Sadly, this is very true. I’m giving blood to the “vampires” around noon so I don’t get my normal quota of the caffeine stuffs this morning. Sadly, I haven’t given blood in years and years. I’m doing it now because there’s a big shortage and their doing free antibody tests. I’d like to know if I’ve had the beer flue or not. In other news…
I’m pretty much boycotting TV. They’ve pretty much pissed me off for a variety of reasons. I really try hard not to get political around the intrawebz but that’s getting harder and harder. Canceling Live PD was about the last straw. FYI, in a former life, I carried a badge. In fact, I’ve carried two badges–one as an investigator with a suburban police department and the other as an airport rescue firefighter. Every time someone I know jumps on a particular bandwagon and mouths off that other lives don’t matter is like a slap in my face. Moving on.
I have a new book out! I probably should have started off this update with that news but well…not enough coffee and the thought of someone sticking me with a needle later today… Anyway, MOONSTRUCK: BETRAYAL is now live lots of places. Just click on the cover pic or the title and head over to the nice folks at Books2Read where all the retail links that are live are listed. Go forth and grab it. Please? Momma needs to buy groceries next month. 😉
I finished up my relisten of Nalini Singh’s Psi-Changling: Trinity series with the lastest release, ALPHA NIGHT. Good book. I enjoyed it. As nothing new grabbed my attention, I’ve returned to my re-listen of JD Robb’s In Death series. Dallas and Roarke are pretty much my chicken soup read.
In other writing news, two new characters have presented themselves and I’ve started the “research” on them. They are Cajun Wolves, partners in
crimelaw enforcement, and they’ve informed me of their names. One wears “Hawaiian” print shirts and his favorite is pink flamingoes on a black background. 🙄 The other is tall, dark, and broody. Now I need to find approprite heroines. I have the feeling these two will be fun to write. Gosh, I even have the titles of their respective books and that SELDOM happens. I ususally don’t figure out the title until about half-way. If I’m lucky. Anyway…
Speaking of Stormy, he came to stay for most of Tuesday while his dad did an interview. Baseball Boy decided to stay at the school where he’s currently teaching and coaching. We had a fun day. Then their AC went out so Stormy came back Thursday while his dad stayed home to wait on the AC repair guy. Stormy ended up spending the night because AC dude couldn’t make it and it was hot. It got fixed Friday so all is good. During this time, we also had a second guest, Daisy. Daisy is a blue heeler pup that is terribly energetic and terribly submissive. My boys didn’t quite know what to do with her besides growl, which made her go belly up and pee. 🤦♀️ Loki is just now deigning to foregive me. Cats hold grudges don’cha know, and he decided the puppy being here was all my fault. It wasn’t! A friend of LG had an out-of-town funeral and the entire family was going, therefore no place to park pupper. And they live 45 minutes away so we weren’t making that drive. We ALL breathed a big sigh of relief when they picked her up Saturday evening.
Speaking of LG, I grabbed the mail one day and as he has taken over our dining room as his home office, I passed by waving a flyer we got in the mail and the conversation went like this:
Me: Good grief. McDonald’s is doing delivery.
LG: McDelivery. *laughter*
Me: How’d you know?
Me: That they’re calling it McDelivery.
At which point we both burst out laughing.
The weekend was fun–mostly. Lawyer Guy and a couple of guys from his Legion post helped a Viet Nam vet’s widow move on Friday. I went over to help after I got MOONSTRUCK: BETRAYAL uploaded. It was hot, sweaty work and he took a tumble so once we got home, I put him on the couch and made a burger run to Braum’s. Saturday was kid soccer. Stormy scored some goals and help set up goals for other members of his team. It was awesome to watch all those different kids play as a team and watching all those different parents and grandparents getting along. As it should be. Saturday night was quiet. Last evening, the Post had a flag retirement ceremony. It was really cool! The local fire department was there for “fire watch”–old and damaged flags are burned after being retired. There was Boy Scout troop, a church youth group, and some veterans from the post.
So that was all the excitement in my world. What went on your little corner of the world? Are you healthy? Safe? Surviving?
