Weekend Roundup

This weekend was pretty good. Wizard is doing the three steps forward one step back method of recovery :-) Saturday was tough for him, but Sunday was so much better that he suddenly announced, “I made dinner reservations for Valentine’s Day.”

I was working in the next room and thought maybe I heard him wrong. So I got up and said, “You what?”

“I made reservations to take my witch…uh I mean my wife…out to dinner on Valentine’s Day.”

Still shocked, I said, “When did you do this?” The day before he hadn’t wanted to leave the house at all.

“Just now. On my computer.” He grinned and held up his Asus (tablet computer), so danged proud of himself. “We’ll go early so it’s not crowded but it’ll be good to get out.”

So yep, we’re going out for Valentine’s Day unless it’s a bad day for Wizard. Other than that, our Valentine’s Day will be low-key and exactly how we like it :-)

In other news, I made the reservations for the NINC Conference in Florida in Oct. I booked a room with a balcony facing the beach (the gulf) and I’m so excited. I really hope we can go.

And I worked, both on Savaged Vows and on a secret scene that I have plans for but that I can’t share yet. Because you know, I need ANOTHER FREAKING PROJECT, LOLOL! But this is something I want to do so I’m trying to work it in. Although I have to say–when I think of these ideas at 2am, they sound a lot easier than when I actually sit down to execute the idea. Thinking about something is soooo much easier than doing it!

My newsletter is going out tomorrow with two new cover reveals. I’m excited to share those!

And finally:

So how was your weekend and do you have any Valentine’s Day plans?

    Hey, three steps forward and one back is way better than one forward and three back, so YAY! Next week it’ll be FOUR steps forward. And yay for your reservations. Fingers crossed everything works out so you can go. Yay for your NINC reservations! Yay for your writing! Everything is yay this morning.

    The weekend here was pretty good. I got Wish Hits the Fan up to almost 23K. I caught a fish. The weather was lovely. It’s all good, baby.

    Happy Valentine’s Day! And Wiz is a wiz. Just sayin’… :D

    I haven’t renewed my NINC membership yet. I’m trying to figure out if it really has done anything for me. I won’t be able to afford the conference for quite some time because I’m still invested in RWA Nationals for the forseeable future.

    Do not speak of 2 a.m. projects. Just…no! I have too many of them also.

    It’s only 10 a.m. and I’m ready to go back to bed. I’ve been up since 4. 8-O

    Wizard is doing fantastic! I agree with B. E., next week he will be 4 steps forward and 1/2 a step back. He really is progressing well.

    How sweet of him to make dinner reservations. Will this be his first dinner outing since the surgery? I really hope you two get to go out and have a nice dinner. You deserve it.

    Yippie! So glad you’ve booked FL. Sounds like you’ll have a great view. The last time I was in Naples, I could see a mother whale and her baby swimming just off shore in the gulf. You get to see tons of ocean life :).

    Middle son and lady took me out Saturday for lunch and then to the Amish cheese co-op. We had too much fun and on the way home we stopped at the Amish chocolate house. I ate so many samples ;). Brought many different treats home.

    You are so funny starting a secret project. I think you’re going to have to buy larger dishes so it all fits on your plate.

    Have a great day :)!

    B.E., you’re right on Wizard. He’d doing so much better, he just gets frustrated.

    You had a productive weekend with words and finishing. Glad the weather cooperated although I think you’re having Spring weather in Feb :-)

    Silver, that’s a great point. NINC is great–if we can go to the conference. This will only be my second one. While RWA provides more with local chapters, contests, etc. RWA is a bit more of “hands on” that way.

    But if you go to RWA and I go to NINC–we can swap notes :-)

    It took me a day and a half to do my 2am project, so I’m nodding with you. TIME SUCK. I planned a half day. But it’s mostly in the can now, I can do one more pass and send it to editing when I’m ready. But Savaged Vows is screaming for me and i’m beat.

    Hope you get some rest.

    Viki, we went out last week when we had a friend stop by. Wizard did okay, but I think he’ll be even better tomorrow. His appetite is returning this week :-) Honestly he’s doing well in his recovery, he’s just impatient.

    I’m excited to go to Florida–really hope Wizard goes too.

    How lovely of Middle son and his lady! It sounds like an awesome day. I’ve never been to an Amish chocolate shop, it sounds really interesting and delicious.

    I know–doing this extra project is insane. But I have a plan…bwahahaha!! Plus this is something that bothered me a lot, and I’ll talk about why when I release this “bonus scene” into the world :-)

    Have a great night!
