Sunday + a day Report Card
Monday, April 13th, 2009

I’m trying to catch up again. Just when I think I’m there, real life kicks me in the ass again. This time, Dad’s back in the hospital. Kidney failure. We’re hoping for the best. That it’s just a temporary glitch in his recovery from triple bypass surgery.

So, let’s see where I am today.

I mentioned a couple of days ago that I finished Stone’s Embrace and shipped it to my editor (have you seen the cover?). I’m crossing my fingers that she doesn’t throw up all over my very strange little tale. If she does, I hope to be in a better place mentally to deal with it.

I’m still revising the last Dark Realm book. It’s due Wednesday, so that’s my major push for the next few days. I reach a point after I’ve written a story that I want to scream if I have to look at it one more time—and I’m there. My editor loved what she’s seen so far, but wants some tweaks. But I read through it and wonder what the hell was I thinking?

All this week I’m trying to make lists getting ready for the Romantic Times convention. I leave next Tuesday, but still have to box stuff up. I don’t know what the heck I’m going to wear, and unless I can talk Daughter into going shopping with me, I may be in blue jeans because I am sooooo not a clothes horse and would just as soon be comfy.

But I did get a hair cut. The long locks are gone. The hairdresser talked me into throwing away the straightner and letting my curls go. Ack. I don’t know me when I look in the mirror. If you wonder how I’m coping, check out the pic I took of myself: New Do

I know, I look kinda intense. :wink:

    You go see Nick for your hair? Looks cute. Can’t help with RT clothes. Getting dressed for me=putting on bra!

    Keeping you dad in my prayers.

    Cyndi! Yup, I loved Nick. He was every bit as naughty as you said he’d be. Thanks for the prayers.

    I like the new do. I need to get to a hairdresser and let them go to town I think. Need to find one first I guess.

    Brandy! Find someone whose hair you admire. I liked Cyndi’s and asked for her stylist’s number. :smile:

    Hi Delilah, hoping for the best for your dad. And I like your new style -not too instense but just spirited enough! It is funny though how a hair cut makes one “unrecogizeable” for the first while…

    Stress, Stress & more Stress. Sounds like you a feeling it – just like my spouse. I tell him – 2 hands & 1 items at a time. It’s difficult to concentrate on any thing when you are worried about a parent. I know you can take a deep breathe and chip away at your lists…if you don’t leave until next Tues., there is time to let your fingers do the shopping – online that is.

    Also, I love your hair. It looks so full & healthy. Oh! What I would give to have that.

    Sonya!
    I know, one thing at a time. And I won’t let myself start on a new story until after I get back home.

    MJ!
    Glad you like the hair. And thanks for the good wishes for my dad.

    Fedora!
    Thanks! And prayers are very welcome!
