Wouldn't it be wonderful to just have one more day of weekend? *sigh* It is always hard for me to get up on Mondays and face the week. My tummy hurts a little this morning too, so not sure what's going on there. G and I had a great weekend together. We decided on a whim to go see the movie "I am Legend" on Friday night. I think I mentioned wanting to see the movie at about 9:45, so we looked it up and the last showing at the theater near us was at 10:10. We quickly got ready and sped out to … [Read more...] about It’s Monday again…
My pomeranian, Snickerdoodle, (aka "snoodle")is the ultimate morning person, except that she's not a person. Of course, like most small dogs, she thinks that she is a person. At night, she sleeps in her crate in the guest room. Much like me, she goes to the bathroom and then happily snuggles up in her warm blanket at bedtime. Where we start to differ is that while I am cranky and never want to get out of bed in the morning... Snickerdoodle can't wait. I don't know if she is more excited … [Read more...] about A "Morning Dog"
I think that most of us have a love/hate relationship with Christmas. You think you have all this time to get everything done, but then suddenly you look at a calendar and it's December freaking 12th already. How did that happen? So, here is it, less than two weeks till Christmas now, and a to-do list 10 miles long. It really makes you wonder if it's all worth it. I mean, in some ways, it's wonderful that we have a holiday where you are guaranteed to get and give presents to everyone … [Read more...] about Christmas Cheer
Well, the first 10 finalists have been posted at http://www.bravaauthors.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=5 , which means that they are halfway through announcing, and I have half as much chance to still make it. I guess I am following the age-old adage of "Hope for the best, but expect the worst." Honestly, though, I already know the results. I entered the competition with absolutely no experience. Part of me had hoped that I just had this amazing natural ability and that I didn't need any … [Read more...] about Halfway There
It seems like this weekend just flew by. G and I picked out a beautiful Christmas tree on Friday night, and we spent part of the weekend decorating it and cleaning up some things in the house. We also went to see The Golden Compass on Saturday night. Yesterday was spent more on the computer and in the bed than anything else. We watched Eragon while lying in bed, then took a nap after that. It just seems like, all in all, there wasn't enough weekend to go around. I love having G home with … [Read more...] about Weekends Go Too Fast
There is just something about snuggling up with a good romance novel when it's getting cold outside. In the name of research, I went to a bookstore and picked out a couple of Harlequin's latest romance titles. The first one I decided to read is "Snowbound" by Janice Kay Johnson. Sure, it's light reading, but isn't that a good thing when it comes to leisure time? The book is about Fiona, a 28 year old private school teacher who is caught in a snowstorm along with eight of her … [Read more...] about A Good Book When it’s Cold
