A May Day Monday

I have a manuscript due in a week. Well…a week and a day. Normally, I’m done and working on hard edits by this time in the process. Granted this deadline had a short trigger but add that in with real life stuffs and while I’m not quite to the flailing stage, I’m close.

So…I wish I had exciting adventures to share. Nope. Nada. I worked all weekend. We did keep Stormageddon Friday night while Baseball Boy’s team played in a tournament. I suppose that was an adventure in babysitting. Lawyer Guy and I were exhausted by the time The Only arrived to pick him up. At one point, I had Stormy sitting in bed with me watching baseball. He doesn’t like to go to bed and fights going to sleep. Been there, done that (why yes, he DOES take after his mother, why do you ask?) “Don’t lay down,” I told him. “There’s no sleeping in this bed during baseball.” The kid was so tired he had the stumbles but he sat there. And fell asleep. Sitting up. He fell over sideways on the bed and woke himself up before I could catch him. And then he was awake until Mom arrived. So much for reverse psychology. 😆

This was a big weekend for college baseball and softball. The REAL OSU (Oklahoma State) is in the baseball regionals. As of this typing, they’re undefeated in the winner’s bracket of the Clemson regional. OU is undefeated in their bracket of the Women’s College World Series. So yay! Lots of sports playing in the background as I pound out the words. EDIT FOR UPDATE: OSU moves on to Super Regionals! YAY! OU moves on to the WCWS FINALS! YAYAY!

Oh, have I mentioned that I have a book releasing tomorrow? THE BOSS AND HIS COWGIRL was a very emotional “write” for me. Once you read it, I think you’ll figure out why. Clay and Georgie are prefect for each other and it all comes down to “What will a man do for the woman he loves?” It will be available in bookstores where romance is sold and at the big box stores like Walmart and Target. It’s supposed to populate the shelves Tuesday but I’ve learned sometimes the stockers take their own sweet time. I’ll be haunting my local stores. Well, in between mad bouts of writing. I know. I live such an exciting life, right?

So what exciting things did y’all do this weekend? I want to live vicariously through you!

  1. LOL about Storm. Smart lady. I wouldn’t have thought of that. Yay for book release day! I hope Wallyworld still has copies by the time I get there. They sold out of Allison’s latest and I still haven’t gotten a copy. =o\ Oh well, if I miss it at the store, I’ll order it off Amazon.

    Exciting? I went fishing. Didn’t catch anything worth mentioning but it was a good day for blowing the ol’ brain gaskets clean. That’s about as exciting as it got around here.

      Well, crossing fingers that mine hit the shelves on time and don’t sell out. Well…scratch that last part. I hope every copy of THE BOSS AND HIS COWGIRL on every shelf sells out–just not before you get your copy. 😀

      I wish I had time to just sit and stare at a bobber. It would probably help my mental health. :lol”

    I did the same thing you did this weekend. I wrote like a fiend in between doing dishes and fielding kids. Mr. SM came home with allergies kicking his butt so instead of writing a lot on Friday, I was taking care of him, too. But I wrote 4500 words this weekend, which is very good for me, so I might make my own deadline. Wuff. Good luck with yours and I’ll be haunting my own big box stores looking for your book, Silver. 😀

      I’m about to catch back up and I hope to have a day or two to do a hard edit. That said, I am liking the way the characters are shaping up. 😀 Here’s to many words before day is done! For both of us.

Got something to say?
