Dude, Where's My Muse?

Oh the weather outside is frightful...
I found the second set of picturesso just need to scan them so I can show my pretty stuffed bookshelf looking oh so nice and pretty -- which it isn't so much now. In fact its pretty messy. Once I finish the next set of Edits I need to go through and rearrange it. So far I'm putting all the TBR books in order of arrival. Sad when they outnumber the # of books read (4.5 this year so far) and I think 14 new books arrived since January 1st.
I mentioned I'd blog about my exercise since I signed up for PHS dieters. I'm on my second full week of exercise. Doing 20 minutes a day on the bowflex and I have to say my arms are shrinking pretty good. I should have done the old measuring tape before I started -- didn't because I didn't want to scare myself *g* -- but I'm guessing about an inch and a half of each arm. I started low on 15 pounds each side and I'm upping it to 20 next week. I wanted to start at 20 but after an argument with my trainer (aka dad) I started with 15. Some days I can really feel the warm burn in the muscles and some days not so much. So doing the bowflex and alternating with the air walker. Put on an episode of Most Haunted and good to go. Easier to exercise when your paying attention to something else. Haven't done a lot on the actual diety side. Little more water. But I refuse to cut out my coca-cola during edits. That's just insane. :o)

I’ve discovered a couple cool blogs over the last month so I thought I’d share :
- for all the blaze fans out there,
- Paranormal books
- More paranormal
Any cool blogs to share?

And I've decided I'm boring. Really. Not a lot to blog about lately. Watched the Oilers game. Don't like the new 'goon'. Course it could be because he reminds of my cousin's slimy boyfriend but still... no likey. Watched some of the car auction, but not as much as I would have liked. Missed the big money Shelby cross the block :o(
Since the Xmas pictures are back from Costco and the first bit of the birthday ones, I'll scan some tonight/tomorrow and share a few. Need to get back to blogging on a bit more regular schedule.

Does anyone know how to fix this? I'm obviously clueless and new to Word so I don't know where half the settings are. I miss works!!

Out of the cold...
Not much new. Though no news = hopefully good news on submissions right?
Tackled some of the tbr pile on the wknd. Finished HELL'S BELLES by Jackie Kessler (luved it!!) and Michelle Rowen's BITTEN AND SMITTEN (hilarious book!!) and next up is THE BLONDE GEISHA which I was lucky enough to win at ehq's open house last month. And since my new PC Cast book in the Divine series arrived yesterday, that'll jump to the top after TBG :o)
Anyone reading anything good?

Is it over yet?
Oh and get this, had someone in the first place on email support given me the same steps as the tech lady gave me yesterday? Wouldn't have had to do a system recovery at all. To quote Dean Martin 'ain't that a kick in the head?'

Bad BAD Day
Can we just say NEVER EVER again.
Brief panic after the hour spent recovering to find out, erm where are my files? Could have lost 13,000 but they were thankfully backed up and I didnt lose my captured video on the second hard drive. (big sigh of relief!!)
So I've spent the last 8 hours since it finally was bootable updating windows (all 64 updates thank you very much), reinstalling norton, reboot, nero, reboot, my trial version of office and oh guess what? The problem that caused it all?
IT'S STILL HERE.
Lesson learned. Ignore pain in the arse programs and live in oblivion. :o) Saves your sanity.
At least, it happened yesterday/today and not today/tomorrow. Not how I plan on spending my 27th b-day!!
