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…

Awards! Awards!

Awards! Awards!

Got the lunaescence newsletter for May today, and lo, and behold! I’m the author spotlight for the month! This is what they had to say! Author Spotlight: Tikatu. A mother of three juggling the demands of family and life, Tikatu is an accomplished fan fiction author. She primarily writes fanfiction for Thunderbirds, though she has other excellent works too. Her stories are definately worth a read! Isn’t that cool! I’ve only been on the site for two months and it…

An interesting ten days

An interesting ten days

Well, the Hubby is getting better, if you don’t count his cold. Two of the cats, Tika and Cotton, have been to see the vet (finally!) and now have been dewormed and given shots for their itchy skin (and flea treatment, as well). Boy #2 has been busy. He won his second basketball game 16-10 and was very happy. He also got a special t-shirt for scoring Advanced on the state achievement test last spring (one of five in his school to…

Interesting news from the pizza place.

Interesting news from the pizza place.

Tonight was one of the fund-raising events that the elementary school has at our local Ci-Ci’s pizza. The food is pretty good, the price is right, and Boy #2’s teacher invited him to come (on her), so we all ate there. I was very, very bad: even though there was salad there, I ate nothing but pizza and even had dessert! I’m not looking forward to my bedtime blood glucose level!   But, the most interesting thing was what Boy…

Waiting for the dam to break…

Waiting for the dam to break…

I am of the decided opinion that my muse is on vacation. It’s been hard, really hard, to write much of anything over the past few days. A paragraph or two on The White Winds, and more on Overtures, but I had a deuce of a time trying to figure out what was wrong with the rescue venue in the first place! Now I’ve got it, and it’s unique, and I think, will be funny (maybe).  We’ll see. But even writing…

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…

Put up the last chapter of Masquerade

Put up the last chapter of Masquerade

So it’s now officially complete. I’ve started writing Overtures and have chapter 9 of The White Winds well under way. People like the movie-verse fic and say it’s very realistic, and very happy. I think it’s about time that something without a lot of angst was written about the movie Alan. I mean, he couldn’t be angry all the time.   Spent a couple of hours just napping this afternoon. Tomorrow, school starts for the Girl. She’s been in such…

I AM PUMPED!

I AM PUMPED!

Went to the diabetic management follow-up seminar today and took the kids. They behaved themselves very well and even bragged on me to the others in the group when I went out to get my weight and waist measured and, most importantly, my hemoglobin A1C test. This is the test that measures your blood glucose levels over a three-month period and is very important in the management of diabetes.   According to their scales, I lost 13.8 lbs. My goal was…
