In case you wondered, I haven't abandoned this journal!  I just haven't been online much at all lately. 

Seattle had its hottest day in all of recorded history last week.  My computer dwells in my upstairs office where it's even hotter than the rest of the house and it doesn't appreciate this weather.  So, I've been giving it a break.  To keep occupied, my husband and I have been spending a lot of time on our boat.  And on Sunday, we had a misadventure in disc golf.

Regarding my writing, a couple of cool things happened.  My agent was in Seattle for a conference, so I got to meet him for the first time.  He took me and a few clients to see CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, the musical, and then hung out downtown late into the night.   Sadly, to my knowledge, there is no photographic evidence that this happened.  You'll have to take my word for it. 

Also, my contract arrived!  I almost forgot to get a picture of this historic event.  But here's me at work, signing the final set while my coworker snaps a photo with my camera phone.  Yay!
