Come listen to the ramblings and assorted babblings of a crazed mother and newbie author. It might not always be helpful, but it should be amusing.

Just having fun. . .

Whew! Time to take a minute and relax. I've done a lot of relaxing today, and you know what? The world hasn't come to an end, my house hasn't fallen down around my ears (although it does look like a bomb went off in it) and my children aren't covered in filth and running around like barbarians. I guess it's okay to take a break every now and then.

Lately I've been very busy with edits, trying to write my latest book, running the children to soccer, CCD, dance and pre-school, going to work, and oh yeah, making sure everyone in the house has food and clean clothes. Today I should have been writing, but instead I plopped my butt on the couch and read a book in my jammies.

My 3 year old played dolls next to me or climbed up on my lap and took a nap, she didn't care that I wasn't writing, or editing she was just happy to have me around.

I guess we all need a lazy day every now and again. I know I'll feel guilty about this day next week when I'm behind schedule and my characters are making me nuts, but for today I'm feeling pretty darn content.

It's a nice change. . .

Hope everyone has a great weekend. Oh, and thanks everyone for the comments, Chey, I love your blog! You are too sweet, and Mary, don't worry I'd never rework something and send it back to the same publisher without them requesting it. I've got other ideas already perculating and that book is already in another publisher's slush pile, hahhahaha.

    What a nice day you had! I'm leaving for Nashville on Wed. and may not have any time to write until I get back on the 12th. So I have a lot of writing to do between now and then!

    I don't know how you do it with the little little ones. Mine are now 9, 13, and 17, so they can keep themselves pretty busy!

    I'm having that kind of "all about me" weekend with lots of relaxation, working on my on projects and so on. If I don't put in my contact lenses or don a bra until mid-afternoon, the dog doesn't care. Neither do I. :-)
