Happy Sunday! How are you doing this week? With luck, that sleepy puppy to the left will be me this week…but with fewer wrinkles, I hope. :cat
Which of course means I AM HAPPY we got an extra hour to sleep in today. Yay!
I AM HAPPY that I got the line edits on PROJECT: RUNAWAY HEIRESS finished on time. Not to mention how easy they were to deal with once I got the hang of the new system Harlequin is using, as well as how track changes & such function in Word for Mac. (Another new system I’m just learning.)
I AM HAPPY, too, with how some of the new changes I was asked to implement into the story turned out. I have to admit, I balked at first. I was so enamored of how some of the scenes played out, I was reluctant to screw them up. But after a bit of work & some ingenious finessing, if I do say so myself :elvis, I think I actually like them better now than before. Gosh, Editor C might have been right. Who’da thunk it? :Jack
I AM HAPPY that I was successfully able to hide from trick-or-treaters last week. I swear I’m not a Halloween Scrooge, but it’s always so darn cold out; the cats freak if even one person comes to the door, let alone a constant stream of kids in groups (& scary costumes!); & I don’t know any of the kids anymore. These days, they come by the carloads from surrounding communities just for free candy, & it’s really only fun if you can guess who they are, then know them when they remove their masks. So I do the hermit thing & burrow in with all the lights off.
And I AM HAPPY that being a curmudgeon gave me a chance to watch Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. I recorded it when I got a free Pay-Per-View certificate from DishNetwork, then belatedly realized that it had a November 11th expiration date & would also delete from the DVR 24-hours after playback was started. Which kind of screwed up my plans to watch it on the Torture Cycle over a two- or three-day period. :ohcrap But being forced to sit in the dark for a few hours finally gave me just the excuse I needed to watch it. I loved it, too. Not so happy with the death of one character in the very beginning, but I thought it was at least as good as the first film. If I get the chance, I may even watch it again. :howyoudoin
Last but not least, I AM HAPPY that November is my birthday month. Yes, it means I’ll be turning one year older, but since that still only brings me to the 29-year mark (SHUT UP!!! IT DOES SO!!! :scaredya ), having a birthday makes the whole month feel just a little bit more special. Especially when I’ve also got a new book out, & there are a few other exciting things taking place in the background. :showgirl
