Editing

I was trying to remove the links I have here since they no longer apply. But I can't figure out how to do it. Oh Well, I will have to post a lot more so they will disappear into the nether land.
Speaking of the nether land that would be a cool place to set a story. I will have to think on that.
I really do need to do more with my blog. I've been doing my facebook which I really like and myspace which is cool. So many places to go and write. I should just be writing my story. I decided to take a break over the holidays and resume it on 1/1 or 1/2 depends on whether Ray is working or not.
Ray is on vacation this past week and the coming week. Its been nice having him home. There is so much we have to do yet though. I told Ray that tomorrow we will finish the downstairs bathroom. We have family coming on the 28th and I want everything to look good. I will just have to bug everyone here to do what they have to do.
I would say that most of my shopping is done. I really can't think of anything else I have to buy. Unless I can figure something out to surprise my hubby with. I can't think of anything that would though. I need to start wrapping the presents, that should be fun.
We are going to have turkey for dinner on Xmas. I guess I will make my usual for Xmas Eve. I think I will do a ham for New Years.
New Years will be quiet as usual. Ray will be working.
I will be working on my book and then on 1/10 I will be going to my writers meeting. We are supposed to have a psychic intuitive that day. I wonder if it is anyone I know. That would be funny. We could do a seance together that would scare the poop out of everyone.
There is so much to do really.
I'm hoping that I can go to the Romantic Times Convention in April. Its in Orlando and it should be a gas. But its also a lot of money. The convention, the hotel and air fare. Probably 1K or more. It's a lot of money. I want to, I am going to the RWA Convention in July in DC that I can drive to or I can take a short flight and maybe Ray can drive down and we can do all the things I've always wanted to but didn't get the chance. It will be great.
We are having a big snow blast here. Snow on Friday and then again on Sunday. I hope there is no more.
One of Ray's aunts passed away and there was a mass for her on Sat. We were going to go but the snow blower decided not to work that well and Ray had a Dr.'s appointment at 11:45 and that was a visit he had to go to. So no service. I think she was at my mother-in-laws, as a matter of fact its her sister that passed. I feel bad. But I know that she is in a way better place. I remember my mother-in-law saying that her sister was not that well. Its a shame.
I put up my Christmas town this year. I opened boxes of houses that I didn't even know I had. It was great. I have a downtown and the village in the living room on a huge board that is a top two card tables, spread out. Then the rest of the village is in the dining room. There is a boat and the seafarers restaurant, an ice skating rink and a couple of more shops. Also in the dining room is Santa's town. The house is decorated. Which really surprises me I didn't think I would get it done. I told Ray that the town is staying up because its to much to put away. That I also need a bigger board so everything fits. I will need to get something new for the town. I bought something new every year whether the town went up or not. So I will be on the hunt for something new. Its good to buy something now because its all half off. Cool Beans. I guess that is to old to use anymore. I don't know what the new word of the day is. So cool bean it is.
I have to get rid of that stuff on this site. I wish I could just delete it, but that would be to easy.
So Monday is finish the bathroom day. Tuesday; Dr. then maybe some shopping and then get my hair cut. Come home. Wednesday is Xmas eve so home and chilling then the big day for the jolly little fat man. It doesn't get any better than this.
That should be enough for now. At least I hope so. I really do want those things gone.
Oh, one other thing I miss my Dad, Mom and sister. I don't think anyone can understand how I feel unless they lost their whole family like I did. I saved that till the last. You never know who may read this and what stupid ideas they may have. I wouldn't be surprised though if someone came up with some bullshit. Not going to worry about it. I don't care.

Tired

I wanted to write something today so here I am. I have to clean up the first three chapters of my book to bring to my meeting next week. See what they all think.
I hope everyone had a great Holiday. Still doing the Turkey? I'm not, the joy of eating out;no leftovers and no cleanup. Had a very nice time.
I will be cooking for Christmas and of course Christmas Eve. I guess we all have to eat. LOL
I'm really excited about my book. Typing till three in the morning though is not the way to do it. I have to go to the office as if I was going to work. Actually I am going to work so I just hide and hopefully no one bothers me.
Really tired.
Going to bed after I feed the cats.

NaNoWriMo and Me

Wow I am really behind in my blogs. shame on me. I am doing NaNoWriMo again this year and I intend to finish it this year. Of course I am already behind but not to bad. I can catch up.
Lets see what is happening; nothing much really. Doing the house. Had the rugs cleaned, bad kitties. I mean that, Bad Kitties. The rug looks great.
So much to do and these HOT FLASHES are killing me. When are they going to go away?
I really don't have much to say tonight. I finished Kenyons new book, it was good I wish it was more. More books I really like True Blood on HBO. I've read a few of the books and I think I like the way the series is going Its not the same as the books, they never are, but like I said its good.

I will try to remember to blog some more. But for now Good Night.

What fun

I've had a bit of fun doing up my page. So many fun things to add. As I was doing this Mulder has been laying on my lap. Ray, my husband, is at his computer with his head phones on to block out the TV. He hates it that it is on and I am not really watching it. I told him many times that it is just background noise. Its from living alone and I did that for a long time.
I hope that now I have this up and running and I actually remember doing this in April I will be on it more.
Writers need to write every day. If you are not working on your book than blogging is good. Write every day. Make the time to do it. Its a job like any other, so if you want to go to your home office at 9am and leave it 5pm than that is the way to go. You could change your hours to whatever you want. Its cool to go to work in your PJ's. I don't, at least I haven't done that yet but hey why not?
How Clean Is Your House is on the tube right now. Its a show on the BBC. Man, the English are pigs. Wait, they came to US and I've seen a couple of the American shows. Man, Americans are pigs. doesn't matter where you live there are people who do't clean. I can not get over how some of these houses, homes are left. One girl in Cal. let her cat throw up all over and didn't clean it up! Plus the cat pooped in her bed and Kim and Aggie found that. I love those two. They are just to much. But they know what they are talking about when it comes to cleaning. I think for a lot of the people that have such dirty houses are helped a great deal by these two ladies. You feel a hell of a lot different when you have a clean house. Everything is put away, your furniture is clean and you can find it. You can now invite your friends and family to visit. You feel a lot better about yourself. You have to. Better spirits, happy even. I think its a great service. I just wonder how badly these people feel at first knowing that they are on TV and everyone will know there dirty little secret. Sham on me. I made a pun.
I started packing up for my trip to FL. First stop NC then onward. I need day clothes and nighttime clothes, a few pairs of shoes, and all the other stuff I can't live without for 21 days.
Thank goodness I bought my ticket a while ago and should not have to pay for my suitcases. If I do, then the big bag will be paid for and I will take the smaller one on the plane with me. I've gotten used to not having to carry anything when I am waiting for my connecting flight. But, oh well, what can you do.
OK I think I've done enough today on writing. I know I've done enough work around the house. My back is hurting. I can't be carry the clothes baskets up and down the stairs. My pain is like a knife going through me sometimes. I will see my bone manipilater and Wilmot tomorrow. Hopefully I will feel better after that. I am getting my hair cut too. So much to do. I dyed my hair today and its a nice brown but its not the color I thought I was getting. will have to find a lighter color and do it again before I leave.
And so on to the night time things to do. Like dinner and all that stuff.

Lost

I thought I posted to my blog but I lost it.

Oops

I guess I did write my little blog in the wrong place. That's all right. Now I know for next time. My poor cats have fleas. I clean them but they keep coming. Mulder my male is thin, He was never that heavy but he seems to be thinner to me. He's running around and eating so I guess its just worry for nothing. My three females are all crazy, especially Sammie. She is so fat. She can't jump up on anything. LOL Scully and Meowie are fleet of foot and loud of mouth. I love them all.
Ok other things to do. You all have a great whatever til I remember to come back.

My First Blog

Well this has been fun. I tried to make a comment on an authors web site and it wouldn't. I don't know why but that is the way things go sometimes.
I don't think anyone will write on this blog except me.

Maybe once I write my novel and it gets published and I can get someone to design a page for me then maybe someone will leave me a comment. We shall see. I really don't know what I am supposed to do with this. At least now I have a screen name that can be used on other blogs.
