Got Words?

IN THE NEWS: According to HappyNews.com, "Amazon.com Inc. is hoping to invigorate a nascent market for electronic books by introducing its own e-book reader with free wireless connectivity.
Monday's long-anticipated announcement comes as e-books remain a sliver of overall book sales, partly because they lack the comfort and intimacy of bound paper.
Amazon Chief Executive Jeff Bezos said the online retailer spent three years developing the Kindle reader, which the company is selling online for $399.
It is thinner than most paperbacks and weighs 10.3 ounces. Yet it can hold some 200 books, along with newspapers, magazines and an entire dictionary."

This cartoon from Inkygirl.com pretty much sums up my feelings. I did not write at all yesterday. Sigh. But I did help my daughter's class paint pumpkin pies.

I plant to write today. And buy some bagels. That's all.

How about you? What are your plans? (I better not hear Christmas shopping)

I'm doing a repeat of yesterday -- going to the library and writing as many pages as I can before I get so hungry I have to come home and eat. LOL!

Mmmm, bagels...

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)
Well, normally on Tuesdays we go to the library for Story Time (my 3yo), but he's a little sick, so we're skipping it. In the house for the morning, laid back. Maybe do some crafts while my 7 month old naps.

I'd actually LOVE to finish my shopping, though! lol

Perish the thought. :0

Today I will write. I will.

I, ah, think I still can.

Man, Sven is coming to take me away. I know he is. Someone must have told him I haven't written anything but a grocery list in the last two weeks.

I'm getting my hair done today! That's why you heard angels singing. They're tired of looking at my roots too.

I'm tending to my kiddos...and telling the inlaws over a pot roast dinner that baby # 3 is on the way tonight. *Sigh* I was just about tell Bryan to go get a vesectomy, too, I was ok with the two we had...apparently the big man upstairs has bigger plans for me right now! My first and second are 13 months apart and the second and this one will be 18 months apart. YIKES!

Hides bags behind back. "What Christmas shopping?" :-)

I'm wallowing in self-pity because I'm sick. :-D And if the child will ever fall asleep I may do some editing.

I'm intrigued by this whole painting of pies thing... Do you paint actual pies or paint pictures of them?
