*Someone* needs to go on a diet. I’m not saying who is the FAT WITCH

Jen is the FAT WITCH!!

Jen is the FAT WITCH!!


But I will say this; IT’S ALL WIZARD’S FAULT!

Remember on Monday I mentioned that BLB (youngest son) stole my chocolate chips? Well Monday Wizard was off work and after I mentioned my missing chocolate (twelve or fourteen times) he went down to Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and bought me these:

Truffles for a FAT WITCH named Jen

Truffles for a FAT WITCH named Jen

Sigh…I’ve been eating them. I’ve been working out when I can around some physical issues but it’s been an uphill battle lately.  But life’s too short to whine about it (but not for wine!!), so I’ll just keep trying…

Now for work. I was REALLY close to a melt down when I emailed my editor and told her the book would be later than March 30th. She emailed back that’s not a problem at all, she doesn’t need it until July. YAHOO! I really only needed a few weeks so I’ll have it in well before that, but it’s a big relief. I’m trying to dial back the stress I’ve been putting on myself lately, and enjoy the process more.  So that’s what I’m doing and happy about it.

In other fun news, my new laptop is on it’s way! Now I’ll have two updated computers a desk top and laptop–something I waited nearly two years for.  As much as I use the computer, it’s necessary.  Wizard gets to use them too so he’s really happy.

And just because it’s Wednesday, here’s a random guy:

    Ha Ha – I love the drawing ;). You are NOT fat. The fact that you’re able to do all you do, have some issues and get in a workout here and there is great.

    First – I love Rocky Mt chocolate. You have got to get their chocolate covered coffee beans. They are the absolute best! Wizard is so good :), he picked out some really yummy looking truffles.

    Great news from the editor. Taking some of the pressure off is wonderful. Now maybe Wizard will get a truffle without loosing his hand ;).

    I like this guy :).

    Have a wonderful day!

    Somehow I can’t picture that you’re anywhere near as bad as that witch. I wish I could just tell you to quit worrying about it – cuz that’s what I did and it’s very freeing – but I know with your joints, you kinda have to. :hugs: So glad you didn’t have to melt down. Now that the pressure’s off a little you’ll whip that book into shape. And yay for the new ‘puters! =o)

    This guy would be okay if not for his tats. And it’s not the fact that he has them this time – it’s his choice of subject matter. The Virgin Mary praying over a rose and ‘Mi Vida Loca’ tattooed across his chest? Seriously? Dude, WTF? Shouldn’t there be some kind of cohesive theme to tattoos? You’re either deeply religious or you’re a badass crazy guy. ;o)

    You. Are. NOT. Fat. Just sayin’. Me? I’m fat. I know the difference. ;)

    Wiz is evil but his heart’s in the right place.

    Yay for awesome editor. Now take a deep breath and work through the issues. I’m still working on my 1st three chapters for Book 2 proposal. Chapter 3 has great tension and sets up a major plot/turning point. Now I just have to get through Chapter 1 and 2. :roll:

    This guy doesn’t do it for me. Sorry. :( Back to my cowboys. Work, work, work. ;)

    Viki, I felt really fat last night when I wrote the blog–Wizard cracked up when I showed him the picture.

    It was sweet of him to go buy the truffles, and we split them evenly. They are expensive so we only get them every once in a while.

    Thanks on the pressure, I just have so much I want to write, but write takes time so I have to be patient.

    B.E., my one new computer has already made a huge difference. I was working on a dying machine…not really good for productivity. Getting two work spaces (we both use them interchangeably) has helped a lot too.

    I’m half teasing about the fat, but you are right on my joints. But my weight isn’t about what other people think, its how about I feel. I’m past trying to please others :lol:

    Silver, if I can’t be fat then neither can you!

    The book is shifting and aligning so I’m not too worried this second. Chapter one and two set up is important, then the twist at end of chapter three is perfect for what you’re writing, I wish I planned like that. Those turning points end up in my books–but it’s an ugly process to get them there. Yours is much cleaner and more effective!

    How’s the baby doing? Is he sleeping much? Only recovering okay? She had a long labor. I really felt for her.
