Greetings from sunny Virginia! Wish you were here! I know it seems as if I’ve dropped off the face of the earth the past few weeks, but there has been much going on in this corner of the world…
—As far as I know, Jay will be home in less than 24 hours! I won’t quite believe it until he is actually on the ground in Norfolk, but it looks as if this crazy long deployment is finally over!
—Patrick is five months old! He is rolling over! He is babbling and squealing! He is starting college in the fall! (Okay, it only feels like that…)
—The deadline for Dream Lover is two months away! Have you started writing your story yet??
—Because of the devastating flooding in Nashville, the RWA conference has been relocated to Orlando. I’m still trying to decide whether I’ll be making the trek to my home state (in July) for the conference. Let me know if you’ll be in attendance!
—My sweet Wilbur kitty died on Mother’s Day. He was 20 years old and had been sick for a long time, but it’s still hard to believe he’s gone. His brother from the same litter Orville died 7 years ago and I still miss him. Annabelle has only been gone since last January and I swear I still see her.
—I turned 43 last week. How did that happen? I had a terrific birthday weekend of yummy cocktails, much laughter and a John Hiatt concert. (I still have his autograph on my body!)
—I celebrated my first Mother’s Day over the weekend, too. Pizza with friends and lots of baby smiles. It was almost perfect.
—The coming year is going to be fabulous. I can just feel it.
