Sunday Update – March 26, 2023

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

As I suspected would be the case, it looks like there won't be any updates to the this blog in March except for Sunday Updates. Hell, I've barely updated my Facebook page, so I shouldn't be surprised. Between writing, editing, and handling my AI writing group, I am freaking SWAMPED every single day.

This week was busy with editing A Surprise Favor. I spent Monday and Tuesday going through the story and shortening long, superfluous passages that I didn't need, adding in story elements I did need, and prepping the whole book for line editing. Then I went straight into line and story editing which is where I am now. I'm past the halfway point, and I should be done early this coming week.

My non-Amazon people (I know it's not many of you), would you like me to put this book up for sale via Direct (with Bookfunnel fulfillment) first for two weeks before I put it up on Amazon in Kindle Unlimited? Let me know in the comments if this is something you'd be interested in.

My oldest daughter's 16th birthday was Wednesday! I can hardly believe she's 16. Where has the time gone? We celebrated on Monday night because very early Wednesday morning (around 3AM) she left for Disney World to march with the band and sing with the chorus! She returns later today. Lucky kid. I hope she had a great time.

We did normal things around here otherwise. I got my teeth cleaned on Thursday and my hair cut on Saturday. Then my youngest daughter got her teeth cleaned on Saturday too, and we went to Michael's together so she could get stuff for a school project. I walked a lot this week and avoided the park, which I think is what's making my previously broken leg hurt. The park is a lot of hills. There's a giant hill to get there and back and then there are hills in the park, too. So I either need to drive to the park OR I walk the flatter adjacent street in my neighborhood. I'm trying the flatter adjacent street for a while to see if that helps.

Not many photos this week…

Lulu says, “Paws off the hot dog! It's mine!!” and “Yo, I'm sleeping here.”

Spring started this week, and boy did our neighborhood feel it. Almost everything is starting to bloom. The forsythias are definitely yellow and many other flowers are open. I bet our cherry tree blooms this week, which is very early. We shall see. Usually, it blooms around spring break, which is in two weeks. Hello, climate change! We barely had a winter here, but I'm not complaining. Lol.

Have a great week everyone! Stay safe and healthy.
