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!
