Hey girlfriend. I didn't realize you were in school. You do keep busy.Have a wonderful Memorial Day.

I have a new story serialized story at The Magic Mirror www.PinkFuzzySlipperWriters.blogspot.com.

I hope to mail the entry tomorrow or Wednesday overnight :-)

Tami Brothers said...

Hey Mary,

Yep, I can't seem to slow down even when I want to. I'll hop on over to your blog and check this out.

Welcome, Angela. I hope you get it sent off. I'm just finishing up with moving and cleaning and painting. Now I have to get in gear and get mine in as well...

Good luck.


Angela Guillaume said...

Hey Tami,

I sent it off to you, overnight, and the PO guy said you should have it tomorrow by 3pm - would you mind terribly confirming when it arrives? I just have this fear that I wrote the wrong address or that I forgot something...it's so annoying!

Angela Guillaume said...

btw- congrats on the move! :-D

Tami Brothers said...

Hey Angela,

Thanks for the congrats. We closed on the sale of the house yesterday and put an offer in on a new one today. So, if they accept it, we will be moving again in the next couple of months... Uugghh!!!

Also, yes, I did get your entry.

Sorry for the delay on responding to you guys. It was going to cost $250 to move our internet and we didn't want to pay that much if we were only going to be their a short time. So I am checking it when I get a chance.

If I don't respond right away, I am terribly sorry. But I am not intentionally ignoring you all.

Have a great weekend...
