Wonder how our Jenna is getting along? In fairness she's had baby showers left right and centre and kids homework and the like I haven't... bit unfortunate really ;)

I am doing deep breathing right now! You are speeding right along! I still have them in the freaking den. Granted, she passed out once, but still. Must get her carried up to bed today...

Jenna Bayley-Burke said...

Oh...and I have researched...nothing yet. The beginning of this one is a big cauldron of emotion without any real facts...a bit on Jane Austen comes today, but I'm usuing my own paper from college as her masters thesis, because I can...

Trish said...

Babes - thing is - I KNOW you. And when things start to go the sexy direction you're gonna grow WINGS.

I'm just tryin to get a leg up is all ;)

Jealous you have research done in the form of a flipping college paper! Beats Google hands down that does.

Are you really doing a Vineyard story?! I am so, so, so in heaven right now!! ;)

Trish said...

LOL Beth - I am indeed!!! And having a BLAST with it too ;) What a gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous place!

Few scenes in New York - some in the air but all the rest at the Vineyard... Only hope I can do it justice with as gorgeous a story...

Things I've done so far today:
Read Trish's list of research she has comiled so far and I'm bloody exhausted...

Honestly, if sheer grit and determination have anything at all to do with success, congrats in advance.

And I'm finally going to get to the Vineyard? Thanks for that, always been a dream of mine.
