Listy list

1. My yoga pants are too big. They were snug when purchased about seven weeks ago. They have not stretched out.

2. I am now a card-carrying member of the Romance Writers of America. Okay, so I don't actually have a card, but I got the emails confirming that I'm now a member. To quote Steve Martin's character in The Jerk, "Things are going to start happening to me now!"

3. I have talented writer friends. I recently finished reading and critiquing a fantasy manuscript for one friend that has a really cool creature/being in it - no, it is not a sparkly vampire. Nor is it a werewolf or zombie. It's unique and cool and awesome. And I'm up late because I just finished reading and commenting on a contemporary middle grade ms for another friend and holy shit, Batman, but it is gorgeous. And I have two more manuscripts around here to get through, and I know for a fact that they are going to knock my socks off as well. Thank goodness it's sandal weather.

4. Tonight is S's senior prom. Two weeks from now she will have graduated high school. Just over two months from now she'll be leaving for the College of Charleston. "And the seasons, they go 'round and 'round and the painted ponies go up and down . . . "

Not a thing. Not a single, blessed thing. I just loved reading about a new creature completely different from other things I'm used to.

1. You hot mama, you! Well done (and without Twilight this time, right?)
2. You are the funniest, non-card carrying card member, I know.
3. Aw shucks. Thank you for the confidence boost.
4. Wow, that makes me think about that song from Mama Mia, Slipping Through My Fingers, which always makes me teary. Congrats to S and I hope she has a terrific time. Photos please.

1. Thanks. And yes.
2. Thanks again!
3. No, thank you for the excellent writing!
4. Me too. "The Circle Game" can also make me teary. Photos eventually - I'm using actual film.

Yay yoga pants being too big - go you! =)
They host prom on Thursdays now? Ours were always on weekends. Great, now I feel old.

They've done them on Thursday here for years, but may be stopping in the future. The kids then leave and spend Friday, Sat. & Sun. at the beach.

Congrats on the big yoga pants! And congrats to your daughter's graduation. I'm already worked up over my son's preschool graduation!

I remember crying at preschool graduation - all those "firsts".

And thanks for the cheers!

Congratulations on number one and number four!! I suspect those pants will become even larger on you as you scurry to get things ready for graduation. Hope all is well with you!

Ooh - here's hoping. I'd love to have to drop another size!

All good news, though the kiddos growing up is bittersweet :)

It's true that the growing up part is bittersweet, but it's still a good thing.

Yay for those loose yoga pants. Mine were when I first got back from San Francisco, but between conferences and eating... At least I'm back to my regular yoga practice, as of today.

Congratulations on all the achievements. High school graduation is a real milestone.

I'm excited about all the stuff on the list, quite honestly. But it's wonderful seeing my oldest getting to this particular milestone.
