Weekend Recap #22

MENTAL STATUS: "Grouchy". Feeling achy, I have a dentist appointment this morning, and I have to drive an hour each way to see him. Grrr.

I'll make this fast since I need to leave... soon. (And I haven't showered yet)

We had two--count 'em--TWO soccer games this weekend. One Friday night and one Saturday morning. My daughter did in fact make contact with the ball on more than one occasion, but I have to say I saw her volunteering to be benched more than I would have liked. Oh well. She does like it, and it's fun for us to watch. Plus, the hubby's dry sarcasm during the game has made him a favorite to sit next to by me and a few other parents.

Saturday, we got rained on. Twice. But the sun came out toward the last part of the day and we were able to have a nice BBQ get-together with two other couples and their kids.

Sunday was beautiful, so we headed to the beach. We practically had the place to ourselves. The water was very cold, but we had a nice relaxing time just sitting on the sand. Ahhh...

Then I checked my e-mail at the end of this weekend and found an agent request in my in-box--which was a serendipity since I had not been looking for an agent. I had entered the Romance Junkies contest and apparently Deidre Knight from the Knight Agency read one of my chapters and requested to see more. Cool, huh? I guess it just goes to show, you never know who's going to be reading them!

Although I think my story is too short for what she represents, I am--needless to say--very flattered and even feel a bit Wayne's World "I'm not worthy" by the offer.

So that was my weekend in a nutshell.

What did you do?
