Holiday Mode Part 2

IN THE NEWS: According to, "Sometimes you need a police officer; sometimes you need a tissue. Confuse the two, and it could cost you.
A woman in this Charleston suburb was charged with battery on a police officer after the officer said she wiped her nose on the back of his shirt. Cpl. S.E. Elliott said he had arrested the 36-year-old woman last week after seeing her slap a man, bite him on the elbow and spit in his face. Elliott said the woman wiped her nose on him as he led her into the police station for booking on a charge of domestic battery. Battery on a police officer is defined as intentionally making physical contact of an insulting or provoking nature with an officer."

Ugh. Still can't bring myself to go back to my usual routine. Thus, I have not visited my writing forums, or my usual blog stops. SORRY.

But the girlie is home from school, we're all recovering from having our stomachs stretched out from all the goodies we've been consuming, and we're all still playing with our Christmas gifts.

And speaking of Christmas gifts... I won't bore you with everything I received, but I'm pleased to say that although I did not get a laptop, I did get a brand new NEO Alphasmart. Woo-hoo! I'm also pretty happy because I got my Rachel Ray cookbook, a Victoria Secret's sweater, and a pink Boston Red Sox hat and visor. (Go Sox!)

I also got some other writing paraphernalia--including a book of writing inspirations and a t-shirt that says, "Careful, or You'll End Up in My Novel". LOL! (Got to love family)

Anyhew, I might try to venture out to the --cough cough-- gym today. Then try to get in on some of those after Christmas deals at the mall.

What did you get for Christmas?

Yay, Jennifer! *clapping hands* You'll love love love Alphie (yes, I already know him well enough to give him a nickname) Not nearly as challenging as I feared. So if I can figure it out... it must be virtually idiot proof! =)

Yippee on the AlphaSmart! I love mine because it MAKES me write. Being on the computer I'm always going online to check my e-mail and look up things -- major time wasters. When I'm out and only have my Alphie I simply sit and work on the story. I can always do the research when I get back home.

Today I'm meeting a friend for lunch at one o'clock. I told her to meet me in the cafe at Barnes & Noble because I'm going there at eleven to write for two hours. (I'm working on Ch. 13!) Then we'll decide where we're doing lunch.

Have a great day, and keep girlie busy. Does she watch The Super Readers? Destin (the 4-yr-old) is crazy about that show.

Love the t-shirt! And I'll have to look up what this alphasmart is...I've never heard of it!

Yay!! I love the t-shirt, too. My ex is pretty paranoid about now, wondering how I'll put him in. ;)

The boys have been fighting so I'm ready for school to start back.
