To Recap

Sounds like you all were busy this weekend! I had a fair amount of down time and was able to get some more stuff hung up in the apartment. A few of my friends stopped by on Saturday to chat and one gave me a beautiful Victorian picture that she no longer wanted. It goes perfect with my living room decor! Thanks, Brenda!!!

My washer and dryer were delivered on Satuday and it is such a blessing to have them in my apartment. Prayer really works! I had prayed that I would be able to afford a good washer and dryer and God provided! :-)

The date with hubby went well on Saturday. We had a nice dinner - grilled salmon, yum! - and then went over to Barnes & Noble. Nice time.

And yesterday...ah...I got to write. I spent the majority of the evening working on my manuscript since my daughter was over at hubby's house painting her brother's room. I absolutely loved being able to immerse myself in my fictional world again. I also decided to print out my revisions just in case something happened to the laptop and I lost all that hard work. The new printer did great, until I jumped the gun and added paper at the wrong time, resulting in a big-time paper jam. After I took nearly the entire thing apart to get the paper out, it worked just fine.

Tonight I'm off to continue my work-out routine. I took last week off just to recover from the move and give myself some time to settle in. But now I'm ready to get more of this weight off!


  1. Sounds like you had a good time Melissa!! Good job :D

  2. Sounds like a great weekend. Yay on the writing!!!

  3. Things are coming together nicely!

  4. Okay, so your prayer for a washer & dryer worked, perhaps next time you could try for Christian Bale? And a multi-book deal with a six digit advance?

  5. Yay on the new washer/dryer and having such a nice date!

  6. Melissa - glad you were able to make your apartment more homey :-) AND got that W/D delivered and installed.

    I too print out revisions I make - am totally paranoid about losing stuff. Have had similar experiences with paper jams :-/

    Good for you for jumping right back into your gym routine!!

  7. I've always found moving is a workout in itself.

  8. Sounds like you're settling in nicely. Best part is that you're getting some time to yourself.

  9. I'm so happy for you! You're getting things done around the new place and getting your writing done. I'm glad to hear the date went well, too.

    Kelly is right, moving IS a work out. sheesh!

  10. Rene - I'll have to try the multi-book deal one next! ;-)

    Yeah, you gals are right - moving IS a workout. Did a lot of cardio and strength-training those few days! LOL

    Nienke - You're right - time to myself is such a good thing right now. I desperately need it to think things through.

  11. It sounds like you had a great weekend, and a fabulous date! I'm so happy for you!


I love to hear from you!
