Random ramblings of an absentee blogger.



So, this is what I got to stare at this weekend. Our lovely cable company decided to crap out on me and they took their sweet time getting it back up. This coupled with a bout of sickness around the house has caused me to be somewhat absent from blogging. So now I figured I would put out a bunch of random thoughts and such.


So this is what I have been staring at in my internet/cable free life.



Ah video games, always there to steal the hours of my life provide me with  much needed entertainment. 

Also, I got pictures in of some of the jewelry sent out from the giveaway. Layla's Trinkets(<---link) got them all out in a great time.

In other news, the amazing Janie Junebug did an extremely fun interview with me over on her blog, you can check it out here. She will also be giving her review of the book tomorrow so please go check that out. I can't wait to hear what she thought.

Also this week I got one of the most anticipated reviews of my book. Anastasia got to read it. I am always amazed by her insight and the things she picks up at her age. She actually read it in two days and gave me some amazing notes.



Anyway, that is a few snapshots from my life, how has everyone been? As always have fun and keep writing.

  1. Sorry about your Internet. Why do those things always happen on the weekend when no one is around to fix it?

  2. I can't possibly be as insightful as Anastasia – and I'm not joking. I don't know what it is about young readers, but so often, they have an instinct for what works and what one needs to change.

    Love,
    Janie

  9. Our internet went down for a few days earlier this month. Lightning struck too close to the cable box outside and fried everything. The cable for the TV, the internet, and our home phones. Gah. I feel your pain.

  11. Well, at least you had your video game to help with the downtime :) I grew up without the internet, but flip out if it goes down for five minutes, lol.

    Sounds like you're on Comcast, though....haha!

  12. Ours is called Comporium, but they have about the same track record. I didn't have Internet until I was a teen and then it wasn't my computer. Still I am so used to it now.
