Weekend Roundup!

So sorry for not posting Friday.  I tried to post Friday morning but my website wasn’t working.  It was very frustrating! Then the day got too busy since BLB, Middle Son and Bailey dog came out for my birthday. That was a blast. CPA son couldn’t come but he called and did all the usual good son stuff :-)

BLB got me a very cool coffee grinder for my birthday, which I love.  But the best present of all from him was that he helped me work out something I need at the end of OBSESSION.   Now my pages are really flowing because I know what I’m aiming for.  The only real problem now is finding time to write.

Saturday was Special K’s bridal shower. It was lovely and fun.

Sunday I finally had time to write!

Insomnia is my unwanted house guest right now, but I’m ignoring him hoping he gets bored and leaves.

How was your weekend?

    I wondered where you went. (Not worried because I saw you on FB, but curious.) Oh well, all fixed now. Yay! So glad you had an awesome birthday and a fun bridal shower. Very cool that BLB helped with Obsession, too. =o)

    Sorry about the insomnia. Must be something in the air because I’ve seen a lot of people saying they can’t sleep lately (myself included – which is why I’m here so damn early.) :shrug: This too shall pass.

    Other than waiting for the rain to stop so we can start landscaping, things are pretty good here. I did get a couple dry hours yesterday morning to expand the south flowerbed to meet the dimensions of the retaining wall blocks we ordered. Then the skies opened up and drenched everything. Oh, and Saturday I got to play with the neighbor’s six week old kittens. They’re sooo cute. (I’ve been staying away on purpose. I do NOT need any more cats.)

    Happy, happy birthday (again) and so glad you had a great day with the boys and that Special K’s shower was awesome. Ha! Love that BLB helped with OBSESSION. ;) I actually did quite a bit of writing over the weekend and I figured out where BLACK MAGIC is going. Now it’s a matter of getting things in the right order and filling in the blanks. :D

    B.E., at least the rain makes for soft digging. And yes, I think insomnia is in the air, though I could a solid four hours last night. I feel almost human this morning! :lol: (Operative word is “human”. 8-O )

    Happy Birthday. Your birthday and the wedding shower in one weekend. No wonder you don’t feel like sleeping.

    They say 3 a charm so if you BE and Silver are all having insomnia than it has to be all good for us readers. Since you all are up —- Get Thee to Thy Computer and Write. :lol:

    I’m gonna be a nice gal and not mention how much sleep I got last night. I can’t imagine the torture insomnia would be – I’m a zombie if I don’t get at least 8 hours. I’m sorry you and Silver and B.E. are suffering … I know my sister says she’s gets it worst in the fall. She thinks it’s due to the seasonal changes (?) I don’t know.

    Well, I’m glad you and BLB worked out the end of your story. I know how I’m gonna end my first arc (sort of) but I have no idea how to end the second one. Guess I’ll figure it out eventually ;)

    Keep at it Jen !!!

    Happy Belated Bday, Jen! I’m glad you got to see two of the boys. And Bailey, of course :) Sounds like you had a busy weekend.

    My weekend was pretty boring. I went to a movie with a friend Saturday and did laundry Sunday. I spent the rest of the weekend lazing around.

    Happy Monday everyone!

    B.E. how can you resist kittens? I admire your self control! I’d be over there so much, they’d probably have to get a restraining order on me :-)

    Wow you’re getting a lot of rain. Hope it stops and you can get the flower bed done.

    Insomnia sucks. Last night was better for me, but it sounds like you didn’t get much sleep. Hope tonight is better!

    Silver, thanks. My birthday was good but it was all a blur. So insane how much is going on right now.

    Four hours still isn’t enough sleep!

    Good news for you on BLACK MAGIC WOMAN. It’s a relief to see the path, but it’s still butt-in-the-chair work.

    My morning has been derailed by ants (endless battle this summer after LONG spell of no problems).

    Kat, thanks on your good wishes. I don’t write in the middle of the night or I’d never ever go back to sleep :-) But I will read, and lately that’s about all the time I have to read, so it’s not all bad.

    Ban, I’m glad you sleep! Insomnia is so annoying.

    Sounds like you’re making progress on your book. All you can do is one step at a time and you’ll get there!

    Thanks Dawn! A boring weekend isn’t bad, and lazing around once in a while is good!

    I see a kitten and then remember all the work having cats involves – and Max is a prime example. I love my kitties, but taking on another one? Nah. Puppies, on the other hand… ;o)

    (Not getting one of those either, but I like to dream about maybe someday.)
