Why I love Chick-fil-A

Had another showing today. Yeah. So much fun. Only, this time, I had just two and a half hours to get the house ready. sheesh. Oh well, we made it. The house looked fantastic when I left. (It's already cluttered. Kids. Gotta love it.)

Anyway, one very good thing came out of it. I had to be out of the house for an hour while they showed it. It was freakin' hot here in Ohio, hot and muggy, so I couldn't take the kids to a park. Instead, we went to Chick-fil-A.

Aside from their good food, and the fact that they have Dr. Pepper on tap, the one near our house is a free standing location with an indoor playplace. So, I got myself a DP, and let the kids run wild and free and oh so contained for an entire hour.

With this lovely, glorious peace of mind, I found myself plotting out Newy to the end. It actually took me by surprise, because when I started writing Newy, I was aware that there were lots of ways the story could go and I planned on just seeing where the story took me.

However, as the story has gone along, I have gotten a pretty good image of how it's going to be. And, now I have a very very good image. In fact, I have a list of 49 scenes and mini scenes that take me to the end.

I am really excited. This book is gonna ROCK!

Sorry, my enthusiasm gets the better of me sometimes. Things are just coming along well. 27, 085k and still going strong.

Seriously. You do ROCK.

Whoohoo! How fun. Keep us updated. Constantly.

Yeah, we need more posts. I know you're selling a house and you have kids, but one a day. Even if it's little.

I need to take Ben somewhere to run around. That kid...trouble. T to the R to the O to the UBLE.

Oh yes, life is pretty hectic (we had yet another showing this morning), but I'll try and post more often.

Natalie said...

I can't imagine showing a house. Heck, I can't imagine having a house. I hope it sells! At least people are coming to see it, right? It's like getting partial requests...

Renee Collins said...

lol, you know it's exactly like getting partial requests. It show interest, and may mean good things, but it might mean that they are just being thorough in their searching.

And just like you, I am sitting here wondering, "did they like it? did they hate it? Will they want to see it a second time?"
