Sunday Report Card
Sunday, June 13th, 2010

Psst! I’ll announce yesterday’s winner tomorrow, so you still have time to enter! If you post a comment to this blog entry, you have a second chance to win!

I’m baaaaack! I’m tired, have a headache, and am late starting my day! Yesterday’s mad dash to Dallas and back was a lot more fun than it should have been.

Daughter and the little one came by at noon yesterday, and since we had an hour to kill, we decided to do some shopping. I have a favorite shop, Maurice’s, that always has clothes I like and that fit. I led the shopping spree. I have new tops and a pair of capri pants, and a pretty yellow, cheap vinyl purse. Daughter has outfits and the little one has cheap, blingy jewelry. I didn’t try on anything, which guaranteed I’d have a better time. There’s something about those closed, airless, poorly lighted dressing rooms that always annoys me. I have the receipt. I figure if I try something on later and hate it, I’ll just take it back.

Anyway, we headed to Dallas with the little one asking that genetically guaranteed question, “Are we almost there?”, every half hour. We didn’t turn on the radio even once because we talked and laughed the whole way.

Little girl saw one of those semi-trucks loaded with vehicles destined for a dealership parking lot and said, “Look, Nina, their parking lot moves!”

Daughter and I decided that we’d rather lose a pinky finger than eat of bowl of scorpions. I’d rather eat a roach than a scorpion—yeah, we ask really important questions like that for fun. Funny, I’d rather eat a scorpion than one of those six-inch long monster centipedes. They’re hairy. At which point, the red-headed hellion laughed. “But you’ll eat menudo? Tripe feels hairy, mom!”

Anyway, the little one is gone for the summer. We’re sad, but she is going to enjoy spending time with daddy. I always look for silver linings.

This past week I didn’t write a single word. End of report. The family reunion didn’t wrap up until Wednesday, and then I needed to recuperate from too many people. This week, I have big, hairy plans with dozens of little legs. But first, I need to hit the pool to clear my head.

P.S. I pulled the cover because it’s not quite finalized. My bad!

    I’m glad you’re back and had a decent trip. I’m thinking I’d be hard pressed to eat any of those things. Now daughter would if her Dad challenged her to it. She’s already eaten a fried worm with a dash of mustard that they caught while camping.

    The cover looks really good.

    Take care!

    I like the cover. Very eye catching. I too like Maurices and refuse to try on clothes in public. The mirrors and lighting make you feel even worse and yes, taking things back is much less stressful.

    Lovely cover, I especially like the light touch of colour in the title. It makes the title stand out, and with the naked back on show, it makes me think it will attract a lot of attention on Amazon when you get it to Kindle :D

    Nice cover. Is this the one for kindle. Can’t wait I have one of those. I think you’re right she does look like Marilyn.

    That’s a beautiful cover, Delilah–S’s got a great eye! And sounds like your trip went pretty wonderfully, all things considered ;) It’s great you got to chat about some fun/creative topics while you drove!

    There’s no way I could eat any of those things if I knew what they were. I hate trying on clothes it always puts me in a bad mood maybe it’s because I wear plus size and you can’t find a lot around here. Love the cover.

    I was thinking that she looked like Marilyn Monroe before I read the end of your sentence. Good luck with that project.

    :smile: Road trips are always the best when you’re having a great time. As for eating any of those nasties, no thanks. :smile:
    I totally agree about the dressing rooms. I swear they are set up to torment women. Glad your home safe .
