This has been the week of Ay Yi Yi!
My husband's back went out on Friday afternoon and the Little Dude and I swept in to the rescue. (Ay!)
Thank God that my parents live just a couple of hours away because I don't know what I would've done with this lingering cold, a grumpy toddler, a pug who has suddenly decided to poop in the house and a husband who couldn't walk. (Ay yi!)
The day mom and dad went back home, the Little Dude began coughing and since Sunday, has been a supersized, runny-nosed grump. (Ay yi yi!)
But in the midst of all this ay yi yi-ing, I managed to finish two chapters, install a closet organizer and attend Alyson Noel's booksignining for her new release, Fly Me to The Moon.
Dana, that blog ho' over at that other blog, and her mom were there. At one point, we hit the floor and passed out bookmarks ... by the way, it really works when you're accompanied by a cute child or you're looking a little sass-eh like we were. ;-)
I'm not sure if we helped or hindered Alyson. But we had a blast supporting our fellow author and blog ho' and that my friends, is something that I take with me to the bookstore. I know, I know, books are pricey. (Hey, I buy used books and use my library too!) But I make a point to buy new books from new authors because let's face it, Nora Roberts has plenty of dough!
(But I'll be watching Nora's movies on Lifetime this weekend!)
Yes, I am the obnoxious customer who faces out books by (ahem) me, Emily, Erica, Alyson, Alisa Valdes Rodriguez, Lynda, Berta, Sofia, Cari, Michele ... if we want books, it boils down to supporting the ones you love, and ones who love you back.
