I was attacked this morning!  It happened so fast I didn't even have time to think about what was going on.  Now don't freak out...I was not physically attacked ...although, I did use a bunch of muscles as I fought my way through the morning.  It was very unexpected, and certainly not planned.  My original plan was to pay some bills, take out the garbage, (gigantic boxes and lots of Styrofoam) and see if I could load my books onto my new computer without losing my mind. (I practically lost it the other day when I was trying to figure out how to load my pictures with Windows 7.)

Anyway, it all started just after making my coffee.  Suddenly I found myself cleaning out the fridge!  The next thing I knew I had the stove ripped apart and those silver spill catcher thingies soaking in the sink.  Strangest thing of all - I actually threw my bathroom rugs in the washer while I scoured the bathroom!  Sweeping, dusting, vacuuming, and Windex-ing came next. (I only broke one nail in the process) I even ironed my hubby's "white coat"!  I can't say for sure how this came about, so I'm just calling it "Attack of the Cleaning Bug"  It jumped me without any warning what-so-ever.  And now my house is clean!

Ok, so before this gets boring, (too late?) I'm going to give you all a link to my very first interview!  I'm sure some of you have seen it already, (since I posted it a zillion times on face book and even sent it in a mass email), but seriously...I think Jessica Knauss asked me some great questions and really made me think!  (One of her questions has even prompted me to start my query-letter synopsis!)

Here's the link...I hope you take a few moments and hop over to Jessica's blog to read it if you have not done so yet!  Please let me know what you think!

The interview was posted on June 8th.  It's the third one down, (you can't miss my face!)

Well, at least I can't miss it here on my new ginormous computer screen!  The monitor is a 24"  (hubby's idea) It is definitely going to take some time to get used to this, but I am not complaining!

Here's some photos comparing the old and the new:



Have a great weekend!


  1. LOL...we just did the same thing to our house mom! Smells like bleach and pinesol in here now instead of the sweet syrupy stink of Travis's brown sugar oatmeal he made yesterday! Not sure why it clung in the air but it was nauseating.
    and I'm anonymous again because google sucks!

  2. You are too cute! Send some of that bug over to me!! Love the new computer screen, and adore the blue bottle/vases! xoxoxox Cheers!

  3. Well darling daughter...I could show you how to do the comment thing...if you had the patience to let me...(just sayin)
    LOVE you DD~~ ♥

    Diana- If I knew how to bottle that "bug" I would send it to you! LOL
    I do love my cobalt blue...just posted a photo of my newest bowl (using for fruit) I love it!! :)

  4. Oh Sharon, you are a riot! My OLD v NEW pictures do at least have a difference Bahahaha! What the heck did you clean? Nice new computer tho'. Oh and next time you get a cleaning bug come to my house and clean something that's really dirty!

  5. DiAnne! That's what I was comparing: the old and the new COMPUTERS, not the desk!! LOL I didn't even bother to clean off the desk before I took the pic. of the new puter! :)

  6. Love the new monitor! I have one at work, and yes, it took my eyes some time to adjust as well. If the cleaning bug strikes you again, let me know and I'll give you my address! :D

  7. LOL...I'll be sure to let you know, Lisa!!

  8. I'm due for a visit from that cleaning bug. Some days I think he lost my address. Your office pictures are making me cringe--I can't even see the top of my desk. But the monitor is awesome--must be fantastic for pictures and seeing pages side by side.

  9. It is awesome for pictures, Ellis. I'm still reloading all my photos from the old computer...and now wondering if there is a way to make them smaller...some of them are stretched out so far, we all look like short, and very wide people...
