This week went by extremely too fast.  And Little Man just had to point out his school folder showing he only had about seven weeks left until summer break.  ACK!!  Really?!  Weren't they discussing the possibility of year round classes?  LOL.  I love my kiddo but it's almost impossible to get anything done when he's home.

My Friday consists of a parent-teacher conference this morning.  I'm thinking I probably should've made her some sweets to soothe her feathers.  I'm almost skeered.  Maybe I should fall on my knees and beg for forgiveness as I walk in.  LOL.  Hopefully Little Man has been behaving himself and it won't be so bad.  A girl can dream can't she?!  And grocery shopping.  Ugh.  Of course I can't forget to go buy a few Mega Million lottery tickets.  That sucker is up to 540 million...dollars!!!  Woohooooo!!!  Hey, I could be that 1 out of 175 million that wins.  ;)

Any exciting plans for this weekend?  We have work to do around the house.  I need to get my cowboy to use the rototiller in the front flower beds so it'll be easier for me to pull up the weeds.  I'd like to get flowers planted this weekend so I can concentrate on preparing the garden.  We also bought six baby chicks last night so we'll need to set up their pen to keep predators out.  Our current foster girl has the kennel cough so I need to baby her a bit.  We're supposed to get her to the shelter this weekend to have her spade.  I'll have to see if they'll do the surgery with her being sick.  On Saturday we usually try to get together with friends to cook-out and play dominos.  Sunday...hopefully we can have everything done so we can rest before the chaos begins again on Monday.

Writing-wise?  I'm almost finished revising my chapter.  I need to pull up the editors comments from my final in the FAB contest so I can make sure I have the best chance possible before I sub it.  Hopefully I can squeeze in writing time today and a few crits while I'm at it.

Enjoy your Friday and have a great weekend!!

Holy moly, Maynard!!

Coffee anyone?  Good Monday morning!  Has it really been since October that I blogged?!  Hopefully it's time to remedy that.  It'll be almost impossible to fill everyone in on the changes that have happened in my life.  The most important to me at the moment that has instigated my return to the world of blogging...?  Two of my wonderfully talented critique partners have been published by our dream publishing house. 

Not only have they helped me tremendously in my writing, but they've become dear friends along the way. I met the two lovely ladies way back in the day when I first began searching out the way to begin my writing journey.  I met several of my current crit partners at the eHarlequin forum where authors and readers mingle.

Coming soon I'll have them both for a visit to share their call story with us.  Maybe even a tip or two for those of us still struggling.  For now?  I've got to get my big ol' booty in forward motion.  I'm going to fill up my trusty coffee mug and open my current WIP.  But first I wanted to wish you all a productive Monday morning and welcome myself back to the blogging world.
