I Got What I Wanted, But...

Wow.  It's been a loooooooong time since I posted. *sheepish look*

My only excuse is that I have three part time jobs and three children, and I was finishing revisions on my manuscript.  And, really, those are pretty good excuses, I think.

Okay, maybe not.  But I have news!  (No, sadly not that kind of news YET.)  But it IS news I have been waiting 13 MONTHS to tell you.


I finally have internet at my house! *cue fanfare*

I can hardly believe I managed that long without internet at home. o.O

And, now that I have it, I ... don't want to use it that much.


I know. It's utterly weird.  I do enjoy being able to type emails on a normal keyboard instead of with my thumbs.  And it's nice to be able to click over to someone's blogpost from twitter and be able to actually read the blog, rather than having the right sidebar covering the words.


I'm so used to my emails on my phone.  And twitter on my phone.  And even the Blueboards on my phone.  I find the full sites overwhelming.

So. Weird.

I guess that means that I really could adapt to anything.  LOL.

In other news, I'd like to point you to a few things going on around the web.

First, my crit partner and friend, JA Souders is having a BOOK DEAL CELEBRATION EXTRAVAGANZA!  Head over and check it out.

Also, Jean Reidy is having an online auction to celebrate the release of her picture book, LIGHT UP THE NIGHT, and give books to a library in Uganda.  Check that out and bid!


  1. You're a bigger and better person than I. I dislike my dependence, but was lost on our family's eight day no-net.

  2. It is surprising what we can get used to, but I'll bet the net gets you all wrapped up in it again before you know it ;)

  3. I'm addicted to being online. I admit it. I couldn't imagine not having the internet. I will check email on my phone but other sites I find too hard to use on such a small screen.

  4. This seriously calls for a celebration (will be drinking a mimosa for you this weekend).

    It's been SO long! :)

  5. Three part-time jobs, three kids, and revisions is PLENTY of reason (not excuse). :) And, hey, so is not having internet at home all this time. You must be thrilled.
