Change is in the air...

Here in L.A. public schools are cutting summer vacation short as they're trying to align their schedule with the private and college school schedules.

Parents are shopping for back-to-school necessities. Kids are freaking about losing two weeks of summer and putting their noses back to the grindstone of homework and increasingly structured days.

I have no flesh and blood children. I only have furballs. So what's all the fuss about at my place?

Romeo: the serious one

Lola - aka, Bubbles
Change is in the air. I'm watering the lawn. Cleaning closets. Throwing out old files, magazines, things that no longer fit my life. I'm even painting closet doors. (I hate painting closet doors.) Check out my new miracle painter.

(I can't say I've done a room in less than an hour. But I am painting closet doors in record time?)

Why the change? Because it's time. And instead of waiting for change to happen to me, I've decided to be pro-active and initiate it.

Is it scary? Yes. Is it exhilarating? Yes. Am I nervous? Yes. I'll tell you more about the project as it progresses.

In the meantime I'm almost ready to birth the next book, Cupcakes, Pies, and Hot Guys. It will be  published late summer 2012. Here's part of the cover art.

So, hang on. Let's go for the ride.

  1. I need to paint our bedroom. The only room, other than the kitchen we haven't touched. I hate painting rooms. Closet doors, I like. I did all the inside doors in Nov. in a day. No edging involved. I suck at edges and cutting in.

    Curious to know about this change, cyber friend.

    1. Theresa - If you did all the inside doors in one day, you are my new hero. Do you have superpowers? If so, please find a way to market them to the rest of us who take forever to get things like this done. You could be the next Ron Popeil and become a zillionaire.

      I'll keep you updated on the changes. Thanks! xo,
