Did we all have a good weekend?
Why yes, that is a margarita in a travel coffee mug. I assure you that using a standard margarita glass is not a wise idea when trying to balance your drink on uneven ground while surrounded by three toddlers. Please also note the container of extra salt (on the theory that a coffee mug has a very small rim that may need replenishing), and the bowl of pasta salad (after all, drinking on an empty stomach would be irresponsible). They say that Sippys Cups Are Not For Chardonnay, and I agree, because I don't drink wine.
In short, happy Sunday to me! Four adults, three 2-year-olds (who all had nice long naps), an inflatable toddler pool and water table, yummy food, and sunny weather = awesome.
This also means that I did not plan anything clever for my blog today. So, I'll be taking suggestions. What do you want to read about? More genre ranting? Lessons I've learned about querying? Tips that helped me write when the going was tough? Balancing writing with an office job? Balancing writing with parenting a toddler? (I was laid off shortly after having my daughter, so I can't talk about balancing writing with an office job and a toddler. One or the other only.) Editing, since I may be one of the few authors who actually loves editing?
Tomorrow I'll say something more writerly. But today, I am doing research for a possible new "day job." Wish me luck!
