Everybody Loves Wade

We’ve had some crazy happenings the last few weeks in the Burch household. I was approached by two of the VP’s at TTi. They asked me if Wade might be interested in coming back. I know my jaw dropped. I told them I had no idea – we definitely never discussed this. They called Wade…

Christmas Presents Start Early

I forgot the joys of working inhouse at a company’s legal firm and having an outside law firm. The outside law firm gives Christmas presents. Debra and I both received the tins of chocolate from our outside law firm. Yumm! Now I just have to decide if I eat it all or share it with…

    Ha – like there will be any left!

A New Baby Boy

I got a call from Michelle this morning. Bryson arrived at 2:02 am (on his due date). Bryson was 8 lbs 8 ozs. and 21 inches long. I went after work for a quick visit and got a picture of the new mom and sweet baby.

Two More Drives Down

Sunday and today were spent in the car. I drove from Milwaukee to Paducah (and saw some snow!) and arrived just in time to pick up Madison from being boarded. She was a little worn out. I got up early the next morning, loaded Madison and Taylor in the car, and headed to Nashville. I…

House Hunting

Wade has spent some of his free time in Milwaukee looking for house. I do my part on the internet from the comfort of my couch. Wade had narrowed down our house selection to a few houses and I wanted to see them. Below is one of the ones we ranked second. However, my favorite…

Another Long Drive

Wade and I have a busy weekend planned. We got up early this morning and ran a few errands (shopping, boarding Madison, dropping of Christmas presents) before taking time for a few quick pictures. Next up was a visit with Kate and her family. Taylor is a bundle of energy and into everything. Anna was…

    anonymous 10:25 mentioned that a first page costent is predisposed to favor thrillers and work against romance and literary fiction.I heartily agree, and that’s why I chose to work up a romantic thriller with tendencies towards literary fiction. (I really hate genres) I thought, why not challenge myself a bit and see if it helps really stand apart, as the only potential romantic plot that makes the first cut?The real problem with this costent, IMHO, is that there are no other cues about the plot that someone at a bookstore would have – the blurb on the back, where it was shelved, et cetera. The first page stands alone. While that’s interesting, a real book would be judged by how it lives up to the hype that it set for it by the other cues.It’s like presidential primaries that way – much of it is an expectations game.One of the critiquers already hated my entry, but more curiously hated it for reasons that don’t make any sense to me. Oh well. That’s the book biz, I guess.

Gobble Gobble – Happy Turkey Day

The last few years we have had all holidays in Paducah. This is perfect for Wade and I – we always get to see both families. This year we stayed with my mom, but had Thanksgiving dinner with Wade’s family. Wade made apple crisp and I made corn pudding. We stayed at my mom’s house…

Rain, Rain, Go Away

Today was the longest drive. I was in the car for over 11 hours. I left work around 2 pm, stopped quick to pick up Madison, and got on the road. My normal route is I-85 South to Atlanta, I-75 North to Chattanooga, and then I-24 West to Paducah. I decided to avoid Atlanta and…
