Well the Oldsmobile is done. Her joints have been replaced and she no longer feels like she’s all over the road. Next project on her is either going to be adjusting the steering box or new tires…guess it depends on funds. Also changed the 20 year old oil while we were under there and corrected a few ‘jury rigs’ that the last owner did to her.
As for me, doing okay on the writing front. Picked up a few more clients so I’m keeping busy. Between housework, yard work (and there is a lot) and writing, I am almost continually on the go. My only problem is keeping myself on track and not distracted by video games, blogs etc.
Things have been hectic since my last post, I haven’t even had a chance to read or respond to any of my normal blogs. I’ve had a lot of writing to do lately, most of it ghost writing so I can’t even lay claim to it, but it pays the bills.
For a mother’s day/birthday gift my hubby bought me the front end assembly for my Oldsmobile, so once that shows up I’ll be spending a lot of time of underneath her replacing 70-year-old joints (if only it was that easy for the rest of us). Once done it will be a lot safer to take her to the car shows and I won’t have to worry about breaking something every time I hit a bump.
This is going to be my last free weekend for the next several months. The only thing I have planned is some yard work from here out I have every weekend booked, and some of them are double booked. It’s going to be a busy summer.
Not much else to say so I’m just going to sign off. Have a good one.
Time just seems to constantly escape. I am always putting this blog on hold because I have something else I need to do. I’m always thinking that I will get back to it later. The next thing I know it’s almost a month since I posted on here.
It has been a busy month. I’ve been working out a lot and getting into shape, I’ve been preparing my seedlings, getting ready for C2E2 and of course writing. All of this while trying to do all the normal family things like play shuttle for my son to karate and baseball, play counselor to my husband, and financial adviser to my stepson. It’s a busy life.
I went to a lecture by Max Brooks, author of Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z. That was fun. I love how he admits that his book is based on an actual survival guide. It amazes me how many people did not realize that. It’s a basic survival guide with a small twist. Zombies just makes it more interesting.
Madame Masque and Doctor Midnight – Steampunk Style
I went to C2E2 on Friday we were steam punk Madame Masque and Doctor Midnight, then Saturday I just grabbed my ren faire armor because it was easy and got to meet the one and only Julie Newmar. The poor woman was exhausted so I kept it brief and told her that I was a big fan of her rose garden and would love to see some more posted about that and after looking at her Facebook page it appears that she has.
