Wednesday? Really??

Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils. ~Louis Hector Berlioz

I really loved that quote -- it made me laugh. Is that wrong? ...but, moving on...

Monday, DH stayed home from work to hang out with the well pump people -- and, yes, we have our water back and it didn't cost us the farm. Hallelujah! It's amazing how much I missed not having running water -- washing hands, brushing teeth, flushing potties -- I'm so thrilled to return to this century.

So, anyway... DH stayed home on Monday. So my whole view of the week is messed up. I had something I was supposed to do on Tuesday... but, in my brain, yesterday was Monday. I called the lady at 5:30 p.m. when I remembered that is was, indeed, Tuesday. The good thing? She'd taken a long weekend, and had had the same problem! LOL...

I was so tired and discombobulated yesterday that I forgot to post my happy-ness. I figure I need two things today. So, without further ado, I give you day six and seven of:

You know what else makes me really happy? I'll even give you MORE than two! Contests!!

I found this at Judy's and thought I'd share:

Over at Ashwin’s blog, you will find one crazy blog owner!! You can win $2500!! To enter just copy this text and paste it in your blog!! But hurry, this competition will not last long! So get posting!
How cool is that? Talk about your viral blogging!

And Melissa is giving away books from RWA every week to her commenters commentors people who comment. Check it out!

And... if you tune in HERE on Monday, August 13th... I'll be giving away something for a some reason. It's a cool prize, (she said modestly), you'd love to be the winner AND it's easy to enter multiple times! How's that for really cool?

Feeling happier already?

Here's a video that always makes me nod my head in agreement -- and, yes, folks it's Country Music, because... well... that's what I listen to mostly. But it IS an American Idol finalist... :-)


I got a note from one of my editors today telling me she doesn't have my approval on the galley's for "Magic". That would probably be because I've never seen the galleys! Oops. This story takes place on Labor Day, so they want to release it soon (yeah, can you believe Labor Day is coming up already?? How did that happen?). Hopefully, she'll have it to me today, and hopefully it'll be perfect and not need to go back to production.

Fingers crossed.


All quiet at Pillar Place. Consider no news, good news. Clarisse is eating like crazy and shedding her skin and growing. I had to move her downstairs, though, because I kept forgetting to feed her since she's the only one left not looking like a dangling green blob.

Brandy asked, yesterday, if I would do this again next year. I have no idea if I'm up to it again. Ask me after the monarchs hatch and I get to handle flowers that fly.


Your Brain is 60% Female, 40% Male

Your brain is a healthy mix of male and female
You are both sensitive and savvy
Rational and reasonable, you tend to keep level headed
But you also tend to wear your heart on your sleeve

I have to admit to being a little worried, because I know I'm not terrifically female-ish. I don't care about clothes, or hair, or cute boys (except DH, of course). I'm glad to see I'm *mostly* female. LOL...


Melissa said...

Great video. I've never heard that song before.

Thanks for the contest plug!

Gay said...

Love the words, but the guy needs to emote more for a video... he looks like he's not really feeling it. But gotta say it again. Love the words.

Tori Lennox said...

Is that the Bucky Covington video? I can't watch YouTube stuff because I'm on pokey dial-up. But I still think he's too young for some of those things to be true for him. *g*

Congrats on the return of the water!

On the quiz, I got:

Your Brain is 47% Female, 53% Male
Your brain is a healthy mix of male and female
You are both sensitive and savvy
Rational and reasonable, you tend to keep level headed
But you also tend to wear your heart on your sleeve

Ceri said...

Yeah Bucky! My DD really liked him. A song that rings very true.

LOL Thanks for the comment over at my blog. It wasn't a hint :) Did I sound frustrated?

Brandy said...

YAY! Water is returned! Hope you get the galley situation worked out.
As for the Quiz I received "73% female and 27% male. *G*
Your brain leans female
You think with your heart, not your head
Sweet and considerate, you are a giver
But you're tough enough not to let anyone take advantage of you!"

Hope your day is returning to normal an djust so you know, it's wednesday! *G*

Dru said...

glad you got your water back.

In the quiz, I got 53% female/47% male with the same words as both you and Tori.

Did you get your galleys? I hope you had a good day.

Diane Craver said...

Glad you have water again. I'll do the quiz later. I want to write a few pages before I get too sleepy- not doing well finding time to write.

You always have great posts, Marianne!

Jen said...

I'm glad you've got your water back! And I really like Bucky and especially Carrie, even though I'm not a big country person... love the Dixie Chicks, though, and I've played Some Hearts so many times I think my i-pod's going to run away from me.
