Week 46

Friday, November 12, 2010
A final book critique—what a journey it’s been.

Saturday, November 13, 2010
The day was to be filled with nothing, 
but for some reason, 
I am running from one event to the other.

Sunday, November 14, 2010
A morning of music.

Monday, November 15, 2010

Reality. Kids to school, bill paying, house cleaning. 
Oh, yeah, and work.

Tuesday, November 16, 2010
Five queries out the door. Yikes.

Wednesday, November 17, 2010
What the heck? I just won “The Book Doctors” 
(Arielle Eckstut and David Henery Sterry’s) Pitchapalooza. 
Who knew I could pitch my book in a minute. 

Thursday, November 18, 2010
On the cusp of my Pitchapalooza high, 
came the low of my first book agent rejection.

Week 45

Friday, November 5, 2010
Ahhh . . . my sister has arrived!

Saturday, November 6, 2010
I’m bravely waiting for 11 children under the age of 6. 
Let “Jedi Training Camp” begin!

Sunday, November 7, 2010
Two guys. Two birthdays. One big. One small. 
Both mine to love more each day. 
Happy 5th Birthday Rylan and Happy Birthday, Patrick!

Monday, November 8, 2010
Turning five was too much for the Ry-man. 
Now he’s home with a stomachache and fever.

Tuesday, November 9, 2010
Day five of up-ended routines 
is starting to take a toll on my sanity.

Wednesday, November 10, 2010
Time is slipping by faster then I can cram things in.

Thursday, November 11, 2010 
Sleeping in my own bed tonight. 
Words cannot express.

Week 44

Friday, October 29, 2010
Excitement is brewing in me and
I’m itching to pull the trigger.
Patience. Patience.

Saturday, October 30, 2010
A date. A date. An actual date without kids.

Sunday, October 31, 2010
They’re ying and yang, good vs. evil,
two sides of the same coin.
Anakin Skywalker and Darth Vader.

Monday, November 1, 2010
How is it November?

Tuesday, November 2, 2010
I opened my office door to the sound of Christmas
music drifting down the stairs . . . um, Marilyn?

Wednesday, November 3, 2010
And so it begins. I “help” build the Lego creation
according to the instructions.
Two hours later it is three different spaceships.

Thursday, November 4, 2010
Mmmm. Peppermint tea.
Reminds me of living in Switzerland.
