Mrs. V and I played hookey today and decided to skip church. Usually, my morality starts nagging at me when I think about skipping church, but today, I was surprised how comfortable I was with the decision. Maybe I was okay because I got to spend some much-needed quality time with Mrs. V. I was in Fort Worth from Wednesday to Friday, and then I came home just long enough to go to bed before I headed to Houston on Saturday.
This morning, I treated Mrs. V to breakfast in bed. I’m no gourmet chef, so she had to settle for bacon and cinnamon rolls. The bacon was a little on the “Cajun” side, but Mrs. V didn’t seem to mind. After breakfast, we watched Crash. I was surprised how much I liked this movie – I think it does a great job of exposing our problems with stereotypes. I highly recommend it.
We took a quick power nap after the movie, and then headed to our Salsa class. So far, it’s been very…interesting. We rotate partners a lot, so it’s a nice change-up to dance with someone different. So far, I’ve only stepped on my partner’s toes once. Unfortunately, she was wearing open-toed shoes.
Now, I’m trying to catch up on some much-needed writing. Things with the new manuscript seem to be going well, but I won’t really know until I have a few more chapters under my belt. I will say this much – it’s the first novel in a long time that I’ve attempted to write from a male POV. Peter/Isaiah/Joshua (I haven’t quite finalized his name yet) is a very interesting character. I really like the story that he’s telling.
Also, thanks to everyone that showed up the book signing in Houston. I really enjoyed seeing a lot of old friends. And Catherine and Catrina – thanks for being my cheerleaders.
