This weekend Flyboy, some friends and family and I will be walking for our niece, here in Charleston. As you may remember we have walked for her the passed couple of years in LA and Hawaii. This is the first year here at home. Please send good thought that we have warm sunny weather Sunday during the walk.

Today like yesterday is gorgeous. The only problem the back of my head hurts. I think it might be my sinuses, I say this because Flyboy has had me take over the counter migraine and sinus meds and the headache goes away with both. Then I start sneezing and get a running nose. Whatever is going on its driving me nuts. I’m trying to work but can’t concentrate on what I need to do.I’ve looked at one sentence five times and I know it needs work but the changes aren’t flowing like they normally do. It’s not writers block I’ve changed a few things surrounding the sentence I’m working with I just can fix this one. The harder I think about it the more the back on my head hurts and then I don’t want to work at all, it really sucks.
On another note Flyboy is out visiting our family on the West Coast, and I keep getting pictures of the nieces and nephew that are out there. I really miss them. Flyboy’s brother is getting married to a wickedly awesome chick. I say this because she treats our nephew, her soon to be step-son, as her own. Having come from a broken home, and getting two step-parents in the process, I know how lucky my nephew is to have a step-parent that loves them and treats them as their own. I was luck both of my step-parents treated me as their children too. Many kids don’t get that. So I want to say to my new outlaw, (that’s what those of us who have married into Flyboy’s family call ourselves) welcome to the club/family.
As for the rest of you, I hope you have a wonderful day, and get to spend it with those you love.

Sorry its been a few weeks since my last post. Its been nuts around here. Flyboy came home the first weekend in Nov from his four month deployment. A week after Flyboy’s arrival we headed up to Gatlinburg for a relaxing long weekend. I’ll post so picks this week.
As for my writing I had to work on 50 pages for the editor I’m working with and the night before Flyboy arrived I finished those pages. I started working on the next chapter on the drive up and back. I just finished those last night so I now have to type them in. I’m not liking all the trees I’m killing but I am finding where changes need to be made for the new POV change.
I hope you guys have been having great weekends.
Hey guys I’m sorry I haven’t posted since Aug 11, I’m slacking I know and I’m sorry about that. I haven’t just been sitting on my @ss though I’ve been writing, will editing. I don’t know how published authors do it day in and out and get so much done. With Flyboy gone I feel like I have a mound of things to do. I’m trying to keep up with all of it while writing but another hand would be great. No such luck though not until Oct and Nov. Even with all the “normal” stuff I the pups keep wanting more attention like now Holly is barking at me to play, can you imagine what this 25lb 2 1/2 year pup does when I’m writing and it’s not just her the other two crave attention along with the cat. So I’ve been ignoring them and editing. I think I’ve cleaned up many issues, hopefully I haven’t created more, and added more feeling to Alexis so she’s likeable.
I’m glad my muse kicked in, and I can’t wait to see where she takes me.
For all those you started back to school, I hope you’re having some great days. School just started back today here.
So yesterday I had surgery and had to spend the night in the hospital. Everything went well and I was released earlier today. While there I was able to work on my review of Shadow of Night the next installment in Deborah Harkness All Souls Trilogy. Tonight I finished my review, I just need to type it up. So be on the look out.
Tomorrow check out Paperback Dolls for my latest article, I’ll also post it as well. I’m hoping Flyboy will take me to see Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter so that I can write a review of the movie to go with the book review. Plus the Dolls are up for putting both reviews together, so cross your fingers that I’m feeling up for it.
Not much else going on, but I’ll keep you posted.
With Flyboy & my anniversary tomorrow, I decided to get creative & crafty today. This was a lot of fun and I did switch things up a few times. By the end I used all the letters with Flyboy’s help. Now that we are back from our Texas trip, I’ll start writing on the blogs, book reviews, article and edits. I had thought I’d get work done while we were home but that didn’t happen. We got home late Thursday early Friday. Friday was filled with military things and whatnot. Today was our breather from a cram packed week.
