Aledans, I’ve been having such a damn good day that I almost forgot it was Update Thursday! I know I didn’t update last Thursday, but that’s because I was turning 30 and spending the week in Atlanta. It was a pretty darn good birthday: my parents surprised me by showing up at the hotel (with Baby Tiddley-Winks!), I ate veal brains and lamb fries for the first time (I LOVED the brains. I really enjoyed the other too, but not as much as the brains), we went to the David Byrne/St Vincent concert, we hiked Stone Mountain, got lots of free food and drinks because Decatur is amazing and I want to move there, and went to the Aquarium. It was a whirlwind three days 🙂
I spent another Saturday hanging out at the coffee shop with Adriana Ryan and Jocelyn Rish, and we actually did work this time! I’m happy to say the Kindra merger chapter is done, and now I’m cruising along in the second half of the final edit, slashing and burning any mention of Loria.
I’m also this much closer to finding out what the heck is going on with my heart. I spent the past two days hooked up to a heart monitor so they could get a clear picture of all the funky stuff it’s doing. I go in next Tuesday for an ultrasound, and I should have all the results and (hopefully) a diagnosis the following week. I may be more excited about this than the book (and rightfully so).
Plus, you know, PonyFest12 is still going strong for the next few days! You have until the end of the day Saturday to VOTE (really you have until Sunday morning when I wake up and look at the results, but I’d get your vote in Saturday night to be sure it’s counted).
I hope you have an excellent weekend, Aledans. Do something fun and relaxing 🙂
