OK--finally I am done with my story Storm Warning for Harlequin Intrigue. It is printed out and I just have to get an envelope big enough and I can mail it away to the editors there. It made me laugh when I printed it out to realize this story was bigger than my Ph.D. thesis. OK--I didn't need to catch, rear or dissect fish to do this manuscript, I didn't tear my hair out half as much, but it did give me a nice solid comparison :) We really did used to compare size when we were writing up!!!
Another achievement that I neglected to cheer was DH's path alongside our house. He replaced the concrete because it was cracked and dug down and patched holes in the foundations. Unfortunately we still have a minor leak and need to patch everything from the inside too :(
A third achievement is our daughter's sunflower--can you see it? It is about 7 and a half feet tall and about to flower. Please admire the green trim around the French-doors that I painted this week :)
I am still coughing madly and looking forward to collapsing in a heap just as soon as possible. Here's hoping you all feel better than I do :)
