Whew!

Currently Reading: Finished Love Slave For Two: Beginnings last night, and am now starting on Love Slave For Two by Tymber Dalton. This one's a long one, so it will take me a while, in addition to the other craziness going on at the moment. As for Beginnings...I wondered why some characters were in the book, since I kind of knew who the story was about. But as I reached the final three chapters, it became more clear. Very well done, Tymber! I too wanted to beat the snot out of a particular character, heh heh, heh! Recommended Read:)


And the responses keep on coming....where was everyone last November? I tweeted yesterday I was up to 49 authors...now the number has climbed to 56! My poor blog has now been booked well into April 2o11...and still no word from my blogmates (Molly pouts). Sigh...I guess they get enough publicity from me when I read their books? LOL....

I'll try to think up release ditties for the Eagle's series, Barb...I've been soooo swamped with this scheduling thing, my family has threatened to shut off the internet. Hopefully things will slow down a little.

In the middle of all this madness, my MIL entered the hospital. Turns out the muscle which controls the 'flap' that closes off the trachea when she's eating has weakened, causing some of her food to go into her lungs. Right now, she's working with the speech therapist, trying to do whatever can be done in order to avoid a feeding tube. So please keep her in your prayers....Hospice is even being consulted, because she's constantly demanding attention. I took my e-reader with me last night, as I wasn't interested in the program she was watching. But as soon as she realized it, every two minutes she wanted her pillow fluffed; her feet readjusted; her tummy hurt; she wanted a drink (which she can't have at the moment, so she sucks on a wet washcloth); or she needed to roll to her other side. It literally took me ten minutes to read one page. Finally, I gave up after an hour when the program changed.

Also, the brochure I put together for our Writer's Guild has been deemed 'We can do better'. So now the person whose idea it was in the first place has taken control and is being accomplished on a home computer, rather than me sending everything to Office Max. As I told them the other night, I was tired of talking about doing it, and finally put it together with what I had. This provided a figurative 'kick in the pants' for him to take control of his idea! That's the kind of person I am; if you're going to talk about doing something, but never seem to get around to it, I'll eventually get tired of hearing about it and take action. This usually gets others involved and the goal accomplished. I mainly provide the 'kick'. Anyone else like this?

I'm off briefly to do laundry, make sure the younglings aren't hurting themselves, and to go read my friends' posts.

Have a good day and I'll try not to be too grouchy today. Had to get up extra early to meet with the MIL's doctor.
