It's Tuesday, not Monday! 2 new releases & some other REALLY interesting stuff!

Middle School - Day 3.
The BOY was on time for the bus. It must be some small miracle. I'm hoping he had all his clothes on.

School is back in session. YAY!!!

It's great except for the 'get up at 6am' thing. Actually, its the 'hit the snooze button 17 times from 6am to 6:30am, then crawl out of bed to help get the BOY ready in 30 minutes to get him out the door' thing.

But, I've already started writing during his daily absence, so I'm very happy about that!

He hasn't brought any home yet, but the thought of this year's homework is making me a little nervous.


Happy Release Day to Murees Dupé! Best wishes and congratulations!

A few people have sent this picture to me on Facebook. I don't know why.



And finally, some funnies.

I think I've linked the video before, but it still cracks me up every single time.


  1. Thank you so much for helping me out:) You are amazing! Congratulations to Susan. She did a great job. I couldn't help but crack up at the zombie gnomes. You better keep them away from Stormy.

    1. It was my pleasure. I hope you had a great day!

      Zombie gnomes. Who'd have thought it. :)

  2. Congratulations to both authors. Murees rocks!
    Hopefully you don't have to kill your son or burn his homework. And if you do have to kill anyone, remember to use a scented trash bag - it will cover the smell.
    The gnome one is funny. You should do that to your front lawn!

    1. Alex!
      Yeah. I hope to implement the no-killin-rule.

      A front yard full of zombie gnomes would be fun. :)

    2. Thank you, Alex! You are amazing.

  3. I remember all the days of worrying over if the child would do what they should, if I could make myself do what I should, etc. Thankfully, my daughter has been super, ubber easy for years! She gets her own self up, makes her own lunch. Thank you, Lord!! She's a Junior this year.

  4. I don't miss the day of making sure the kids get up and out the door on time. Great for you getting the time to write. Zombie drones....

  5. Something is wrong with Safari on my Mac. I couldn't view the video and my computer is telling me I have to use google chrome now on a Mac. I hate being a computer dummy.

    Congratulations to Murees. She is such a lovely person and I'm over the top and doing a happy dance for her.

    I'm with you on celebrating back to school ... everything except the early morning screaming ... "Mom ... where's my --? Mom did you sign my ---? Mom, I can't find my --" Fill in the blanks. The questions happen every morning, but the content sometimes changes.

  6. I don't have a kid to get up, but I'm up that early for the day job. How do people function???????????
