I'm Back.....

So much to say so little time.
Oh my gosh, I need an exorcist, my head is still spinning. We finally got moved, though we were still driving back and forth with boxes at twelve thirty at night.We had to ask the movers to stop because it was pitch black, raining and the outside steps were slick. The hubby got so wet his feet were pruney;)
After the move, we put up a privacy fence for the hound and the outdoor cats. You're no doubt thinking cats could get out of a privacy fence and you're probably right. Because of this we added cat arms to the top of the fence. Every seen them? If any cat owners out there are interested, we ordered the extension from Here's what it looks like. We haven't let the cats out yet. Still cat proofing the yard.

While we were waiting on the cat extension to arrive the hh reinforced the bottom half of the screened in porch, figuring the hound would try to come through it. Unfortunately, he underestimated the mutt's tenacity. As you can see from the picture, he climbed over the reinforcement and broke through the top. Needless to say, he's crated until the hh gets the entire porch reinforced.

Before and after the move I was writing like a crazy woman, when I wasn't wringing my hands thinking it couldn't be done. I finally got the rewrite turned in--a few thousand words short of the original--and was ready to kick back and relax...right after I finished unloading boxes...when I got an email from my editor along with another edit. I've got back to backs coming out in August and September.  So while she's working on one set of edits, I'll be working on the other.

Got my award. Yay! Though, I'm not sure what box it's packed in.
 Last weekend we went to Williamsurg VA and hooked up with my daughter, her fiance and his family who are in from Minnesota. While there we celebrated the hh's birthday. What could be better than spending it with his baby girl?

We went to the Southern Christmas Show in Charlotte Saturday. Where you there? If not, you must have been the only person that wasn't. It was packed.
Whew. That's about it. So what's been going on while I've been gone? Please, catch me up.
