Thinking of a happy place ....

I'm still blogging and slogging. I was on vacation for a week (see picture of what my sunsets looked like), and got embroiled in various publishing things, but I'm back, at least for a while.

"Publishing Things" = See, I was offered a publishing contract.

YIPPEE. Happy dance!

But there's been a glitch with the contract -- I sent it, they didn't get it, I've been in limbo. So I sort of announced it but I can't REALLY announce it or shout about my release date or shout about my book or do promo because it's not REAL yet.


Add to this the fact that I've had car troubles. Had an 8-year-old car, started having troubles (that damn Check Engine light -- I'll blog about that someday when I can laugh about it). Well, the Spousal Unit needs a new car (he's using my 12-year-old car as his, which still runs like a top, but it's bound to die someday). So we figured I'd pass off the Eight-Year-Old to him, let him fix it a bit, and use it. So I bought a new car.

Yep. New car had a glitch. Had to be towed to the dealership with 300 miles on it to be fixed.

Double sigh.

My tarot cards say that things are Getting Better and Count Your Blessings.

It's tough sometimes, though.

Think Happy Places. Remember Happy Places.

See picture above.

That's where I came in.
