Happy Friday!

Happy Friday the 13th! Let’s prove the superstitions wrong and make it a great day!

I’m working through revisions on Obsession.  It’s just long days of working and griping because I can’t work out (thanks so much Achilles, you and Insomnia are both off my Christmas list) or do a whole lot of physical activity yet.

This weekend I’m either going to be working, unless I find away to get arrested by this guy:





Nah…my luck just isn’t that good :-) So I’ll just work.

What are you all doing? Tell me it’s something fun!

**I got a “missed schedule” notice and this blog didn’t post when it was supposed to go up. I don’t know why that happened, I guess it’s just the the gremlins of technology. I’ll try to get it to post now.**

Today is a quickie post, I have revision and need to get on those, while writing The Cowboy Marine. So here is our candidate;


So what do you think?

Weekend Roundup

Working and going in the pool is the sum total of my weekend. Oh and I read a new adult book Dear Rockstar but Emme Rollins. It was the first book in a New Adult Romance Boxed Set I bought. It started off a bit slow for me, but picked up a little ways in. I didn’t love it, but I enjoyed it.

I’m diving into writing my new book, The Cowboy Marine (working title)  while waiting for edits on Obsession. What is surprising is that this book started without as much agony as is customary for me.  But I’m not complaining! Since I tend to write in layers, it’s okay if the pages aren’t super strong yet, I’ll go back and layer as I discover more and more about the characters.

Wizard, however, is busier than usual doing things like vacuuming for me. There’s an upside to that thing I don’t want to talk about. (Achilles injury) But I’ll talk about it long enough to say that I’m healing well, we’re just being cautious.

And okay, Wizard jumping up and down, pushing his hands up in the “raising the ceiling” gesture and singing, “Woo hoo. Who hoo!” in a fake girl’s voice makes me laugh. Because that’s more or less what  my nieces and I were doing when I hurt myself. Except no one was saying Woo Hoo–or however that’s spelled. Every time Wizard does it,  I crack up.

So it looks like I keep saying I don’t want to talk about it but then I do :-)

How was your weekend?

Happy Friday!

This has been another of those really interesting weeks.  I have something going that makes me really happy, but can’t talk about yet. Don’t you hate that? I so hate it!  But I will say that, Indie publishing is it’s own kind of awesome.

With all the drama of my incident I don’t want to talk about any more (stupid Achilles), I totally forgot to tell you all something else. At CPA Boy’s wedding, guess who caught the garter?

There was a group of men, I’m guessing maybe fifteen? Possibly more. First, CPA Boy made a total production of taking the garter off Special K. She was blushing and he was hamming it up…

Yeah, makes a mom so proud. LOLOL!!

Then Special K escaped, the guys lined up, and CPA Boy messed around for a while being a total ham. He gets that from Wizard, I’m very serious and reserved, and I certainly don’t like to be the center of attention.


Sigh, why does not one ever believe me?

Anyway…Middle Son and BLB (Broken Leg Boy with the plates and screws in his leg) are out there. Now for long events like this that requite a lot of standing and walking,  BLB uses his cane just to ease the pressure on his leg.  He’d been using the cane most of the night, even when he danced with his girlfriend.

This time he’s out there without his cane in a group of men determined to get the garter. Hmm, how can this go wrong? But I kept my mouth shut (I know, shocking. But I truthfully trust BLB’s judgement, he usually knows what he’s doing and how to handle his leg)

CPA Boy shoots off the garter and it comes down to a match between Middle Son and BLB.  We know who is going to win, after all Middle Son is natural born athlete.

So imagine our shock when  BLB dove for the garter, slid across the floor and got it.

We’re all like…did that just happen? Seriously? Even Middle Son looked a bit shocked.

All I can say is never underestimate BLB!

So this weekend is the usual for me. What about you all? Any special plans?

**Oops I set the time wrong for this to post so it’s going up late. Sorry!**

I’m sending Obsession to the editor! Not even a torn Achilles stops me, LOL!

By the way, Wizard took me to Urgent Care–and the PA there  told me I tore/injured my Achilles which is obvious. But he refused to do an x-ray to check for fractures  and I’m just done with this whole subject. If something is fractured, it’ll heal. People heal all the time.  So lets move onto something more fun.

Here is our volunteer for today’s candidate. Well maybe volunteer is the wrong word :-) Although I swear it wasn’t me that chained him up! Really!



So what do you think?

Weekend Roundup

Happy Labor Day for those celebrating! I think we’re just staying home, maybe swimming and either BBQing or picking something up.

I’m fleshing out a few scenes and doing final edits on Obsession. And learning to let go :-)  Then it’s onto my Cowboy Marine. I’m getting excited to write that book. Logan Knight is in desperate need of some down time and  goes house on his family ranch, only to find his beloved home inhabited by a woman on the run with her baby…good times!

My weekend varied widely. Work wise, things are going really well and I’m extremely grateful for that. But Saturday I finally told Wizard I need to go to Urgent Care for my foot/ankle. But for whatever reason, the Urgent Care that’s supposed to be opened until five, closed at one and was closed on Sunday.  I was a tad frustrated but whatever…it’ll heal and it is getting better so it’s fine. I’m just going stir crazy, I can’t work out, I can do anything but work and eat.

Which some people (WIZARD I’m talking about YOU) would say it’s making me cranky.  Actually it’s making me fat and cranky but even Wizard isn’t brave enough to say that.

But today will be better! How was your weekend?
