Tory’s Friday Ramblings

Hi there everyone! It’s FRIDAY! Yay! This is going to be the inaugural post for my Friday Ramblings. That way you’ll know to expect something like this each week. I’ll try to come up with a topic to actual ramble on. 🙂

Overall, this is a good thing, for a change. Yeah, hubby has to work late tonight and part of tomorrow, but I’m strangely glad for the weekend. I’m not normally, to be honest, but this week I am. It’s been a hard week emotionally.

Yes, I’m still waiting to hear on that submission. I swing wildly between “OMG, they haven’t rejected me yet, they’re gonna accept!” and “OMG they’re just dragging this out to torture me and I’m going to get a big, fat rejection any day now.”

Those of you who know me (through my Blogger blog and/or FB and/or Twitter) know I am a hard-core pantser. I can’t stand to plot. Buuuut I keep running into a block on my current WIP, Locked in Stone. So, I’m giving the infamous Snowflake Method a try. It’s probably easier right now than it would be if I’d started with a completely brand-new story idea, but it’s still pretty rough. I actually came up with my logline though, so that’s good. I’ve got my three disasters and I’m currently working on Step 3 with Rose and Cal.

The Shrimpettes are doing great. I’ve got my drama queen and my laid-back goof-ball. The Shrimp went back to school this week and has gotten 4 good notes in a row. After all of last year’s problems, I’m very pleased. It was even kind of cute last night when he told us he almost got a bad note, but the teacher decided to go easy on him because it was the first week (once again, he was talking too much). And for me, him telling us about that was an awesome moment. He didn’t have to mention it at all because he hadn’t gotten the bad note, but he wanted to tell the truth! YAY for honesty!

Work’s work. Blah blah blah. Corporate law isn’t exactly the most exciting branch. God, I miss doing personal injury at times.

Finally, if you could put my brother in your prayers, I’d appreciate it. He tried to do something extremely stupid this week. As in a permanent solution to a temporary problem. He’s currently undergoing psych evaluation and so hopefully they’ll get him some help. I’m offering him a place to live if he wants to take the offer, but with the expectations that he actually help out around the house, not just lie around and do nothing all day.  We shall see if he takes me up on it or not.

Anyway, enough ramblings for one day.  I’ll close this with a barrage of cute kid pictures just ’cause I can. 2013-08-22 18.21.51 2013-08-22 18.22.00 2013-08-22 18.55.57 2013-08-22 18.56.14
