Resolutions–at last

Resolutions–at last

I’ve taken my own sweet time trying to figure out some New Year’s resolutions for myself this year. I’ve a bad habit, as many people have, of making resolutions and promptly breaking them. But I think I have a couple this year that I can stick with. One, is to try and get back with FlyLady. When I was working with her system, my house stayed cleaner and my life felt better organized. I’d like that feeling again. Two, to…

Second test down…

Second test down…

And a happy Father’s day for all the dads I know… including my own, my FIL, and my beloved Hubby! As the title states, the Girl took the second of her College Board tests – the ACT – yesterday. She said it wasn’t quite as hard as the SAT and she was glad she didn’t have to write an essay. Hubby had Friday and Saturday off as his regular days off, and spent much of yesterday digging post holes for…

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…

Chapter 35 is ready…

Chapter 35 is ready…

but I’m not putting it up until I get some reviews on Chapter 34! I’ve been putting these things up so quickly and it’s time to slow down just a bit. I won’t have a lot of time tomorrow for Chapter 36 with IR:TNP brainstorming and all, but I’ll do what I can. There may be an extra chapter in here somewhere. It depends on how much material I have left.   The AC keeps spitting water out at me….

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…
