Currently Reading: Still reading Satisfaction Guarranteed, and bought Claire Thompson's The Perfect Cover last night. I'll probably finish SG in the next day or so, and start on TPC.
Print Book: Finished Cosby's book last night. Next up is Carrie Fisher's Surrender the Pink.
My friend John has been released from the hospital! Happy dance:)
All children have clean heads this morning! And even though I didn't get to bed until 1 am, I feel pretty good this morning.
Multi-Tasking at its Finest
I'd throw a load of laundry in; post an excerpt; read other's excerpts and respond. My TBB list has grown to a fourth page now, thanks to yesterday. Cindy Green, Phyllis Campbell, and Samantha Gentry's books sound intriguing, and Gracen Miller's The Devil's Den will be my second author's vampire book (Yours is still in there too, Dakota! Note: I said second author!)
Then I would check email, get up and tear apart my room some more (to find a place for the Pack-N-Play) and go downstairs again to empty the dryer. I also managed to fix dinner on time; watch Big Brother (YES! Natalie is on the block! Woo Hoo!); and not piss anyone off while I was on the computer! Sujrprisingly, hubby did NOT complain about the internet being on all day! Maybe he's finally seeing my writing as 'work'? Hmmm...or maybe a nice alien had taken over his body....
Thank you Regis and Kelly!
As you know, I have horrible spring allergies. I came up from the shower and hubby was watching Regis and Kelly. An allergist has written a book detailing the most effective way to deal with allergies. And one thing he mentioned was, DON'T USE A CLOTHESLINE TO DRY CLOTHES! I battle with hubby all the time over this: He grew up having his clothes dried by Mother Nature, and I grew up with them coming out of the dryer. Consequently, we clash every spring, because it's faster to throw them into the dryer. But he'd rather not heat up the house. And I hate stiff clothes! So I compromise; I hang them out, but do a 10-minute 'fluff' before I fold 'em.
Well now, I've got a legitimate claim for my dryer use! The pollen sticks to wet clothes, so if I want to have pollen-free clothing, I'd better continue to use my dryer!
I'm also living vicariously through Anny, Kelly, Brynn, and Bron as they are partying away in Pittsburgh at the Romantic Times Convention. Anny's promised to post some pics later on; can't wait to see what everyone looks like! And I'm soooo jealous; they have already met and had some drinks. Maybe next year I can go??? I'm hoping to go to Lori Foster's get together in Cincinnatti in June, if it doesn't fall on the same weekend as our Wine and Art Festival that I attended last year! And I'm also hoping to attend the Midwest Writer's Conference in July. Not to mention the craft fair circuit...
Have a great day:) We've got temps in the 70's today! Dinner tonight will be on the grill!
