Back to work

Quote of the Day:
If the shoe fits, it’s too expensive.
– Adrienne Guso

From my son: “Mom, the cat is hiding his poop again.”

Yes, son. Thank you. I know.

This came up one day because he was curious about the cat box and what it was for. So I explained to him the cat went potty in the box and the “buried” his poop. Which was probably not the wisest thing to tell a 4 year old. :hehe:

Been meaning to blog about this too. The other night I had the strangest dream. I was in a canoe that had these magical capabilities – I could time-travel on it and it took me to a place where I kept speaking and hearing French (of which I cannot do). Because I’m curious about dream interpretation, I looked up what it could mean. So I looked up “canoe” and “French”.

Here’s what I got.

canoe: To see a canoe in your dream, represents serenity, simplicity, and independence. It is also a reflection of your emotional balance. You are moving ahead via your own power and determination.
French: If you do no speak French and you hear French in your dream, signifies a sensual and romantic part of yourself. It is often referred to as the language of love. Perhaps you are unwilling to understand or not giving enough attention to some waking relationship. To dream that you are speaking French, signifies an expression of love.

It got all these from Dream Moods, if you’re interested in finding out symbols in your dreams.

I’ve completed my first round of edits for the short story I sold to Inara Press. Contract is in the mail and it will be released in two weeks! Cover art and blurb forms are done, too.

I’ve been wanting a featherbed to top my mattress for the last few weeks. They are super expensive – the really nice ones, anyway. And I want real down. Not fiberfill. So I was browsing Penney’s website and discovered they had them on sale. And since I had a $15 coupon for my birthday from them, I hit the road to go to the store. They had the same deal at the store. It was originally $119. At the register, it rang up $79 (surprised) and then I got $15 off and THEN since I used my store card, I got an additional 15 percent off. I got the thing for $59! I was so happy, I went right home, stripped the bed and put it on. It’s like laying on a cloud. SOOOOOO super comfy. I love it. I did not want to get out bed this morning.

And yesterday I did something I’ve been meaning to do for a while. I worked out. OMG I feel so good right now. A little sore, but after the workout, I felt wonderful. So tomorrow morning, I’m setting my alarm and getting up early and working out again. I want to do this M-W-F and just tone everything up. I want a super flat stomach. I’ve already dropped a dress size, but if I can tone up and shape up, that will make me very happy.

Plus my mom and my sister want me to go on a cruise with them next year. My mom wants me to room with her and if I’m going to do this, then I need to be in top shape so I can look as hot as possible.


Actually, I really want to do this just for me. No one but me.

Okay, that’s enough babbling for the day. It’s hard to get back to work after a long weekend. Especially a relaxing one. Hope everyone here in the States had a smashing Memorial Day.

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
