Alicia came into our bedroom the middle of Thursday night with a raging fever, so she spent yesterday sick at home. She missed out on a birthday party which I had to hear about all day, and kept me home when I needed to get out and get some stuff done for the con I'm leaving for next week.
Today was more of the same, though her fever was gone. I had to go out to the oak furniture store and place the order for the cedar chest we want for our bedroom. It took a frickin' hour. If we didn't love the store so much and if their prices weren't so amazing, I would've walked. But I didn't.
And then tonight, the news about JM's play getting cancelled. Which means I'm not getting all my friends coming to see me this summer like I'd hoped. Or James onstage. And it's very depressing.
On the plus side, pepperlandgirl4 and I wrote some cowboy romance. We have a novella due for Amber Quill in September and since we knew it was going to be short, we decided to start it. Well...we might not make the novella requirements. We're capped at 40k. The scene we finished this evening is over 5.6k. And it's a flashback about how they first met, not even part of the main plot at all. I have a sneaky suspicion this one is going to be too long and we're going to have to come up with another idea for AQ. Not a problem, but annoying.
