Woo Hoo:)

Currently Reading: Finished Daffodil, by Anny Cook last night. I'm laughing at myself; normally I've been skipping the sex scenes and reading the plot? In this one, I discovered I was hurrying through the plot to get to the sex scenes! This entire series of hers is fantastic! I can't wait to see how she ties in Magnolia to it. And my favorite scene has to be the exchange between Pansy and Bart as they figure out the intricacies of 'dragon mating'! My kids asked me twice what I was finding so funny! Good job, Anny:) And since Magnolia comes out before my birthday, I may make that my gift to myself...Am I now caught up on all of your books? I'll have to check.

Next up: Confessions of a Nympho, by Ashley Ladd; Mad About Mirabelle, by AJ; and Going Down, by Tea Trelawny.

For a day that certainly started off on the sucky side of things, it ended on a very good note!

-The plumber came out and fixed my drain; mass personal grooming followed by everyone in the household. I also did two loads of laundry, as clean jeans were in short supply.

-Got word that my mother has been moved out of Critical Care and may be going home today! Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers:)

-An exciting thing is about to happen in my publishing efforts; I don't want to jump the gun and start yelling about it, because details still need to be hammered out. I'm superstitious enough to not want to jinx anything. So bear with me; more details will be coming soon!

-And so far today, my internet/PC is cooperating with me. I've not had any problems logging on or even posting this. Will it let me check my AOL mail? Probably not, but that's okay. I'm getting used to the laptop now.

-I even managed to write two full pages last night! And I have an idea of where the story might lead. I officially signed up for NaNo again (since I talked my friend Travis into doing it, I might as well do it again too! I'm just not going to kill myself in the process like I did last year. But you never know; watching his word count rise might spur me into action!) and might make this story my NaNo project. Or any of my other wips. Not in the rules, you say? I don't think they'll quibble over a 500-word count head start!

Cool! I'm glad your mother is better!

Thank you so much for your kind words about Daffodil. I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Any is the best! She can combine humor and sex better than anyone.

That was my favorite scene from Daffodil. So funny.
