The photo above shows what your dining room looks like when America’s Most Wanted comes to visit. And I am posting this picture because I got an e-mail from America’s Most Wanted today, saying that they want to do an update on Michaela’s case. I know you will all be excited to hear that, and I am as well. Oddly, part of what excites me is the unexpectedness of it … just the fact that unexpected things happen, and that sometimes really good things happen with no warning, when you are least expecting them. I’m sure you get what I’m getting at here. And the last visit from America’s Most Wanted was actually really exciting. They had contacted me and had arranged to do another show on Michaela in 2009, and shortly before the time they were supposed to come film, Jaycee was found … so rather than the nice update on a long-missing child they had planned, they ended up walking into a firestorm of media attention on Michaela. And yes, you get where I’m going with that again.
Hope springs eternal, right?
In other news, I have had some breakthroughs with my book. There was a bit of it that had gone astray, and I have now found where it’s gone. I have also completely revised the point of view. Revise, revise, revise, right? But it is feeling good.
I am also meeting within the next week or so with our detective to catch up on what’s going on with Michaela’s case.
And today my husband saved the neighborhood by jumping the fence and putting out a fire in the neighbor’s back yard.
That’s the news, folks.
