Hey, Nicki!
Happy 8th WDC Birthday!!!

Happy Birthday!! *Cake2**GiftR*

Have you seen this? "Note: In Celebration of WDC's Big 15th Bir..." ? It said to tell a friend and I thought of you! *Heart*
And why are you on Cloud 9 my dearest friend???
Had a fender-bender this afternoon. My fault. Got a ticket. Bummed about the whole ordeal. On the bright side, hubby popped out the dent in about 10 seconds flat. He's awesome like that.
Uh oh! Glad you're okay *Smile*
Nicki, I'm glad you're okay and that it wasn't worse. Don't beat yourself up too much, accidents happen.
Thanks you guys! I'm not letting myself worry a minute more about it. Even though I don't know how much the ticket or insurance claims will cost...not thinking about it!! *Bigsmile* Hope all's well with you guys!! *Heart*
Hey Nicki! I wanted to drop you a line to let you in on some big news in my life. *Bigsmile* After getting moved and some what settled into the new house my hubby and I have done a lot of soul searching, and no little amt of number crunching *Worry*, and I've decided to take a stab at staying home to be a full-time writer! I'm telling you it is one of the most exciting and frightening decisons I've ever made! Friday will be my last day at the 9-5 and then I'm going to put new pretty new home office to work. *Wink* Wish me luck! *Shamrock*
Oh Mara!!! That's the most exciting news ever! I can't imagine how you're feeling right now. First there's the prospect of NOT doing the 9-5 gig anymore. That's huge, in itself! But add to that the opportunity to write full-time? Wow!!!!!!!! I'm doing cartwheels for you, honey. I know you are too. God, I'm so out of the loop around here. I feel terrible! I didn't know you guys were moving. Did you move far or just into a bigger/smaller house? Either way, it's a major undertaking to pack up everything and then unpack on the other side. Haven't done that in about 7 years but I still remember it like it was yesterday. (It's SO good to talk to you!! And writing my thoughts like this, just letting the words flow, GAH! Haven't done this in a while. Everything I write is so calculated these days. Business blog posts, website content, press releases...such a different writing beast. I miss the creative outlet of writing fiction. And I keep saying I'm going to write something new, but then my days blur together with work I bring home because there isn't enough time in my part-time schedule for my full-time workload, kids who are home from school and alone all day while I'm at work, who want "Mom-time" when I'm there, and the housework that piles up now that I'm not a full-time stay-at-homer. But I love what I'm doing right now and the intellectual stimulation is wonderful. I'm starting to remember that I was a smart person before years of the-wheels-on-the-bus-go-round-and-round dumbed-down my brain. Ha! What am I talking about??? My kids are in high school -- can't blame my lack of brainpower on the kids anymore! *Laugh* Oh what the hell, it's their fault!! Anyhow, I needed this! Thanks for telling me your special news. It means the world that even though I've receded into the quieter corners of WDC that I haven't been forgotten by my best peeps. You made my day, especially as I continue to think about you as a full-time writer and share in your celebration of all that will come of that. Let your creativity flow, sweetie! So happy for you!!!! *Heart*
This week I wrote a WDC newsletter, a bio for my professional portfolio, a press release, a blog post for my company website, and a thank you letter to follow up a job interview. How much fiction did I write? None *Sad*. Maybe I'll write a poem today. It's my day off and all I have to do is clean the house, do massive amounts of laundry, edit 20 or so photos of a recent work event, and pack up the suitcases for our 4 pm departure for a weekend of scuba diving in Vortex Springs, FL. *sigh* Maybe I'll write the poem in the car...
OMG Asymetrical, that is a brilliant thought!!! Haha, love it!
Aw thanks, Mara! So much wisdom in your comment. *Heart* Have a great weekend!
I find just emptying my e-mail can take all day! *Laugh* Have a great time doing what you love. (The scuba diving - not the cleaning/laundry)
Have a fantastic weekend. *Heart*
