Happy Anniversary to Me!

OK, I'm a day late - but I was out celebrating last night. ;) November and December are really busy for us around here! We had lots of fun out at a new Indian restaraunt (I love going out for Indian food, 'cause I can't cook it!) and really just did a lot of deep breathing and catching our breath. It's been a hectic time!

But, I've got all but three presents wrapped - two because I can't find them (oops) and one because the intrepid two year old unwrapped it and handed it to me proudly - little scamp that she is!

Now, if I just get my Christmas cards out tomorrow, and buy that one last present, I'm all good. I can just sit back, drink my eggnog, and wish the baby would show up! It's really a daily battle between me and all manners of self-inducing. Just say no. Just say no. SO HARD!

Also, I got a particularly painful rejection yesterday - more painful because it said a lot that was encouraging, so I can't just say she doesn't know what she's talking about! HA! Also, I have a lot of respect for this agent. But, no matter, I've still got other lines in the water and I'll pick up the querying in earnest again after the new year. I'll also start working hard on Lamplight (working title) with a goal of finishing the first draft by Easter.

That all might be a bit ambitious with a newborn and more importantly with a two year old scamp, but I may as well aim high and then see what happens!

Off to bed blog buds - it's D-16 for anyone counting!

Hugs on the rejection, but congrats on the anniversary! I am not big on Indian food, although I did have a very good dish last time I was at an Indian place because it was not spicy AT ALL.

Yum! Indian food = Delish! And I'm so excited for baby news! Not too much longer! :) (I was 13 days late by the way... Mommy wasn't too happy!)

And I love the picture of Steve below! I want to see the movie yet again!
