Just Random Stuff

Note: My sincere apologies everyone. I scheduled this to post this morning and it DIDN'T. Oops. So here it is, better late than never I guess.

I'm posting random stuff today for a variety of reasons. Mainly...there are times when the brain simply isn't quite functioning on all cylanders because of overload. Yep. Definitely suffering from that. So I'll apologize in advance for my lack of wit and cleverness.

For roughly a week I've been buried in my cave trying to finish a book before I head off to EC Wonderland (or more commonly known as Elloras Cave Romanticon). It has been a tough job finishing this primarily because I'm angry. Yes, I'm angry with myself for procrastinating (my numero uno big time fault) and now I'm kinda under the gun here. Again, my own dang fault. The good thing is that I'm only about 5K away from typing the end on this hot little story. Actually I'm really liking this one and really hope my readers to do.

Another bit of randomness is that Mr. Regina and I are buying a lake house. He has wanted a great fishing spot for many years and recently we've come to the conclusion (now that our kids are grown) that life is too damn short. It's time for us to do something new, have an exciting adventure so we are closing on a spectacular place on October 14. The view over Lake Amistad from our big deck is incredible and we're looking forward to having lots of great times there and who knows? Maybe at some point in the future our kids will come with spouses and grandchildren. Not too soon, I hope, but one day. I suspect we will make a gazillion memories in this beautiful spot on the planet.

Yet more randomness coming....sometimes we must plan for the unexpected and that is just what has happened. I'm writing this post on Monday evening because we must take an unplanned trip out of town first thing in the morning. Sooooo. I'm up with the chickens and heading to Dallas with Mr. Reg. It will no doubt be a very long day. He will, as he always does, thrust the damn directions at me and then tell me my directions are WHACK as I read them. If it gets too bad, you'll see him hitchhiking home.I'm taking a stand here. He will navigate himself and if we get lost AGAIN, it's not my fault. :-)

All comments today on my burst of randomness are quite welcome. Suspect I'll be home tomorrow (Tuesday) evening and will answer all comments. Love Love.

Congrats on the lake house. It sounds dreamy. Good luck on finishing the story.
I'll miss you and everyone at RomantiCon this year. :(

Embrace your randomness. I believe it is the random nature of a writer's mind that allows them to keep pumping out new stories. If we didn't have jumpy brains we wouldn't need to write down those ideas to kick them out of our heads.

Here's to random thought waves! Cheers!!
