Weekend Roundup

Today is the day in the U.S. that we remember and honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

To all those who have lost loved ones, I thank you too. Your sacrifice matters, and your beloved soldier’s life may have been short, but the impact he or she had is felt and appreciated for generations.

So my weekend was good. My middle son had a big birthday and while we celebrated last weekend, I thought of him (and called him). If you all saw my FB post, then you saw that Youngest Son (BLB) went to watch Bailey while Middle Son and his girlfriend (otherwise known as our Wine Broker–a story for another time) went on a trip. But if you missed it, here’s the short recap: I texted BLB and asked if Bailey missed me. Here’s what I got back:

Bailey sticking his tongue out

Gee, I don’t know where that boy (Youngest,  not Bailey) gets his sarcastic funny streak. Or how he got Bailey to make that face–it’s priceless!

Today Wizard and I are going to the gym, I’ll write a bit then we’ll hang out in the hot tub and cook some lobster. We have been eating very well this weekend and totally enjoying it. I’m trying to stay “within reason” of my Weight Watcher points, but not really worrying about it.

As for my novella–this short book has me hooked and rewriting like a fiend. I honestly NEED to set it aside to work on the revision of Savaged Dreams, but I just can’t yet. It’s my special brand of crazy.

So how was your weekend and what are your plans for today?

    Yay for Bailey! I think BLB probably snapped a photo while Bailey was doing some personal hygiene tasks. More ‘hey, I’m licking my fur here’ than social commentary. Still an awesome shot, though.

    We did yard work Friday and Saturday. Then Hubs finished up his stuff yesterday by himself because I was being a whiny baby about my aches and pains. (My thoughts, not his.) Aspercreme to the rescue! I spent yesterday reading and watching golf. Silver’s new book kicks butt. Didn’t get much else done.

    Today? No clue. I have more yard work to do. (Neverending story there. LOL) I have writing and editing to do. I have books to read. Something will be done today. At some point. Maybe.

    Bailey is too cute and BLB reminds me of someone…hrm…I wonder who? Sounds like you and Wiz have a great day planned. Yay on the writing!

    I did a library book signing, dealt with Only’s food poisoning (long story 8-O ), am still fighting computer and internet problems so hoping this goes through, and madly trying to catch up on words because…computer/internet problems. :roll: I’m starting today’s count at 20,605. I have 16 days to hit a minimum of 48K/max of 50K. Y’all do the math. My brain is flailing (and failing) all over the place.

    Gah! And it posted before I’d finished. *Mumblegrrrsnarl* computer. And thanks, B.E.! Glad you enjoyed Hollywood and Lainey. I did get your email. It’s on my list. :lol: Do’t over do things! And yay for you being back in the writing groove too.

    B.E,. so sorry for the aches and pains. Hope Aspercream helped. I really feel for you, I’m having minor aches and pains from working so much.

    Was it NIGHT SHIFT that you read of Silver’s? I loved that book!

    Hope you have some fun today!

    Silver, it’s all coming at you at once! So sorry. I hope Only is feeling better. Food poisoning sucks the worst. And hope your signing went well.

    Fingers crossed that your computer and internet problems resolve, or at least hold off until you get this book done and off.

    I saw this photo of Bailey and laughed out loud. I think your son planned the photo as Bailey was taking a bath just to stick that pink tongue out at you ;). BOYS! They are always getting their moms. And I have no idea where he got the sarcastic nature from – not you ;).

    I would be SO ticked off if I drove to the gym and found it closed when it was supposed to be open. I feel for you. Hope you got to do a little something at home to get the blood flowing. You’d need to work off that frustration, I know I would.

    Sounds like you’ve had some yummy meals this weekend. Lobster tonight sounds great. Our ribs are about to hit the grill and I’m going to pour a nice glass of Malbec :).

    Have a great evening!

    Viki, I bet your boys make you laugh the same way mine do for me :-)

    I was so pissed about the gym! I’m mildly sore from sitting at the computer and really wanted to get loosened up on the elliptical. Wizard was ticked too. I came home, got cleaned up and did some errands to keep moving but it’s not the same. Still it’s just one little frustration in life.

    I love Malbec–hope you enjoy yours and the ribs!

    It was Night Moves, Jenn, the next book in the series. It just released and I couldn’t wait to read it. It was awesome.
