Five for Friday

1. Why isn't there a magic button that finishes revisions for you? I'm almost done with mine, but it seems to be taking forever. Even still, I'm glad to be able to fix up my manuscript. I just wish I had a bit more time to work on it during the day. If I had two solid hours just to write, holy crap I can't even imagine how much I would get done!

2. I am living in a house of sickness. My oldest missed five days of school. Yeah. The other three are also sick and slowly recovering. Do you know what that means? I'm next.

3. I finally watched the second season of Awkward. and still love it. Cannot wait for next season!!!

4. Finally ordering Halloween costumes this weekend. My oldest is going as Hulk and my younger little guy wants to be the Thing from Fantastic Four, which was kind of a difficult costume to find since it hasn't been popular since oh, I don't know, 2005. My 2yo daughter is going as a cheerleader and my baby girl is going to be a Kangaroo (my sis-in-law let me borrow the costume and it's way cute and warm).

5. It has been raining like crazy around here this week. We haven't had real rain since April and I love it! I miss all the rainstorms from back east, they were hardcore.

Okay, the timer on my microwave is beeping which means my kids mac and cheese is done. Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. If you find the magic button, please send it to me. Sorry to hear everyone is sick. Hope you don't get it.

  2. Oh, I hope everyone is feeling all better soon! Poor things. :(
    The costumes sound fun! I will have a snow princess, a ninja turtle, a kitten and a ladybug over here this year. :)

  3. Hoping you don't catch the kid's yuckies!
    Cute sounding costumes!
    Love the rain!
    Haven't watched Awkward.
    Revisions are not fun, even if there were a magic button.

    Have a GREAT weekend:)

  4. 1. I think I found the button. On my keyboard it's called "Delete." I wish I could give you some of my hours. If we lent each other hours, does that mean we have LESS time to get things done or less things to get done with our time?

    2. The plague is upon us. I've decided that ice-cream is the only solution.

    3. Haven't watched "Awkward" yet! Really want to, but my TV schedule is all booked. And yet I find myself sitting alone on a Saturday night, trying to think of something to watch. You knows whats? "Awkward" it is.


    5. I love the rain! So far the weather's been kind and hasn't rained too horribly during the week, but when it rains here, it pours. Guess I have that to look forward to!

    Thanks Prerna, for supporting me. For as long as I've known you, you've been a joy--- a random act of kindness I need to brighten my day. In short, I adore you (no pun intended). I hope to someday return the smiles you've given me in some way or another. :)

    Lots of love and ill'n free wishes,

  5. I'm sorry your household has been so sick. That makes everything tough. Yay for mac and cheese though!

  6. Gah I know exactly how you feel! We've had a sick household recently. It's maddening.

  7. Revisions -might- be my favorite part of the writing process. ;) Much luck with yours, and I hope your kids get well soon!
