  1. Bit of a freak out this morning when I woke at 6:00 and realized Baby J hadn’t woken me up during the night! A rush to where he was sleeping and there he was, still sound asleep. Now wondering if him sleeping through the night was a one time thing or if I can look forward to more mornings of waking in a panic, lol

    Guess the Author???

    A thought I had, for kind of a fun blog feature, plus another chance for authors to get themselves out there.... What about doing a "Guess Who" blog feature? Authors would answer a few interview questions, but with some guidelines, and the community would try to guess who it is... Then in the weekly wrap up, we'd reveal the author, along with a link to up to two stories on GA that the author would like to promote? If there's any interest, I'll start putting it together and then open it to sign ups A sample question might be: What prompted you to write your first story? (With this question, you wouldn't be able to give the story name)

    Guess the Author???

    We've had 7 sign ups, so far!!!! Who's next? Just PM me
  6. New "Author Feature" for the blog!!!! Check out the sign up information here:

    Guess the Author???

    Author questions are complete! I have three authors signed up already, who's next? If you'd like to sign up, please PM me and I'll send you the list of questions. Authors will be posted in the order in which I receive their completed questions. Thank you!!!!

    Guess the Author???

    Looks like there is enough interest, so I just need to come up with the questions and guidelines. If you'd like to sign up to have a Guess Who feature, PM me, and I'll PM you the list of questions as soon as I'm finished coming up with them. Should only take me a day or two! Then once I get enough backlog, I'll start posting whenever I have an open blog.
  9. Renee Stevens

    Guess the Author???

    Well, I never said authors can't guess on their own blog posts to try and throw the community members off their trail
  10. Renee Stevens

    Guess the Author???

    I could maybe make a Guess Who Winner signature banner for those who guess correctly.... or for the author if they evade being guessed....
  11. Renee Stevens

    Guess the Author???

    And if anyone has ideas for the questions, simply PM me!
  12. Baby J is 3 months old today!!! How did that happen?! Time is going way too fast!

      @Kitt Mine is outgrowing the cradle and will have to be moved to his crib in his own room :(

      Is he sleeping through the night yet?

    4. Renee Stevens

      Renee Stevens

      @Kitt Not yet. But he's generally sleeping about 5 hours in a row.

  13. Winter is apparently here... An inch of the white stuff on the lawn (and it's still coming down), and part of I-80 is closed. Ugh. i hate knowing Hubby is out on these roads!

      We're getting snow again today, but it's light. Remember, D is familiar with driving in inclement weather, and his company will make sure conditions are safe before they put him on the road, or they will take him off the road. Don't worry too much.

      Meanwhile in Canada, where you would expect it to be cold. I've been sitting with a fan on me for most of the afternoon.

      Just keeping him in my thoughts. You know he is always careful and has even more reason to be now. If you need an ear, call me.

  14. Changing meds, to something I’ve never had before, always makes me nervous.

      Hang in there, kiddo. Remember to talk with your doc. If it isn't something you're comfortable with there are options.

  15. That moment when you sit down to look at what needs done for this years light show only to find hundreds of hours of sequence work gone....*poof* and you go to get your backup copies, and *poof* they're not there either. I think I'm gonna cry....

      @Kitt I can’t find it. I suspect it got eaten by a pup.

      Ah!  And of course they really digest what they read.  I lost a book or two to that particular phenomena

  17. Over 50,000 acres burned, only 35% contained, and over 50 homes/ranches lost. Over 1,000 firefighters fighting the blaze.  This is not far from one of our favorite camp areas which burned just a few years ago:

      I heard about this on the news. Wildfires have their own objectives, regardless of who's in the way. Very unfortunate when people lose their homes. I've seen it a lot here.  you're not near this fire, are you? 

    2. Renee Stevens

      Renee Stevens

      @MacGreg No, Sir. It's about two and a half hours away from me, maybe a bit more. From what I've heard, this fire has gotten national attention, and is one of the top, if not the top, fires in the nation. The Type 1 management team has pretty much been promised whatever they need to fight it.

      Don't get me wrong, love him to pieces, and so happy to have him, I'm just sooooo tired, and yet jittery from coffee.

      you're an excellent auntie, but twice to Utah? That's a lot. I hope she found the perfect dress. And I hope baby J settles down some so you can rest. 

    4. Renee Stevens

      Renee Stevens

      Thank you @MacGreg Sir. We found her a dress, though it wasn't the one she really loved (they didn't have her size in that one). Got a little more rest last night, though Baby J is fussy off and on today.

  19. Need to plan a special late lunch/early dinner for tomorrow. Hubby has to make a surprise trip back here and will be flying in, then be home with me and Baby J for about 10 hours before leaving again.

      That’s my kind of surprise, Renee. Enjoy your time with hubby and baby J. 

  20. Two weeks of just me and Baby J.... Guess I'll take the two weeks and do my best to get some stuff done around the house (which means I have to brave the basement in order to do laundry).

      It doesn’t bode well that as soon as i stopped and sat down for more than a few minutes, i had an anxiety attack.  i just need to try and keep reminding myself that it’s just anxiety and i will be fine...

    3. MacGreg

      MacGreg

      It is just anxiety. And anxiety can be managed. you are far stronger than a spider. Be brave, girl. Get your tasks done.

    4. Renee Stevens

      Renee Stevens

      Thank You @MacGreg Sir. i keep reminding myself of that. He is expecting me to keep things together while He is gone, and on top of that, Baby J is counting on me.

  21. Just hours away from getting a full week with the Hubby before they send him to North Dakota for two weeks...again.

      Hi Renee. Hope its a great week with you, Hubby, and Baby J!

    2. Renee Stevens

      Renee Stevens

      @BHopper2 Thanks hon, it should be. We're going to the fair in Utah one day, and then going up to the mountains for a day this weekend. Will be nice to get away from everything, especially as we have a visitor coming on Friday that i really would rather just stay away.

      @MacGreg i’m okay, Sir, my doctor just thinks my daily issues are due to anxiety attacks.

      Take it easy, let the doctors do what needs to be done and rest assured you will come away feeling better than you have been. you'll be fine. One breath at a time, my girl.

    3. Renee Stevens

      Renee Stevens

      Thank you, @MacGreg, Sir. I’m definitely hoping to feel better afterward. And definitely hoping to eat something other than chicken, baked potatoes, and rice!
