I meant to update my blog yesterday, but I was exhausted and fell asleep before I was able to do it.
First thing after dropping the kids off at school, I went to the bookstore with my friend because she INSISTED on running out and buying the book with me so she could brag to everyone. It was pretty cool seeing my book on the shelf of the store! The employees there congratulated me and everything.
My book on an actual book shelf at an actual book store! Woo Hoo!
My friend, Ginny with Clay and her goddaughter, Brooklyn.
I got home, threw some Happy Meals at the kids and took Clay to school early so I could have a little conference with his teachers. On my way out of the school, I twisted my left ankle and dropped like a rock, landing on my right knee. I honestly didn't think I'd be able to stand up. My ankle hurt so badly, but I was on a tight schedule, so I limped on out to my car and hightailed it to an appointment about 45 minutes away.
I came home and had just enough time to pee before grabbing Jackson and rushing him to his doctor's appointment.
I texted Savannah on the way and begged her to mix up the meatloaf and throw it in the oven. (She did an awesome job, by the way!)
I got home as Savannah was putting dinner on the table. Thankfully Joe took Austin to baseball practice. When he got back, I, ran (or more like hobbled) to Target for diapers and soap and toothpaste and stuff. I suppose I could've put off the Target run for a little while longer, but I had already been using dishcloths as diapers and giving the kids gum instead of making them brush their teeth for like a week so off I went.
I woke up this morning with a stuffy nose because I always get sick before speaking in public. It's tradition. So, come on out and see me sneeze all over the place while I limp around like an idiot, because I don't have time to go to the doctor for my foot, at the book signing on Saturday!
Such is the glamorous life of an author. Well, at least when the author is a mom first. :)
