If the rest of the month goes by like the first three days- August is going to be completely crazy. I know, blogs are where one can look organized and on top of things to the whole world while the toys and laundry piles up in several areas of the house, but seriously... I'm running out of blank days on the calendar.
Not book related, but still cool- I spent Saturday afternoon at the National Guard base performing for and enjoying the Diversity Days celebration. Wow, did they take good care of us. It was unbelievable. They offered ice cold water bottles to us the second we arrived, and asked us to stay for dinner- which I totally did. Meanwhile, "Go check out the free school supplies donated by Family Dollar." I got most of my back to school list of supplies for FREE. Holy cow.
And, if that doesn't just make every mom's day- there was jump houses for the kids, free face painting, and enough candy for all. Between that and not having to cook dinner, I was in mom paradise.
Oh yea, I should mention that my cloggers totally rocked. Our shoes were really loud and everything echoed of the metal covering making us deafening. But we were outside and considering how loud their jets are, I'm sure we hardly made a dent in anyone's hearing.
So, back from the National Guard and onward to a preschool show tomorrow. Nothing too big or too small for my dancers. I talked to the gal who organizes the Women's Fitness Celebration entertainment and she said they had our name down in a hundred places so they wouldn't forget to invite us to their event. I'm sure she was exaggerating- but still- what a nice thing to say.
Changing the subject to writing...
so close, so very close to the end of Book 2. So close.
And, Utah, here I come.
Logan on Saturday- August 8. Book Table from 12:30-3:30-- notice the time change.
Tuesday, August 11, Park City at Dolly's Book Store from 1-3.
Same night -Barnes & Noble in Orem for the Authorpalooza from 7-10 PM.
And Layton at Barnes & Noble on Wednesday, August 12 from 12-2.
I think I'm supposed to post a whole blog thing about the Authorpalooza, which apparently is a big deal. My publisher even e-mailed me to tell me to be sure to wear clean clothes that are pressed if necessary. Talk about posh. The pressure... ha ha.
So, I'm thinking I'll have to paint my toes or something. You know, make it really special. Maybe even wear a necklace or something. We'll have to see.
Hopeful or Hopeless?
