11/7/11 - Movin' On Up!

Before going to bed last night, I sent my draft for the Reader's Digest competition to a few folk I trust. Some comments have come back. So far, rave reviews. Woohoo! I made a few edits to it this evening and will let it sit for a day or two. Deadline coming soon!

I'm thinking about moving into an RV very soon - instead of paying rent. My roommate is moving out December 31st. If I didn't have a commitment to my 3 lovely babies (pic below), it would be a no brainer. Wish I had a magic ball. Am I insane?!?

Tracking log below as promised. For a good laugh, read the 3rd one, 11/6, 11PM. What a trip this whole adventure is. Amazing!

11/6/11, 8:45PM - OMG! I am having such trouble writing. I am scared to death! My heart is pounding in my throat and I can take barely more than shallow breaths! I have never had this happen to me before. Get over it Debra! Just write for God's sake@!

11/6/11, 11PM - Was finally able to write and actually sent my ROUGH draft to a few very close friends and family member. Absolutely no housework, laundry, dishes, dog hikes, etc., got done today but I didn't go back to bed and I got this done. That's something, right?

11/6/11, 11:40PM - OMG! I just sent Glenn Morrissette an email!! What was I thinking? And just before going to bed on top of that! Now I'm not going to be able to sleep! Oh, while I'm at it, why don't I just go ahead and contact Nora Roberts too! Geez! Actually, I was blessed to meet her. Yep, walked right up to that book signing table, handed her a rose, then stood there like a mute and walked off like a moron. Hopefully this contact goes better than that one did! OMG!

11/7/11, 8:22PM - He wrote me back! He actually wrote me back! And he read my blog! I thought it was a shot in the dark. Ping! WINNing! LOL. And I did a lot of research on RVs today. Good day on moving forward. :) God, I want this so badly.  Patience Kimosabe. Patience.



  1. Keep on keepin' on! You are one of the most determined people I know and if anyone can do all this, you can. Love the blog. Keep it going!

  2. Sadly even going the RV route you will still end up paying rent as you have to park it somewhere. Unless you spend your nights in the walmart parking lot. :( LR.

  3. LSB - Love you! Am absolutely thrilled that you are my 2nd follower. That means the world to me! Thank you!

  4. LR - Sadly, to live my dream I have no problem living in the WM parking lots. LOL. Seriously. But a cooler head prevails today and I'm not rushing in to this. Going to do it right. Nonni is SO relieved. :)

  5. Feel free to add me to your preview list. I have always enjoyed your work.

    1. @ John - thanks! I truly appreciate that and am humbled by the compliment. :)
