Happy Tuesday!

I have to say that over the past week I've been so boring to people! Hahhaa! Only because I'm deeply into writing this camper series. I swear it's been so fun.

Those of you who love the Divorced Diva Mystery Series will LOVE this series. There are five women in the Camper and Criminals Cozy Mystery Series that span the age generation like the Divorced Divas.
The Divorced Divas met a divorcee meeting in the undercroft of the local Baptist Church and in the Camper Series, the women met at The Laundry Club, the local laundry mat. The Laundry Club is the it place to be in Normal, Kentucky. There's a coffee station, TV's, jigsaw puzzles, and they even have a book club that meets there.

See why I've been deep into writing this? It's so fun and I know y'all are going to love this series.
Even my mama has gotten into it and got me the cutest knick-knack!

I spent some time with my kiddos and it was so good being with them. They are busy getting their projects complete for finals. Jack even video interviewed me. Nope, not about being an author, it was about divorce (since I've been divorced as you know) and how I thought it impacted his life. It was kinda eye opening on what I thought and what he thought.


To round out the weekend, I talked Eddy into opening up the pool even though the temperatures are cold and it's rainy here all week. makes me feel like I'm putting good ju-ju out to Mother Nature.

A few of you sent me emails requesting an update on my ocular migraines because you remembered I was going back to my doctor. Good news! With my eye doctor and regular doctor talking to each other and after I took my blood pressure daily for the past couple of weeks (because I was having them almost every other day recently) and due to personal stress, they realized it was my high blood pressure creating this ocular migraine. There is a treatment plan with new blood pressure medication and a migraine medication (yet another pill). Since I've been on the new medication, I'm happy to report that my blood pressure is so good and (knock on wood) no migraines! Let's hope this is the solution.

The town’s annual Christmas in the Park is underway and includes a Christmas Pawrade that’ll help the furry residents at Pet Palace get a home for Christmas.
