Things Are Starting Off Right


Plan for the day:

1) get ALL of my children on their respective school busses without running through the streets in my underwear–check. :yes:

2) input final revisions on synopsis–not yet but I WILL. :yes:

3) mail proposal–not yet, but as God is my witness, this proposal will never go hungry again….or something like that. It’s going in the mail today. :yes:

The house remains only half reroofed. Will the half-nakey roofers come today? Wait–it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a SINGLE CLOUD IN THE SKY, SO MAYBE NOT. You know, IT MIGHT RAIN.

Don’t forget the seventh installment of my free eHarlequin online PAX read — Hot Target! Click on the green “read” button at the bottom and scroll down to Hot Target. This is the second to last installment! TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK!

    Good luck with your list. I might make one myself today.

  3. Cherlyn says:

    Here’s to checking off everything on your “to-do” list today! :thumbsup:

  4. kacey says:

    well, I’m sure the kids will appreciate the not running out in your underwear, even if they don’t appreciate the mailing off your proposal :rotfl:

  5. Mary says:

    Good luck on the proposal.

  6. Mechele Armstrong says:

    So far so good. Good luck on everything. Including roofers!

  7. Margery Scott says:

    Sounds like a good plan, especially the mailing part. :bananadance:

  8. Eve says:

    :wall:September 5! You’re a real MEAN AUTHOR (thunk as head hits desk) and second to last installment? But, but, but … I want more.:hissyfit:

    In case you haven’t figured it out – I’m really loving this story!

  9. Toni Anderson says:

    Sounds like a good plan–good luck 😯

  10. Lynn Daniels says:

    WOO HOO for not flashing the bus driver the morning! So, did the roofers show up?

  11. Estella Kissell says:

    Lists, lists, lists. I hate them, but they are a necessary(as far as I’m concerned) part of life. Good Luck checking everything off.:wall:

  12. Joely says:

    Good luck with that synopsis! I’m loving the story–only one more week and I’ll be put out of my misery of waiting!!

  13. Jill says:

    I’m going to have a roofing crew here this week too, unless the 5% chance of rain scares them away. Babies …

  14. Marcy says:

    I hope the crew of HOT roofers show up today instead of the tepid ones. :mrgreen:

  15. Melissa says:

    But, I would think running through the streets in your underwear would be so liberating…:lol:

    Have a good day, Suz

  16. ValMarie says:

    Yay for to do lists. I’ve made one for today as well: a combination of house stuff, writing stuff, and helping my husband get ready for school (he teaches music).

    We’ll see how much of it gets done.

    *waves pom-poms to cheer you on in your productivity*

  17. Carol says:

    I’m enjoying Hot Target so much! I can’t wait until next week!!!

    Good luck on the proposal! :thumbsup:

  18. Melissa Mc says:

    Good luck getting all the items on your To Do list checked off! And I sure hope it doesn’t rain. Will the leftovers of Katerina be headed your way?

  19. Kelly says:

    Good luck with getting that proposal out, Suzanne! Sheesh, those roofers are taking forever. :mrgreen:

  20. Emma S says:

    Good luck with the proposal. As for the nekkid roofers, I mean sure, you want your roof done, but are you really missing that much if they’re not cute?

  21. Lis says:

    Good luck with the synopsis and proposal!

  22. Carol Burnside says:

    Love lists.

    Not so much roofers. (Long, boring story there, so I’ll spare you all.)

    Love Hot Target. Action and angst. Yeah. :thumbsup:

  23. Sharon says:

    Sigh… I have a to do list today. I am not admitting how many I haven’t er uh I mean HAVE checked off the list. :shocked:

    Good luck with yours!

  24. Tori says:

    Well, you’re on quite a roll today. :bananadance:

  25. Jordan says:

    Good Luck with the proposal!!!

  26. ruby55 says:

    Huh, I’m getting fed up with this. I commented and the computer froze again. It happens on average 2-3 times a day. So I have to start all over again.

    Maybe the roofers aren’t supposed to come today so that you have peace and quiet to get the synopsis done. 😀

    “Hot Target” is getting really hot with Mom willing to sacrifice herself for her daughter. That’s what mommies and daddies do.

    According to my siblings, since I don’t have any kids, I’ve never had to make any sacrifices. Say what? From the age of six until I left high school I made sacrifices for THEM–without ever thinking that was what I was doing. I had to be “vice-mom” whenever my mother was not around; I had to spend about a month in a quarantine hospital over Christmas, no less, because they feared that my baby brother next after me might catch my scarlet fever; I sacrificed time to change their smelly diapers, as well as those of their kids; pick up crying kids–well, moms know the routine–and they’ve forgotten everything. :loser: Oh well, I’ll survive even this.

  27. Melissa Marsh says:

    First day of school today for us – I wish they could ride the bus. 😉 I know I had to!
    Hope your day went well, Suzanne!

  28. Michelle says:

    Did you mail the proposal? Hope you had a great day. And Hot Target is such a fabulous read. 🙂

  29. Amy K. says:

    Good luck on all of it! (And congrats on the no-underwear-flashing.) :bananadance:

  30. Mary says:

    Where are you? When you don’t blog, the world is askew!!

  31. Suzanne says:

    I had a ton of trouble getting online this morning!

    Thanks for missing me!:mrgreen:
