Monday, Monday

The weekend was quick, but fun. I spent a few hours with writer friends on Saturday. That’s always a good time. Spending time with other writer’s always refuels my creativity.
After the writer’s meeting hubby and I went out for a nice dinner and a movie. Of course we seen Ironman 3…we were disappointed for different reasons. Halfway through the movie I kept checking my phone to see how much time had passed and when it might end. I remember thinking how am I going to tell hubby I wasn’t thrilled with the movie, but didn’t need to worry because it was the first thing out of his mouth as we left the theater.
Now mind you I don’t have an issue telling hubby exactly how I feel, but I’ve been really negative about a ton of stuff and I’m trying to change that. I’m being less bitchy if you will. LOL
I will say for me the best part of the movie was the banter between Tony and the little boy.
Enough of that…I’m sure others have different opinions and I respect that. This one is mine!
I’m currently working on round two of edits. I had to change the motivations of the heroine so it’s taking longer than usual for me, but that’s fine because in the end I’m super excited about this new book.
The story is about grief, martial issues, and the suspicion of infidelity. The heroine has to overcome some strong issues, but it makes her stronger in the end.
We also spent the weekend interviewing Nanny’s. Our daughter, who was babysitting two days a week, is in a difficult situation at the moment. They’re out of an apartment due to foreclosure. The bank offered her and the owners a nice sum to get out immediately…needless to say the money will help them, so they moved out yesterday. Our little one will miss playing with the kids, but hopefully they’ll find a new place soon and not be living in limbo. Thoughts and prayers would be greatly appreciated.
So there you have it my life in a nutshell…


  1. Tony usually comes up with some good banter!

    Good luck on your edits. Sounds like you have a lot going on in this story!

    And I'm glad your daughter got some money from the bank for her ordeal, but I hope she finds a new place soon! Lots of prayers.

  2. Wow, Amber. Never a dull moment. You know my prayers are with you and with your daughter and her family.
    Good luck with edits - sounds intense.
    I think I'll skip Iron Man 3. Tony Stark is great with the quips but you can't make a great movie out of quips. That was my complaint about The Avengers - a movie made of one-liners. The banter was entertaining, the movie boring.
