Goals for the Week of Mother’s Day

My poor mom always has her birthday and Mother’s Day lumped together. Her birthday is the 11th, my grandmother’s was the 12th. We’re celebrating today, and this year including my sister-in-law, whose birthday was the 3rd. Busy time of year for birthdays! Next is my brother, then Fred, then Josh, spaced out just enough so that we can have all the parties :)

Four more weeks of school, and I have a deadline in there, so….gulp!

  1. Celebrate Mother’s Day and Mom’s birthday
  2. Work on Avalon Island
  3. update website
  4. set up promos for the rerelease of Hot Shot
  5. Take out ads
  6. Cook more!

Goals for Teacher Appreciation Week

Well, I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t put Dukey to sleep. She went on her own on Saturday morning. I’m very mad at my cowardice, but it was more than I could deal with. She’s at peace, now, and so am I, to be honest.

This week, I’m focusing on writing and packing up my classroom. We have to pack EVERYTHING but two drawers of the file cabinet. I don’t have a LOT, but it’s going to take a lot of boxes.

1) Work on Avalon Island.

2) Go see Avengers

3) Cook more to save money! I was so tired last week, we barely ate at home at all! Of course, we may not get to the grocery store this week, so….

Goals for Week of AVENGERS!!!

WOW, last week was a crazy week, with yesterday being the craziest, but I made it! Thank God for monitoring during testing, is all I have to say.

This week will be a sad one. We’ll be saying goodbye to Dukey, our oldest cat. She’s 15 and, well, we probably should have taken her a month ago, but we just couldn’t, after Stormy. I had no idea she’d hold on this long, but she’s miserable. On top of that, my youngest cat has been missing since the terrible storms that rolled through Thursday night. So I’m super-stressed about that.

Today will be one more party with my visitors, then back to work tomorrow!

1) Dinner at Salt Lick

2) Vet for Dukey

3) drum circle inservice

4) Go see Avengers

5) WORK ON AVALON ISLAND!!! I haven’t written since Thursday, y’all! This is BAD. It is due to my editor May 18!!

Happy Birthday–and Happy Release Day–To ME!!!

The Cowboy’s Promenade is out today at all retailers, only 99 cents through the weekend, as a thank-you to my loyal readers. It’s the story of single mom Juliana and single dad Trace trying to make a go of a relationship, when both have been hurt before. I’ve had this pairing planned since the first book, Waltz Back to Texas, but Trace was a lot harder than I thought to convince. His divorce hasn’t been final long, and he’s in the middle of a custody battle….so how about a marriage of convenience? Only Juliana wants more.

I listened to a lot of country music while writing this. My playlist is below.

And I used Scott Eastwood and a young Debra Messing. Can you see it?
