My apologies for the blogging drought! I’ve been working frantically, trying to get the latest book finished. But barring a computer meltdown, the end is near, so hopefully I’ll be back posting soon.
Until then, here’s a brief update on me:
1. The new season of Amazing Race is on! Who are you rooting for? I’m firmly on team Margie and Luke. Also, I’m still reeling over the fact that Hosea somehow managed to defeat Stefan on Top Chef. Just how much of the product placement wine were the judges glugging down?
2. My younger pug, Zoe, is on a diet (mostly because she’s due for her yearly check-up, and I want to avoid a lecture from my vet).
Zoe on a diet is not pleasant to live with. She’s constantly on the prowl for food, and I’m starting to wonder if she’s half-goat. Last week, she actually learned out to climb up the pantry shelves. She pulled down a bag of unopened potato chips, which she proceeded to open – impressive considering her lack of thumbs – and consume.
Yesterday, Sam and I returned home to find the picture frame he’d made me for Valentine’s Day missing. He’d painted it red and glued conversation hearts all over it, and it was the best present I’ve ever received. We looked all over the house for it . . . and found the remains of it under my desk. Zoe had knocked it off the table, and chewed off every last candy heart. Sam and I both wept a little, but he finally patted my arm, and told me that it would be okay, because he’d make me another one.
3. Speaking of Sam: he has confused the words wonky and Wookiee (i.e., Chewbacca of Star Wars fame). Whenever the sheets on his bed get twisted up, he’ll come out and announce, “My sheets are Wookiee. You must come fix them.” George and I find this hilarious, and hope that he never stops. I still haven’t fully forgiven his pre-school teacher for telling him that the letter W is not pronounced “bubble-two.”
