Do you ever have SO much to do that you sit down and do nothing. I just parked Sara in front of Curious George (a PBS show I HATE) just so I could NOT start the dishes, deliver my daughters lunch and backpack to her at school (guess what daddy forgot…), go to the gym, to work, to the bank, to the grocery store, finish the quilt for the fall festival, make spats and a raygun holster or work on my second novel.
But, I missed you. I’ve been cheating on my blog with my other blog. But I want to bring you flowers, and whisper sweet nothings. I want to catch up.
About Chenda – The book is in the hands of a capable and wonderful technical editor – and I hope to have it on Amazon and Kindle by October 20th. I’ve tweaked it for the last time. It’s a wonderful and strange feeling. I’m gonna see my book in ACTUAL print – very soon. I am excited. I know I wrote it an all, but its a really good story. Fun. Funny. I am pleased.
Eleanor is going to school like a trooper 5 days a week now. YEA! She is getting much better at writing her name. She starts with a small uppercase E and then the letters get bigger through the A and then get smaller again. Her name is a mountain. Not bad for a just turned 4-year old. This week’s theme at school was the letter C – she went to school as a cowgirl this week and loved it.
Saralyn is the cuddliest baby ever. I love this girl. Sweet, but messy. Demanding of food CONSTANTLY. Loves Beauty and the Beast, Elmo, and her baby doll. Favorite Food: Strawberries. Favorite Song: Abney Park’s “Airship Pirates”. Favorite Parent Manipulation: velociraptor screech.
Our housing situation: Man Alive – we’re still living HERE! To make a very long story short – we lost another one. We are officially back at square one. Which is fine I guess. The good Lord has put us right where we are supposed to be. I keep telling Him that if He wants our efforts to move to fail, then make them fail. When we find the right move, He will make it happen. But… What to do? Get the stuff out of storage? Find a new realtor? Give up till January? It’s hard to say…
Well – the day wears on and I have a LONG list of stuff to do and a big weekend ahead. Catch you later.
