Happy Sunday

Happy Sunday!

And happy day after St. Patrick’s Day!  Are you all awake?  Hung over? Feeling a little…green? :drinkup

Sorry, I couldn’t resist. :rolf   But even if you are a little green around the gills :muahaha   I hope you still have plenty to be thankful for this week.

This week, I think the thing I AM HAPPY about most would be finishing the rough draft of my latest Harlequin Desire.  There were some rough moments, especially in the beginning surrounding my surgery…& then trying to wade through a drug-induced fog to get back into the story :sick …but I absolutely fell in love with Alex & Jessica, & love how it all turned out. :jumping

I AM HAPPY, too, that all I have to do now is go back through the entire thing to proof, polish, & maybe do a bit of revision before I can turn it in to Editor C.  Whoo-hoo! :twirl    Of course, I say “all I have to do” as though it’s no big thing, when that part of the process is actually one of the biggest things.  But fingers crossed it will go smoothly & easily, & by this time next week I’ll be patting myself on the back for my brilliance.

And I AM HAPPY that I actually enjoyed the first episode of ABC’s new drama Missing this week.  I wasn’t sure I would; it didn’t look that great from the previews & I even saw some negative feedback about it on Twitter, but I really like Ashley Judd, so I thought I’d give it a shot.  So glad I did!  It’s like the movie Taken—which you all know I love—but with a female protagonist.  And it definitely kept my interest while I was on the Torture Cycle (which isn’t easy to do :runrun ).  I’m already looking forward to the next episode & have some early predictions about where things are going with the storyline, especially concerning…  Well, no; can’t tell you that or I might ruin it. :winkwink

How about you—what great stuff has been happening in your lives this week?  Or maybe you’re looking forward to something that’s coming up soon.  Whatever it is, we want you to share!  :peekaboo

PhotobucketNow to announce the winner of our latest Free Book Friday giveaway—an early autographed copy of my April Harlequin Desire, ON THE VERGE OF I DO, & a beautiful reversible shamrock pendant—glitter green on one side, silver with “Kiss Me” stamped on the other.  (Much prettier than this picture portrays, actually. :winkwink )

    Happy Day after!!
    Congrats on finishing the book!! I can’t wait to read it!! :twirl

    I am happy today because I was lucky enough to get not 1 but 2 out of print Heidi books!! My friend gave me one that she had and the other one I got at a Friends of the Library Sale! WoooHooo for me!!

    • Heidi says:

      Cool beans, Hollie. Some of those OOP ones really are tough to find. And I’m seething because I lent a couple of my last original copies to a neighbor who turned into a total d*ck & never returned them. I wanna hunt them down & TAKE MY BOOKS BACK. :curses

    Congrats Donna!!!

    I’m happy that there will be another Heidi book to look forward too!!! (Did you decide on a baby name?)

    I’m happy to say that B’girl had her final Level 5 gym meet yesterday and did very well. I think though, she was more excited that it was her last one, which means no more of the same floor music for 4 hours. She told me afterwards that she can’t wait until next year and she thinks she’s going to do really well. I’m so glad her excitement is back (she struggled a little last time this year with fear issues).

    I’m happy that I get to pull out the shorts!!! I’ve been wearing flip flops for awhile, but they are so much better when they are paired up with shorts!!!

    Oh and we got a new baby this week! We welcomed Fionna (aka Little Bit) into the family. She is a talker and loves to play with our other ratties tails. They are very good to her and have even let her push them out of “their” bed.

    • Heidi says:

      Yay for B-Girl! :thumbsup And a new rat baby—awwwww! :kitty

      I’m with you on loving the nice weather. Can’t believe how warm it got so quickly. (And am wondering if it will last. :Huh ) But I’m sort of working under Hot Flash Protocol: 3 sets of clothes to be rotated as weather dictates. Chilly in the morning, hot during the day, middling in the evening, so I need three different types of pjs to change into. :muahaha

    I didn’t bother to watch Missing. They gave it so little promotion that you know they’re going to let it die.

    • Heidi says:

      Oh, it was so good, tho. I’m really hoping Ashley Judd can carry it & that word gets out how good it is. Folks who like Burn Notice & Covert Affairs, etc. should really jump on board!
