Brief Update....

Today was craft day for my daughter at my mom's house and, though we ended up watching both American Idol and part two of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (I cried the entire time, and DD dissolved into hysterical tears once or twice herself) in the morning, I had from about 12:30 until about 4:30 CHILD FREE.

To those of you with kids who go to school... I hope you appreciate that time alone. I am almost never, ever alone, and man do I miss it.

Anyway, I got quite a bit accomplished writing-wise, and managed to write and submit two short pieces to a couple of PAYING Flash Fiction markets (they don't pay a lot, but my goal is to be able to call myself A Writer on next years taxes, so I need to show some income) as well as do some more in my "Breakout Novel" workbook.

All-in-all, a good day.

Now, of course, I have no idea what to write tomorrow... but I just couldn't wait to share.

Gotta fly -- it's almost time for the American Idol "kick-off" show (that's what DD calls it). I'm thinking that Bucky should go. He looks like a sweetie and all that, but he did pretty poorly this time. Guess we'll have to see, hmmmm?

My kids do go to school but I still never manage to have any time to myself. I can't remember the last time when I had more than 1 hour to myself. Must be nice.

Good American Idol! I'm glad Bucky is still around. Sad to see Kevin go, but it was just a matter of time. As long as its not Chris or Taylor. Or Mandisa.

Just watched Lost and now I'm off to bed.
