Finally Settling Down...I Hope!

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!

You're going to Lori's event? Now I'm really pouting. I'm not going anywhere this year.

Sandra Cox said...

I'm hoping for RT next year too, Molly.

Ashley Ladd said...

My town won't allow people to hang out laundry, even if I wanted to.

I'm with Sandra - I'd also like to go to RT next year.

Lori Foster said...

Hey Molly,
I'm leaving for RT in an hour (going in late, coming home early - I am SO not a partier) but I do hope you make it to the June event! We're June 6th and 7th, with a casual "pay your own" breakfast on Sunday the 8th. I hope that doesn't conflict with your other event!

Hugs,

Lori

I HOPE I'm going to Lori's:) I'll have to call my contact and find out if the W&A Fair has been scheduled yet. Cincy's only 3 hours from me! And Jackie used to live in Middletown; she knows the area well. Hopefully, there are still rooms available!!!

Lori! I'm honored you visited my blog:) Welcome!

Went to the website; I've got until May 19th to convince D...he just asked me if I had a winning lottery ticket, to pay for it! So keep your fingers crossed...

Hi, Molly! Thank you so much for mentioning my book, The Devil's Den! Your husband and my husband must be long-lost brothers. They're just alike about that computer. ;-) As for the laundry, if he wants clean clothes, then I'll do it my way or he can wash his own. LOL! I feel your pain on the allergies. My youngest son and I suffer from them too. And I'm like another reader, our neighborhood wouldn't allow us to hang clothes out on a line even if I wanted too, which I absolutely don't!

Thanks again for mentioning my book. I've had fun chatting with you and look forward to more conversations.
