    The Waiting…

    Lately, in my house with college apps having been out for a while for the dear twins and us having gotten some good and not good news from different places we are all going a bit nutty around here. We’re still waiting to hear from some top choices for both kids. Still stressed over how it will all play out come September and I won’t get into the stress the DH and I feel over how it will work out financially. I’m just living on it will.

    To top it off I have a book out on submission that has been out forever but that’s just how it goes in publishing. No news is no news or just a no and you have to move on. But I still can’t help constantly checking my emails. See I’m not one to compartmentalize and put things in the back of my mind. Everything stays right of front talking up too much space.

    All that said I woke up with morning and this song popped into my head. Good for a writer and a high school senior. Enjoy.

    If Only…

    If only I could bring half the feeling that Adele brings to her music to my writing I’d be a happy lady. She moves me so much. I shall be running and getting her new CD 21 asap. It’s like there is a story in every song.

    Love her! Enjoy.

    New Soul

    Though we know this song from being a Mac and I’m all PC I still love it and the video. I think we all have the opportunity to be New Souls inside.

    Happy Friday!





    If you’ve never been I invite you to my other home on the web: Becoming True Me. Just click on the feet over to your right.  Yeah they’re my feet don’t laugh. Part of my journey was getting over my fugly feet and embracing them. So no laughing. Ok you can, I do. LOL.

    Metro Memories

    What’s Jack up to? Poor Jack is trying to catch a breeze just like me. It’s too hot for the dog to do anything but chill where he can.

    Happy Monday! So summer is officially here. Today the dear twins go to their summer job orientation (Yay for kids working) and I start on getting into my summer writing swing. Let’s hope I swing big.

    I hope you had a good weekend. Me? I heard this song well after midnight on Saturday night while playing Blackjack  waaaayyy past my bedtime and it brought back so many memories. Yeah, it was a fun weekend.


    P.S. Not enough guys with perfect Covergirl coral lips in videos anymore.

    Lifted we have a Wild Winner

    What’s Jack up to? As I write this Jack is tip tapping around. His little nails making lots of noise on the wood floor. Though he just got a spiffy new summer cut I think the nails could use more help. Or maybe I could use more Patience.

    Come on Eileen… and Steve

    What’s Jack up to?  I don’t want to say it too loud but Jack has been pretty good these past few days. All sweet and snugly and not too demanding and toddlerish. Of course not that I’ve said it on ye old blog he will totally show out today. Watch out for the fireworks folks.

    Thanks to all who commented on the Lifted giveaway from yesterday. There is still time to enter today. So please go to yesterday’s post and leave a comment to enter to win a copy of Wendy’s book Lifted.

    In honor of my birthday week I thought I’d post things that I like very much. Now I’m sure I posted this song before but hey it’s my blog so I’ll do what I like and post it again. My favorite 80’s tune Come on Eileen.

    And in honor of all the disappointment over not hearing Steve Jobs say that the new iPhone would be available on Verizon yesterday I posted this song in Twitter. This goes out to all of us left longing…

    Have a super day!
