School, Motorcycles and a Deadly Obsession...

Well, today was the first day of school, and quite frankly, I'm not ready for summer to be over. I know there are lots of parents who celebrate the ending of summer vacation and dance into another school year...but I'm not one of them. Quite frankly, I love summer vacation and wish we had another month of it.

Now it's not to say my kids don't get on my nerves and I do enjoy the brief quiet in the house, but other than that, I quite dislike school time. The driving back and forth, the arguments over homework and projects...struggling to make it to the school bus stop on time and the herculean acts to get them out of bed... yes, I dislike school. Did I mention endless lunches and early bedtimes.

I am starting to think my children and I are a lost horde of vampires who really want to stay up all night and sleep 'til noon. And I'd love for someone to tell me what the hell happened to school being from 9 to 3:30? My kids are out the door at 7:30 and home by 2:30...I'm certain the school system is royally screwed up.

But alas, another school year is here and I'm trying to embrace it...if we only survive the first week.

In other news, my brother took a spill on his motorcycle. Now I don't normally talk about such things, but the man broke two ribs, his collarbone and his scapula in three places... all this and he just finished racing in the Ironman in Penticton... I'm just glad he was wearing a helmet...nothing too serious, but lord knows he's not happy and won't be running anymore 'races' for a while... here's wishing you a speedy recovery, bro.

Finally, one piece of good news...

It seems Deadly Obsession is still hanging on to third spot in the Thriller category at All Romance ebooks. I'm tickled pink it's doing so well. In its first week it soared up to third place and became a best seller. I know it won't last forever, but it's sure great while it lasts.

Okay, time to hit the sack. It's late and the bus comes whether we're out there or not.

Romancing life...one adventure at a time.

  1. I'm so sorry about your brother. I'm hoping he heals soon.

    For what it's worth, I'm totally with you on the end of summer. I kinda want to cry.
