After finally getting out of the Military apartment Flyboy and I are in our new place. That’s not to say we have all of our belongings because we don’t. So settling in is taking longer than I’d like. However, I’m still able to work so that’s a plus. Once we have the apartment set up I’ll have an awesome office (granted I need a desk first). While Papa is not Paris I can still see why so many authors loved living abroad to write. Even with the snow and rain I’m loving living here. I feel like I’m in my element. If Flyboy would be up to it I’d love to have a house somewhere in Europe that we could live in half of the year, since we’ll retire to Austin (TX) when its time for him to retire. Yeah I know that sounds bad that I’m saying when he decides but let face it I can work just about anywhere as both a writer and paralegal.
Any how, since we have “settled in” we are taking our first trip this weekend. It’s not a big trip but we do get to see family and after two and a half years I can’t wait. We’re gong to see NPM and while visiting we’re also going to a USO tour. Flyboy & NPM’s cousin is part of a USO comedy tour, Four Day Weekend, so we’re all going to go see a show.
On a different note, as you guys know I’ve been a part of PBD (paperback dolls) for a few years now and if you’ve been over to the site in the past few months you may have notices that we haven’t been doing much. The dolls have all been extremely busy and like me they haven’t had the opportunity to write reviews as we once did. With that said be on the look out as we start to revamp & relaunch the PDB. I’m not going to spill the beans on what we are doing but I do want you to be aware the Dolls will be returning.

The countdown has begun…
Sorry I didn’t post yesterday, this weekend I’ve been sick. I’m not going to get into the details but even though I’ve been under the weather I have been able to get a little work done. I’m in chapter 5 for edits on Legacy. I had to got back into chapter 4 like I said and change some things. I think I have the layout of the house pretty much covered. I wish I had a model of it or a good sketch (my sucks) but I’m a writer not an artist. Besides Legacy I was working on reviews for PBD and interview questions. So since Friday I’ve been fairly busy, and I know I need to put up the recipes, with getting sick that was the last thing I thought about, so I’ll get out a note book and write them down so I’ll remember to put them up this week. I’m not just doing this for you guys I think I’ll want it for One of the Boy’s or Calla’s Kitchen, whichever I decide to call it, so I can add recipes Calla tries out. The ones that aren’t so good and the ones that are will be in the book, so you guys can see her passions.
You’ll find that I’ve been adding more things to the blog/website under Fiction I added a few more pages, this way all of my styles are labeled and I can have a page dedicated to the work. Shortly I’ll move all the information about Legacy over to the novel page, and so on. I’ll try and work on synopsis for everything else over the next few weeks.
For now my little sick butt is leaving you so I can eat and maybe write, otherwise I’m going back to bed. See you tomorrow.
