Wal Mart Sighting!

Thanks to Erika for taking and sending me this shot of BLOOD MAGIC in Wal Mart!


Thank you Erika! You are a Rockin’ Witch! You deserve a cauldron sized Appletini!

And for my weekend story…my youngest son still lives at home.  My older two sons live out on their own.  I asked the older two boys if they’d like to go to Easter dinner at my sister’s house, but they had other plans. That’s fine.  But since I wasn’t going to see them, I only made an Easter basket for my youngest son.  Youngest son is college age, but very excited by his Easter Basket. So excited that the first thing he did was take a picture text of the basket and send it to his two brothers with something like, “Look what I got. Where’s yours?”

My oldest son called me very put out by this. How could I get the youngest and Easter basket and not him? He was laughing and complaining at the same time.

Kids…they never change!

How was your weekend?

    You are welcome! I will take you up on that cauldron sized appletini later, I haven’t finished my coffee yet.

    I was actually at Wal Mart on Saturday along with every other breathing person in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area doing my last minute Easter shopping.

    Other than being at Wal Mart, my weekend was good. I’m glad to hear that your son enjoyed his basket and the others were jealous. That’ll teach ’em to make other plans on Easter! ;)

    Too cool! I need to check my Wally-Mart and Target when I wander that direction!
    We had a busy, busy weekend–of course, I blogged about it! Now, on to the mountain of laundry I need to conquer!

    Erika, thanks again for taking the picture! And boy, you are brave to go to Wal Mart the Saturday before Easter! I was there too…but I’m not brave, I just didn’t think it out, LOL!

    My youngest son cracked me up, but as soon as my phone rang, I knew I was in trouble :-)

    Margaret, I was really happy to see “proof” that the book made it into some Wal Marts.

    I’m going to hop over to your blog in a bit. My computer is running slower and locking up lately on the Internet–not a good sign.

    I went back to grab a picture of your book at my Walmart and they’d sold out! I even grabbed the clerk and had them check with their little scanner thingys. Yup. They’d had ten copies at various times and sold all of them. Since then, I’ll looked in every book aisle in the stores I’ve been in. NO BLOOD MAGIC! I think they’re selling ’em!

    Appletinis on me! And don’t ask about my weekend or my edits! More APPLETINIS! And firemen. Or soldiers. Or…APPLETINIS!

    Silver, that’s fantastic that the Wal Mart in your area sold out!

    I can’t ask about your edits? But I wanna know!

    Appletinis it is! For everyone!

    Jen, I’ll email you. Like things that happen in Vegas, private rants should stay there.

    I have also saw your book in Walmart!

    My son which is College age came home from his Grandfathers house today, which he sets with his grandfather a few days a week, anyways he comes home and says his aunt fixed all of her sons a basket and they are in their twentys and he wanted to know where his basket was, so while he was in class today I went and bought Easter candy at half price and got out his basket and fixed it and set it in his room. He was quite thrilled but said the Easter Bunny was a little late.
