One Flea


I just realized..  Thanksgiving will be here a little early this year.  Where did the time go?  

Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away!

  Last year I cooked.  This is our 'going out' year!  It's fun!!  And it's hassle-free, work-free!  All I have to do is sit there and enjoy the grands!

I am thankful!  Last evening I finished the last of my edits on my book!!  I am hoping and thinking that my goal of early December for release will be right-on!

But what I'm most thankful for...  


is...  

 Summer all year round....

 Dear Diary, 

One flea.  One single, simple, solitary, lousy flea.  That's what my mom is obsessed with these days.  Stop. Drop. and Roll.  That is what I have to do the minute her and I lock eyes.  You see..  she looks at me and all she sees is 1 Flea.  The one that got away.  The one that could have been pregnant.  The 1 flea that could multiply and become dozens.  Just one flea.  Ugh!  Gracie.
