Hopelessly addicted to Webkinz

Hi Everyone! Just a quick update. Things are ticking along with my novel... the writing is starting to flow again after a long hiatus. I haven't done any more on the Elfin Chronicles yet but I'm planning to. The whole thing is already planned out in my head, I just have to write it.

I am starting to interview for teaching jobs. I'm trusting the Lord to help me find the right position.

We are addicted to Webkinz, thanks to my sister! She bought DS and me each a pet and now we are online all the time to play the games, win free food and hunt for the Gem of the Day! The whole thing is just too cute for words and very entertaining. (A little too entertaining, sometimes.) I have been resisting the urge to get another real pet for years now, and this satisfies that, in a way. It's also like a virtual dollhouse! You get to purchase items for your pet's room using money you earn by playing games in the arcade or working in the employment office. So my two doggies have a nicely furnished bedroom, a kitchen and living room, as well as a yard with a virtual garden. I harvested my carrots yesterday! Yippee!!!

I know, I know, it's a little strange for an adult to get so caught up in this. But there's a little kid in all of us that just wants to play!

Have a great weekend, everyone!
