Lucky 7 Meme

Carolyn Arnold tagged me for The Lucky 7 Meme

Here are the rules:  Go to page 77 of your current work or your Work in Progress and go down to line 7 and copy down the next 7 lines, then post them as they are written.  Then tag 7 authors to let them know.

Here are my 7 lines from page 77 of my new Women's novel   HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FALL OUT OF LOVE? 

         I held her and let her cry a little longer.  “We were happy, weren’t we?  That water was so blue … let’s get out our calendar and see when we have some more time off.  We’ll plan another trip.”  Her little chin trembled as she lifted her face to mine.
            “And will Daddy come this time?”
            If he’d been there at that moment, I would have chewed through his carotid with my teeth.  “No, I don’t think so, but hey …" I made my voice as cheerful as possible.  “Why don't we go and have a mommy/daughter day.  How about it?  We’ll plan our trip later, after we go get our hair done and do a bit of shopping, maybe try out that fancy new tea room across from the university.”

Okay, now I'm tagging:
