Well, I got my story revision to Mike today. It's way too long, so we'll see how it goes.

Got a rejection from Family Circle. I'm going to hold onto the piece for a couple of months, since it's probably a little late for another round of submissions trying to get into the Feb 2004 issue (it's about my grandparents' valentines.)

I'm back at work. It looks like I may be going full-time in October, but I have mixed feelings about that. I mean, sure, I need the money, but I've gotten spoiled by working basically whatever hours I wanted and being home anywhere between 1:30 and 4:30pm. Oh, well. Good thing I like working there.

Cats have worms. Joy. Doctor "doesn't deworm prophylactically," so we have to try to segregate the cats and figure out who has them and who doesn't. Lovely. It's not a fun thing, since the big kitties don't get to sleep with us. We have several friends who don't let their cats in the bedroom, which I can understand. After all, if Shawn's up doing things and I'm trying to sleep with a T-shirt over my eyes, apparently our cats feel obliged to trod all over my head. Oh, and Max takes exfoliation to the point of flaying with that little sandpaper tongue of his. I was astonished to find that licking hurts!

Our friend, Nancy, has recently started up her own journal. (So, Kenny, do I get commissions, since this is the second person I've seduced to Journalscape? I'm still working on Roselle....) Her fiance has been encouraging her to get back into writing, and I told her about all the neat people I've met online here, and voila! She's decided to join our rag-tag bunch of whatevers.

PLUG: The Big Bear City Renaissance Faire is just over a week away!
That's right, August 9th and 10th, we're putting on our own faire up here in the mountains where it's cool and we have real trees and stuff! Directions and info are on the website. Last year's faire was astonishingly successful (especially for a first-year faire) and everyone I talked to said they'd be back for this one. (Check out the NC-17 stage line-up including a belly dancer, the Merry Wives of Windsor, and the Poxy Boggards!) I'll probably be the Woman With The Basket again (it hid my full toolkit, bottled water, and anything else I might possibly need on site) and a straw hat, if you're looking for me.

We've been having thundershowers. Yay!

I think that's it for now. Have a nice day.

A harvest of peace is produced from a seed of contentment.
