Hey! How you doing?
I am having a holy sh*t morning. To put it in context, I wake up when my kids do. I stay up far too late writing. (or Facebook garage saleing – you know whatevs)
So the first kid comes in and cuddles in and lets me go back to sleep. But the second kid comes in the bed and wiggles. As only a 3 year old can do (or a golden retriever). He finally looks up at me and takes my face in his hands and says, “Can we get up now?” (Love you too, buddy)
So amid the normal Monday getting kids ready, I-don’t-want-to-go-to-school whine, I get an email. (because lord knows it we could have patient zero for the zombie apocalypse in my house and there would still be time to check emails)
I won my category – romantic elements in the Futuristic, Fantasy, & Paranormal RWA chapter’s On The Far Side contest. (wow, that was long)
Picture the long pause as I stood up and tried to process that news. I never win anything. Seriously. Never. I even lose the cakewalk at school (which is a whole other blog post about assumptions that I would have any idea what the heck a cakewalk was, but I digress).
I may have squeed. Outloud. I may have written the group of gals that are my writing go-to peeps. I may have had to sit down. And then stand back up again.
I got asked what does it mean? That proverbial record screeched to a stop.
Wow, I have no idea.
Maybe this crazy idea that I could really entertain people has some merit. 🙂
Have a great week!

I love it! Squeed – I’m gonna have to look that one up – or is it a Claudia-ism? Based on context, it sounds like something I plan to do when I finally get that big paycheck. LOL. Not the one from my day job.
Sincere congratulations, Mary! After all your hard work it is paying off (despite short nights and looooonnnnggg days 🙂
