Random 101 Learn It Here

First, let me just say if I could go back and do it all over again, I'd so sport these glasses. In fact, if I could come up with them now, I'd wear them today. Totally would. Okay...moving on.

Technically, I'm not here but I am. As in, it feels like I'm here to you because you're reading my words. But I'm not actually here. I'm somewhere else. 

In my writing/editing cave to be exact. Well most of the day! Part of it I'm at work and...
Today is my anniversary! My husband has put up with my mess for 18 years! Talk about a hero! 
Thanks to my new Thirty One
file box and wall hanger, my
writing space is better
organized! So here's where I really am!


But I am working on revisions. My goal is to get this joker sent out to critique partners in about three weeks. 

My kids are out of school for summer, and I'm taking a couple days off to spend with them, i.e. force them by standing over them to clean their rooms correctly. Not like they clean. Like I clean.

Do your kids do that?

"Kids, clean your rooms!"

"Like your kind of clean?" 

Is there any other way than mine? Uh...no. No there is not. We're seeing what fits, what doesn't and hauling anything that doesn't to GoodWill. Then I will know if my daughter really is telling the truth when she says, "I have nothing to wear."
And hey, talk about dedication to branding!
See how my new glasses match the circles on my banner?
Yeah, I'm that good. Truth is, it was an accident. But whatever.

Also, did I mention I'm trying to work on revisions in all this? Yeah. I thought I might have. In fact, I have a small circle of sunburn on ONE leg to prove I've been revising. How does this prove I've been revising?...well it doesn't to you. But I know how long I sat outside reading through my ms. It's not suspense either. It's contemporary romance bordering romantic comedy. I say bordering because I may be the only one that finds it funny.

So I'll be off the blogosphere until May 31st when I guest post about Mr. Wrong at Casey Herringshaw's place. We hear so much about Mr. Right, I thought it's high time we talk about  the tool you never married or will never marry. And you'd be surprised what sprang to mind about this after watching an episode of Hannibal. Just sayin.

So find me on facebook or twitter if you can't live without me. And if you can, it'll hurt my feelings. At least for a minute. 
If my back hurts, I have this treadmill desk, which is just a few pieces of wood. 
My son came running through my room the other night and my husband said, "Hey, watch out before you hit your head on your mama's lumber yard." Whatever. 


Would you rather walk a mile in someone else's shoes--literally like at least two sizes too big. Or walk a mile in your own shoes (literal shoes) but walk 100 miles further than you would if you were in someone else's shoes that were too big for your feet? Also, this walking would be done in one sitting. Well not really sitting, but you get it...don't you? ;)

  1. Uh, can we have someone shut off Jessica's coffeepot? Please?

    FUN post! Loved it!

    And as for the walking bit, you'll just have to ask the chaps who carry my sedan chair. I'll stop whipping them for a moment, so they might pay better attention.

    Guess I'll just have to follow closely on FB and Twitter for a few days.

    Because, seriously - even for eleven days, your absence will leave a hole.

    I like you.

  2. Wah, I'll miss you!

    Happy Anniversary!! (hubby and I will be celebrating our 18th next month, too!)

    I would walk the extra in my own shoes. (I could use the exercise) LOL

  3. Loved your fun thoughts this morning! Happy anniversary! (We celebrate our 29th in July. I was a child bride. ;) )

    I'd walk a mile in the shoes that were two big. I'd make do. :)

    Hugs, gal!

  5. I would walk in my own shoes. I don't deal with change very well and I would want my old comfy shoes on.

    I LOVE your treadmill desk. So cool. You know that you can't escape me. Even if you're taking a break, I'll find you. ;)

  6. Okay, okay, there is no question in my mind that your contemporary romance is going to be funny. All a person has to do is read this post to know that. Love the glasses too. And the comment about the "tool you didn't marry"...I CANNOT wait to read that post. :)

    Hope you have a WONDERFUL anniversary!!

    As for walking in someone else's shoes...totally the too-big ones. Because hey, I am okay with looking like a clown.

  7. Happy Anniversary!!

    I would probably walk barefoot.

  8. Happy Anniversary! Hope you and your husband have a wonderful time celebrating.

    I wish you well on the revisions.

    Right now I'm happy to be walking in my own shoes free of pain. While the cortisone shot I had for my heel spur hurt like crazy, it was worth it. Who knew I'd reach a point in life where I'd be grateful to simply stand on my own two feet and walk without limping?

  10. Was I the only one who had to read that prompt three or four times to get it straight in my head? No? Well then...

    I guess the too-big shoes, because I'm lazy like that and it would save me steps!

  11. Happy Anniversary!

    As for me and my shoes, we shall stay together. Everyone's shoes tell a story, and I don't want to walk in someone's story. I need to walk my own story, no matter how long or challenging it may be.

    I have my own lumberyard too!! Gotta love the treadmill desk.

  12. Happy Anniversary, Jess!

    I don't know about the shoes. I guess I'll wear the big ones and only do one mile. Blisters either way :-)

  13. LOL...this post made me laugh out loud. Seriously...lumber yard, indeed! Ha!

    Happy Anniversary and have some fun with the kiddos!

  14. Happy Anniversary, Jessica! Loved how the circles on your glasses match your picture, lol! Hmmm, I'd walk a few miles in someone else's shoes, but the minute I passed a shoe store, I'd buy a pair that fit. Ha!
