I'm rambling today....

1. For my children summer is over. They went back today and I'm partly happy and partly sad. My oldest daughter is starting her senior year. My middle child, my son, is going to the 8th grade. And my youngest daughter is starting 4th grade. They are growing up so quickly. It's hard for me to wrap my head and my heart around the idea that my oldest daughter will be leaving in a year. 

2. It's nice to have older children because I get them to help fill-out the gazillion forms they bring home. My husband says the same thing every year, "Oh. You should have asked me to help with all those papers." This offer is posed after I have blisters on my fingers and they ooze blood...

3. I could really use a giant piece of chocolate fudge cake with chocolate fudge icing. But I think I'll stick to my favorite candy - York Peppermint Patties. I should probably buy stock in the company I eat them so much!

4. I'm currently sending one of my MS out on submissions. I'm so nervous. I hate the waiting game, but I know it's necessary. I'm just glad I haven't taken up biting my nails. Yet.

What's going on in your world?

Have a great day. Read a book and laugh!


  1. My daughter starts next Tuesday, which is late for us. I'm glad I get her for the extra week though. We are enjoying the last days of summer. :)

    1. Enjoy it while you can! They grow so fast but if I recall your daughter was pretty young. Have a great last couple days.

  2. Good for you for getting your MS out there! The waiting is really hard, but you can't win if you don't enter! :-)

    1. Thanks, Lynn. It is a scary endeavor but one all authors must endure.
