I have been tagged by Susan DiPlacido! www.susandiplacido.com!
So the theme '7 things'...Here you go:
Seven things to do before I die:
1. Stop worrying all the time
2. Travel outside the US
3. Scuba Dive
4. Watch my son play NFL ball and achieve his dream
5. Finally get the NYC call for single title. If that doesn't happen soon all the others may not matter because I might just jump off a cliff.
7. The pressure! I can't think of a specific 7th. I mean I want to see so many places. I love to travel! To see the Pyramids and Hawaii and Japan and...Rome!
Seven things I cannot do:
1. Be patient
2. Stop worrying
3. eat fish - I'm allergic
4. stop dieting. I'll become huge. I hate genetics. I'm glad I had boys so they didn't have to worry about having my thighs!
5. Quit eating chocolate
6.Stop writing no matter how hard the climb upward hits me sometimes
7. Watching 24! It's addictive!!! We love you Jack Bauer!
Seven things that attract me to my mate:
1- That widows peak!
2-Sexy Spanish whispers!
3-The way he loves life! He's like a kid enjoying every day!
4-The way he loves pizza and chocolate as much as I do!
5-The way he stuffs so much popcorn in his mouth at the movies that it seems he's afraid I might get some!
6-The way he he makes me laugh when I am completely angry and should be screaming not laughing
7-That gotee and big brown eyes(hmm how DO you spell that!)
Seven things I say:
1. Your an asshole to Diego everytime he pisses me off. Then he says, your an asshole. Then I say, you are a copycat and roll my eyes.
I can't think of anymore!
Seven books I love:
The Entire Hunters Series from Kenyon. The entire Cynster Series from Stephanie Laurens. I could go on and on. I have so many books I love! Oh Galeen Foley's Lord of Sin and Lord of Desire! YUM!
Seven movies that I've loved:
1. Pretty Woman
3. Bull Durham
4. Batman the newest one!
7. Pirates of the Caribbean
Seven people to tag:
1. Rachel Carrington
2. Cathyrn Fox
3. Alecia Monaco
4. Deb Curwen
5. Vivi Anna
6. Carys Weldon
7. Dee Carey

The soott Strapp issue...Some of you may know him, some not. The former lead singer of creed is know for rocking his way to Godly lyrics. He sings about God, belief, life, and hope. But now Scott has gotten taped in a tour bus having a little sex party with some groupies...Now its being said all the good he's done with his lyrics don't matter. What do you think?
Kid Rock, Stapp Sex Tape to Hit Stores?
Explicit Video Shows Rockers With Four Female Fans
By Jonathan Cohen, ReutersOur deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves; Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do

I am going to get back to posting everyday!!! And you KNOW that means I have to have a drool vest going on! So hottie alert!!!
So..I had this grand idea that I would take a couple of classes that would improve my writing. One is criminal Justice. Wow. Okay - what was I thinking? This class is tough and its kind of sick. I mean, one of my homework questions was - If a body is found with no head, hands, feet, how do you identify it!? I wanted to write- I DON'T WANT TO KNOW!! But I couldn't of course. Still, I am learning a lot that even in my Underground Guardian series will come in handy. Diego is taking a genetics class and those of you who have read the guardians know that they had DNA from area 51 finds mixed with theirs. Some of the ideas Diego has given me for this series from his class are awesome!
I spent two hours on the phone with my agent Friday Night! She was great. I had hoped to hear some news last week and she really thought I would too. She knew I was upset going into a long weekend so she called. That really meant a lot to me.
In Texas, it was 80 one day, then BAM- its saturday and its 30!!! HELLO?! Can you say SHOCK! It even sleeted last night. Now tomorrow, guess what?! It's going back to 80! How do our bodies ever adjust!!!? !!!!! Diego, who wants to have a medical practice in Colorado LOVES the cold! LOL... I just want hot coffee and a blanky!
