Too Much To Do, Not Enough Time
Hello out there! I know it's been a while since I last blogged. I just hadn't realized how long it had been! I've been busy with the relatives and school stuff. Absolutely no time to work on any writing, which makes me sad, but I'm going to try and do a little today. The boys are all out at a hardware store. Mom's downstairs ironing. I'm sending and answering e-mails. I just got confirmation that my Texas teaching certificate will be available online in a couple of days and my paper copy will be in the mail. I'm a home-owner! Yay! I bought a condo and signed the paperwork last Friday. Some other relatives have been displaced due to Hurricane Rita, so I offered to let them stay in the condo until they're allowed/ able to go home. Oh, and on Thursday, 9/23, I checked my mail before I picked up the first cousin. In the mail was a letter from the original editor who worked with me and kept encouraging me (even as she rejected everything). I'd asked her if she'd still be interested in reading Under Cover of Darkness and she said YES! So, not only am I scrambling to get the school book fair over with, to make sure the relatives are enjoying themselves, to gather lessons for my French class and revising chapters with the help of my CP Deb, now I need to focus on completing the entire book for the editor! I'm going to try and get it in the mail to her within the month. We shall see if that's possible!
