Hey, I'm back from vacation and getting things ready to start the new week off right. Which means lots of laundry, cleaning, and unpacking. But one of the things I thought about a lot while I was walking on the beach last week was what it would be like to be fearless. I don't mean rash, or stupid, but to face things head on, without over thinking them (as I'm prone to do). Taking the second step when you know what you need to do. And the third...

I think all of us are going to get one today. It's Monday and the solar eclipse is supposed to happen around lunch time. We're hanging around the house today, relaxing and waiting for the big event.

Instead, I went down a day early and went to the land of Harry Potter for a visit. I'm not a big ride person, so I didn't go on the crazy big roller coaster. And I hesitate
It stops working. My body did the same thing this last week. I've been going 100 miles an hour for over a month. My day job was busy, my writing life was busy, and my home stuff was crazy. As soon as I closed out my last Facebook party for Killer Party's release, my nose started running. I thought maybe it might just go away, but no luck. I was sick all during RWA Nat'ls. I'm still fighting the tiredness, but I worked out this afternoon, so I'm hoping I'm on the other side of
