Familiar, yet unfamiliar

Familiar, yet unfamiliar

School started today. The kids were up bright and early, and were ready, dressed, with breakfast eaten, lunches made, bright eyed and bushy tailed… by 7 a.m. I couldn’t take Boy #2 to school until 7:30, so we waited around (I checked my email and reviews) and at the dot of 7:30, he was out the door.   So I took them to school. Dropping Boy #2 of was fine (other than idiots parking in the car line). He got…

Just did the math…

Just did the math…

and I’ve written 13 chapters on Masquerade in 17 days. Starting with chapter 23 on July 28 and going to chapter 35 on August 13 ( posted on the 14th). Whew! My muse is panting for breath and pleading for sleep. I’ve started Chapter 36, and people are clamoring for The White Winds, so I’ve got to get back to that. Need to update again at IR:TNP also… but today, do some housework for a bit. Actually went to bed before eleven…

Woo Hoo! Goal met!

Woo Hoo! Goal met!

Went to see my GP, Dr. T.E., today about the toe. They x-rayed it and she said it looked good and I could stop buddy taping it. But of more importance was what the scale said! A loss of another 4 lbs since I was there two weeks ago! Woo Hoo! That’s a total of 16 since my visit with the diabetes management people back in April and 24 since my diagnosis in March! It is so good to reach…

Mmmmm. Toffee!

Mmmmm. Toffee!

Hubby finally brought home the container of homemade almond toffee that one of his customers gave to him. She knows I particularly love it and must have given me some from a larger batch that she made. It is so light and crispy! I had to put it in the fridge because he had left it at work for several days and the chocolate had melted. I’m only eating a little a day and I am sharing it with the kids,…

Time for coffee

Time for coffee

and a break from writing fiction. Masquerade 19 is coming along nicely. What I should do is write up some of the scenes I got in my head last night, the ones that kept me awake until five (this despite my antidepressant and Lortabs).  I am very much afraid that this particular story is going to go longer than my usual 23 chapters. Much longer.   The toe isn’t giving me the jips right now, for which I’m grateful. The…

It’s official…

It’s official…

My toe is broken. The doctor didn’t even bother to x-ray it; he said he could feel the “dimple” in the bone where the break was! Ewww! I’ve got a scrip for pain meds and I’ll go back in two weeks for an x-ray to be sure it’s healing. Good news from the visit though; according to their scales, I’ve lost twelve pounds! My goal is 15 before I see the diabetes management team in July, so I’m well on the…
