About Me

My photo
I grew up in Colorado at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, then lived in Denmark and traveled throughout Europe before coming back to Colorado. I have two adult sons, whom I cherish. I started my writing career as a columnist and investigative reporter and eventually became the first woman editor of two different papers. Along the way, my team and I won numerous state and several national awards, including the National Journalism Award for Public Service. In 2011, I was awarded the Keeper of the Flame Lifetime Achievement Award for Journalism. Now I write historical romance and contemporary romantic suspense.

2 Tired 2 Blog

Long, long day, but a good one. Things seemed to change by the hour at work today, and all for the better. I'll wait to see where they end up before I say more. I feel very good about all of it — what a relief after the stress of the past several months! Regardless of which way things go with my job, I feel very good about all of it. Sometimes when you take a stand it makes a difference -- that's what my message has been as a journalist and now it seems to be true in my own life.

It's snowing again and very cold. I came home to a house that was FREEEEEEZING and still don't feel warm. We've had six feet of snow since Dec. 22 right here in my yard, so I'm kind of done with winter. Yes, this is Colorado, but as Evil Libby can attest, usually our winters are pretty balmy, unless you're in the high country, i.e., mountains.

Tonight, Benjy is spending the night at a friend's house where tomorrow they will treat their girlfriends to a three-course meal which they will have cooked themselves, roses, mini-lights and a guitar concert, during which these three boys will take turns as lead singer to sing "their" songs to their girlfriends. Much preparation has gone into it.

Liz, my son's girlfriend, has her own special plans.

Much romantic scheming going on.

If I knew how to post photos, I'd post one of the two of them. Too bad! There's one where he's giving her flowers and you can see on his face how utterly besotted and in love he is.

Off to bed for me before I fall over.

(((HUGS)))

So glad things are on the up and up, must be doing your head in though.

My son is 3.5 and he is bugging me in a huge way to be taken to the snow to learn how to ski! He'd think it was awesome to have some in the garden...

The valentines plans sound sweet, I really hope they go well...but not too well *eg*. I am so far away from all that business, well I hope I am!

Take care, J xx

Hi, sweetie!! So glad things are going better at work. It has really played a number on you and your immune system. Get healthy both physically and mentally, please.

The boys sound like they have it together. I bet it will so sweet and I truly hope the girls appreciate it. What are Liz's plans?

Hugs, Debbie

I hope today continues to look up for you! And I hope you warm up. I moved from Montana in part to get away from the snow...I am not a cold weather girl at all.

Happy Valentines Day PC!

Rosie said...

Ewwww, snow. LOL. I was just checking the Cleveland news (where I am from) and they are having the worst blizzard since 77. Boy am I glad I'm not there!

The boys' treat for their girls sounds awesome. I'm sure their girls will be totally impressed with their efforts.

Have a great day, sweetie!

I'm so missing walking around in flip flops in the middle of January, that's for sure. And where the HELL did our 300 days of sunshine a year go? See, it makes me cranky too.

I can't wait to hear a full report of Benjy's big date!

Happy Valentine's Day to you, too!

XOXOX Libby

Hey there dawlin'

I'm SO glad things at work are evening out, nothing is worse than dreading each work day. Maybe someone finally figured out what an asset you are! I hope the tone continues.

Blech. More snow huh? I get ready for spring almost as soon as winter starts anymore. You have certainly had your fair share of it!

Next time we YIM I can help you do the pic posting, I too would love to see Ben looking besotted LOL

My DH bought flowers, cards and live lobsters for us today, so we'll be sitting down to a nice supper here shortly.

I got your package and next time we talk I'll comment LOL, I love it!

Hope your having a relaxing evening!
MWAH!

Nes said...

Pam! Glad to hear everything is on the upside!

Oooh and I got your book! Yaay! Now I can finally read them in order!

Have a great weekend! MWAH!
