The Life of a Slacker


Has it really been nine days since I posted last? I truly am a slacker. So sorry.

I have no excuse. I've just been feeling "quiet" lately. Haven't shown my face much on Facebook either.

But here's a wrap-up of my life lately:

Critiquing some short stories for writer friends. One of those friends sent me an email thanking me for all the help I've given her on her writing. It was so sweet it brought tears to my eyes!

Catching up on some housework. Mountains of laundry. (Yes, I know, boring. Can't change the facts, though.)

Shopping for jeans. And actually finding ones that fit! Woot!

Homeschooling. Yeah, duh. :P

Last week the kids and I made wands since we didn't buy them at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (Universal Studios--see my last post). That was loads of fun. Leave a comment if you want to see pictures and I'll post them. Right now, I have neither time nor patience to figure out Blogger's new M.O. when it comes to pictures.

Watching movies. Harry Potter, of course, as we were put in the mood by our vacation. And last night, Prince of Persia. VERY GOOD, btw. It's a little hard to follow at first, but then something important is revealed and it all clicks into place. If you haven't seen it, it's worth a rent for sure!

Completely stressing over the fact that I'm submitting a short story AND Finding Angel to a small press. Trying to be positive without getting my hopes up so high that the fall might kill them.

And last night I started a wickedly cool jigsaw puzzle. A dragon. One of those cut-to-shape puzzles. I haven't worked on a puzzle for a while. Just so you know, I was raised by a master jigsaw puzzler. My dad. We spent many, many hours doing puzzles when I was growing up, and I love, love, love doing them. I'm as wicked-good at doing them as he is these days, too. I'll post a picture when I'm done.

So there ya go. The life of a slacker.

I can totally sympathize here!! It can be really intimidating. Hang in there! :)

And that's a cool story about your dad. :) It's great when you can share something with a parent. :)
