This Brief Blog bares basic stuff on.... okay, I'm at a loss for B words. My daughter is going on a road trip today... Said daughter turns 15 this month and I am driving to Chicago and back as part of this venture (leaving her with a group of teens she attends summer camp with--nice kids, but still...). Yes, I get to have coffee with my exquisite friend Colette, as part of the deal, but it is 9 hours in the car, probably 3 of which will be at the hands of the young DRIVER'S PERMIT THANG... so the blog is less organized than normal... There you have it.
Speaking of Miss THANG, Thing I had her first water polo game last night. It was only a scrimmage with another high school in town, but as it was her first... Water Polo is FUN, and my Miss THANG made the first point of the game, even though it was her FIRST EVER game. This is Junior Varsity, but I figure, HEY, everybody OUT THERE is junior varsity and MY junior varsity player is only a freshman. She also had several steals. She was RIGHT. The Synchronized Swimming 'tread water technique' gives her an advantage over other new players. She has also done both competitive swimming AND team sports, including softball (for that good arm) and basketball (for the one on one guarding and stealing). That, and being relatively long-armed, all make this a sport that she may be ideally suited for. It seems to be her favorite so far.
This will be the second year the easter bunny doesn't make it to our house. It's sad, but I warned them: when you stop believing, he will stop coming. My son is now 11... so sad. I miss it when we were visited by a large rodent in the middle of the night who just HID CHOCOLATE. Oh well. It's probably better this way.
I got an email from MY AGENT yesterday, and she said the edited chapters were fantastic and sent them off to the editor... hopefully soon to be dubbed MY EDITOR!
Badly Behavior Bedmates
Sometimes Husbands need spankings. It's too bad when it happens, it is when they are least in the mood for them. [/TMI]
Yes, I'm aware that means Big a lot. *cough*
I just wanted to say WELCOME AND THANKS. Every time I participate in one of these Blogosphere things, I end up with new followers... BEING a new follower... the network grows. And you know what? It is SO WORTH IT. You people are a FABULOUS lot, and between the connections that have already helped me, and the projects in the works (see book tours in a few posts... I have three planned this month—visiting authors for book releases) this sure seems like a wonderful way to help each other out so BIG A LOT to all of you! (err... I mean THANKS!)
And because several requested it...
And FINALLY... becaue I know it's what you really want...
Yeah, okay fine. Just sit there and drool. I am.
