#5: The gas station: I love the feeling of driving around with a full tank of gas (it lends itself to my daydream of packing up the family and driving to Longboat Key, FL just because I miss it). However, I loathe that it now costs me over $50 to fill the tank.
#4: My hair: Yesterday I spent 20 minutes blow drying and then straightening it with a hot iron. It looked marginally better than usual (according to my kids). But I’m seriously not loving that it took me 15 minutes longer than I usually spend on my hair.
#3: Taco Bell: I love their al fresco menu. Their yummy steak taco al fresco only has 160 calories and 4.5 grams of fat. I despise the fact that my stomach cries out for it every day at noon. (Honestly I can’t be within a five mile radius or I capitulate).
#2: Baseball: I’m lovin’ that the boys of summer are back at the ballpark. The fact that my team is still winless is keeping me far away from the television set. Won’t watch until they win their first game 🙂
#1: Email: Right now I’m checking my inbox constantly. It’s what I do when I’m waiting for writing related news. I always (always, always) anticipate a rejection. I’m not a pessimist….it’s just that my gut tends to be more honest than my brain. During the window between when I submit a wip and when I hear back I usually binge eat (see # 3 above), open my email fifty times a day, and wonder if Nora Roberts would hire me on as her intern.
