Just a few quick lines tonight. I think I've finally figured out a few more things on here. Added several other blogs - still plenty of room for more. I had some trouble with a couple so will try again tomorrow. Blogger keeps giving me error messages but doesn't tell me why.


Also added a subscription bar so anyone who actually wants to know when I update can do so by email.


Time for the conference is fast approaching. On Thursday, I went out to lunch with Maribeth and Patty. We ended up going shopping for a dress for Patty to wear to her son's wedding and I ended up with my Award Night dress. A somewhat expensive dress but thanks to two great friends, we got it whittled down with discounts and a gift (thanks you two!) until it was quite a manageable price.


Went out tonight with Sister #1 and tried some more clothes. At her suggestion, I tried on some Jaclyn Smith separates-- a tiger print skirt and orangish sweater blouse - um - I don't think so. I couldn't find anything so will go look again this week.


Have to really get cracking this week on writing related work. I find myself in the somewhat enviable situation of being paid to write for an educational website. It's writing and I'm being paid but it's not fiction. Will have to budget my time better this week so I can do both.
Next week is the girl's camp and I haven't a clue where to buy rock salt.

Arghhh! I hate shopping for clothes unless I know exactly what I'm after--e.g. something I've seen advertised ON SALE! Good luck! Blog is looking good!

Donna...

Far as I can tell, you have no renegade music appearing on your blog. :-) So not to worry, you won't drive me away with it. Actually, truth be told, I believe that like everything else in the blogosphere, if you don't add it, it don't happen...

So just don't add it, and you're fine!

(heh heh)
Janny, who has to get back to work now

It's crazy how work and non work stuff can get in the way of us and our fiction writing, huh?

Press on and hang tough. See you later!

So glad you have found a nice dress for the big event. Good luck with your writing!

Rock salt? I don't know where you'd find it either. I'm hoping you've found it by now, though. :0)
