First off, I’m still enjoying the Y. I shoot for three times a week but it doesn’t always happen due to various scheduling snafus and there was a week that I was under the weather. But, for the most part, it’s becoming a regular part of my life and I’m enjoying it.
The Boy is back in school and is doing very well. He grew up a lot over the summer – and has a new teacher this year – so things are looking up! We’re also back to a regular schedule, which is very helpful. Summer is fun but I like the routine.
Let’s see… My side projects are doing very well. I’ve introduced animated reviews to C-Spot Reviews. I’m not sure how well they’ll go over but they’re fun to make. There used to be another reviewer who did them but she hasn’t done anything in over a year and I know thatÂ there are many who miss them, including me. A big thanks to Nikki for providing her thoughts and voice!
The Cocktail Hour podcast is doing well, too. We’ve got authors lined up for months to come and have introduced some new features. Nikki started hosting a movie review show called Flicks & Swizzle Sticks and one of my favorite authors and twisted people, Colette Moody, submitted her first Last Call episode discussing politics and morons. I can only hope she does lots of these because I think she’s one of the funniest people around.
Andy and I are working on some ideas around next year’s Golden Crown Literary Society conference but nothing solid yet. We’re into our third year now and still having fun.
TJ’s doing well. She’s happy and healthy and loves picking on me and making me laugh so that’s all good. I’ve been working on getting bar completion built into her fall/winter calendar. Feel free to apply pressure if you’re in a position to do so. I appeciate it!
