Happy Birthday To Me!!

A wonderful day, despite having to get up for parent conferences where the parents didn't show. Still, I had to work for 4 hours and I was able to leave at 11:45. I dropped my dented car off at the repair place, got my rental and came home. My afternoon was spent in Barnes & Noble. I had my purchases in my hot little hands within 5 minutes, but I stayed and kept looking. I bought a new CD I've been waiting for- Evanescence, The Open Door. I'm listening to it now and it's awesome! Plus, I FINALLY found On a Highland Shore by Kathleen Givens!! Yay! I also bought Improper English by Katie MacAlister. This is another one I've spent quite a while searching for.

On the writing front, I tried to revise my UCOD prologue, but I really don't like it now. I might just forget about it for now and get back to my Scottish stories. I've got another contest entry to get out in the next few days. The deadline's still 3 weeks away, but if it's ready to go why not mail it early?

I'm off to finish celebrating....

Happy Birthday!!! Tomorrow is my DH's bday as well.

Sounds like a great day all around. All you need to top it off is chocolate and a big bottle of wine. :)

Actually, I partied with way too much beer and champagne on Saturday. I'm still recovering! Thanks, Elisabeth.

Happy B-Day. Sounds like you partied like we did in New Jersey. I'm still recovering too;))

Well, I've recovered enough to appraciate the bottle of wine one of my friends gave me today!
