Weekend Update

Update from the last post: She bought the copy of my book I toted along and told me that if I was willing, she'd take me on a single-day-a-week basis. This time I didn't say no. I do get paid slightly more this way (so not the point), and, as my husband reminded me, at least now I'll have a schedule. Now I just need to wait and see if she can work this out and which day of the week I get. And plan to cram everything else in my life into four and a half days instead of five.

This is the rainbow we chased Friday on our way up to my in-laws' lakehouse. My older son claims it's the first rainbow he's ever seen, but I find that hard to believe given the number I've pointed out to him. It was actually a double rainbow at one point, and we could intermittantly see the whole thing. Very exciting.

Today I went to the book launch party of a good friend of mine from my local RWA chapter, Dawn Temple. She's been waiting a long time to see her debut novel in print--27 months from contract to publication!--and it was an exciting day. She has a spunky, sassy writing voice and a great sense of humor--I highly recommend her.

I'm glad everything worked out for Mother's Day Out. Sounds like you'll have the best of both worlds now. Time at the school with the kids and time to write. :)

The book looks great. I always love reading new authors and supporting them as well.

Science Guy and I saw a complete rainbow a couple of days ago and it was beautiful. How fun to 'chase' it. :)
