Three Anouncements…and a Question!
Thursday, March 29th, 2012

After five days camped out with my daughter, I’m finally back home. Yay!—although I do feel horribly guilty over leaving her today of all days. We’ve been finishing up renovating/painting/cleaning the “new” old house this week in preparation for today. My duties were mostly babysitting kids and animals while she and hubby worked at the house. I pitched in yesterday to help with the final cleanup. I had laid on movers, but the numskulls told me at the last minute that while they moved things, they didn’t actually pack anything, so they were fired and we had to recruit family members to help with the actual pack and move today. To top off everything else, it looks like the pregnant dog I was watching is about to give birth. So daughter has her hands full.

However, I have a conference to head to tomorrow and while I decided to forego getting my hair done, I still have packing, nails, car cleanup, and email catchup to do today. She’s on her own. I hope she survives. I hope her marriage survives her nerves. :)

One little note. Okay, three really. My m/f, f/f short story, Marmalade, was accepted by Mischief (a HarperCollins publishing arm); another short story, Soldier Girls, was accepted for a lesbian collection with Cleis; and I have it on good authority that there is a contract in the works with Montlake  for a longer book I have partially written. Some of my beta readers out there might remember my strange little dark paranormal/police drama with witches and wraiths… It’s finally going to be published! Woot!

So, while I’m doing my last minute scramble to get out the door to Dallas, I’ll leave you with a question. I always love to see the answers!

If you could have been there to witness any specific moment in history,
what moment would you choose?

    I would have loved to be at Woodstock for the concert! I missed it because I just gave birth to my daughter.

    Probably when the 19th amendment passed.

    on one note I would have to agree with ILY because where would we women be today if not for that…but on a different note how about when our troops came home from vietnam..I would have loved to been able to give them the recognition they desereved then instead of having to wait 40 years…

    Watching the Berlin Wall come down. I would have been the one wielding the sledge hammer.

    I have to agree with mixe about Soldier Girls…I will have to read that one because I was a soldier girl from 1980 to 1990. But as for the question about being there at a time in history. To me I think I rather be there in the future when GLBT are treated as equals in this world.

    Let’s see. I was in Germany when the wall fell. Not Berlin, but still enjoyed the celebrations they had all over the country. I think I’m with Laura. I’d want to be along for that moon mission. Just watching those first steps on TV gave me goose bumps.
