4th of July

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July yesterday! I basically hid in the house all day from the sun and wrote about Caeden and Sophie. (Which I consider super duper fun) Ever since I got really sick this past October/November (E-coli got in my bloodstream and I nearly died) the sun has made me feel sick. Normally I'm out swimming and having a good time but not this year. But even if I hadn't gotten sick I still wouldn't be outside much. 100+ temperatures with high humidity is just not my thing. So, I'll just hide in my house like a vampire. Teehee.
Our local high school (about 2 minutes from where I live) shoots off fireworks. Well... Virginia decided to have another freak storm. My dog, Zar, hates any loud noises. He doesn't even like high wind. So lets set off fireworks, thunder, and freakish high wind and see what he does.

I end up with a scared dog on my lap while I'm trying to write. If someone isn't holding him then he freezes like a statue and won't move. Sometimes it looks like he's not even breathing. Other times he shakes really bad. It's pitiful and breaks my heart. My other dogs, Bennie and Tucker, don't do this. They're all chillaxed. Tucker looks at Zar like, "What on earth is wrong with you?" 


“I wish you’d sing and play for me more often. You’re so talented.”
“I don’t know about that,” he finished the song and leaned the guitar against the wall.
“Really?” I quirked a brow. “When you played at Griff’s those girls were ready to throw themselves at you.”
He laughed. “Okay, maybe I’m not that bad.”
“Ya think?” I smiled. 


  1. Sorry about the E-coli scare you had a couple of years ago but I love outsider so much. The extras are amazing and I can't wait for "INSIDERS" to finally be released. I'm so excited I cant stop thinking about it! September needs to get here faster!!

    1. It was scary but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Without it I would've never put my books out there for the world to see. I plan to do more extras after I finish Insider and of course I'll do Insider extras. I'm writing all the time so maybe, just maybe, it'll be done early. *fingers crossed*
