Rolling Down the Red Carpet…

I had an incredible weekend…and…no…I wasn’t off jet setting…in fact…I only left home a handful of times…and none of those trips were very exciting

My excitement began on Saturday…by way of an announcement…Bertha-Size Your Life!…was currently tied for the best traditionally published book of 2012…in the Master Koda book contest…

Well…that was enough to give me heart flutters…knowing I was so close…and having no control over the final decision…Bertha…on the other hand took it in stride…and began writing her acceptance speech…starting with…I’d like to thank the members of the Academy…she also ordered a red runner for the living room…

So…putting it aside…I decided to focus on my tasks at hand…and…I did manage to get the artwork for the sequel organized and sent to the publisher…

In the meantime…I received a message about being on a radio program…and spoke with the host…and…yes…I will be on in March…it’s a great show…and I’ll be posting details about it soon…

Not long after that…the announcement was made…that…Bertha…was indeed the winner…and…life became a blur for a bit…what with…Bertha…squeezing into her Über sexy ball gown…and me trying to get the wrinkles out of that red rug…

After she made a few laps around the room…and thanked her supporting cast…the cat…I made a pot of chili and cleaned the kitchen…folded the laundry…and got things ready for today…

Hmmm…I’m beginning to feel like Cinderella…doing all the work while…Bertha…has all the fun…but…I suppose it is only fair…it is all about…Bertha…she’s the star…I just hold the pen…and write what she dictates…

And…that’s the way we roll…

Dressed for the End…

Might as well get right to it…how do you feel about the world ending today…

Me…well…I don’t personally believe that…time will end…but…I do believe…that after today…my life will never be the same…there are events that are happening…that will change me in some way…and I won’t ever be the quite same…

Of course…Bertha…says that while that is true…it is also true about yesterday…and the day before…and the day before…

I know she’s right…I’ve been aware of it for some time…especially since the Chiari surgery…that I am changing…some would call it evolving…Bertha…calls it…becoming who I am…discovering my truth…and living it…finding and giving forgiveness…finding peace…just walking my path…

But…just in case it is the last day…Bertha…insisted that I wear a long sweater with leggings and boots…a first…and…a stretch…for me…and come to think about it…this outfit…may just be the event that…changes…or ends…everything…
