People who say they sleep like a baby usually don't have one. ~ Leo J. Burke

Didn't do much yesterday for my birthday (except watch my trailer over and over, LOL). I had a sick puppy again and couldn't leave her alone for any length of time. She was fine in the morning, after being off food for 14 hours, but the moment she started eating again? Oy!

So... for my birthday, I took a "runny" dog outside every fifteen minutes. I also found out that my friend, Michele, has fried her computer modem and will be offline for several days (this is a public service announcement, since many of you who read here also read her blog--don't worry if you don't see a new post for a bit). Also, my DH has a wicked cold and can't sleep. He crawled out of bed about ten last night and laid on the couch so he wouldn't bother me. Of course, the fact that I had a puppy who needed to go out about every 90 minutes was bothersome, too, but at least I got a few cat naps in between. Hopefully today will be better.

I did get some writing done (yay!), but I need to polish up a synopsis for "Kitchen Matches" and get that sent off (yes, I have found a place to submit it that makes me very happy), so this will be a short post.


Your Daily Dakota:

"Hey, this is a cool perch to look down upon you, you peons."


What Your Name Means

You are confident, self assured, and capable. You are not easily intimidated.
You master any and all skills easily. You don't have to work hard for what you want.
You make your life out to be exactly how you want it. And you'll knock down anyone who gets in your way!

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something. You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense. You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing. You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long. You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.

Actually, yeah...mostly that's right on except for the "You don't stick with any one thing for very long" bit, because I have pretty amazing "stick-to-it-iveness".

What about you?

I'm sorry both Dakota and hubby are not feeling well. I hope they both get better soon.

Yay on you finding a new place to submit your story. How long is the process from submission to when they notify you about it?

I don't blame you about watching the trailer over and over, it is so awesome. Can you submit your trailer to other place to promote this story?

Let us know when Michele is back online.

Now that is a pose by Dakota. You know she rules.

I'm going to put the quiz on my blog but most of what it sais is on the money.

Have a good weekend.

Love your trailer! That's awesome.

I did the same thing when Allie made my trailer. I watched it over and over. Allie's a great person and friend.

I'm sorry about your sick puppy and hubby. Hope both will be better soon. It seems so many people are sick right now.

I took the quiz and will post it later on my blog. Very interesting.

I hope you can do something more celebratory when everyone's healthy again! I'm sorry both Dakota and DH are under the weather.

*hugs* on having to cope with the sickies in your household. I hope everyone's right as rain soon!

Setting a goal. WILL find an outlet for children's story before the end of the month.

(Groovy can't believe she just said that. The story has already been cheerfully rejected once...)

If someone made me a trailer like yours, I'd be watching it over and over again! Hope your puppy feels better.

I rented Prince and Me 1 and 2 for my viewing pleasure this weekend!

I hope the puppy and the hubs feel bettersoon! And YAY! You found somewhere to submit your story!

I hope you have a better day Sunday.
