This morning, I was feeling very lazy. So, instead of us heading out as a family to go grocery shopping, my husband went out alone. About 45 minutes ago, I got a call from him.
“Remember that part, Bob [our mechanic] said was gonna eventually break?”
“Yeah,” I said knowing where this was going already, but still hoping it wasn’t going that way.
Obviously, my husband is just fine. He told me it was quite scary when it happened (thank goodness I didn’t have to experience that). But, a broken down car wasn’t our biggest problem. See, that’s our only car. Bob’s business is a 5 or 7 mile jaunt from our house. And I mentioned grocery shopping. This happened after the shopping was done.
So, for the last hour I’ve been trying to get hold of local friends and digging up tow truck driver numbers. Thankfully, Paul Jessup (he’s a writer/my mentor) was home and able to help. We are so very thankful too! With luck, both my husband and him will be here in an hour’s time and the scary/hardest part of this will be over.
The rest of my week? Hasn’t been that eventful. Son got an A on his rubber band powered boat (after rebuilding it Monday night and making adjustments at school). My daughter caught up on all the comics she missed out on while grounded last month. We played Monopoly on Friday and watched THE SECRET OF KELLS on Saturday as a family. See? Boring!
Writing is going very well… (Now to the part most of you came to see. I’ll only be talking about the active goals.)

This Week’s Plan: By this time next week, I should be working on YELLOW draft 2. I’ll be querying and adding to my query list this week as well. My yoga instructor is having her wisdom teeth removed Tuesday, so no Wednesday class (will replace with running). Walk everywhere (thankfully, everywhere I need to be this week is within walking distance).
When was the last time being in a mood saved you?
If you could call any fictional character to come to your aid when your car broke down, who would it be?
