I seem to have misplaced my memory

and I can't remember where I put it ;)

This has become a theme with me lately and I'm not sure why. I'm a bit obsessive with things and hate to be late, or feel behind or have a huge to do list. When something needs to be done, I'm the one you can count on to do it and lately...well, I forget to do those things. LOL.

I'm blaming it on my huge to do list and the fact that I'm HUMAN. It should be okay to mess up once in a while, right? I have to keep reminding myself of that.

My hubby is enjoying this change of events. Usually he's the one who needs a nudge and he likes being on the other side (it's not fun for me).

I think things will start getting better now. CHARADE is done. As in I have heard from all beta readers and tweeked, changed, and even rewrote a few chapters numerous times. I move in two weeks, which will also help and I finished one beta's notes on Dizzy and sent it off to Wendy for her read.

Hopefully with a smaller list, I'll have more time to find my brain.

Wish me luck.

What's new with you? What are you reading? Excited to read?

  1. Hope the move goes well, and I know the feeling. Of all the things I have lost in life it is my brain I miss the most. Looking forward to Charade and will buy it as soon as it goes live on Amazon. i love your books.

    As to what I am reading I just finished J. K. Rowling's The Casual Vacancy and just loved it. Now onto Melina Marchetta's Saving Francesca.

    Hope you and all of yours are wlel an dhappy!

  2. I blame having kids. Before I had them, I had a fantastic memory. I worked in HR for Australia Post for a while and we had 105 candidates for 4 different positions at various points through the process and I always knew exactly where every file was when someone asked.

    Now I'm lucky if I make it out the door with both shoes on.

    I hear your brain shrinks 20% when you're pregnant. I don't think mine ever unshrunk. And after 2 kids.....

  3. I am so excited that Charade is done, I can't wait to read it.

    I am a lot like you, I hate being late (in fact it stresses me out..big time) and I like having lists and being organized but..life doesn't always let me be and do those things that I want to and as I have gotten older I realize that sometimes I just have to go with the flow.
