23 November PS&G

After today, I may have to change the title since both of the other ladies plan to mail their entries today. YAY!!

My dh is currently looking into a Fed-Ex location somewhere here in plaid-shirt heaven since, in my push to make deadline, I hit the hay at 7 a.m. and the phone started ringing at 7:25 (Son telling us about our rental car since his friend works for Enterprise.)

Promptly at 8, the phone rang again, the tow company. Fifteen minutes later, the rental car company (who was kind enough to inform me they didn't have pick up service at their location. So much for that ad campaign.) And it seemed to go on ever fifteen to twenty minutes until, at 10:30 I rolled out of the rack as surly as a hungry grizzly. (Trying to give direction to the towing service when you're half zonked and flat on you back is disconcerting to say the least.)

So, now I wait for our son who will take me to fetch the rental. I can't wait to see what other "bumps in the road" await me as I continue to push toward deadline.

It's been an adventure, that's for sure!

I am cheering you on!!! But icky on the phone calls and more!

Checking in with you!! Mine is off -- good bad and ugly. The first 50 and synopsis fared well, but the rest will require a lobotomy I am sure.

Meanwhile, my CP in VA wants me to take my category length MS to SINGLE TITLE.... can we say "Yikes?"

Wonderful news, Christine. I feel like a proud mama!!!

As for Category to ST, apparently your CP feels there is enough meat on that there bone to provide a bigger meal. Given the flap currently clogging the loops, if it's doable, if your premise will support the word count, I think she's right. You should give it a go. It may be time to "put on the big girl pants."

(And I don't mean that in anyway to denigrate cateogory length, but the line popped into my head from somewhere and made me laugh. I think I need sleep.)
