SOOOOOOO many things have been making me happy lately. They're little things and a couple of huge ones.
Like for example . . . I FINISHED ANOTHER MANUSCRIPT.
And it was way too long and even the edits, which I normally loathe, have been going pretty well. I have to cut at least 13,000 words out and I've already knocked out 9,000. Yes!
And there's other good book news. For various reasons that turned out to be utterly stupid, I thought my Not My Type wasn't doing so hot. As it happens, I'm crazy. It's selling really well. Better than The List, even. And do you know what that means? DO YOU?
It means I GET TO KEEP WRITING! And that is what I want the very mostest. After happiness for my family and world peace.
Here's other stuff that's making me happy. See this apron?
I bought it. I bought two, actually. Because I believe in great causes and good deals. See, Sarah's little boy was recently diagnosed with Type I diabetes. And their family is in the incredibly tough position of not making enough money to be able to pay for his insulin but making just a little too much to qualify for any of the programs that would help subsidize it. The shortfall is $500. A MONTH. So instead of despairing, Sarah got right to work sewing and selling aprons. She just barely opened an Etsy shop that you can check out here or here. And since I've spent time pricing aprons on Etsy in the past, I can tell you that the $30 she charges is a great price. Plus, you can tell her what you want and she'll make it for you.
So go. You know you have an in-law or girlfriend, or co-worker who would love one of these for Christmas!
Here's a couple of more things that are making me happy. I bet you didn't know that I've been on the hunt for the perfect nude lipstick and gloss. I FOUND THEM!
Loreal Color Riche in Fairest Nude (I know, it's getting all PG-13 up in here)
