Feeling strongly about the election

Now that the election is over and we can take a few deep breaths, I thought you might enjoy this note my younger daughter (AKA the Melodrama Queen) left on my pillow a couple weeks ago. I’ve erased her name to protect the not-so-innocent.

The back of the page lists her favorite foods, states that in case of her death we should save her favorite stuffed animal “for future kids”, and says we should tell her friends and teachers she loves them.


We had a talk about appropriate forms of political dissent, my daughter and I. And needless to say, she was thrilled with the outcome yesterday.

Thanks to Random.org we have a winner! Congratulations to warpedminded for winning the e-cop-y of Good Bones, and thank you to all of you who entered.

NaNo is going well so far. I’m over 7000 words into the Good Bones sequel.

Here’s what Halloween looked like at my house. Can you identify which character my younger daughter is portraying so frighteningly?
