I love my husband. That’s probably a good thing since we’ve been married a really long time. Yesterday he gave me one of my Christmas presents early. A gift package of massages. I couldn’t turn my head to the left, or right for that matter, and he handed me the envelope. Then he was quite forceful (I love it when he’s that way) and ordered me to go get a massage immediately. So for once, I actually did and it was amazing. I’m a whole new woman today. Oh, the beautiful Elsie Hogarth sent me a personalized, hand-stitched bookmark, and it’s a gift I’ll never forget. Elise is part of a wonderful book group, and she loved “C&D.” She lives in N.J. and I swear I’m going to make it up there some day.
The copy edits have come for “Charmed & Ready.” I’m a bit afraid to take a glance, but we’ll see what happens. I also received a box full of Golden Heart entries (That’s a writing contest for romance writers) that need to be judged. Didn’t look at those either. Did finish up my columns for the week and now I’m working on my “special project.” I keep waking up at 3 a.m. and have a tough time getting back to sleep. I think it might have something to do with the fact it’s three days to Christmas and I don’t have all my shopping done. It has nothing to with procrastination and everything to do with the fact I’ve been working a lot of 18 hour days the last month. But it will all get done. I think I only have three more presents and some cash to dole out, and I can call it day. Just in case I don’t make it back here till Monday, The happiest of holidays for all of you. Thank you for being so supportive of me and “Charmed & Dangerous.” My old friends and new, have made this one of the greatest years of my life. I love and adore you all!
