Good News & Bad News June 23, 2010

Posted by ninapaules in Living Life, Writing Life.

First the Good News.   Last weekend’s Yard Sale was a smashing success!  The total take just over $600, Anna and her friend Rachel have the funding for their trip to California.  It will be an experience from which YA novels are born.  Anna and Rachel did a stellar job at the sale, too.  More than once, buyers commented on the sale’s organization, item cleanliness and the quality of the signs that led them there.  I am very proud of the girls.

Now for the Bad News.  Taking on the Yard Sale in conjunction with returning to household duties has set my ankle and my lower back, back several paces.  On Percocet, again, my creative brain is solidly fogged in.   When the weather lifts, I’ll return.

Until then… how’s your summer shaping up?

Sorry the yard sale did you in. That’s a lot of hours to be on your feet. Glad it was a success, though. Anna and Rachel are going to have a blast! My sister has gotten tickets to a musical I think they will love. And they have chosen some neat things to do.

Hi Jaimie! Thanks for stopping by. The Yard Sale was a lot of hours but worth it, and the girls really did haul butt witout an ounce of complaint.

They are are so excited. Thank you for making the trip both possible and abundently special.

It will be my pleasure. I’m excited about showing them Hollywood and some of California. We will all have fun, I’m sure.
