Greetings and Salutations, reader-type folks. I have what could perhaps be the best news of the last two weeks -- it's payday! And, after paying the bills, the credit cards, the Christmas Club, gas for the vehicles, and my daughter for cleaning the house last week - I have a few bucks left! So I am going to celebrate by seeing P.S. Dump Your Boyfriend perform tonight at Bella Luna (as I mentioned yesterday) and I'm going to dance my rear-end off. It's been a hella-rotten day, and next week's going to be fairly strenuous as I am apparently opening four days by myself when I've never opened by myself before, so I'm going to enjoy this weekend to the fullest.
My friend Ben (which is not the name of a Ted Nugent song, though my husband thinks it is), mentioned to me in a comment a couple of days ago that the KINDLE software is also available for iPad, iPhone, and Android if you download the app, or whatever you people do with your fancy schmancy phones that do things other than call people. So if you don't have a Kindle and don't want the software on your computer, you can download it onto your shiny phone toy and then download my new book, "Women I've Been" to whatever device you happen to have that will do such a thing. (This is why Ben is my tech guy. I like to write, he likes to be... well, techy.)
The application for "Dollars for Scholars" is due at 4:15 today at Northridge High School. I know this because my son called me around 3:30 to tell me, and to ask if I'd be at home because he finally filled out the application and it needs a parent's signature. It's 4:03 right now and he's still not here to have me sign it. I really hope he didn't get in another quasi-accident like yesterday. Oh, wait, here he comes.
*Pause to sign*
Now he's on his way back to the school, and the other kids are excited to read my article in Family Magazine of Michiana's January 2011 issue which just came out today!
I've sold seven books so far :)
Okay, I need to get to writing another article... or perhaps a nap. Have a fantastic weekend!
