Yay, it's Friday. If you listen carefully, children and working adults everywhere are screaming with joy. You may have heard a few "squeeeee's" this week. I have heard of a book deal for or agent found for a lot of writers in the blogosphere this week. CONGRATULATIONS!!! That is soo awesome. I will be contacting people next week to do some First Time Author interviews. I'm pretty psyched about that. Pop over and say congratulations to these talented and hard working, slightly insane writers. :)

If I somehow forgot you and would like a link in my blog-please let me know!!
Also-Maxine in Texas, that's my elementary school best friend!! I found her on myspace, we friended on Facebook and now I'm proud to see she is following my blog. :) Maxine was my first ever beta reader when we were in grade school. Remember, Maxine?? :) Check out her absolutely awesome blog on living green.
And in yesterday's local headlines for Knoxville TN, I saw this
Woman: Polite, knife-wielding robber in downtown Knoxville forced her to make an ATM withdrawl. Hmmm, at least he was polite?? LOL See, manners leave a lasting impression.
The best way to teach your kids about money is to have none. (I can't remember who said this, I know I'm terrible. But it was so hilarious, plus it gives me hope. LOL)
I love being a godparent. It's so cool. I adopted a goddaughter. She calls me god for short. I taught her that. ~Ellen Degeneres
And finally....on a heavier note, please remember the soldiers that died at Ft. Hood, TX yesterday and the wounded, and their families. What a tragedy, to have our military attacked by one of their own. Remember all of our soldiers, here and overseas. THANK YOU!
Have a great weekend everyone! See you on Monday.
