I did it! I booked my first Cup of Comfort for Parents of Children with Special Needs book signing! It’s in my home town during the fair. I’m excited because it was a Big Scary Step and I took it. I also have a few other things in the works, so we’ll see. Anyway, I thought that I’d start with my hometown because it isn’t as frightening. Any my mother is there. 🙂
I used to run a lot, and then it dwindled down to nothing. I’ve started up again, and it feels really good. I have a little Nike Plus mini that dances around on my Facebook page and says how far I have gone. Most of the time I’m walking and pushing two kids in a stroller, and that’s awesome, too. We’re covered in sunscreen and smell like Disneyland. I used to think up my writing ideas as I ran. Now I’m more worried about running through the broken glass that litters the road. I think of stories right before I fall asleep. Then I forget them.
My friend told me that he had a tick attached to his lower eyelid. I shuddered and danced around the house in revulsion. Sure, I have written about a vampire, but the honest-to-goodness concept of something drinking your blood? It’s so abhorrent. It’s so vile. That blood is mine, I created it, and it belongs in the body! You should see me go ballistic around mosquitoes and horseflies. How dare they? I mean, really?
Las Vegas, like everywhere else, is panicked about the Swine Flu. It’s all over the news. “We have two flights come in from Mexico a day! Wash your hands! Stay home if you’re feeling the slightest bit tired!” I turned off the news and watched the second X-Files movie instead. It was disappointing, but still beats swine flu news. Barely.
