A little fanfare never hurts!

My trip home was loads of fun! Sonya and I got a later start than planned and wound up in the world’s slowest moving line at the airport. Ugh. I was certain I was going to miss my flight. (There have been many signs throughout that the airline is understaffed: many of my flights wereContinue reading “A little fanfare never hurts!”

What happens in Prague…

Holy exhaustion! I’m about to keel over and die. I just spent hours and hours and hours walking around Prague with Sonya and Georg. It was great fun, getting to know Georg better. In fact, there might be photos… Tell me that guy isn’t stunningly sexy! Because, hello sex appeal! And I’m usually not attractedContinue reading “What happens in Prague…”

Go Meg, go!

I can’t believe this! The guy I like here in Prague seems to like me, too. That never happens! Only for other people! Never for Meg! Go me! His name is Georg. He’s such a dreamboat. In my honor, and referring to me as the guest of honor, he brought home-cooked food to the writersContinue reading “Go Meg, go!”

Because I’m a cat!

Today has been boring because Sonya’s been busy. Her to-do list is constantly driving her to an early grave. She spends all her free time writing and editing her novels. She spends the rest of her free time beta reading for her writers groups. She takes a weekly dance class to guarantee that she’ll leaveContinue reading “Because I’m a cat!”

Party at Sonya’s place!

The trip has gone well so far, which I’m afraid to type without jinxing myself, but there it is. Today is a day of rest and recovery, because yesterday’s writers group was an all-day affair, going on for well over twelve hours. I had a blast! So today we’re staying in, ‘cause Sonya has aContinue reading “Party at Sonya’s place!”

Watch out, Prague! Meg is in da house!

Here I am on vacay!! I’m at Sonya’s writers group as we speak. They spend several hours just sitting at the table here, writing, so I worked on a 250-word story for the current contest at NYC Midnight, and now I figured I’d blog. I’m supposed to be beta reading for the other members, butContinue reading “Watch out, Prague! Meg is in da house!”

Random updates!

I’ve got a few pieces of good news, but none of this is that exciting! First of all, I’ve been wearing my hearing aids all the time, and I’ve adjusted to them pretty well. There are a few things about them that I don’t like, but for the most part, they’re great! Also, I’ve actuallyContinue reading “Random updates!”

She’s angry!

Oh geez. I just called my credit card company to alert them to impending travel, and it went disastrously awry. “I just need to send you a verification code to your cellphone,” the woman said. “Well, that would be fine, but I don’t use one,” I explained. “Let me transfer you to our fraud department.”Continue reading “She’s angry!”

I called it!

Dear Annie: In the 12 years since my first child was born (and two more children followed), our military family has yet to actually celebrate Christmas in our own home because we are always traveling to our families’ homes, lest we hear from hurt grandparents bemoaning our absence. Thus, every December, we have to balanceContinue reading “I called it!”

I’m flying!

I found my father looking demoralized while sitting at his desk in his home office. “The credit card won’t give us the money back for your flight,” he lamented. “It says right here in their paperwork that if you’ve already paid the balance, you can’t get a refund.” “Oh, posh,” I said. “Credit cards areContinue reading “I’m flying!”
