Miracle of miracles


Look outside your windows boys and girls cause pigs just might be flyin' by! The Colorado Rockies are in the World Series. The who are in the wha? I know. The Rockies. After winning 21 of 22 straight games. They're my new heroes. I've never been a baseball fan before, but watching this team go from nobodies to National League champs was very inspiring. Seeing them do the unbelievable-win game after game after game-makes me think of what unbelievable things I can do. Like write 1,000-2,000 words a day, every day. So far, so good. In fact...come closer I have to whisper this...I think I know my story all the way through. The Rockies won the pennant and I'm going to get my book done on time. Folks are ordering ice water in hell as we speak!

And all is right with the world Carleen!! I love the graphic!! Those pigs are adorable!! My youngest is thrilled that Colorado won...he was asking me when he came in today what had happened and did I know...no, I didn't. He turned on the tv and started doing the happy dance (he's a baseball fanatic...I have 2 boys who are like that!)...
You've got plenty to celebrate girlfriend!!

Well, since my beloved Yankees are out and I hate Cleveland and the REd Sox, I shall root for your team!!

I have to admit, I'm one of the few Coloradans who hasn't been paying much attention -- I just didn't get that sports fan gene, so I never really "get it" when fans get excited -- but these pigs really made me smile! To tell the truth, I'm more excited for you about your book :)

Lisa I'm with you. Honestly, I didn't even know until two days ago when my husband mentioned it and I said, "Really?"

Yes, I live under a rock.

Carleen, I'm so happy about your book. You must soooo relieved!
