Well I’m still working on the high of having my cover art. It’s so fabulous. I just adore it. I can’t stop staring at it, nor can I stop petting it.

I printed up my little promo cards and found some keychains online for a little bit of money. I’m ready to buy those and get started printed the artwork up for them. Then it’s off to print up bookmarks sort of as a keepsake. Since it’s a e-book, it’s kind of hard to have a bookmark.

Argh there is so much I need to do! And I feel like I’m running out of time. Luckily, the contest will be done very soon and the winners will be decided. Looks like I will still need to find a couple of judges, but other than that, we’re doing good. I have most of the entries check and validated their math was correct (let’s face it – some writers just can’t add – heck, I can’t!).

Had Sweetie Boy last night and we went to his favorite restaurant – Applebee’s! I don’t get it – the kid loves the place. It’s weird. He had his usual – a corn dog – and I had something new – a club sandwich. Not sure I really liked it all that well since it had a weird hickory sauce on it. I got full after only a half and brought the rest home.

The cat has decided since it’s nice out, it’s time to be frisky. And he wants to sit in the window when it’s dark outside. Silly kitty. I’m not letting everyone and their mother see me in here. I bought him a cat bed and he’s just almost too big for it. Not that he’s overweight, he’s not. He’s just a big old Tom.

And speaking of Tom – Sweetie Boy and I always watch Tom & Jerry together when I have him on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It’s fun. He climbs up in my lap and we cuddle while we watch it. He’s a sweet kiddo.

My left palm is itching – does that mean I’m about to part with MORE money? Or is that the hand that means I’ll be GETTING more money. Hm. I can’t remember. Hope it’s the latter tho.

And before I depart the area…here’s the little postcards I made up. I’m passing them out to everyone I can. 🙂

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
