Untitled (It's Friday. Give me a break)

IN THE NEWS: " Police say a New Jersey man posed as a female animal doctor, ran an illegal veterinary practice and set up a phony rescue agency that may have duped pet lovers out of thousands of dollars." Read more HERE.

Well, I didn't start Twilight.

I miss my e-reader too much and just didn't feel like picking up a book. Sad, I know. But I did manage to do a little writing instead. So, that's good, right?

After cutting and pasting for the last two days, I think I FINALLY have two finished chapters. I finished reading the book I wanted (before my e-reader died), too. Therefore, I met my goals for the week.

Boo-yah!

On a side note, it's COLD where I am.

Not Fargo, North Dakota cold, but it's pretty darn cold. So... you know what you don't want to be doing in this kind of weather? Chase a trash can outside your house in your bare feet at 3 o'clock in the morning. Yep. I can guarantee you that you don't want to be doing that.

No, I didn't, but the hubby did. (And if you could have seen his face, you'd have known he wasn't happy)

Well, I'm taking the weekend off now. I deserve it (and so does the hubby).

It's 13 degrees in Atlanta! That is insane... I'm just thankful that I'm inside my house and not out in the freezing water like those people in New York. What a story! God was definitely with that flight and its pilot.

Have a great weekend!

I slept in polar fleece pants, a sweatshirt and socks last night. And I live in FL!

I would love to know WHY your hubby was chasing a trash can at 3 am?!

Glad you finished writing your two chapters. That is a good feeling.

It's very cold here in Ohio.

Enjoy your weekend!

Glad you met your goals. WIth five kids, I decided setting goals for ME just didn't work. Why ws Dh chasing a can at three in the morning? Was it kidnapped by raccoons?? Have a fabulous weekend.

Ha! Bella: He was chasing it because the wind was so strong it blew the gate open. We kept hearing banging noises. The hubby went to investigate and well... it wasn't good. (for him) LOL!

Congrats on meeting your goals! It is freezing here too. Right now my poor hands are like ice.

It's hot and muggy here, but raining off and on. Can't have it all I guess. Jennifer, apart from the backlight freezing, do you like the reader and recommend it?

I saw them when I was in the US last year. I went into the Sony store here and they don't stock them. Grrrr! According to the guy they have no intention of stocking them in the future either. I need to organize family and friends to do lots of walk-ins.
