Summer Rain

We had planned to head to the beach today, but it began to rain and the downpour said No Dice to all that. So now I'm stuck with two 8 year olds and three teen girls (plus my girlfriend, thank God, who'll help to shoulder the burden.)

So what the hell are we going to do today?

I have a feeling we'll end up at the mall. I think that shopping is fun, although sometimes it can be over the top

But with the rain and all there are other things that seem much more important. I'd really like to watch a Miyazake movie marathon, or read A Fine Balance (great book) or work on my own formats of my three books that have to go up on Amazon in July. 

I'm halfway through the first one, so you tell me if that schedule seems reasonable at all.

I seriously need a serious workout because with the teens and the kids there have been a lot of snacks floating around and one or two of them might have found their way into my mouth.

Plus I did dishes last night (twice) and again this morning and all of a sudden it's like, woah, crockery mountain at the sink. Please explain that if you can, housekeeping gods. So I suppose what I'm saying here is that, as usual, I could use some time to clean my house.

Plus, of course I have to blog and tweet and post to facebook and read emails, but that is an ongoing Sysyphusean task. 

Could also use a good pedicure, she said as she looked at the curved talons on the ends of her feet. 

However, I think we'll end up at the mall. Well played, three teen-aged girls, well played.

Rain in the summer always comes at the worst time. The good news is you have three teenage girls to hang out with your little girl!

Hey, Alison! =)
I have 16-year-old so I know what you mean about always having snacks around...but lately mine has started choosing to snack on stuff like grapes and apples rather than ice cream and cupcakes. =P Ugh...who raised him?! lol I guess I should be happy...I'll just have to join him in the healthy snacks...or get my own. ;o)

BTW, I have a Kreativ Blogger Award for you on my blog:
Hope you enjoy! =)

xoxox, Shannon <3

I just finished Night Watchman Express, but I can't find Devil's Kitchen. Can you please provide me with a link where I can buy a copy? I need to see what happens! Pretty please, and thank you so much,

Sorry about that! If you email me I can send you a paperback copy.

Or, if you prefer, all three books in the series will be going back up on Amazon this summer. Just waiting for the final edit now!
