to take care of him and play with him.

Even the dog, Penny, who he’s living with. My son was telling me they throw of toy down the stairs, little Penny runs and gets it, takes it up stairs then drops it in front of Bailey. She fetches it for him. Unbelievable.

Here’s couple phone pics of Bailey:

I love Bailey but it’s not his looks getting him this treatment.  It’s just his personality. He’s so loving and fun, unless you’re sad, then it’s his mission to make you feel better.

Even Wizard is under his spell. I know because Bailey was scoring tiny pieces of carefully selected white meat turkey from Wizard. No one else feeds Bailey people food. It’s a firm rule, but Wizard does it and our son totally lets him get away with it.

Then last night, for the first time EVER, we went out to a store to stand in line for two hours to get Wizard a camera. He wanted to leave, but I made him do it. He will buy me most anything, but getting him to spend money on himself is a major ordeal.  I finally told him if we didn’t do this, the kids would end up buying it for him. That worked!

And lastly, I got the revisions for THE PROPOSITION from the editor. I am very impressed with her work, and now I work my butt off fixing it. But I’m excited, it’s a challenge :-)

How was your Thanksgiving? And hope you all have a great weekend!

    thanksgiving was a blur but my poor doggy didn’t have it as good as Bailey. He’s the same size as your son’s dog and he gets totally overwhelmed by my sister’s monster dogs :( he just wants to be inside with the people and have some peace …
    glad wizard finally caved and got the camera he wanted – from what you say, he more than deserves it ;)

    Ban, aww for your doggy. Hope he’s getting some peace today :-) Bailey is used to being here, but if another dog were here, he’d probably be unhappy too.

    Thank you, Wizard really does deserve it, and more, just for putting up with me!

    Enjoy your weekend!

    And you thought you were late. ;o)

    Good job convincing Wizard to get himself something nice. I have the same problem with my husband, but I don’t have that kind of leverage. LOL Bailey’s da man. Chicks want him and other dogs want to be him. He could do his own commercials as The Most Interesting Dog in the World. Yay for receiving revisions.

    We had a good holiday. Didn’t do much of anything but eat and watch football. I did get a sparkly new book idea yesterday morning that I started work on, wrote and trashed 900 words, then rewrote a new beginning. Getting off on the right foot made everything fall into place. =o)

    B.E. yay on your idea! That’s always exciting. I hear you on trashing words. When I look at my cut files, I cringe sometimes at the sheer amount of words/scenes that I write and cut.

    Your husband is like that too? You need to find some kind of leverage, LOL! Took me years and years, but lately, the two older kids get more settled, they have bought him stuff that he’s wanted but won’t buy for himself .That threat worked like a charm!

    Fab idea on Bailey! Enjoy the rest of your weekend and keep writing!
