The winner of this week's giveaway is Laura. I know where to find you, so I'll get your book to you.
I finished an edit and sent it in, then the author sent it back after making changes. I need to take care of that soon. It's short, so it shouldn't take me too long to do. My family is visiting this weekend, though, so I doubt I'll get to it in the next few days. It's all good. I have all week next week.
I'm on chapter 5 of the middle grade book I'm working on. I've been pretty chill about writing this manuscript. It's pretty nice. It's for my boys, so I hope they like it when I'm done.
Earlier this week, the dog had to go to the vet for a staph infection on his chin. He has to take antibiotics three times a day for the next two weeks. As you can imagine, we've gotten into a routine of pill taking. Since he's picky about swallowing the pills, I wrap them in lunch meat. He swallows that whole.
The kids really enjoy lunch meat too, so every time I give the dog some, they boys need some too. (Kids and dogs, so easy to train.) This morning, the boys were sitting at the table eating their turkey, and the 3 year old asks for a drink.
"What do you want?" I ask.
"Ummm, I want...I want..." He hemmed and hawed for a little while.
His brother whispers to him, "Beer. You want a beer."
I looked at him. "You know better than that. If you can't decide what you want, I'm just going to get you water."
"Yeah, water. I want water."
As I'm walking to the fridge to get the water, the 5 year old says to the 3 year old, "Why don't you want beer? Because it makes you fat? You don't want to be fat?"
"No. Me don't want to be fat."
Hope you have a great weekend!
