Beautiful Life

Yeah, okay....so I'm in one of those moods. I could just hug you guys today. But, I won't. Probably because I'm soooo sore, I can't raise my arms. Yesterday was such a beautiful day. Our patio area is the link we have to the outside world. We live in a commercial building, downtown on a busy street. But my hubby built a 9 ft. metal fence so we can have privacy. Welllll, I had let the patio become overrun with trash and a bunch of crap. The pool I struggled to put up last year....holes. My buddy Rae calls them Smurf's pots. It was big, and very blue. Anyhoo...I got it taken apart yesterday and we worked all day, but the patio is clean. As spotless as it can ever get. I wonder how long it will last? Three dogs and two boys? I'll give it a day or two.

I woke up very sore, but in a fantastic mood. That's my little one's new word for the week. Fantastic. I have a busy week ahead, but I feel very optimistic. LOL. Just check in with me at the end of the week. I will spare you though and NOT post a picture. You can thank me later. My reservation has been made at the hotel where our conference is to be held. My OKRWA group will have a dinner, Friday night, and it's kinda like a meet-and-greet with the editor and agent. Hopefully it'll make me a little more comfortable on Saturday for both pitches.

Hope ya have a "fantastic" day.

You killed two birds with one stone - got the patio cleaned and burned some calories at the same time!

Stay in that positive mood. The conference is going to be wonderful and you're going to dazzle them with your pitch!

I weighed this morning and lost the two pounds I had gained back. Even though I was sore this morning, the loss motivated me to exercise. But it also feels good to have the patio done. I think we'll eat lunch out there today and maybe plant some flowers.

Ooh, are you pitching at that conference? Hope you nail it girlfriend!! You do sound excited. Nothing like a little muscle fatigue to make you feel great. Not that mine know what that is LOL
Should we try to make weird sentences out of these funny word verifications??? It might end up bigger than blogger itself LOL

Sometimes diving into something else is the best thing to get the creative juices flowing (or stop the procrastination tide).

Bully for you!
