Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! I’m making progress on my novella–although I really need to think of a title soon. And while I’m not breaking any speed records here, I’m happy for the progress. It’s nice to be moving forward.  Meanwhile, I’m waiting for the first editorial letter on Savaged Dreams. I have all the usual doubts, but so far I’m able to distract myself. I really feel like I’m (hopefully!) getting my groove back.

Today is three weeks on Weight Watchers and I’m doing fine. I like the program because it’s real food I can work into my daily life. I doing the online version, the meetings don’t interest me. So it’s really been fairly easy so far, but I obsessively read dessert recipes like this one (recipe here):


Do you think that’s weird? But come on, they look amazing! One day, I’ll make them! Maybe for Mother’s Day :-) I plan to indulge that weekend then go right back to the program.

As for this weekend, I think we’re going to the movies to see the new Mother’s Day Comedy. Otherwise it’ll be the usual. What are your plans?

    Ack. It’s the weekend already?! Edits are due back this weekend. I have a couple other projects I went back to working on yesterday. The Kid is due to arrive here for a week-long visit on the 7th. And I’m supposed to launch Fertile Ground in May. :panics a little:

    I may need your super-chocolate brownies. Or donuts. Or Peanut M&Ms. And loads of coffee. It’s times like this that I question the wisdom of quitting alcohol. ;o)

    Yay for making progress with your writing and your health goals. I was at the doc’s office yesterday for a yearly visit and found I’d lost 3 pounds since I was in there last month, so it’s all good.

    B.E., I know what you’re doing if edits are due back. Hang in there, you’ll get it done!

    That brownie does look good!

    Awesome that you lost three pounds. You’re pretty active on your property and I’m sure that helps.

    Have a great weekend!

    Don’t let those doubts get to you. We have faith and know that all will be good. I’m really looking forward to Savaged Dreams, so I’m sending you positive vibes ;).

    I want those brownies ;). I think I’m going to make this Mocha Java Pie w/ Kahlua cream recipe that I got from Taste of Home for Mother’s Day. I don’t care if the rest of them won’t eat it – I will :).

    Have fun at the movie. It looks like it will be cute. Hubs is taking me out for Lobster Bisque Sat. I can’t wait.

    Have a great weekend!

    Viki, thank you for the vote of confidence! And I would totally eat your Mocha Java Pie with Kahlua!

    The movie had funny moments but had too many story lines. But we had a nice time.

    Hope you have a great Lobster Bisque night on Saturday!

    Silver, I don’t know where the day went either. I can’t figure out where the last four weeks went. Anyway, hope you have a great weekend!
