It's Almost Back-to-School Time

As much as I hate to admit it, this year I'm really looking forward to the kids heading back to school. I should say that I'm just concerned for their education and socialization, but really I'm looking forward to the peace and quiet. It'll be nice to write without having to filter out arguments, TV, and interruptions all day long. Not that I mind the occassional "there's nothing to do" or "he's looking at me", but there's a time and place for it...preferably not here, and not ever! In less than two weeks they'll be the teachers' problems. Yeah, public schools!!!

I'm actually really excited for my son, who starts high school this year. I loved high school...I just hope he likes it for different reasons than I did (namely friends, boys, and parties). He can have the friends. That's it.

In other (exciting) news, we got a sneak peak of the new website this week...AND I LOVE IT! I can't wait to get it online. I'm also (barely) learning to navigate the MySpace thing and have even gotten a couple of new friends online. PJ Hoover was my first friend request that wasn't one of my kids. We share the same agent AND she has her first book coming out this fall. How cool is that?

Anyway, time for a coffee refill, my brain is feeling muddled and slow this morning. Maybe it's just me.

Your website looks great! And so mysterious which seems perfect!

I'm still working on the content, but so far so good. Thanks for all your support! I'm looking forward to your book's release...I think my daughter and I will have a lot of fun reading it!
