Watching Me Some Footy This Weekend

My daughter is playing in some footy games (that would be Australian Rules Football for you people not in the “know”) up in Wisconsin, so of course we’re going to drive up there and watch them. We’ll take any excuse to visit a city we’ve never been to before.

Well, that, and we like to watch her play.

I was kind of surprised to see that Racine wasn’t really all that far. Closer than Atlanta! For some reason I hear Wisconsin and think a day’s drive away. Of course, with driving THROUGH Chicago it could end up being that long—haha!

I hope the weather is nice up there and the bakeries are open. I plan on coming home with a Kringle (or two)!

My newsletter should have gone out this morning. If you got one and actually read it (some people don’t, I get that, because I tend to do that), would you please tell me how I did on my little interview? Cute? Stupid? I really want to know (FYI – I was going for cute/funny).

Writing sucked this week. I know what it is, too. I have to write this argument scene between the hero and heroine (something that will lead to the black moment—see I am almost finished). The WRITER in me knows it has to happen. The READER in me doesn’t want it to. Talk about conflict within! I think the writer-me is just going to have to stick a sock in the reader-me’s mouth and get on with it.

So…have you ever had a Kringle? Is it worth $20 (because that’s how much I see them for on-line)? In a way I hope it is. I want my money’s worth. On the other hand, if it is, I may end up ordering more (like I need to eat more sweets). Argh! More conflict! I’m cursed.

Have a great weekend. J

Good luck driving through Chicago. You are a braver woman than I. Sorry your writing sucked this week. You'll get through it. Speaking of which, I'm reading My Sunny Vampire. (Sorry it took me so long. You know how it goes sometimes.) So far, so good! I'm hoping to get time to finish it this weekend.

Kringles are pretty big - like bigger than a dinner plate around. It takes the two of us a few days to eat one. I expect they'll be cheaper in person than online. But I don't know that for sure. I hope you love them as much as I do. All that flaky pastry and gooey filling. Mmm. And now I'm hungry.

Beth - Driving through big cities don't bother me. As long as I know where I'm going, that is! Haha!

I'm really looking forward to that Kringle. Yummy, yummy!

Sorry to hear that it sucked. Here's hoping things go better soon.

I like Australian rules football. It's like soccer... only exciting.

Ivy - I'm sure things will improve. Just got too busy with other things!

Michael - It IS more exciting! I also hear that Cleveland is getting its own team. :)
