happy Sunday

Happy, Sunday, everyone!  We have a lot to be grateful for this week, I hope.

First, Madame Mommy Dearest has taken off for her very first Caribbean cruise.  Okay, rephrase:  It’s her first cruise ever, which just happens to be going to the Caribbean.  Down to the Cayman Islands, to be specific.  Yes, it’s true—I haz a jealous. :sadheart    But not only was I not invited, I’m on deadline, so I couldn’t have gone even if I had been.  In that case, I haz a mad. :devil

The good news, though, is that so far, she’s doing fine. Her biggest worry was dealing with flights & making her way through the airport all on her own, & she ended up having zero trouble. Now let’s hope she doesn’t get a sunburn or fall overboard. LOL

Second, it’s official—all of my Christmas cards & gifts are wrapped, tagged, & in the mail.  There were a few stragglers, but everything is crossed off my list now, & I can breathe a sigh of holiday relief.

Third, I got the sweetest holiday card from Agent Extraordinaire.  He always says the nicest things, & now even I’m excited to see what 2011 has in store for us!  (I seriously haven’t given the New Year a single thought yet—with the exception of realizing quite recently that I will soon have to write 2011 on my checks…& wondering how many times I’ll screw up & write 2010 before finally getting with the program. :smash )

Fourth, there is apparently a shortage on the only frozen raw food my cats will eat, which has had me in a bit of a tizzy.  I’m okay for right this very minute, but that window is growing smaller & smaller.  (Cats eat every day, y’know.  Sometimes more than once! :kitty )  But I think I have found a second store that can order it for me.  And they have, so now it’s fingers, toes, & whiskers crossed that the order actually comes in!

Fifth, the line edits for HER LITTLE SECRET, HIS HIDDEN HEIR arrived this week. I have to admit, I’m not terribly excited about getting them because I am rarely excited about adding more work to the pile.  However…that being said, my editor was extremely complimentary about the story & the edits are fairly light.  He also gave me until after Christmas to deal with them, which deserves a huge hurrah! :notworthy

So that’s five awesome things right off the top of my head…how about you guys?  Can any of you make your lists a cool half dozen? :gotcha


And now to announce our Free Book Friday winner:

    Contests Alex!

    Well it’s been a pretty good week. I started knitting (again) and so far so good. My first scarf is almost done. Started a second project of a baby blanket for a friend who just found out she was pregnant after having a difficult time getting pregnant. I can still only do one type of stitch but thanks to Hollie, who patiently instructed me via fb, I can now use circular needles too. I want to learn to purl and lace stitch (I think that was what it was called).

    Oldest son was named Aim High Attitude Award recipient at his Civil Air Patrol dinner last night. he looked so nice in his dress blues.

    We are getting ready to head out in a little while to go to a family dinner although we kind of expect a phone call from my hubby’s uncle to cancel due to snow even though it’s really not that bad. Yet. Still too much snow for my liking though.

    I hope your mom has fun! I would love to go on a cruise but dear old hubby is a chicken. And with you getting edits that just means it’s that much closer that we get to read the book!

      :thumbsup on getting back to knitting! You’ll do super, I’m sure.

      And if hubby won’t go on a cruise, why don’t you do it with a group of girlfriends. Might even be more fun that way. :socool

    6 things I am grateful for are…

    1. continued health of family/friends
    2. no snow storms yet
    3. my Roma boys won today and even though my favorite did not play today due to disciplinary issues he was shown on camera looking like my own personal WHIF.
    4. had a great time yesterday with my friend Joy at the book fair/signing of Eloisa James which ironically enough benefitted the library I went to as a little girl
    5. not only am I getting a Roma De Rossi jersey from Mom and Dad – but my friend Joy got me the Italy jersey of his FROM ROME! [It was bought in August when a friend of hers went on vacay].
    6. I have plenty of books in my TBR pile to keep me entertained.
