It's Gonna Get Wild...

So I'm officially on vacation now... which means that all bets are off as to what might happen around the blog... I've entered into a couple of contests over at Adventures in Children's Publishing and Market My Words, so I'm sure I'll be wigging over those... and I'll be checking my email every five minutes, I'm sure. Not just for agent responses either but for the first impressions from my beta readers on AGMG. You should check out the contest over at Market My Words. There's still time for you to enter! And it's great practice.

I also intend to do a load of writing, now that my finger is finally back in service and I've got the time. I can't wait to sip coffee on the screened porch while the word wakes up!!! Oh, and come Friday of next week and I'll be renting a baby for the day to go hang with my grandma. Seriously, I'm kidnapping my niece Walelu. The only catch is that Fenris wanted me to reimburse her for the lost day of child care. So essentially, it's rent-a-baby. Whatever. I'm getting the kid, and that's all that matters! Moohoohaha!

And to start off the vacation, we'll be heading to Potomac Mills tomorrow to spend a day puttering through a bazillion stores and buying very little, which ought to be ridiculously fun, and I don't even like crowded places. I'm gong to try and get blog posts up but who knows where I'll be and what I'll be up to... so if I drop off the face of the earth... you've been warned...

I'll leave you with a picture of Walelu, taken just a week or two ago. I can't believe how quickly she's growing!

Oh, and for the record - in case you notice them - those are NOT my cigarettes on the chair arm. They belong to a coworker and I didn't realize they were there until I posted the picture and then I couldn't get it to crop them out.
