IT'S OVER WHEN THE FAT LADY SINGS
Okay, I'm not singing, but I'm definitely fatter. LOL I think that means the RV trip is over for now. All those DeBrand truffles have taken a toll. Now it's back to SERIOUS dieting!

We had the best time! I learned that everything is more fun with truffles, that friendship can even withstand being trapped in an RV for ten hours at a stretch while we battle over the heater, and that there are a lot of wonderful Hoosiers out there. Another fun fact is that at every Barnes and Noble store we stopped we were told that the Christian section moves more books than any other. Isn't that cool? We're making headway, folks! Christian fiction is a-changing and we're on the front lines. I'm lifting my sword and shouting, "Charge!"

But what's with my husband expecting me to pick up right where I left off when I get home? There's laundry waiting, no food in the refrigerator and green stuff growing on what's there, dust an inch thick on the tables (okay, I'm exaggerating but not by much). Doesn't he realize I'm used to better treatment than that? I spent the nights in a hotel with a paper slipped under my door and nice little toiletries ready for me. Someone else made my bed. I think I've forgotten how.

I say we go for Mexican tonight! I'm not sure these hands know how to cook any more. And they don't want to relearn it either. Besides, I'm neck deep in edits for Fire Dancer. Something HOT sounds just right.

I can so relate, Colleen. A mountain of laundry awaited me when I got home--I just finished it yesterday. Okay, I haven't folded and put it away yet, but I'll get there.

Back to the scrubbing toilets side of life, 'eh?

FYI...today at Walmart I found something yummy!
They are called Hershey's Sticks...I got them in Milk chocolate and caramel and mint. They are perfectly sized with 60 calories per stick. Just right for my new chocolate diet...lol!!

Laundry waiting for you? Dust everywhere? This.is.just.not.right! (Tell me that, at the very least, you brought home a hidden stash of chocolate.)

Well, that post was misnamed. I looked that picture of six times and I don't see the fat lady!

Glad you had fun and with such wonderful reports.

My opinion is that hubby should be so happy to have you back he should take you out to dinner. And you can tell him I said so. (Even though he has no clue who I am, lol.) (Big Grins)
