Where have I been?

I turned in the revisions for I SO DON'T DO FAMOUS. Today. On time. Yay. Oddly enough, my elbows are sore.

Child #4 was particularly happy. "Now you'll have more time to spend with me!" She was a little less thrilled when I brought out the math homework! And, just so that you know I'm not all work and no play, the two of us went out to dinner (the boys were all at various activities involving pools).

I've also been skipping around cyberspace, guest blogging!

Here's a fun post at the Teens Read Too Book Club. They provided some of the questions, and I, uh, tossed in a few of my own. ;) And the stuff about the parent-teacher interview when I was in kindergarten is true. Also....there's a chance to win a free copy of I SO DON'T DO MAKEUP.

And here's a link to a review of I SO DON'T DO MAKEUP and another chance to win a copy of the book: The Divining Wand

All in all, I'm VERY glad to have the revisions in. I'm looking forward to catching up on blog reading, book reading, the gym, and sleep. My family hopes I return to cooking, cleaning and laundry. Ha!

My right wrist gets sore when I'm working, because I let it rest on the desk while using my mouse.

I was just giving my friend's daughter the lowdown on your book in the hopper. She's in the middle of I SO don't do Spooky right now and LOVING it!

Congratulations on getting the revisions in, Barrie! I agree with your "Ha!" on not returning to cooking, cleaning, and laundry. Why have kids, if not to share in the housework? ;-)

Funny interview, especially about eating paste! Congratulations on managing your release, edit and the math homework! You deserved a night out. If you're looking for a good book to read, my daughter and I reviewed one this week I think you'd love.

Congrats on your finishing the revisions! I'm sure that is such a relief.

PS: When are we going to be doing the writing-club-meeting-post?

PPS: My copy of I SO DON'T DO MAKEUP came in the mail today from Barnes & Noble!!! I am reading it as we speak. And I must say, it is magnificent. :)

That's great about getting the revisions in. On time even! Kudos!

I bet the elbows are because you've been leaning forward as you obsessively read the text over and over.

Congratulations on surviving another one!
