Time Capsule

I cocooned myself today into the latest trend of finding that ever elusive fountain of youth: The Time Capsule. Yes, that is the actual name. The Time Capsule.
NASA research has been done and L.E.D. light therapy is supposed to take years off your face and body, transporting you back into a much more younger version of your previous self---well, as far as your skin is concerned.
This is how it works: you lie down in a bed, very similar to tanning bed, close your eyes, and wait for the fine lines, sun damage, brown spots to disappear and the baby butt smooth skin to reappear. It's painless. After only one session, I can't really see a difference. Although, the seventeen-year-old working at the salon reminded me that someone younger such as himself, would have quicker results than someone my age.
I paid for The Time Capsule on my credit card, forgetting to thank the teen for pointing out that I'm old enough to be his mother and went to check out a mirror.
Wrinkle creams don't work. It's cheaper than a facelift. Maybe this is it! Have I found the fountain of youth in a Time Capsule?
I still have four more sessions to go in The Time Capsule, so the next time I write, it could be from the point of view of a twentysomething, not a thirtysomething. ;)

Writer's Guilt

Well...I feel v. guilty about not keeping up with my blog lately. Being a busy working mom with a three-year-old takes up most of my Now that school is finally out for this exhausted high school teacher...I can concentrate on having fun with my son, writing, more fun, writing, fun, more writing....and so on and so on. Not to mention watching the new season of WEEDS--which is so awesome if you haven't watched it---you MUST.
My first priority is Xander, of course. Now that he doesn't nap much, but likes to spend his time running around the house, playing outside, swimming, reading, and pooping on his tiny potty chair, the only time I really have to write is at night.
So if it takes me forever to get the next book out, you know why. But it will be out. Check back often for more updates on the book or just to read the latest blog on how I'm spending my summer: whether it's playing with Xander, going to a local festival around the metro Detroit area, traveling with my husband, catching the latest rom-com, my thoughts on entertainment, parenting, etc.
I'll be here---but only for the graveyard shift.
