I've been pulling the cord on this bus called Life...

And it won't stop. Why it won't even slow down! (photo curtesy of NYTimes)
But as I look around at my fellow passengers, I see I'm not alone.
Yes, life has been busy for me.
I've been writing, getting rejected, writing more, doing more, visiting, hosting and traveling.
I need a break!
I need a clone to help me clean my house, too.
And don't get me started on the car situation! Four drivers, four directions, two cars. You do the math. It ain't computin', baby!
But in all honesty, I guess it's keeping me out of too much trouble. But for a gal who can't remember what she had for supper last night, it's a bit dodgy, too. If I'm expected to remember something, please forgive me if I don't.
Ever had a week or two like that?
I do remember something to end this ramble.
I've got some things at the Brenda Novak auction. You can find them at
Check them out and I hope the bus stops for you when you want it to.

Barbara, I totally understand. Things are a bit quiet around my house FOR THE MOMENT. But in the last year, we've had six surgeries, two graduations and a cross-country move. And the ruptured disc in my back was so bad earlier this year, that I finished writing the last half lying on my back.

But I just remember that God never gives us more than we can bare. And the fruits of this time have been wonderful--a deeper love for my husband, watching my girls become independent women. I may not have liked last year, but I love where life has me right now.

Yes Gog is always there to help us up even though we don't see him. We feel His touch and His guidance all throughout.
