Currently Reading: Blind Faith by Claire Thompson. My word goal for yesterday was shot when I took a break to read Mary Martinez's Peek-A-Boo. OMG! I loved it! She did a beautiful job of bringing her characters to life, and now I can hardly wait to read her Enchanted Dreams and Meet Me in Fantasyland. Several times I thought I had figured out who the stalker was, only to realize I was wrong. Want a book to keep you guessing? Go over to Champagne Books and buy your own copy!
Sounds like an excuse a kid would use, huh? "My dog ate my homework.." "My baby brother destroyed my term paper..."
Last week, I threw my brand new jeans down the chute; did everyone's laundry; and now my jeans are missing.
Hubby hasn't called to say I accidentally packed them with his pants; I've looked through my daughter's clothing, but as she wears one size larger than I, they're not there. And there have been no complaints from my oldest son about giving him a pair of 'girly' jeans.
So....where did they go? They aren't trapped somewhere in the chute; it's clear. They aren't lying on the floor beside the chute; I've checked. So the only logical explanation is, they were marked wrong on the OUTSIDE when I bought them, and therefore my daughter now has an extra pair of jeans.
Trouble is, she claims she only has a certain number of pairs and she hasn't 'miraculously' acquired another pair. But it would explain why they are too large around the waist when I wear them! And the other pair I bought at the same time fit just fine.
Switching gears, it's going to be cold tomorrow. Highs only in the mid 40's. And my winter coat should have been replaced last year. Think I'll take a trip over to JC Penney or Kohls to find a new one. Mine's ten years old; zipper's been busted for three years; last year I was miserable in it. So yes, time for a change. Seems to be the mantra for the week.
Happy Birthday LFAW!
My second baby turns 1 today. And has sold a whopping 61 (??) copies in it's first year. My first book 34 in its first year. So either my promotional efforts are getting better, or people are just so sick of me talking about my books they are buying them strictly to shut me up. Hopefully it's the former...
And of course, hopefully if everything works out and both books are rereleased in e-format, sales will continue to grow...
I've been told that I'm not the only one having trouble commenting on the blogs. I used the laptop last night as an experiment, and was able to leave two comments on my own blog. But was I really in the mood to reread everyone's posts and give my witty opinion? No. I was ready to go to bed. But when I get ready to read in a few minutes, I'll switch to the laptop if blogger's not cooperating with my PC and make my presence known again. So hopefully you enjoyed yesterday's 'Memory Lane' and weren't just bored by it!
NaNo Word Count (in case you missed it): I managed to pound out 400 words yesterday. I let my oldest have the van today so I could stay home and write. I'm not even going to touch Claire's book with the curser until I've hit at least 1000 words today!
What's everyone else up to? Check out the blogs to the right and find out! That's where I'm heading next.
