Well my brother's 30th birthday party, which was supposed to be a surprise--but wasn't because his girlfriend "blew it"--turned out well for the most part. My mother and brother's son came up, my father and other mother showed up too. My sister and her husband, my roommate, and a few mutual friends were there too. It was fun. I stayed longer than I planned but still left before everyone got uber drunk. It's not so much fun watching other drunk people mess around when you're sober. Since I don't drink but once every two-three months, it happens often, but I don't mind. I'm not much a bar-fly type anymore. That phase ended when I turned 22ish.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all you moms out there.
Mine is still sleeping in the living room on her AEROBed, because she said she froze and tossed and turned all night. Ah well. I take her out to get something good to eat, that'll make up for it. I guess.
I've found a new crack:
It's yummy. You should try it. :-) I think it helped me break through my weightloss plateau. So that's always helpful! Of course it doesn't help those middle of the night bathroom runs that happen every night between 4 and 5 am! However, the fact I found a DIET drink I actually LOVE is rare, so I'm excited.
I'm almost ready to start back writing Lucky Book Two again. I don't know why I've been in such a rut lately, but I need to break it soon before I got nutty. Don't you hate it when you know exactly what you want to do, have all the ideas in your head, know the plot, and such, and have no drive to write? I do. And it's been like that for about a month.
Shame on me.
I know it mostly has to do with working full time again, going to the gym after work, and well...my TV shows. That will change in a couple of weeks, so I'm looking forward to some mad ass writing clips in the future.
In other news:
My publisher is accepting synopsis and query letters for Sci-fi or Fantasy books, so if you're interested let me know. (I saw the cover work for one of the books already and it looks great! I'm very excited to see more.)
I went to the DMV on Thursday to get a new drivers license and it took me TEN FREAKIN MINUTES! I was floored, seriously. Previously at the NJ DMV you were lucky if you got out of there in an hour. I couldn't believe it when I was done. I said to the lady. "Really? Are you kidding me?" Took the damn thing and ran out before they changed their mind. LOL!
I got a belated birthday present from my fairy friend. It's a bracelet that says: Dream, Believe, Achieve. Something I needed to hear, so I'm glad she got it for me.
