Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Hi guys, just a quick note to update you. Shann is in the hospital, so hopefully will get feeling better soon. I've been horribly sick almost the whole week so far that I've been in Maryland. It doesn't really seem to be a flu or virus, but we're being really careful with my food allergies, so I'm a...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

yeah, Leah, my boyfriend Andy is always amazing at all the stuff we have around here even like more focus on natural foods and soaps and stuff compared to there. I'm trying to figure out what I'm going to do about laundry soap while I'm there because he's not sure they even sell the scent free ones....

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Shann mentioned it briefly, but did you all hear that FaithWriter Jess Goodwin Capps passed away today? Thanks to Becky for texting me this morning to let me know. Jess used to be very active on this site, but then had gotten busy and was more into music than writing. About a year after she got marr...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

I pop in just in time to get encouragement about my book. :mrgreen: Thanks! Rachel, I have Nook and love the ink-screen technology so much. I think you'll use your Kindle a lot even after you have the iPad. Leah, so sorry you got a cold on top of the fatigue from the trip. :( Glad you're doing a lit...

Re: Master the "Show; Don't Tell" technique

Thanks! Yes, it's on Smashwords, so is available for any type of reader. I think I have it directly on Kindle and Nook, too.

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Wow, Rachel, the pic is cute and that sounds tiring but fun! For a while my five cousins lived with us, so there were 8 of us. But everyone was dark-haired except for me--I had white-blonde hair until I was about seven, and now it's medium brown. But as a kid everyone though I was the odd one out. :...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

So what is your connection to homeschooling Leah? Were you homeschooled or do you homeschool? Do you homeschool your kids, Rachel? I was homeschooled K-12 and always thought I'd have a bunch of my own kids and homeschool them, too. Life had other plans... I'm not married yet and ended up with about...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Hey Tim, if you popped in at least every couple weeks like I do, then you could keep us updated a bit easier instead of just dropping teasers. Just saying. :mrgreen: It's the 1200th page! Leah, I liked the second season of Once Upon a Time. It looks like they'll be doing both a 3rd season and a sort...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Amy was thinking of staying in a hotel room one night even if she is close by. Leah you should see if she is interested in staying with you. That way if she needed to rest in between she could Oh I forgot to tell you that I decided to go ahead and get a room for both Fri and Sat nights. I would lov...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Hi guys, sorry I've been gone so long. I've been missing you but have been still so sick it's hard to keep up on anything. I'm trying to make myself work on my workshop for the conference. Otherwise my dream last night of showing up without it prepared will actually be true. :shock: At least I've ta...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Hi guys, thanks for asking about me. Sorry I haven't been here. I''m still not doing well. I thought I was starting to baseline a little but then have been worse the last few days with my fever even higher... it's getting out of the "low-grade" range and into regular fever in the evenings now and so...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Becky, so sorry about your dog. My childhood dog died from heart problems at 9 years old. We almost had to put him down, but he went on his own before we had to. So tough. I've lost some cats I was really, really close to, also. Hugs. Leah, glad you figured out the meeting hopefully won't be a biggy...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Andy and I have watched through Season 6 of the new Doctor Whos and yes Leah, they do get better. Though I thought Season 1 was pretty good. We tried to watch some of the old ones, but they are harder to get through. I didn't make it through more than part of the black and white ones, but the color ...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Hi guys, I've missed you. Have you missed me? :mrgreen: Sorry I haven't been around. I haven't been doing well and am just barely clinging on to the basics of what I need to do. I can't remember when I came here last, but I've had a low-grade fever for five and a half weeks now. I'm still waiting fo...
