Happy Friday!

Palm trees on tropical Caribbean beach

I’m dreaming of a tropical islands, hunks and appletinis.  Really, really dreaming of having nothing to do but sip a cool drink and read!

But I’m buried in work. And stuff like B&N having a major glitch in gifting e-books is making it really hard for me to deliver prizes. But…maybe when I get up Friday, it’ll be fixed. I feel terrible making the winners wait! I even had Carla (my assistant) try it, but she got the same error message. So I called B&N and they said they are aware of it but couldn’t tell me when it will be fixed.

So if I owe you a Nook version of THE BABY BARGAIN I will get it to you as soon as the problem is fixed!

Enough of all that :-) Saturday, Wizard and I are going to run around looking at stuff for this remodel that we somehow think we’re going to manage to do. Call us crazy–because someone needs to!  And I’ll be working. That’s about it. I’m slammed on getting POSSESSION done by April 15th, but determined to do it! Plus I have all the blog tour interviews and blogs to do.

What are you doing this weekend?

    Sorry about the glitch. And sorry to anyone who has to wait to read The Baby Bargain. (It’s frickin’ awesome.)

    You’re crazy. (There I said it.) Having said that, though, I hope you guys have fun with it. You’ll get everything you need to get done done in time. Just breathe.

    And yeah, I need to take my own advice. I just announced it on my blog, so I guess I can let the cat out here, too. My husband will be retired as of 5pm tonight. We’re getting ready to close on a house in Missouri and that means cleaning and packing like a madwoman so we can be out of here in the first couple weeks of April. And now I need to breathe. ;o)

    I looked in the mirror. Beach = bathing suit. No. Gonna. Happen! But you keep that daydream, crazy woman. ;)

    I like to shop for “hardware.” Home Depot and Lowes are like my favorite stores ever. It’s the only shopping I actually enjoy. :lol:

    And yes, I’m sorry people have to wait to read BABY BARGAIN, too! Loved it!!!!

    B.E., I’m excited for you! Me? I’m going to catch up on LOST GIRL episodes (supposed to be cold and rainy here) and/or work. My characters detoured yesterday and threw a wrench into the plot but dang…it works!

    Happy Friday, witches!

    BE wonderful part of the country to be moving too. I wish you and your family the best it your transition.

    Jen I think that maybe your bathroom needs to be your beach/spa oasis. That may be the only way you get there with how busy you are.

    I hope to do some reading like Silver…. I may have to create my oasis in the laundry room. Set up my lawn chair- get my book- hide from the rest of the family. I have a really good imagination so I might be able to find a tropical haven in my laundry room. Send Ram if you can it might help to have some one to hand me my ice tea. :lol:

    Hi Jenn – Sorry you’re having trouble with B&N. I hope it gets sorted out soon.
    The Twitter party was fun. Are you going to do one for Possession too?
    I’m sick. Started feeling nasty Thursday late morning and it just got worse. Hubs got home from OR last night and just backed away from me. Couldn’t blame him. He knew I was really ill when I didn’t go work out today. Hope to kick it in the butt and be over it today. I don’t tolerate being ill very well.
    Have a wonderful weekend picking out items for the remodeling.

    B.E. How exciting for you. Yes, remember to step back and take a breath now and then ;).

    B.E., aw thanks on THE BABY BARGAIN :-)

    Congratulations! New house, new state, whole new life! That’s huge and exciting news! You’re probably under way more stress than I am, but it’s all going to be so worth it. Hang in there!

    Silver, huh I wasn’t thinking about bathing suits! I may reconsider this fantasy :-)

    I’m still pouting about hardware. We can’t get what I want for a technical reason. So frustrating! I’d enjoy it more if I could get my way. Wizard really tried, but it’s just the way it is.

    Awesome on the character detour! If it works, don’t over think it, just go with it!

    Kat, I like your weekend plan! It’s perfect. We have imaginations for a reason :-)

    Oh Viki, I’m so sorry you’re sick! You’re the second person I’ve talked to today who came down with something so quickly. No working out! It should be all rest for you right now.

    The twitter party was wildly fun. I’m going to think about one for POSSESSION. I want to get a handle on the book first :-) All these interviews and things are eating into writing time. But they are important too.

    Get better!
