Tuesday's Stuff and Things #... 4?

So for today's SnT, I thought I'd mention...

I can't stop checking my inbox! Seriously. Chores and tasks and all are interrupted every few minutes for a quick run to the computer. Does it get any better?

I've finished reading my Advance Reading Copy of Karen Dionne's Freezing Point. Wow. But that's all I'll say now. I'll be posting a review in the next day or so... if I can do it without having to reference the book itself, which my husband stole and took to work. :) And might I say? I've had some personal correspondence with Karen. She's fabulously sweet, and has been supportive of my own writing endeavors. Karen, if you're out there: You rock!

Kimmirich tagged me with a writing prompt. I'm to take a secret, or the concept of one, and expound upon it in some way. I'm brainstorming, and I'll post that this week, too. A writing exercise based on her prompt will be great! I think. Read her poem here, and be sure to note the details of her book, The Unbreakable Child, which will be published Spring of 2009.

And lastly, Wee One woke up with a stuffy/runny nose this morning. It's progressed to lethargy and a raspy voice this afternoon, so I'm afraid she's coming down with a bad cold. And now I'm starting to feel "puny" myself, as my grandma used to say. Hope it won't be too rotten to us.

And now off to start dinner! Big One has requested scrambled eggs and sausage...

Yum on breakfast dinner, my favorite and thank you for the mention of The Unbreakable Child.

You can use secret or fear or laughter, ters what ever is easiest!

Look forward to reading your prompt and see if you can go a full hour before checking those emails. :D
hugs!

Janna Qualman said...

Absolutely, Kimmi. I'm so pleased to share the word on your upcoming book!

Oh yes, I may have to use laughter or fear. Hmm... thinking...

And now, finally, off to breakfast dinner. ;)

Love those scrambled eggs dinners, a little toast with jam, o.j. Haven't had one of those in awhile, but I'm feeling one approaching!

Janna Qualman said...

I happened to have some french bread sitting around, so we toasted that! It was right good with our spread. :)

Melanie Avila said...

Janna, that's so cool Karen is encouraging you. She's sweet, eh? I can't wait to read your review! Ibis is still at the halfway mark - I think he forgot about it.

Joshua said...

eggs = yum

and did you see Borat??? And if so what did a wholesum family person think of it? I laughed so hard it hurt.

Joshua said...

lol, my cousin Janna, a pure ray of light in a dark world.....but that doesnt mean she can't enjoy a good old fashioned R rated movie once in a blue moon. :)

Joshua said...

I never said you were lame, its just the Leadbetter gene we all have doesn't allow for a lot of craziness and fun.

And a big movie collection a....you are my favorite cousin you know that right! :)

Movies are awesome!!!!!

I need to come down and see ya before I head to see Justin, we can hit the town, grab a soda, and see a Royals game!

Joshua said...

awesome, looking forward to it. So your man is working 2 jobs huh? Is it more car sutff or something different?

Joshua said...

lmaol, there is nothing wrong with a full converstation here. Its funnier if others want to know what we are talking about, they will have to go back and forth between our pages! ha!

i hope the remodeling gets done soon, its needs to rest. Dont wanna wear pappa out.

Terri Tiffany said...

Someone is a busy bee! I'm tired after just reading this post!

Janna Qualman said...

Terri - Usually I try to stick with beef sausage... I just prefer not to do pork, at all. Although I can't rid myself of bacon cravings. And I myself don't like sausages at all, though my family does.

Aaron, I like it! :)

I think I'm about to put a rubber band around my wrist to snap every time I try to check my inbox. But then again, I'd still check my inbox, but now I'd just have sore wrists...

Janna Qualman said...

Colby, now there's an idea. *snicker*
