Monday Morning Musing

I'm back after a week's absence (dang migraines!)

It's not nice to be fooled by Mother Nature. Figures that the first day of spring would see a return to winter. We went from two weeks of 60 degree weather back to the cold, hard facts this weekend! Sure it's only 38, but after two weeks of shirt sleeves and flip flops.... brrrrr. Guess we'll finally have to admit it's March, not May!

The week from hell. It's never a good feeling when you flip the calendar to a new page and realize you don't have even one open weekend the entire month. I'm halfway through that, but about to embark on a super busy week. SIGH. Don'cha just hate it when life interferes with writing?

Whatever happened to the Class of 85? Have you heard about this? Did you ever wonder whatever happened to the prom queen? The guy voted most likely to spend time in a Federal Prison? The couple voted most likely to succeed? This is a new series the Last Rose of Summer line is doing over at TWRP. Next to the historical lines, LROS is my fave line to write for. I may need to dust off some of those contemporary ideas I've shelved for this one. (Class of 84, myself. Hey! I was 12 when I graduated. Child prodigy. LOL. You don't really beleive that, though, do you?)

Speaking of Class of 84, this week I've been totally obsessed with a band I spent a great deal of time listening to back in the day--saw them in concert twice in those days. I really love what Journey's new lead singer (Arnel Pineda) has done with the old songs. Loved Steve Perry back then, love the energy this guy brings now. And that long black hair (It's Raz hair!! SIGH.) doesn't hurt, LOL. If you haven't heard his amazing "Cinderella" tale and discovery on YouTube, head over there and search for Journey on Oprah.

New follower? Well, well, well Miz Lace, 'bout time you emerged from hiding. Good to see you back, girlfriend. How many days til Zorro comes out???

Sorry about the migraines! I thought I was getting one today but it was just I had to clean house because company was coming for dinner! LOL

We turned cold today too! March came in like a lamb here and is going out like a lion.

I saw Journey's new lead singer on Oprah one day. I think he's better than the original singer.

My weekends are full too! What is with that?

Hope your week goes better than last.

Migraine is finally gone, whether it was the weather or hormones, who knows. I'm just glad it's gone for now.

I actually had to go out and buy the Journey CD, LOL. Couldn't find the new one available to download anywhere, so I had to buy the disc. Whether I'm in the car or in the house, it's playing, LOL. Good thing the hubby is so understanding about me re-living my youth this way. *G*

Glad you're feeling better!

Hi Nicole! I like the way you are doing you blog-- Monday musing, Wed on writing, fun Friday, etc. Good idea!

BTW - glad you are feeling better. I have migraines sometimes too, and I tell you it can stop everything.

Nicole McCaffrey said...

Thanks, Helen. Doing much better this week.

Thanks, Kaye, LOL, I'm so glad someone noticed. *G* Yes, they really can stop everything, even if you try not to let them. You just can't think creatively with a locomotive repeatedly ramming the inside of your head trying to find a way out, LOL.

thanks for stopping by!

I hate migraines...I get them too. This time of year, with allergues and sinus stuff, it's just icky. LOL Hope you're feeling better!
