Check-In: Tuesday Edition

Damn. Only one week into Inept Cook and I missed my second go-round. BUT I have a good excuse, I had the Cold of Doom this weekend. In fact, I’m still fighting it. I had a fever on Sunday and part of today. I can’t even remember the last time I was sick enough to have an honest to God moving the temperature past 98.something fever. But, anyway, no Inept Cook because I was too sick to even look at food, let alone cook any of it. Sorry, chaps. Maybe this weekend.

In my personal life, the final countdown has begun for my friend’s wedding in which I will be a bridesmaid. Plane tickets purchased. Hotel booked. My dress is bought. My shoes are bought. In fact, there was a bit of a snafu with the dress so now I have two. Extra bridesmaid dress for me!

The store told me the original size was back-ordered so I said, “Hey, I’m short, give me a petite size.” They did AND they assured me my order for the original size hadn’t been placed. Wrong. I got the “back-ordered” dress only about a day after I got the second one I’d ordered. So now I have to go to one of the stores and return it. Yet another thing I didn’t get done this weekend when the Cold of Doom fell on me. Want to see the dress? You know you do:

Me likey.

In other news, now that “Beauty and the Bouncer” is steadily paddling its way through the slushpiles of several agents, I have turned my full authorial attention to The Next Book. Want to know more? Well, I’m not giving away the plot, but if you want to see what the inside of my head looks like at the moment then check out my Pinterest Inspiration Board for my WIP.

So far, this is my favorite image on the board:
