When One Chapter Ends, Another One Begins

WOW! I'm done with work. It's a little nerve wracking to think for the first time in fifteen years, I am without a job.
In the past months I've stepped way out of my comfort zone. Those who know me, know I'm a creature of habit to the extreme. I love my routine and I don't take to change very well.

I guess selling my house, leaving work, and moving to the UK would un-nerve the best. But I'm getting through it with much support from Adam(fiance), and my mom.

Yay me! I'm proud that I'm actually doing it. It's been quite the adventure thus far.
One chapter in my life has ended and another is beginning.

On a writers note, I submitted a first chapter and synopsis to the HQ Medical Romance Line. They put out a call this month, and they are fast tracking all replies. This means that everyone will get an answer by the end of August. Keep your fingers crossed for me :)

One more thing. I'd like to give a big shout out to the nurses of 7 west at the hospital. You've been a great bunch to work with, I will miss our laughs and silliness. I wish you all the best for the future.


  1. That would freak me out, frankly. LOL

    But you seem to be dealing well with it, and how cool that you just pushed right through to go after what you want! Kudos!

    Fingers and toes crossed for your sub! :-)

  2. Jamie, what's funny is, my life has been boring for so many years. I got up, went to work, came home, got online and wrote.
    I'm coping without thinking too much about it. My mom will be here on Thursday to help me clue things up in the city, so that's a huge help.
    Yup, I'm hoping to get a foot in with the sub. I can always dream :)

  3. I'm so proud of you, sweetheart. :-)

    I know that if it were the other way round, I'd be having an even harder time. You're an inspiration. <3

    Good luck with the submission! If they don't accept, they're fools! :D

    Love you!


  4. Adam- Well since we talk everyday, you know how my mood can be some days LOL. But yeah, I am coping with it in my own way.

    Love you too!

  5. Good luck to you! Having upended my life to move to another country (well, twice now) I understand how unbelievably scary and stressful it can be.

  6. I wouldn't want you any other way. :D


  7. Wow, what big steps. Good luck.

    And good luck on your submission too!

  8. Indeed it is Jennifer. And thanks :)

  9. I can't tell you how much I admire you, you and Adam both, really. Your love is really something special.
