star wars trailer

Busy. :-) I'm revamping my website, and also working on my book (blatant plug...WRITER'S ONLINE MARKETPLACE (tentative title), Writer's Digest Books, next year). Ruth called yesterday and asked if I'd help out with Sara's birthday party in late July (do all parents plan this far ahead?). This will be Sara's first "school" birthday party.

Saw the new Star Wars trailer (#3) via the Internet. So cool! Can't wait to see this move, though I'm not as much of a keener as some of those who are ALREADY in line. :-)

Have caught a cold, possibly from Annie (I shared popsicles with her on the weekend). Nothing serious, just one of those "not-sick-enough-to-stay-in-bed-but-feeling-draggy-all-the-same" sort of colds.

I can play four penny whistle songs off by heart now, though I'm sure if I actually had to play in FRONT of anyone, I'd forget everything. :-)
