My husband and daughter are coming home from China on Thursday. Can't wait to hear the stories. My daughter emailed me this morning and said Don has learned to suck the heads off shrimp just like any good Chinese. He's been daring. He's been a good sport.
I knew he would be.
I didn't get nearly enough done while they were gone. I had great plans. There's tonight and tomorrow for some general straightening.
But like I've said before, we do “Hello” very well.
I did okay on my own. Blew a head gasket on my pickup truck. Had to replace a cracked rim on my sedan, and two new tires. Picked up the car two days ago with a big dent in the trunk from the shop they aren't going to take responsibility for. The well went out on the 4th of July, but I got it fixed. Blue got a foxtail in his left eye and had an emergency Animal Hospital visit.
And then there was the dental implant I had completed on Monday which left me “wavythinking” until today. Drove myself to Walgreens to get my meds and scared off the line of patients with my bloody gauze in the mouth.
Along the way I've learned a few things. Adjustments. Recalculating. That's what life is all about, right?
I was on three blogs this week, plus my own twice, and a two-day six-blog tour the week before. I had a ball!
Got my book cover posters I sent to Jimmy Thomas signed by the man himself!! Yum.
Heavenly Lover made it to the #1 spot for Fantasy Romance on Kindle for 3 days. Over 11,000 downloads taken. Yup. I got a screenshot of that one!
My new book, Accidental SEAL is doing really well, and still climbing the charts after its release on June 18th. The short, SEAL Encounter made it into the teens for part of the promotional giveaway. I made new friends, joined with other authors I'd been reading about for years. Cried on a couple people's shoulders. Got my first really crappy review. My friends directed me to some doozies authors like J.K. Rowling, Tom Clancy, Scott Turow and others have received. My soft little pink bubble is burst, and I'm alive, excited and full of energy!
Life is good. I am surrounded by miracles, when I remember to look for them. When I listen to the stories in my head, and in my heart.
What about you? How has your last week gone? I'd love to hear it. Any of it.
