I’ve got some new excerpts up at my messageboard for Taking Chase, Thrice United, Threat of Darkness and Ascension.
I’ll be chatting tonight with the rest of the Dynamic Trio at We Write Romance at 6 pm pacific/9 eastern.
My wonderful husband indulged me this last week and we got a Roomba! Okay how cool is it that there are robots who clean your floors? But I don’t want my kids touching it so I told them they’d die if they did. My husband thought that was harsh so I changed it to I’d kill them if they broke my floor cleaning robot. The boys seemed to understand that one quite well but the two year old is fascinated with the robot but I’ve been warning her not to touch it so of course the moment I’m out of the room I hear the darned thing turn on and her scream and the patter of her feet as she hightailed it out of there crying. It was hard not laugh as I rocked her and stroked her hair because man was she freaked and she knew she wasn’t supposed to touch it anyway so she had that guilty face they get. Still, she probably won’t touch it again until tomorrow, LOL. I know, mother of the year.
I’m at 7500 words on Chased and Marc has turned on the charm big time. Liv doesn’t quite know what to do about it though. Still won’t stop her from looking at him when he takes off his shirt and he’s all muscly and sweaty. Heh.

The Roomba is great…my son got one and he and his wife love it. My husband, son and the in-laws installed their bamboo flooring and the Roomba really keeps the dog hair under control….they have 2 Border collies that turn the floors into dust bunny central. Of course, one of the dog spends his time growling at it when it is on! 😀
I have not decided if I want one, yet, as the I am afraid the 3 grandchildren will try to ride on it. They already ride the Hoover canister vaccum cleaner! 😕

Oh yeah, bring on Marc!
LMAO at the Roomba! You’re abetter mom than me. My kid would be getting the big I told ya so, even at 2 LOL. Hmmmm, I’m noting Kathy’s comment about how it keeps the dog hair under control and wondering if it will make it from room to room and down the hall…

Lori, The Roomba travels through the whole upstairs of my son’s home, as long as there is nothing stopping it, such as a closed door, or a piece of molding across a doorway.
