Weekend Recap

It was quite the productive weekend. Saturday saw me typing madly away on my detailed synopsis. Perfect day for it, too, with lots of rain, cool breezes, and cloudy skies. And I finished the synopsis in record time, edited it a bit, then declared it finished and sent it and my partial through cyberspace for an agent to look at.

Strange - after I'd been working on it so intently all day, I felt sort of listless and rather lost knowing that it was done. In fact, I told my husband that I still wanted to work on editing the novel (it's halfway there) instead of relaxing and taking a break. But it was also 10 p.m. on a Saturday night, so I figured I really should take a break - and I popped in Casino Royale. Nothing like a bit of Bond to round out the day.

Sunday was a shopping day for my daughter and I. Since I've lost the weight, clothes from last summer don't fit - so I needed to buy a few new outfits for spring. Believe me, that's a great excuse to go shopping! I still want to lose another 30 pounds, but lately, I haven't been doing very well on the exercising. Illness has been the culprit most of the time, but I pray I can get back to it very soon - maybe even today! I wouldn't mind being a little skinnier when swimsuit season rolls around - even though I can't swim, hate the heat, and never lay on a beach. But hey, it's the thought that counts. ;-)


  1. I know that feeling of working hard and beings so focused and all of a sudden, you're done! Good for you to keep on working.

    Best of luck falling back into the exercise regime. You can do it!

    And I'm putting 'A Valley of Betrayal' on my tbr list! Thanks!

  2. Swimsuits are still good for spa days.

    I just got back to the yoga this morning, after being ill all last week. I feel as though I lost all my flexibility. Frustrating.

  3. Congrats on getting out that submission to the agent!

    Yeah, swimsuits -- the less said, the better. Hehe

  4. Way to go on the synopsis, Melissa! Woo-hoo! I had a productive weekend, too. I got half-way through another round of editing on my novel.

    Have a great week!

  5. Good luck with that submission!!! And I hear you on the exercise--if I don't watch out I'm going to have to buy a whole new wardrobe for the opposite reason!!

  6. Maybe you won't end up in a bikini on the beach--but you'll look like you'd fit right in. :)

    Fingers crossed for you on that query!

  7. Yay on finishing the synop! That's great! But I know what you mean about always feeling like you gotta work on it. I feel guilty when I don't work on something.

  8. That's awesome, Melissa! Yay! I have my fingers crossed too. :)

  9. Isn't it great, having to buy new outfits because all your others are too big? Congratulations on the weight lost so far, and good luck for the rest.

  10. Sounds like a great weekend! Congrats on finishing the detailed synopsis. I have to do one too and keep putting it off...

  11. Congrats on losing the weight, I think I took it all from you and added it to my ass lol


I love to hear from you!
