I was at Blockbuster and got a call from the Emily coordinator - Breaking Daylight finalled in the Emily!! This gives this book a perfect record in contests, and me a perfect record in the Emily! Hope something comes of it!

My Baby Brother came to get his dog Saturday night and on the way home saw a coyote - IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD! We're less than a mile from the highway, though there has been a lot of development in the area. Still - my kitties!

Completely lazy day yesterday – I didn’t get out of my pjs! I took a shower and got back into another pair! I read 2 GH entries, finished a book that resolved a relatively big conflict in 3 pages ☹, started reading another book (about 100 pages!), did some revisions on my SHOMI contest entry and watched Blood Diamond (good) and The Last Legion (NOT good – I know, Natalie warned me!)

Today, no big plans, unless the boy hangs with his friends tonight. If he does, I’m going to the movies, since the dh has to work. We will hit Blockbuster and Chick-Fil-A, though (have some coupons that expire today!)

Wow, what a year, huh?

I'm sorry to see it go, because I really should have been done with the story I'm working on by now. LOL

And I got an IPod in 2007, too!

Big congrats on your terrific track record in the Emily!

Jennifer, don't you LOVE your iPod? The boy got his before my brother went into the hospital for his back, and we kept ourselves busy with it, then I got one, then I got my dh one because he had a 3rd generation one. His is even cooler....

Keep plugging away on that book! The calendar doesn't matter, finishing does.

Dawn, seriously thinking about it - the boy's plans fell through - parents don't want their kids driving tonight, and who can blame them? I didn't get much of a nap, though, so we'll see if I'm still awake ;)

Thanks, Esri!!!!
