Pain in my future

The weekend is here. The husband is upstairs right now getting dressed, a simple act that’s going to launch a two-day stint that will kick my ass.

We have to finish the railroad tie wall this weekend, as well as the removal of a ton of dirt by hand. We have to get it done because we only have 9 days til winter parking ban, and we still have to have a layer of gravel brought in and then cement poured before we can put the MGs up there.

I also have edits to finish for Forever Again. Clearly somebody didn’t read my horoscope this month in which I was told that every word I write will be golden.


Bring on the Bengay and Applebee’s New England Mudslides. I’m going to need them.

    Don’t say that. ED is amazing, right? Don’t scare me.

    My mother had a favorite saying when I was a child, and she was usually wielding a fine-toothed comb when she said it…

    You have to suffer to be beautiful.

    ED’s the fine-toothed comb. Doesn’t mean she’s not amazing, just…fine-toothed. :kiss:

    I do consider myself very lucky, however, to have the privilege of working with two fine-toothed combs. Having an editor who says “Hey, looks like a good hat day to me” would suck. :nod:

    No kidding. A good editor is a prize.

    Speaking of prizes, I’m not entered to win any Godiva! Better fix that. :nod: Because I’ll need the chocolate when ED starts cracking the whip over my head…
