Happy Friday!

What…how did we get to Friday again? This is crazy! Where did the week go?

In case you missed it on Twitter and FB, if you can read an excerpt from OBSESSION here.  The book is at the formatters, so now I’m just waiting. It’ll be a long wait :-)

In other news, my Achilles is healing great now. I technically should wait one more week before going back to the gym–we’ll see. I can walk pretty much without pain now but I know I should wait the full six weeks just to be sure. Plus I’m going to have to start slow and it’s going to hurt and be frustrating.

All this means Wizard is off the hook for cleaning showers and vacuuming :-) Man I could get used to him doing all that! He was really sweet about it, but I’m starting to feel guilty. So this weekend I’ll just clean bathrooms myself, and of course, work. Oh and we might go see a movie–Wizard wants to see RUSH.

What are you all doing?

    Friday?? WTH? Wasn’t it just Monday? Who keeps speeding up the clock? Squee for Obsession being at the formatters. Yay for healing. You’re doing the right thing by waiting. Don’t want that sucker to re-injure itself and then set you back. Although, the whole husband-cleans gig sounds good. ;o)

    The first of my plants is supposed to arrive this weekend – the astilbes (yeah, never heard of them before either) and the pink peonies – so I should be putting those suckers in the ground after I dump more potting soil in the beds. I should clean some, write some and do constructive junk the rest of the time, but I’ll most likely read and watch football.

    Excellent news on your Achilles. If you can wait the extra week before hitting the gym. If you’re like me that will be very difficult ;).

    Wizard has been a great guy helping out. RUSH would be a nice treat for him. All the reviews have been great but you’d get – I mean have to look at Chris for the entire movie ;).

    I’m very anxious to read OBSESSION. Second week of Oct. right?

    Don’t know what this weekend will hold. John’s 92 yr old mom took a fall yesterday and was taken to the hospital. They cleared her to go home but we’re all kind of watching if you know what I mean.

    Have a great weekend :)!

    Shh I am hiding this week end in my bed under the covers no mom is not here…….. Ok I wish. Son runs a half marathon starting at 8am on Saturday. Daughter is PMSing and at age 11 is not handling it well. Husbands eye doc appointment went well- He is legally blind but may recover some sight. It will be 3 months before we really know what sight he might have. He is manic right now between depressed and angry. He and my daughter are really setting off the sparks from one another. And I have had the most stressful week at work in all of my 6 years of being here dealing with a client crisis.

    But it is Friday :-P :-P and I will go hide in the laundry room for a few hours this weekend. I have my lawn chair and will get my ice tea and a book and have my time. Although it might be a Fuzzy Navel instead of tea. Hey does Ram want to help me fold some Laundry? or anything else?

    Follow doctor’s orders, Jen! Don’t make me send Sloane after you. Just sayin’! LOVED the snippet. :D Can’t wait for the books!!! <3

    Kat, you deserve a Fuzzy Navel and hours to yourself! My sympathies with your husband. Mine is facing serious physical limitations and I go from wanting to kill him to wanting to…kill him! He doesn't take frailty well at all. :roll:

    Viki, sending good thoughts to you and your family. Here's hoping John's mom does okay!

    B.E. Astilbes are cool looking! I think you'll like them. If I ever planted a fairy garden again (I had one of those at the haunted house where we lived), astilbes would be right there again.

    Have a great week, everyone!

    B.E., cleaning is overrated, which explains why my house looks like it does. Even with Wizard helping, I need to really clean.

    Your garden is going to be beautiful!

    Read and watch football! Enjoy your weekend!

    Viki, unfortunately not working out is making my lazy. The first couple weeks it bothered me, now I’m fat and lazy :-( But once I get back in the routine,it’ll be okay.

    I’m so sorry about John’s mother–those falls are scary. I hope she’s truly okay but you guys are smart to keep an eye on her. I’m thinking of you and your family.

    Kat, wow a fuzzy naval? that takes me back, LOL! I’m sorry you’re having a rough time of it. Since I only raised boys I didn’t have to deal with the PMS thing with daughters. My boys were moody enough :-) And when I was moody, I had one line for them– “Today is not the day to mess with me.” all three boys took a giant step back and when I said that.

    I’m glad there’s a least a smidge of positive news that your husband could get a bit more sight. You getting hit with a double does of dealing with the physical disability and the emotional fallout of depression and anger. It’s a lot for anyone to handle.

    Enjoy your laundry and relaxation! I’m sure Ram would be happy to help since I’m ignoring him :-)

    Silver, thanks! And congrats on getting your ARCs! Sounds like you’re setting up a great release for the book!
