Things Are About to Get Busier Here

I can't share the good news yet, because nothing's official. But let's just say the long, slow process toward publication has just taken a huge shot forward. More news on that in a couple of days.

On the homefront, I've made the oddest personal connection. On the AW Watercooler, a random conversation with another member led to a series of PM's (private messages), in which we discovered we both graduated the same high school. One year apart. How funny is that? 21,000 members, and we lived in the same town, same high school.

My best bud Serenity (who has a new blog: http://serenemoments.wordpress.com/ ) turned in her Master's thesis! Yay, Melissa!!! You go, girl! I'm so proud of her. Two years of online classes, stress and lack of "fun writing" has paid off. We celebrated on Monday by grilling turkey burgers, making onion dip, and watching five hours of "Oz" episodes. She's finally, officially hooked. My work there is done.

We have had a new store manager since April 30th, and things are working out well. We're finally hitting our stride as a management team, so things are looking up. Good thing, too, because I'm getting sick of Virginia. I'm ready to move back to the Eastern Shore, so who knows? Maybe by the end of the summer, I'll be posting from a new apartment closer to home.

More later...
