Now Back to your Regularly Scheduled Laundry - AND A CONTEST!

How is it possible that you leave with a mid-sized suitcase for a family and return with a massive pile of laundry?

I did manage to get some good writing pages done. Mostly because I get up hours before anyone else so I can clickety clack on the ol' laptop before anyone needs/wants me for anything. I had hoped for wifi at the cottage. Had been promised that there was a somewhat finicky connection. Well, nothing. Nada. But, oh well, I survived. When I got back I had a huge scare because *gulp* the laptop I was using refused to start up! I had to bring it in for repairs and all I could think about while it was gone was whether I'd remember what I wrote. Luckily, whatever was broke got fixed by Mr. Computer Fixit who looked like he was all of twelve. Pages were saved - YAY!

My goal for this week is more pages (of course) but also getting the kidlets ready for back to school on Tuesday. I'm trying not to show too much enthusiasm but the kids sense my inner glee on this lol.

For all of you who read DEVIL MAY RIDE, I need to come up with five discussion questions for the Cherry Forums Book Discussion. So, of course, I'm having a contest he he. Email me or post your suggestions in the blog and you can win a book bundle surprise :)

Received one question from Donna D. via email. She said I could post it on the blog since she's unfamiliar with how blogger works :)

How did you come up with the story line of the little girl, Rhea, and her connection to Sadie?

I'm laughing! But in a purely I-can-feel-your-pain kinda way. That laundry pile is almost bigger than mine!
WTG getting up early. I'm a staying up really late type of girl. Whatever works, huh =)

I've yet to return home with all my washing as I'm still on holiday! Currently sitting on the edge of Ae forest in Scotland in the (hard to believe it) SUNSHINE!!! The girls (dogs) and I have just had a 4 1/2 mile walk in the trees while other half and a hired mountain bike did a good job of coating all his clothes in layers of thick mud so you can imagine what my washing will be like when I do get home!
Can't think of a question - brain is well and truly in holiday mode!
