Yesterday I gave my final draft of the book to my editor. It’s now hers for 3 weeks. I can’t exactly call it the final-final draft, because I’ll have to go through her notes and changes as she adds more descriptive phrases for me. But for all intents and purposes, the book is done in my mind. I’ve added chapters and paragraphs and sentences…to parts where I thought things were missing. I feel really fucking good about it. I even added the word: penis-cillan to it. My editor may go, “What the fuck?!”, but for now, it’s there. I was out with friends on Friday night and someone told a story of her fiancé telling her he could make her feel better with a shot of penis-cillan. All night, they kept telling me I needed to add that to my blog. So here it is… It does crack me up. Almost as much as the fact that he used the term while trying to get road head. Ah, kids in their late twenties and early thirties. LOL.
Life and the kids continue to keep us super busy-oh, and Brian’s job… Ryne started two a days for football today. I’m sure his ass is thoroughly kicked at this point. He started at 7 this morning. School starts for both of them next week, so Cal will return to swim team. Neither of them are happy about going back to school, but they are at least excited for their sports. I’m looking forward to watching Ryne play football, too. For me, it’s always the most fun sport to watch.
Well, lunch is over, so I should get back to work. Hope your day is treating you well.
Oh, and I’ve added the lyric video to Simple Kind of Life. I’ve always loved this song, and it would always make me sad when we were trying so long to get pregnant and couldn’t. But as the years pass, the song takes on new meaning. I watched this, as I was trying to figure out if the song title was right for a new chapter I wrote this weekend. As always, Gwen doesn’t disappoint. Even if you know the songs, take a listen again.
