I have started the official countdown to the Estimated Time of Departure for the Big Weekend. At the time of this writing, there will be less than 24 hours to go. WAHOO!

I’m SO looking forward to getting out of down and blowing off some steam for a while. It’s going to be greatness.

I actually have to work all day today. 😀 After I pick up the kiddo, we’re going to the book fair at the school so he can get his books on his wish list. I have to admit I’m really looking forward to that! And speaking of the book fair… I volunteered yesterday with the kiddo’s class to help them out on their wish list. It was great fun. The librarian thought I was nuts because I said it was great fun. hehe

There was the cutest little girl who reminded me a lot of my niece. She asked me to help her find books on horses so we scoured all the shelves for horsie books. She was so cute. The boys were cute too. All of them found the Star Wars and Indiana Jones books in a matter of seconds.

I chatted with the librarian after his class left to go back to work. Then I headed to the office.

I’m so happy to report a cold front came through and it was in the 40s last night. Talk about COLD! I also froze my bum off at soccer practice last night, too. Another mom and I chatted and shivered the entire time. That was the longest, coldest hour of my life. Well, so far. 😉

I got some critiquing done yesterday as well as getting in some words on the Magic story. I can’t stop thinking about the NaNo book, though, and I’m trying to decide where to start it.

Oh, and I’m very excited to report I’ve managed to get my niece interested in the Young Writer’s Program through NaNoWriMo. I think that’s just fabulous. My sis-in-law told me she’s started outlining her book. I hope she keeps that up. Working without a synopsis is mucho difficult.

Okay that’s it for me. Time to take the kiddo to school and get me to work. Happy Thursday!

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