Where You'll Find Me

I'm currently running my blog over at WritersAfterDark.net. I'd love it if you stopped by and hang for a bit! I'll return the favor, promise!

Running two blogs gets a bit difficult, so bear with me while I figure things out. In the meantime, if I could interest you in industry news, writing tips, and poking some fun at writerly problems, you'll find me here:

Let's Celebrate!

This hop comes with easy instructions:
Sign up, post something to celebrate,
hop around and cheer on others, bask in warm glow.
Full instructions and badge here.

This week I'm celebrating:

1- I went to the casino over the weekend and got stopped at the entrance
for ID check! My ego was quite happy about that ;)
2- I had my hubby home from work for an extra day due to the long weekend.
(Though, I'm thrown off by the days and really really want to post this Friday hop tomorrow)
3- And finally, I invite you to celebrate my spanking new toy with me:

MacBook Pro
(Not for real though, don't touch it!)

What are you celebrating?

      I'm just glad my old laptop didn't die on me before I got this one :D

  4. 1. - You like looking younger than 21? Or do they ID everyone who looks younger than 30? Just wondering! My husband was carded at a baseball game when he was 55. He felt the need to argue. I would have just thanked the girl!
    2. - Yep, short weeks throw me, too. But then I'm home all the time, so weekends are kind of throwing me now. :)
    3. - I'm assuming the new toy is a laptop? Have fun with it! Frankly, I hope I never have to replace mine. I like the systems I have.
    What am I celebrating? I'm celebrating my cover release. Yay!

    1. Hi Stacy, thanks for stopping by ;)
      I did get stopped for looking younger than 21 and yes I like it... I'm in the 30's so that makes me feel pretty good lol

      Yes, its a laptop. My old one was giving me all sort of issues so I needed to replace it, but like you, I hope I never have to replace this one either!

  5. Yay for getting your ID checked. I remember when I was buying drink from a supermarket the day before my 25th birthday and I got asked for ID. It was a great feeling to think that I only looked 18!!

  6. You have a new laptop!
    Yeah, I'm really excited when someone checks my ID. You'd think the grey hair would be a giveaway though.

  7. Today we're celebrating we got our grass cut! It was looking like a hay field because we called someone to cut it, but it took him over a week to get here so our grass looked like a hay field. It was so long that some of the grass got stuck in the door to our car! Yikes. We should have considered getting a goat to help with mowing, but they eat everything. They're not very discriminating!
    We had an old riding mower, named Mow (we wanted him to remember what to do) but Mow had an untimely demise when his steering column broke, so now we've hired someone (other than a goat) to manicure our grass!

    1. Hahaha, you are seriously very funny Deanie.

      May Mow RIP but I hope he lived up to his name before that unfortunate column incident. Glad you have freshly mowed lawn, having a hay field, and getting it stuck on your car isn't too much fun. (Well, maybe it is for the grass but not us humans) :D
