August 30, 2005...Stitches hurt!

Today's agenda...kitchen safety.  Why, you ask?  Well, apparently I haven't learned it.  On Friday, while attempting to remove an avocado pit from a halved fruit, with the tip of a steak knife, the pit split, sending the knife entirely through my palm.  In one side, out the other-between the knuckles.  Gory, I know.  But that's not the half of it.  My eight year old daughter walks in, (picture me on my back on the floor, crying like a babe, with my hand wrapped in a dish towel), and says, 'Mom, why didn't you just use a spoon?'  Exactly!  Why didn't I use a spoon?  Why didn't I practice the common sense kitchen safety rules drilled into my head by my grandmother?  Who knows?  But I do know this...stitches hurt...more than shoving a knife through your hand.  And I now think we writers a cruel, insensitive lot for making the hero sit there, get twenty stitches on his upper thigh, without even letting him grimace from the pain in front of the heroine.  Until next time...

August 25, 2005...Meag's Hot Summer Pick's

Well, since no one has an opinion on the fall T.V. line-up, I'll assume you're all readers! In that case, you should be scoping out my MEAG'S PICK'S page on my web-site. It is FULL of great titles sure to keep you enthralled this summer...or what's left of it anyway! I plan on updating it for fall, so you better check it out while you can!

Just out of curiosity, what's everybody else reading?

August 24, 2005...New T.V. Season

I cannot wait for the new season of televison to start. Not that I even have cable, mind you. I'm just a LOST junkie!! I'm so gonna buy the first season dvd next month. Since I work Thursday nights, and my husband can't seem to work the vcr, I've missed at least half of them!

I used to watch ALIAS all the time, but didn't really get into it last season. No matter, it looks like T.V. exec's have finally caught onto the paranormal wave this season. I can't believe all of the crazy shows coming out! Mermaids, ghost hunters, seeing/talking to dead people, aliens...you name it, it's on!

What are you dying to see?

August 22, 2005...C'est la vie!

Where or where did this month go? As I foretold on my Aug. 4th post, it will be All Hallows Eve before you know it...then turkey day...and Santa pictures, and racking up the credit cards I've only just paid down from last year. Oh well! C'est la vie! Since I am sick of thinking about when I'll find out about book #1, I thought today I'd talk about...(drum roll please) ...garage sales! Yes, garage sales. I took my two kids "garage sale'n" this weekend, and you know what? We had a blast! I spent all of eight dollars, and it made their day. Yet me being, "the best mom in the whole wide world", was short-lived however. Dad had to go and steal my thunder by taking the family to the Wisconsin Dells on Sunday. But I'm not bitter. I had fun too! However, I discovered that as one ages, the roller coaster rides go from totally awesome thrill machines, to neck aching, stomach churning monsters! At least I finally understand why they have those warning signs posted at the entrance. To quote the infamous and wise, Tigger..."Ta ta for now!"Until next time...

August 18, 2005...Gettin' Nervous

Okay, it's Thursday night, and still no word from the publisher. It's starting to look like I just might get through the weekend without having to eat massive quantities of chocolate. That's not to say a rejection isn't coming...it just looks as if I might get a longer reprieve than I thought. Still, I can't figure out what's worse? The waiting or the knowing. I guess if they decide to contract my book, it will be the waiting! Anyway, I better get home, and get to bed. I have a spin class at 6am, and if I miss it again the instructor will put me in the front of class for sure!! Yikes!Until next time...

August 10, 2005...Gym Woes

O.k...I really have to start going to the gym again. So far I've missed two of my spin classes this week, and I'm feelin' guilty. The sad thing is I work there! You'd think I'd manage to go for the fun stuff, huh? But alas, 'tis not so.

I can't quite figure out what it is, but there is definately something about summer that makes me lethargic. Oh well, at least I know I'm not alone. My husband's been slacking, as have a lot of our members, (who will remain anonymous...for a fee...he he he, just kidding!).

My best guess is it's this raging heat. You see, I keep the air on 24/7 at home...a hard to break Californian habit...so when I go outside I'm instantly dragging. I mean, when I can't breath, the last thing I want to do is go running for a half hour! Yet, with my fans as my witness, (that's you mom), I avow I will rise at 5 am, work out for an hour, have an energy shake, and then proceed to take lay back down and nap until my kids wake me up. :-) Now, if they only knew how to brew coffee...

Until next time...

August 4, 2005...It's August ALREADY!?!

I can't believe it's August already! Before you know it school will start, a cold wind'll start blowin', and fat orange pumpkins will line my front walk. YIKES! Time flies much too fast when you get old...cliché but true!

Well, still no word from the editor...but I'm banking on receiving my first rejection. Harsh you say? Not when you take into consideration that J.K. Rowlings Harry Potter series got rejected 17 times before some lucky publisher decided to print it! And thank goodness they did too, I love those books! Hey...I should put those on my summer picks...something to ponder for sure. Anyhoo, I still intend on letting all of my tried and true fans out there, (hi sweetie) know as soon as I do. Feel free to cross your fingers and toes for me though! he he heUntil next time...
