Ten days! did that happen? Just proves that even when it's written down on a calendar right next to your viewing area, doesn't always mean it's seen LOL. But truth, I was buried in edits and thrilled to finish a submission--a Christmas one believe it or not but the deadline was last week--and I made it!!!

But, I will let you all know doesn't matter how many times you've submitted, how many times you've got a contract, how many times you've worked with the same editor, or how many times you've had a story release.....hitting that SEND button is still VERY SCARY. Even now I'm sitting here thinking if there was something I could have done better or change, or...or...or...get me drift? Yeah, neurotic to say the least--just ask my princess crit partners.

And, while I'm here, let me wish you all a bright green day and may you all find your pot of gold dreams at the end of the rainbows....

MORE SNOW! OMG, where is it all coming from?? The schools had another snow day last Wednesday and now they are calling for another 20-30cm by the end of the weekend....and driving home from work today was no picnic, let me tell you.

*Sigh* but it will make us appreciate the green all the more right? And clocks do spring ahead this weekend so LET THERE BE LIGHT!

Is it Spring yet?

I remember when we first moved here about eight years ago, that we were outside in just sweatshirts on March 10th....and a couple years after that we were out reading on the front porch one sunny afternoon. Yes, it's not March 10th yet but by the foot and a half snow outside my window, something tells me that isn't going to happen this year LOL. Man, I want spring...and soon!

I just sent out my March newsletter with the same wishes thrown up. If you're not a member, pop on over to the right side there and sign up or head over to my newsletter site at and sign up....then you can stay caught up on my Sensibly Insane World LOL.

I've updated most of my sites but I've been having some internet glitches and things like link pages and this blog are still being fiddled with. So anyone I promised links too, I'm still working on it, thanks.

Here's to spring coming VERY soon....
