Most of you have probably noticed my lack of posts this week - I've been under the weather. Not H1N1 flu, just plain old cold symptoms. Keeping my fingers crossed this swine flu passes over my family!
1.) My thoughts and prayers go out the the soldiers and families living at Fort Hood. It is inconceivable that an army psychologist could protest going to Iraq by killing so many people and injuring so many more. I'll continue to watch this story with a heavy heart.
2.) Two pieces of great news this week - first, I got the call from the Ragged Edge Community Theatre I've been waiting for - they offered me the job of Office Administrator! I was starting to get anxious that I'd blown the last interview, so my patience (and lots of prayers) paid off. I start my newest job on Monday.
3.) Second piece of great news - a story I submitted to NEW SOUTHERNER magazine for their latest contest was selected as a winner! It will be published later this spring. I am excited, overwhelmed and oh, so happy!
4.) Baby Desiree Carter is growing by leaps and bounds - heard to believe she will be 10 days old tomorrow. Of course, I haven't gotten to see her or hold her for 2 days because I'm afraid I'll make her sick. Hopefully this weekend I can see her again.
5.) Please keep my Uncle Curtis in your thoughts and prayers. He went in for a routine colonoscopy this week and they found cancer - taking him immediately into surgery. So far, so good, but it will be several days before we learn the biopsy results.
6.) I've been reading the House of Night young adult series this week by P.C. Cast and her daughter Kristin Cast. I have finished MARKED and will be finished with BETRAYED today. This is an interesting series about fledgling vampires and the school they go to. Call it TWILIGHT meets HARRY POTTER - very good fantasy fun.
7.) The Kentucky Book Fair is tomorrow in Frankfort and I was so looking forward to going. I think I'm going to end up having to stay home - I still don't feel 100% and I sure don't want to make anyone else sick.
8.) Last, but not least, Happy Birthday to my Mom - Brenda Carolyn Sallee. Happy Birthday, Mom - I love you bunches!!
