Yesterday...

Currently Reading: I LOVED Who's Been Sleeping in My Bed by Jami Davenport! Go over to Siren Books and pick up your own copy:) I think I'll pop over to her website and see what else she has published! I loved the family interaction; I loved the climactic scene. She did a fantastic job of weaving all the elements together, AND made me curious enough about the islands to call my sister and see if she's ever been there.

Next up: Getting Naked at the Hilton by Dee Dawning and Redemption of a Cavalier by Kathy Otten.


I'm proud of myself. Why? I managed to finally break through the murky creative sludge surrounding two wips and wrote not one, but TWO pages on both, hopefully getting me closer to the romance in book #8 and more conflict in another unrelated story.

Hopefully now I can continue on a daily basis and get these books finished! They've been floating around in my head far too long, esp #8. I began this book back in 2004 and it is still only on Chapter 6. And I've restarted it twice.

This week I also have plans to finish revamping #3, and begin submitting it again. Now that my writer's group is finished with holiday and birthday parties for the next two months, maybe I can get some valuable advice from the English teacher in our group. My books from Amazon should also arrive this week.

Another thing accomplished yesterday was my photo album. I had six months' worth of pictures to label and organize. It took me three hours, but all that is left is to get the ones on my memory card from Halloween until the present to print out. And yes; pictures of Oreo will be posted as soon as I load it into the computer! Speaking of which, he has an appointment with the vet this week for shots and to see how old he is. We're guessing he's around 12 weeks old. And around April or May, he's going to get his 'Tom-Tom's' cut, as my spouse so delicately phrased it!

Today's To-Do List:
-Laundry. Apparently K unearthed a pile of clothing from under his bed. If I recognize any that I washed on Thursday and haven't seen him wear, guess where it's NOT going?
-Picking up S from her 'other' mommy, who is now riding a brand new Jazzy and requested her presence in order to help with the animals. And who also spoils her rotten...
-Visiting the MIL and taking down her tree and Christmas cards. Why did we not do this last week? She and her roomie were probably the healthiest ones in that hallway, according to the nursing staff! And my spouse decided to wait a week, so we wouldn't catch anything.

Go over to Kelly's blog and wish P a Happy 9th birthday!

I'm soooo glad you loved it, Molly. If am in love with the San Juans. I've been fortunate to have been there many times and hope to set more books there.
