When you're a writer and you're a mom, you have to sometimes (nah, ALL the time) claw out the time you need to make words appear on paper. Which is a little hard when a) it's summer break and b) it's one child's major huge birthday-month celebration.
The scoop about my past week is pretty much summed up with this picture:
|Lucky Number 7!|
This week had me planning Birthday Party, Part 3. (And, hey, having three sevens now makes sense! That and the "Lucky Number 7" motif I was playing off of.)
Part 1 was a class party at the children's museum, replete with pancakes and pajamas.
Part 2 was a grandma-thrown party, replete with crepes and monkeyball bread and a "grown-up" camera.
|The New Grown-Up Camera|
I'll take it.
This is sort of what all the revelry looked like. Complete with poker chip plates. :oD
|Click here to see the video this comes from (cuteness overload!)|
|Funny because it's so, so right...scary right|
And the birthday fun soon turned to 95 degree days and 99% humidity. Which meant closing the windows, turning on the A/C, and playing inside with La Petite Adult's playhouse.

This led me to be a little stir crazy. Luckily, Amazon Prime came through with this really great video:
|This has low-cost production values, but the moves are AWESOME|
And when I went off to sit for a few minutes to have some me time, I found this on my favorite "Me" site, Pinterest:
|A cup full of latte and a phone open to Pinterest...ahhhhhh|
And then I moved over to Instagram and found this:
|Even Lisa Rinna in her fancy house has dreams too? Good to know!|
So speaking of creating my dreams and my job...I'm working on my new Bad Mom Rents a Man story. Actually, two stories--a short of about 8,000 words and Part II (approximately 25,000 words). I am writing some pretty craptastic words at the moment, but that's always the way. By revision #5 (out of the eight I do), I'm feeling pretty okay about it.
In other words, I don't feel like doing this anymore:
|Oh Kevin. You'll never grow out of this. Us adults feel this way a lot.|
Until the next Sunday Story...
P.S. This Monday, July 14, is Digital Book Day! HIS FAVORITE REGRET will be available as a PDF for $0.00. That's right. I didn't forget to put a number in. You're welcome. ;o)
