I need to hurry and finish up a few little things. I'm expecting a guest today. That's right. My editor's assistant emailed me yesterday to let me know that First Fridays is on its way back to me and should be here today. That was quicker than I thought! I just knew I'd have at least two weeks to work on other stuff, but intead, my editor finished it in a week! So, I'm about to do the serious apartment cleaning and laundry that I've put off for what seems like ages. This afternoon, I'll be into the second round of revisions for First Fridays.

Ups and downs this week. For the first time this season, I went out to watch Monday night football. Last year, I lost a Superbowl bet and was to pay one of the guys $50. Last night, I just knew the Colts were going to win, even though the Rams are my team. But then, the Rams were up by something like 17 points. So, Mikey comes over to me and says, "Double or nothing?" So, I say yes, because I'm thinking there's no way the Rams can lose a 17 point lead. Then I say no, because I'm like, it's the undefeated Colts. Then, he's taunting me about being a chicken and my pride kicks in. So, I stick my chest out and say "It's on!" and I proceed to talk trash the rest of the night. Well, at least until the third quarter. That's when I got up and told Mikey that I'd pay him his #$%!&*! $100 later.

I went upstairs just in time to see Pujols hit a home run at the top of the 9th to win the game and bring the game back to St. Louis. Then I watched last night as we lost. But we had a good season! :-) Going to try to be there when they take the wrecking ball to Busch Stadium.

And, I didn't win Powerball. But then again, I didn't play either. Gotta remember to start doing that...

Girl you are making me tired. Seriously. But I guess there are other things you could be doing if your head wasn't on straight. Can't wait for First Friday's.

Congrats again, Twin! Sorry I've been gone for awhile ... I guess your "busy"ness has rubbed off on me now!

Need a loan to pay off your friend? : )

LOL. I'm always wishing I'd win the lottery but not playing seems to stand in my way....

Foxy,
Still holdin' man, still holdin'. :-)

Dom,
Well, just imagine what I'm feeling! First Fridays must be good. Just found out that my editor thinks it's an even stronger book than Counting Raindrops! Isn't that something? Wow!

Hey Twin,
Thanks for the congrats. No apologies for being busy. BELIEVE ME, I understand! LOL And um...no, I'll hold off on the loan for now. I'm trying to use my womanly charms to erase the debt. So far, I've tried batting my eyelashes and playing dumb to knowing about football and what I was betting on. So far, nothing. LOL

Suzanne,
Me too. I need to walk my behind a couple of steps over to the store and buy at least one ticket! LOL
