Will you look at that? It’s FRIDAY! SWEEEEEET Friday. As you can tell, I’m ready for the weekend. Been a crazy busy week (aren’t they always—LOL).

This weekend basketball season is finishing up for my daughter. She’s had an AWESOME season. Last game they beat one of the hardest teams in the league and she had 16 points and several steals. Also this week, my youngest had to get glasses (gets that from his dad—hehehe). And the three youngest all made honor roll at school (oh yeah).

On the writing front, all is quiet. Actually, next week I’ll be diving into my next two stories. One is a YA Fantasy, which I will call TP (I promise that’s NOT short for toilet paper—snickers) and the other is a YA Paranormal Romance (book 2 to My Dad’s a Paranormal Investigator). I’m VERY eager to get back to it. I haven’t written anything in FOREVER. My creative mind is bursting.

I finished reading Passion by Lauren Kate. It was pretty good. Liked seeing the different versions of Daniel/Luce through history. Can’t wait to read the last book. I’m actually reading my own book: My Dad’s a Paranormal Investigator: Seeking Shapeshifters right now to get myself back into the storyline/characters to write the 2nd one. It’s kind of strange reading the paperback (LOL).

Oh, and I ordered trading cards/bookmarks for The Fairy Godmother Files: Cinderella complex. I already got the trading cards in and they turned out really nice. I got the bookmarks designed and I think they’re so cute. So can’t wait to unleash them on the world (stay tuned because in the next couple of months I’ll be giving away some loot).

OMG, did you guys see The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle last night? TVD was AWESOME. I can’t really talk about it yet because some of my friends haven’t watched the episode yet and told me not to tell them what happened (hehehe). But I will say Mr. Damon Salvatore (Ian) looks mighty fine in a tux. I have to watch The Secret Circle tonight as I was designing bookmarks with my sister last night and had to DVR it. But the previews looked SO good.

Now, I’m in count down mode for The Hunger Games Movie. I’m SO VERY FREAKING EXCITED for it.

And I have to give a HUGE shout out to my crit partner Vanessa who landed herself a literary agent this last week! So proud of her!!!

I hope everyone has a GREAT WEEKEND! I plan to watch basketball, catch up on tv shows and just chill. Plus it’ll be snowy and I don’t want to go anywhere (hehehe).

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Yeah, I know, I’m a bit late (LOL). So here I am, back from vacation. And let me tell you, I had a GREAT time just hanging out at the house. I played video games, watched movies, did stuff with the kidlets. We went shopping a few times. I didn’t do anything writing related. But yeah, I think I needed that break, kind of let the mind rest. However, now that vacay’s over, I’m back at it. Work is crazy. We’re short staffed right now and it sounds like they don’t intend to hire anyone else on. So, what that means for me? Double work load (ahhh).

On the writing front, I’m waiting to hear back on some projects, not to mention, I’m still trying to decide what story I want to work on next. I have 3-4 possibilities, just not sure which is calling more at the moment.  Figure I’ll give myself til next week to start figuring it out (LOL).

And OMG, my football team (Detroit Lions) are in the playoffs (holy crap—squuuuuuuuueeeeee). This is their first appearance since 1999. Totally stoked. Unfortunately, our first round opponent is New Orleans (boo/hiss). LOL. Yeah, it’ll be a tough game, but I’m so excited. I SO SO SO hope they pull of the win. ROAR (that’s my lion impression).  And speaking of football, don’t want to forget about my boys at the University of Michigan, who won the Sugar Bowl (OH YEAH). Totally humming the fight song. Hehehehe.  Lots to cheer about.

Finally, I come to the portion about The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle  (spoiler alert).

ELENA AND DAMON FINALLY KISSED!!!!! That’s right, the moment I’ve been waiting for since the beginning. Hehehe. And I admit that I rewound the DVR a few times during that scene! Really loved all the twists last night. The fact that Stefan is back and town and being a bad ass is kinda cool (LOL). Although, I wonder where Katherine has run off to again. And I didn’t see the whole using compulsion on Jeremy thing coming (Damon/Elena sending him out of town). I liked the united front of Alaric, Damon, and Elena though. Of course, Klaus is still causing havoc and I’m trying to figure out what he’s going to do with Tyler. Lots going on. And I can’t wait to see what they do with Bonnie/the coffins. But yeah, my favorite moment last night was THE KISS. SIGH.

And wow, how about The Secret Circle? OMG, I was so excited for last night to see Cassie’s powers. I have to say Diana’s grandma is kind of a bitch (LOL).  I’m really not liking Faye’s mom and Diana’s dad either. Bunch of conniving peeps. It was good to see Adam showing some interest in Cassie again, even after she almost choked him. And I have to say, I hope Jake comes back. He’s one of those characters that you know is bad, but has some good intentions as well. Also looks like Faye is going to be wreaking some havoc again, will be interested to see what happens with her. I hope we get to see the kids find out about the master tools (like they do in the books) and maybe have Adam go look for them. I really liked that arc in the book. So yeah, so much to look forward to. It’d be awesome to see Adam and Cassie have a moment as well (LOL).

Well, hope everyone has an AWESOME WEEKEND! I’ll be doing a lot of traveling we have basketball for my daughter and my son is a part of a Honors Orchestra  and they have a big concert on Sunday. And of course, Saturday, the Lions are playing New Orleans (so can’t miss it).
