Six Sentence Sunday 07.29.12

Welcome to another week of Six Sentence Sunday!
I have missed a few weeks and probably will miss more over the next month. It is official: I am moving to California, San Francisco to be exact! I move in less than two weeks! My moving POD was delivered on Friday and much smaller than the Upack truck we used to get to Atlanta, so much stuff will be left behind. The job came together in the last week and a half, and as of yesterday we have an apartment! I am so excited!!!

Onto other things (more on SF below), in this week's snippet we continue on where we left off; Vaughn is stuck in his fantasy of bringing Karlea to a vampire club. They are at the point where Karlea is realizing just exactly where she is...

“What is this place?” She asked.
“A members only vampire club.” Vaughn smiled. He noticed her heartbeat began to beat a little faster. She eyed the door.
“You’re a vampire.” She said, as if she was trying to get it to sink in.
Vaughn put his arm around her shoulders, holding her to him.

Thanks for reading! Please comment, I always comment back :)

Back to SF...I still have my whole entire house to pack besides countless things to take care of in Atlanta. We still have to make arrangements to get our car shipped to our new home because we decided to fly there instead of drive. The drive to Atlanta was a nice vacation, but I don't think California will be the same, although I would love to see the scenery. I have seen enough horror movies to know I don't want to break down in the middle of nowhere between Texas and Arizona.

Note to Self: Change address with post office and put Netflix on hold!

The one problem I am having, is getting my son's pet hamster, named Hamsty to California. The airline will not let me bring him on board :( only cats and dogs. I do not know how to get him to California safely. If anyone one has any ideas or tips, please let me know. I would hate to tell my son that he can't bring him, he is apart of our family! And i don't want to do the whole find Hamsty a new home and buy my son a new one once we get there; his heart is with Hamsty.

Right now, my only option is to hire a pet relocation service, which is going to run 20 to 40 times the amount I paid for the little guy! (I plan on documenting Hamsty's moving experience for a short film :)). So, I am raising money to get Hamsty moved into his new home in California. If anyone can donate, my son and I would forever be appreciative! My son (and Hamsty) will send you a thank you card and if I do make my short film, I will certainly thank you in the credits!

Thank you! And please pass this along! And money made over the goal will be donated to an animal charity.

Thank you!

Six Sentence Sunday o7.o8.12

Welcome to another edition of Six Sentence Sunday!

This month is already flying by and I suppose I should be using my time (while my kids are sleeping) to find a new rental house, instead of posting to Six Sentence Sunday. But I'm not. The owner of the house just made it official that our lease is ending o7/31/12 while I was typing this!!!! If any readers live in San Francisco or Los Angeles, please leave me a comment on where good areas are to live in with decent public schools - i cannot afford private school at this time. Much <3, thanks!

Anyway, back to the story. We pick up where we left off last week. After a much wanted kiss from Vaughn, Karlea is beginning to realize what type of nightclub she is actually in and what Vaughn really is.

"You really need to look around," Vaughn instructed, looking into her eyes after he pulled away from kissing her.
Karlea did as she was told; the smile she had from Vaughn's kiss fading. She noticed the red eyes on some, the black eyes on others, and the normal eyes of humans; their th stamps glowing. Some humans had no stamp on them and they wandered the club with eyes and fangs watching them. Some even eyed Karlea. She noticed the couple on the sofa near them, the woman locked on the man’s neck, blood dripping down.

And that is six! I would love to keep going, but then I will be cut from the list. More next week!

Thanks for taking the time to read. Please comment, I love getting comments and I always return the favor :)

Have a great week!

Six Sentence Sunday o7.o1.12

I can't believe its July already! I'm supposed to be moving to california in 31 days?! And I'm totally broke. 
Anyway, let's continue on from last week.

Karlea returned the kiss, she smiled after they broke apart. Vaughn caressed her cheek.
“You need to see.” He said, “Look around.”
Karlea did as she was told. She began to see, really see, with nonhuman eyes.

Have a great week!
