So, I totally forgot it was my day to blog as I hit snooze for the fourth time on my alarm clock this morning before it dawned on me (pun intended). I've been crazy busy the last few weeks, it's a miracle I have found time to write (40K and counting). Add on crazy busy at work, holy geeze, give me a break already, my son's birthday (the Ontario Science Centre is a total hit for 8 year old boys and 5 year old girls). My hubby couldn't help out at home for more than a week (eek, I had to cook dinner for seven whole nights, imagine that) because he was working a film festival for short films. On top of all this, it's been a terrible year for allergies, too (hence all the snooze hitting) I usually am breathing easy by mid-June.... Stupid weather, stupid pollen. And if all this wasn't enough to add to my schedule, Tiff who is allergic to excercise has been speed walking and rowing cause I don't know how it happened but I've gained a good 15 pounds in the last year.
Oh, and let's not forget picking up the totally amazing book Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase to read on a Sunday night when I've got a million things I should be doing... yeah, there has been very little sleep happening! But it's sooooo good.
I'm sure you really don't want to know all this. And really it's more like babbling at this point. I also got my contract last week for my books. So it all feels a bit more real... signed a million copies of it, Fedexed it off (that was another nightmare, so don't get me going there) and decided I better get my pictures done and my bio written and all that jazz. My website is being done by the amazing Frauke, but won't be up till September. I'm sure there is soemthing I'm forgetting in all this. I probably won't realize it till the moment it needs to be done.
Anyway, I thought I'd share the pic that didn't quite make the cut for the back of the book, but I liked it nonetheless (Tiff hates having her picture taken). It's about time don't you think? Since my hubby is a photographer. I won't share the one I'm using for the back of the book yet, but I'll share this one (shh, don't tell Scott it's going up untouched), which will probably go up on my facebook page and what not.
Ever feel like life is flying by and you don't know when your feet will at least hit the ground at a running pacing?
