The News

Yep, I have big news. Drum roll …. we bought a house! More like a project. We closed on the house mid-May, and then proceeded to rip out sheet rock, floors, insulation, carpet, trim, the kitchen, and the laundry room. Minor stuff, really.

So, now you know what I’ve been doing. The project, moving, cleaning the rental, and attempting to settle in. So far, it’s been really fun. I’ve learned so much about house renovation, and I haven’t stepped on a nail yet. Although, I did take a nice hammer hit to the knee. But, I digress..

I have a nice two week window to focus on writing projects. These include edits to After We Met, finishing book three, and revising an entry to a writing contest. Piece of cake. But first, let meĀ eat a bowl of popcorn, chase the cat around the house, drink hot tea, and watch an episode of Gilmore Girls. Then, I’ll actually plug in the laptop and open Microsoft Word. I also have to go through my “I hate After We Met, and I can’t believe I wrote this crap” rant. This usually takes me about an hour as I read out loud and edit. Then, I finally calm down, grab another mug of tea, and look at recipes on-line to take my mind off it.

Wish me luck. I read two chapters out loud, told the cat I should give up, and now I’m reading Dilbert cartoons.
