Hi Kids

Cie here:

I HATE TRANSITION SCENES!

I am sitting down at work checking my e-mails because I am assiduously avoiding a transition scene. I absolutely know where the action goes next, but I have to GET there. ARGH!

Got rid of some of the hostility by cleaning house yesterday. I've also been baking. Generally speaking I have this interior "Threshhold" that if things get too chaotic or dirty beyond it I go nutsola. I don't like that about myself, but it's the truth. So yesterday I got things back to my comfort level. I hope they'll stay that way, but I'm betting they won't. My cats and my son have a very different comfort level. They LIKE messy -- or at least messier than I like it.

Went to Y's blog and wound up getting tagged.

What were you doing ten years ago?

Working my ass off doing between two and four jobs. (Yeah, that's right, I said FOUR. (1) Full time legal secretary at the law school; (2) part time legal secretary for a criminal defense attorney; (3) house-sitting; (4) part time typing for bail bondsmen. (I was also raising my son and TRYING to write my books).

What was I doing 1 year ago?

Working full time at the law office here in Texas, working part-time writing books and doing all of the miscellany that goes with it. (Signings, conferences, etc.) Helping my son get back on his feet.

5 Snacks I enjoy:
Pepsi
Milk Chocolate
Plain potato chips
My home made jerky
My brownies or chocolate chip cookies

5 songs you know all the lyrics to:

OK, there are too many of these to mention. Once upon a time (in a galaxy far, far away) I had a photographic memory and an excellent audio memory. (These went away after a particularly nasty little head injury when I was 18 or 19) Because of this all of the pre-injury stuff is filed away, including all of the Old-School country music stuff my parents loved and I hated desperately.

5 things you'll do when you're a millionaire (thinking positive):)

1. Pay off all my old debt, including the house and the vehicle.
2. Give to charity.
3. Set up trust funds for my son and my aging parents.
4. Re-fund my retirement 401K
5. Switch to writing full time.
(Wow, don't I just look like the party girl!)

5 bad habits:

Biting my nails.
Not getting enough rest or taking good enough care of my body.
Eating and drinking too much sugar.
Pushing myself too hard to accomplish more than is actually physically possible.
Procrastinating about things that I feel helpless over.

5 things you like doing:

WRITING.
Reading.
Singing with my son.
Playing computer games.
Seeing my books on the shelves in the bookstores. (Yes, I AM a closet egomaniac!)

5 things you would never buy or wear again:

BIG hair.
Spandex. (Other than a swimsuit -- or maybe not. I really don't like to swim either)
(IF I CAN HELP IT) High heels and pantyhose
Midriff tops.

5 favorite toys:

MY COMPUTER
My CD Player and stereo.
My truck.
My Zen garden
My art supplies.

5 people you would give this to.

ANYBODY WHO HAS THE TIME AND WANTS TO.

He, he -- THANKS for taking part in the tag, Cie! I enjoyed reading your answers... and I know what you mean about the comfort level!

There were several 'home cleaning' duties I wanted to attend to last week, which I didn't because I'm using every bit of available time to do some revisions... need to catch up THIS week...
