GRAVY

  • My first novel started with a mole. Yes, a MOLE - a freckle, a birthmark, whatever you want to call it.
  • I was at the pool with my daughter getting ignored by our swim instructor when a lifeguard with a particularly ripped abdomen walked by. He stopped to flirt with one of the female lifeguards and my eyes flew directly to an adorable mole on the top can of his six-pack.
  • "How cute!" I thought (among other things). "He looks like a character in a romance novel!"
  • So I went home and started writing fiction for the first time. That was over a year ago and I still haven't been able to stop. GRAVY is the story of a suburban housewife who wants another baby, but gets a man with a mole instead.
  • GRAVY is now available on Kindle and Nook!

answer: they don't. stay. home. I don't know why they even call it that. Some of the things I did today "staying home?" Attempted to scrub black sharpie (permanent) marker off my kitchen counters (Kendall's now writing a really good "m" tho,) and dug up the stuffed animal my dumbass dog burried in the yard (it didn't look THAT much like a real monkey, dumbass,) dishes, laundry, and let's not forget, soap operas and bon-bons...

AMEN. I bust my ass every freakin' day with cleaning and errands and pets and kids. Even with both kids in school, now I'm busy being *in* the school, plus all the house stuff, plus all the errands, etc. I'm pooped at the end of the day. You go girl!!!! That list rocks!

Life isnt fair!

I think I have found something worse than being a stay at home mom with a non-useful hubby. Working 40 hours a week and still having to do all of the stay at home mom stuff. And I have never wanted to be a stay at home mom - it is a hard job. And not one that I am up to. I like my career. I love that I work 3 nights a week - long hours but then I am off all week.

Does that mean that I should have to do all of the home chores too?

Oh, and when I got my current job, my husband told me that I should go and look for a part time job to make more money since (and I quote) "(I) am only working 3 days a week and you have so many days off." (Did I mention that I make twice what he makes a year? Hmm...the irony.....
