This picture is scarily accurate.

Okay, the other cupcake recipe was GOOD! Here’s the recipe:

Cream 8 oz of cream cheese with 1/3 cup sugar. Add an egg and a pinch of salt. Blend. Stir in 8 oz of choc. chips. Set aside.

Make a cake mix according to direction on the box. Fill cupcake papers 2/3 of the way.
Add one spoonful of the cream cheese mix to the center of each cupcake (will sink and act as filling.) Bake as directed on the box.

Mmmm.

We had fun yesterday. We watched the movie INDEPENDENCE DAY while it was hot, then walked over from my mom’s place to my uncle’s, where they’d made a “pool house.” They had an inflatable pool inside a tent. Hey, it kept it clean, which was a problem I had last year. So my uncle and Baby Brother got in the pool, and my aunt, mom and me put our feet in and ate snow cones. Then we ate the armadillo cake (think Steel Magnolias) that Baby Brother made, and watched fireworks from a rise in front of my uncle’s house. We could have seen better if the hills hadn’t been in the way.

It was so windy, and we worried someone might light fireworks and set the dry grass on fire. There would have been no stopping it. Thank goodness people were reasonable.

On our way out, though, my other brother called. They had to take his basset Betsy to the emergency vet. She couldn’t stand and she was shaking a lot and her breathing was labored. I called later and they were on their way home from the vet, who said it seems to be spinal. He suspects a herniated disc. They’re going to try steroids to see if that helps, but if she’s not better in a week, they have to put her down, since surgery’s cost prohibitive. (He’s still paying for HIS back surgery.) This will be terrible. Betsy’s the same age as my dog, Stormy, but she’s like their child. So send good thoughts, please!

This week is going to be another busy one. I hope I can keep up!

1) revise short stories and start revisions on paranormal
2) write synopses and queries for both short stories
3) start busting tail on RS (I want rough draft done by summer’s end) (10000 words)
4) 2 essays for a promotion opportunity
5) One day of JUST DOING PROMO
6) get ready for son’s 18th birthday (WAAAAHHHH!)
7) breakfast with Mom
8) lunch with writer bud
9) make 1 skirt, cut out another
10) grocery store/library
11) nap/exercise
