On the road again…
Thursday, September 18th, 2008

If you were making a list of the five things (not people) that make you happiest in your life, what five things would you write down?

Well, I’m officially on my drive today. It’s about 11 hours from Central Arkansas to Kentucky. Don’t ask me why I didn’t fly, because I’m not sure. I think that when I had the time to arrange it I was just coming off a couple of trips and didn’t want to see the inside of another airport. Ah well, I do need time to contemplate stories.

I’ll have company for the trip. A reader on the conference prep loop was looking for a ride, so I offered. Now if she talks my ear off I’m not going to be happy, but she seemed very nice over the emails. I sure hope she knows my Scion doesn’t have a trunk.

Be sure to answer the question above to be entered in the contest!

    1. That I live close enough to a beautiful park to walk there everyday
    2. my lap top and ebook reader
    3. my TIVO- hate commercials
    4. time to read everyday
    5. I love to eat but hate to cook, so having a dh in an Italian chef phase makes me sooo happy

    Y’all have some great lists!!

    1) A heater for the pool. I’m already gasping when I get into the water.
    2) A secretary/assistant to keep me organized, because I just can’t manage to keep focused with all the clutter I collect while I write (who has time to pay bills when a hero’s whispering naughty things in your ear?!)
    3) More hours in the day.
    4) An unlimited promo budget and time to spend it!
    5) A younger/thinner body so that I can have the stamina to get everything done I need to in the day.

    P.S. I arrived here safely in West Virginia–yeah I know, I thought I was heading to Kentucky until Cindy, my new friend and companion for the trip. mentioned that we were actually going to WV. Remember what I said about needing an assistant?!

    5. Spending more time with my friends who I only get to see once a year.
