Autumnal Equinox...

OMG! I missed the autmnal equinox. Was I just a basket case, yes I think so. Lots on my mind these days. Two weeks until the boy heads off to Navy Basic Training. The going away party is this Sunday and will be loads of fun with family and friends who have either watched him grow up or grew up with him. I'm looking forward to it. Met the new therapist yesterday who will help me get through the SADD that plagues me everytime we go from daylight savings time to standard time. She seems nice and has diagnoised me as only moderatly depressed. That means I don't need meds and am not harmful to myself or others. Ok well enough about me, you all have a great weekend and keep looking for more ramblings from Fridge Magnet Chronicles!

Ok, since some of you have asked...

I have a fan base! Ok, well maybe not but my friend Ray did ask why there haven't been any postings lately. Nothing really new to report except that the Oregon trip over Labor Day weekend to see my side of the family was sweet but quick. Dan and Tiff got some quality time with Auntie, Gram and cousins. The jetboat ride up to Hellsgate on the Rogue was by far the highlight. See my sister's blog to get a glimpse of some family portraits for Gram's xmas cards. Or if you are a mutual friend on facebook you can see some there. And we are in the less than 30 days countdown to see Dan head off to basic training for the Navy, 25 to be precise. Ok, well watch for future fun filled postings here at fridge magnet world!

BFF and the rejection letter!

Some of you know my bff Jana as I have talked about the adventures she and I have gone on over the years, well she called me last night with the greatest news! I have been "mentoring " her in her creative writing endeavors lately and insisted she start putting some of her writing out there via contest etc. So a couple months ago she entered a contest with Santa Fe Review (I think that's the magazine) and she got a lovely rejection letter. So kuddos to her and her story "Good Buddy" as it was a finalist but alas there could only be three picked. I have a good feeling that the right contest or submission is just waiting out there for her wonderful fiction stories (loosly autobiographical). You go Jana! WRITE ON girlfriend!
