Happy Friday!

Sorry I’m late! I’ve been having major Internet issues.  It looks like I’m back online  now, at least for awhile, but I have to run out to an early morning appointment so this is a short post.

I wasted so much of yesterday, THREE HOURS with Verizon, and after three hours of going through all the tests and cyber-gumnastics, and them telling me there is nothing wrong with the line/DSL/speed/connection etc,  someone finally got on the phone and told me there was a problem in my area.  **Deep Breathe** I’m letting it go. Really….

Moving on, I do have two new covers for The Plus One Chronicles that I want to show you, so I’ll do that on Monday. I’m really excited about them! Now if only I could get this second book going.

Tomorrow, I’m going cake tasting with my oldest son, CPA boy, and his awesome finace. I’m so looking forward to that. We’re going to two different bakeries and then lunch. I have to miss my RWA meeting, but it’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make for cake, umm, I mean my son and his fiance :-)

So what are your weekend plans?

    :lol: That’s a huge sacrifice you’re making there for CPA-boy and fiancee. Is it that big snow storm that has Verizon messed up? That’s so freaking frustrating. We go through that with our TV/Cable company.

    Can’t wait to see the covers! As for the weekend, I’ll be working. I have a snarl in BRIDE’S MOON I have to untangle so I can get it to my editor. *sigh*

    Have a great weekend, witches! Now…where’s Linc with my margarita and cookies?!? ;)

    Haha! Cake tasting, huh? Can I come along? ;p I can’t wait to see the covers either! I bet they look awesome!

    My weekend will probably consist of crafting. I’ve been making cute little charms and can’t seem to stop! And I’ve been working more on my books, switching back and forth between the few whenever something pops into my head. So writing and crafts will be my big thing, I just hope whatever I’ve gotten a hold of goes away by tomorrow! Been sick (though no fever..) the past few days. yuck. Happy weekend, witches! Don’t get into too much trouble. :twisted:

    There is a weekend coming. I need to hurry and catch it before it gets away from me.

    Sat is security at a B-Ball game. any other hours of the weekend I will be cleaning and possibly moving furniture around in my bed room. The good thing is that I have tons of Laundry to do so I will find some reading time. :lol:

    Have a super 48 hours everyone.

    YUM – cake tasting :). That should be tons of fun.

    Don’t you just want to reach through the phone and shake our internet providers? They can really frustrate even the most level headed person. I’m very happy that you’re back up and working.

    I’m looking forward to your reveal on Monday.

    I don’t have much planned this weekend. The youngest is headed to CO Sat AM for a week vacation at his bosses place out there. He’s never been skiing so it should be interesting. I’ll be pushing him out of bed at 3 AM.

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend :).

    Silver, I tried to answer this morning, and couldn’t make it work. My own blog didn’t recognize me, LOLOL!!

    And yeah, dealing with Verizon was like dealing with the Satellite TV folks.

    I hope you’re able to untangle BRIDE’S MOON and get it off to your editor!

    Stephanie, hope you feel better soon! There’s a lot of icky viruses going around. Probably a good thing if you stop home, work on your crafts this weekend and try to rest.

    You’re always so creative!

    Kat, I don’t know how you’re going to find time for laundry and reading! You’ve got a pretty busy weekend lined up.

    Viki, that’s right, you’re up super early so you can wake him up. Sounds like fun weekend for him!

    I’m pretty calm, and stayed calm dealing Verizon, but I had a banger of a headache.

    Today it’s Amazon being weird. I can’t get through check out to send you the book you won on my FB page. I’ll keep trying — just know that I haven’t forgotten you!

    Jenn – No worries here. I’ve been having connection problems the past two days. In fact somehow the GFI got tripped so I’m wondering if there is some sort of electrical field power surge going on in my area.

    Have a great weekend :).

    Viki, I finally sent it. I had to go on my laptop to do it, not sure why. Probably just one of those weird glitches.

    Hope your connection problems have resolved! So far, I’m staying connected and running fine aside from the one glitch with Amazon. That could have been my Firefox browser too.

    Hi Jenn – Just picked it up. Thank you so much. Sorry you’re still having problems. The more advanced we get with technology the more it frustrates me :). Oh, I did see on the news yesterday that Java has been hacked and it is suggested that people un-install it from our computers until Java comes up with a fix. I’m passing this tid bit on to every one.
    I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend.
