Wowzers, what a weekend! Which of these things actually happened to me?
- My credit card was used for a shopping spree by someone other than me or Wizard.
- One of my kids called to tell me he was rear ended on the freeway and was waiting for auto club roadside service to show up.
- One of my girls (Youngest Son’s fiance) texted a picture of a two-week-old French bulldog with a cleft palate that they are trying to save and I volunteered to help if they need it.
So which do you think happened?
In other news, I managed to go to my meeting Saturday. It was great to see friends, and I had the chance to answer a few question from newer authors on things like contracts. I love helping when I can because so many people have–and continue to–help me in my career. I’m passionate about educating writers, the more we know, the less likely we’ll make mistakes that will resonate throughout our careers. I also got to see about half of Lisa Kessler’s talk. She was charming, sincere and more than willing to answer any questions.
Saturday night, both Wizard and I were exhausted so we went out to dinner and I made a poor choice (tamale.) Sunday I paid for that with stomach problems, but I worked as much as I could on the final synopsis in the Savaged Trilogy, I’m close but not quite there yet. It has to be right or I’m not sending it to my editor
Okay so did you all figure out which of the things above happened? If you answered ALL OF THEM, you’re right! Crazy weekend! As frustrating as all this was, we likely have the credit card thing under control, my son is okay (although I’ll double-check today to make sure–sometimes adrenaline masks pain for a awhile and it was a pretty hard hit from what I understand), and I’m truly hoping that little French bulldog makes it. I will be happy to pitch in if they need it with the little guy. It’ll make me feel great to do something positive and useful, even if I get my heart a little broken because he won’t my dog. The important thing is just doing something good out there.
How was your weekend?
