I'm BaaaaaACK

And a bright beautiful Monday morning to all of you. Well, not exactly here since it's raining, but hey, maybe it's not raining where you are. I want to apologize again for my hiatus. I try not to take them very often but sometimes these things are necessary. Anyway, I figured I'd give you a rundown of things done while I was off, so here goes:

Number of doctor visits - 2
Number of prescriptions - 5
Number of days running a fever - Every day for the last two weeks, finally ending on Saturday
Number of nights sleeing upright on couch so I could breathe - still doing that one
Number of pages written while temperature was over 100 - 56
Number of pages edited while temperature was over 100 - 310 Twice!
Number of times I've asked if anyone was cold/hot - too numerous to count
Amount spent on cough drops and coffee - somewhere just short of the national debt
Getting UNLUCKY out to my agent sometime today - PRICELESS!

Yes, you read correctly - UNLUCKY will go out to my fabulous agent, Kristin Nelson, today! So far, my cp's have agreed that the book is fab even though written during a fever-induced haze. Thank God for small miracles!

Movie reviews will come this week - I've fallen behind on them.

And is anyone else po'd that Sundance Head is off of American Idol and that silly kid that can't sing a lick is still there? Obviously America is deaf. I hope they don't go blind, too, or it might be a problem for the publishing industry.

Until tomorrow - have a great Monday!

Welcome back, Jana! Sooo glad you're feeling better. Also, sooo glad Lucky is making its way to Kristin. I can't WAIT for this book!!

Welcome back! I'm glad you're feeling better. I got slam-dunked by the flu or some nasty viral thing this past week, so I can totally sympathize. *hugs*

Congrats on your (almost) renewed health and getting the book to your agent!

Thanks, Wendy - it's great to be back! And I can't wait for you to read UNLUCKY either. Of course, I could probably arrange for an advance reading. :)

Tori - hugs on the flu/something viral - everything nasty seems to be making the rounds. It really blows and I mean that figuratively and literally. Hope you feel better soon.

Thanks, Jaye - I think I felt a lot better just sending the book out, especially once the cp's let me know it wasn't total crap written in a fever-induced haze.
