Goodness, has it really been almost two months since my last post? Well, not really since I post on the 15th of every month over at the Wet Noodle Posse blog (http://wetnoodleposse.blogspot.com/) but I forgot to post here.
Anyway, I got--and quit--a job. Quit before I started, actually. I decided it didn't make sense to drive 45 miles each way, after dark on lonely country roads to work 4 hours a day for $8 an hour. I lost--and regained--an editor. Read a blurb in the RWR that Kim Cardascia had been removed from the list of acquiring editors at St. Martin's and nearly had heart failure. Kim has a full of one book and a partial of another. I love Kim, thought she was the sweetest person I'd ever met when I had my appointment with her at the RWA Dallas conference. She's my dream editor. We even grew up in the same town and went to rival high schools--though admittedly she went many years after I did. Anyway, I was relieved to learn she's still at St. Martin's, just not taking any more mss right now so she can deal with her already heavy work load.
I was totally blown away today. My sister and I haven't gotten along in years and I don't talk to her much. But my mom sent me a copy of my nephew's new CD and I was amazed. That boy has talent. You can listen to cuts from the CD here.. http://www.calebmillermusic.com/HomePage.html
I've been really sad and depressed lately. My oldest son has decided to stay in California for a few more years. We'd just finally gotten him home for a few months when he went back out there for what was supposed to have been a temporary contract. Well, he has a new girlfriend now, and she can't move for several years, so he's staying out there to be with her. Yes, I'm happy for him, but I miss him.
I'll be back soon, but right now some chocolate chip cookies are calling my name...
