I'm Doing a New Thing
I love hearing from you--whether it's an email, comments here on the blog, in the Chat Room, or on Facebook. And the thing you tell me most is ... you want more books. :) So, this year I've decided to rearrange my schedule a bit so I can maximize my writing time.
Part of that rearranging is trying to consolidate the places I go online. I know you visit my blog often because I have a behind-the-scenes tabulator that shows me the great number of you who stop by on a daily and weekly basis. But more and more I find myself zipping over to Facebook. I guess I go there because it's so quick and I hear back from you--which I love.
I guess what I'm leading up to is, I'm going to quit blogging every Monday. I'm not saying I won't ever post something. I'm sure I will. It just won't be on a regular basis.
In order to keep from having to check back to see if I've written anything, you can click on the orange RSS Feed at the bottom of this post. That way, it will send you a little alert if I post something. Also, you can sign up for my eNewsletter. I only use it for very special announcements, so you won't be inundated with emails. That's another way to keep up.
Of course, we have the Chat Room. The girls visit over there all the time and I stop by every couple of weeks--sometimes more, sometimes less. But something is always going on.
Now, if you are a Facebook user, I am on FB every single day--even if I don't post something. So, that's the best place to find me.
In the meanwhile, feel free to leave a comment here. I receive an alert every time someone writes a comment. So, I'll be sure to read yours.
On New Year's Eve our 23 yo daughter got engaged. Her boyfriend originally planned to propose after dinner, but was so nervous he was afraid he might throw up and not enjoy their expensive dinner. So, he took her to an affluent neighborhood in Dallas known for their Christmas lights. There was a park with a gazebo decked out in lights. He led her to it. Right as he bent a knee and opened the ring box, a horse-and-carriage with a group of people inside passed by. They all started applauding. :)
After the proposal, they had a lovely dinner. The chef made our daughter a complimentary creme brulee and decorated her plate with a chocolate diamond ring and a "Congratulations."
Meanwhile, their friends and family gathered at the home of her boyfriend's parents. Greg and I were there, along with our other daughter, Greg's sister & husband, and Granddad. The kids arrived after dinner and we all celebrated. I haven't stayed up until 3:30 a.m. in a loooooong time!!
It was great fun and we are thrilled with the young man she has chosen to spend the rest of her life with.
