Our New Cold Call Author and Other Random News

Oh my goodness what a week.

I never viewed my writing or blogging as relaxing until this week.

I've spent the last four days in a doctor's office shadowing the staff to see if I am cut out to be a nurses' aid. (NA) Talk about making your head swim!! I've never had so much foriegn information hurled at me more than this week.

Makes my filing system and my piddly little computer jobs here in the comfort of my own home seem a WHOLE lot easier. ;-)

And by the way...I know understand the question I have wrestled with for ages...why the wait in a doctor's office is so long! ;-))

  1. So are you cut out to be a nurse's aid? :-P

    XOXO~ Renee

  2. Hi Renee! Well, I'm not totally in LOVE with the idea, but I can do it with compentance and confidance and I would enjoy the people, so I think so, yes. :)

    Don't you have a question for Cathy?? :)

  3. Sounds like you certainly have been busy! Hope it all works out for you, wherever God wants you to be. :)

    Here's my question(s) for Cathy:

    What do you enjoy most about living in Bermuda? Do you think you'll ever set one of your books there?

    Hope you have a great weekend!


  4. Thanks Am. :) Sure been missing you lately! Great questions for Cathy. :)

  6. I do have a question for Cathy :-)

    Do you have any plans for writing another story set during the Vietnam War? I LOVED Yesterday's Tomorrow!

    Renee, good question! I'll look forward to that answer. :)

  8. Hi Casey! So have you been hired as an NA? If so, it sounds exciting!

    How did your angel food cake turn out? I made one a few months back, and I really liked it! My family wasn't too hip on it though; they'd rather eat chocolate cake, lol.

    Have a great week!!

  9. Hi Michelle! Yes, I did get the job and I start my formal round of training today. Gotta run out the door in a few minutes!

    It did turn out. My fam likes the chocolate cake too, but do enjoy an Angel once in a while. It's just such a fun cake!

    Have a great day too!! :)
