Mystical Adventures in Cleaning House

So in the middle of June, I’m trying something new. Every day for 9 days, I get rid of 27 items. Throw them out, give them away, whatever. There were all sorts of mystical numerology reasons for the numbers, and by the way, if I miss a day, I have to start over. Oy! The mystical thought behind this madness is that clutter holds energetic weight. So, if you get rid of weight you’ll (a) lose pounds and (b) leave space for something new and wonderful to manifest.  My husband said, getting rid of stuff? All for it. I’m on day 3. Guess which item wins (so far) the Most Embarrassing and another for Hardest to Toss.  And yes, I have indeed gotten rid of all of these things. Clothing that I’ve never worn that is over a decade old. Shoes that hurt to wear but pinched so much I

Corn Ice Cream and Sweltering Heat

Travel to NYC is always fun, but add in the Romance Writers of America conference and a book launch, and life got really fun, really fast. It all started before I left when I… Was super organized, finished all my work beforehand, and even got to the airport on time. Was an insane nutcase who packed all the wrong clothes, had all the wrong flights, and it was a miracle I didn’t get lost on the way from LaGuardia airport to the hotel. Woke early, handled TSA and NYC taxis with aplomb. I only lost it when I realized I’d forgotten my laptop. Spent way too many hours cleaning out presents from my cat which she’d dropped into my luggage. Answer: 1.  I’m shocked too! Yes, I got the work done ahead of schedule, binge watched Arrow while I was doing laundry and packing, and ended up being very Zen

CHAPTER ONE Michaela Becker’s heart sank as she reached for The Scarlet Letter. Sure, she loved discussing the fate of a woman branded by passion, the issues of male-dominated religion run amok, of government repression, stoic women, and sex, sex, sex! But she doubted her classroom of sneering, giggling, or comatose high school kids were going to engage in spirited debate. At this point, she’d be thrilled if any of them had read the American classic. Even the comic book version. Putting on her perkiest smile, she stepped out from behind her teacher desk and began the last class of the day. Please, she prayed, let them listen. Let me reach someone today. If that’s not possible, please let someone’s hair burst into flames so I can cancel class while I put them out. No one listened, not even God. At best, her questions on the story received nonresponsive stares.
