Thursday Night Update

Don't forget my Give-Away ends tomorrow night at 8:00 pm, CST. If you haven't already left a comment on Monday's post, please go check it out.

 * It is now 8:15pm Friday night. I just did Random.org for my give-away, and the winner is........Clarissa Draper!! Congratulations! I'll e-mail you to get your mailing address. Thanks to all who entered!



This Saturday, the 11th, is my wedding anniversary. The Ronald and I will be celebrating 29 YEARS of wedded bliss! Where HAS the time gone? A story I wrote about our happy marriage was accepted and published in "Chicken Soup for the Soul; Love Stories" (2007). The title of it is "Through the Years."



This coming Sunday I plan on having another Nostalgic Sunday post. Last week I didn't get one ready because of the Super Bowl.
 


Two announcements concerning writing:

1) If anyone would like to receive a card or letter from me, just send your mailing address to me via e-mail. I'm having a wonderful time participating in the Month of Letters!

2) This afternoon, in just a short period of time, I wrote over 1,000 WORDS in my memoir! THAT is something to cheer about for me. I usually struggle with just a few words, so today was monumental. I hope I'll keep on going.....

* One last thing. I plan to begin replying to your comments by e-mail. That way it's not necessary to check back here to see what's been said. That should save a little time for all of us....and I think we're always looking for ways to do that! *

  8. Hi All! Today I'm starting my "new" way of responding to your lovely comments via e-mail.....if I have your e-mail address! I noticed I don't have The Elephant's Child, so Thank You for the congratulations. If you see this, please send me your e-mail address! Thank you!

  9. Well, Becky, you and I are both January babies, and we were both February brides. My 26th anniversary is next Wednesday. (If I had it to do over again, I would never have gotten married the day after Valentine's Day---I lost a holiday by doing so!)

    Anyhow, congratulations on your anniversary. Any special plans? We're going out to dinner.

    Congrats also on getting some writing down on your memoir. I have started writing a memoir kind of book, chronicling my long painful walk through infertility and broken adoptions. Some days I'm lucky to get 100 words written, so I know what an accomplishment 1,000 words is. Way to go!!

    Have a great day.

    Love,
    Patti
