** Tidbits on a Tuesday Night **

Hey Everyone! I'm a happy mama tonight, because Scott is coming home tomorrow night!!  I heard about it from my daughter-in-law earlier today, and then he called me this evening. We talked for 19 whole minutes this time! Woo-hoo!
His plane is scheduled to arrive here at 6:15pm. I wanted to go to the airport, but will stay with Scotty instead. After he walks into his house, and I can hug him, I think I'll be able to breathe again......heavy sigh...

Have you noticed the "She Writes" button thingy on the right side of my blog? I haven't really gotten into it that much, being busy with all this blogging, you know, but they do have a lot of things going on that look well worth looking into. All you have to do is "join", but there is No Fee. It is nationwide. In fact, I was invited to a local get together this evening, celebrating the First Anniversary of She Writes. (I wasn't able to attend, but I hope to meet up with the local ladies sometime soon.) So, you can see it's a new organization, geared toward women writers. I'm particularly mentioning this tonight because they have a fantastic contest, beginning today and ending sometime in August. You do have to be a member, so jump on over there and sign up.The contest is called the Passion Project.  (*disclaimer: I'm not getting paid or anything for this. I just think it looks like a good place and great contest for us writer-gals!)

My last tidbit of the evening: One of my friends' husband was the lucky recipient of a colonoscopy yesterday. When I replied to her e-mail, stating that "everything went great".....my response was, "So glad the invasion of his private parts went well!! :)
Hey, I like to do all I can to spread cheer and laughter around the world. Maybe someone would like to use that as a title to their book or screenplay....You have my permission. Although, you could mention my name, too.

  1. So wonderful to hear that your Scotty is coming home and that you'll soon be able to hug him. You'll have to hug him for all of us, too! Thanks for sharing the She Writes link. Going to check that out now.

  2. Wonderful news, Becky! What a relief it will be to give him a big hug and kiss!


  3. I'm so glad to hear the good news that your son is coming home! Being able to see him again will take a huge weight off your shoulders.

  4. Glad you can soon put this scare behind you.

  5. Becky, terrific news about Scott. Don't squeeze the stuffing out of him or pop his stitches with that bear hug. I don't go back to work until the day after Labor Day, so we have all summer to get together.

  6. I think I heard that sigh all the way up here! So glad to see that Scott is coming home. :)

  7. Wonderful news - let him know how many people out there cared about him!


  8. Hi Becky, I am so happy to hear the good news about your boy being able to return as scheduled, safe and sound. Wonderful news!

    Thank you for the "She Writes" info, I'll check it out.

    Have a wonderful day!


  9. Hurray for healing! And homecomings!


  10. So glad about Scott! And I still think "The Invasion of the Private Parts" sounds like quite a horror movie!!!

  14. Becky, I know exactly what you mean about being able to breathe again. So glad all's right in your world now :-)

    (Loved "When You Are Engulfed in Flames." Sedaris cracks me up!)

  15. Hi Clara! Thanks so much!

    Hi K9Pat! Thanks! I wasn't able to give him a hug. It was more of a "lean into" his shoulders...you know..the non-hug of hugs!
