A few of you have asked (mostly on Twitter) about my triathlon. I'll post pics as soon as my little sister (and cheerleader) sends them my way. But for now, I will say I survived (obviously!) and I'm really happy I did it. My time was average, but my fun-factor was excellent. Too bad they don't measure the fun-factor. I think I would have won!
Last night was boys' night out at our home (laser tag, fast food, and Ice Age), so I was left to my own devices. I did a little writing on a new project not related to the HUSH, HUSH series, bought some adorable Betsy Johnson frog earrings, started season six of GILMORE GIRLS, and did some Internet reading. I came across a couple interesting and writing-related things, and thought I'd share.
First, if you are a mother and a writer and constantly asking yourself, "How will I ever be able to do this?" I'd really recommend you check this out. I'd loved these women's books when I was younger, and I love their advice now that I'm older.
And Janet Reid on A New Rule for Authors: Be Positive. Chin up!
Finally, these are the frog earrings!! Are they not the cutest? I pierced my ears for the first time eight weeks ago, and I'm having a little too much fun accessorizing my ears. So far I have lady bugs, giraffes, and now frogs. Just what I would have bought had a pierced my ears at eight, like every other girl in the world.
