Weekend Update & Editor News!!

Whew, it's been a crazy-busy weekend, but fun! Daughter's cheer squad won 1st in their category, then we had fun at Frontier City, riding rides and eating waaaay too many forbidden foods!! I screamed so hard on the Wildcat rollercoaster that my chest and throat hurt!!!

Hubby jetted off for a sales thing in Ohio this morning. As usual, I'm not sure what he's doing, but he seemed excited as he wouldn't have his usual workload at night in the hotel. I hope he has fun!

Meanwhile, I've got plenty to keep me busy. I got edits on my anthology, and whew--they're nice and light!!! Drum roll, please . . . I also have an official new editor, Ms. Johanna Raisanen. I've not yet had the pleasure of meeting her, but have heard she's VERY sharp! According to Kathleen, she's been with Super for the past four years. I love reading Supers, so hopefully I'll also love working with a Super editor!!

Kathleen put me in the hot seat, requesting anthology titles ASAP. Usually, titles are fairly easy for me, but this one just isn't coming. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know!! Seriously!! LOL!! The story is set at a class reunion being held on 4th of July. Overall themes center around fresh starts. My fave so far is Sparklers and Smooches!!

In other news . . . Granny Sylv has lost her glasses again. I've searched EVERYWHERE!!!! They're seriously gone. Maybe she flushed them?? Considering the fact that she doesn't go that many places, I can't imagine where they've gone. She didn't have them when we dropped her off at the rest home, so I know they're not there. She usually doesn't wear them anyway, it just bugs me to not know where they are!!

Did you find Granny Sylv's glasses yet?
A title like Sparkle and Smooches will have me intriqued.
I guess you could say I've had a crazy week. Friends of mine that are long distance truck drivers don't have a permanent address because they only have one or two days off in a row(this time it was longer because they were supposed to get paid Wed morning and then they could go to work Wed night, but they didn't get their paychecks until late afternoon) After they got their paychecks they did some grocery shopping for me. I am in ice cream bar heaven. They found a box that has 30 bars in it and 3 flavours, mocha, chocolate and double Vanilla. I think they got that when they were at Costco. They also got me an early Christmas present. A computer chair. So much more comfortable than my kitchen chair. Now I just have to figure out how to stop it from rolling. It's kinda hard to type when you sit down and the chair rolls two ft. away from the computer.

Christa, sweetie, I'm soooo jealous of all of your ice cream bars!!! Lucky girl!!

No, we still haven't found Granny Sylv's glasses. She doesn't seem to mind not having them, so I've stopped worrying about it!!

It's great that you got a real desk chair! The right chair makes a huge difference in how you feel!! I got a new one in August when my old one had metal poking through the duct tape!! LOL!!
