The last part is a bad combination of words. I’d feel bad for cussing, but, well I don’t. Sigh.

The best thing about today is that my husband is coming home from his business trip. He’s been gone almost all week. I hate when he’s gone. It’s hard to sleep when he’s not here and the kids are wilder than normal too. And I like talking to him and snuggling with him. Plus he spoils me and he smells good.

I usually do book talk on Fridays but the truth is, I haven’t read much lately because I’ve been editing and revising, stressing and cleaning up chocolate powder and then my boys’ bathroom. Seriously, their packages are not that big in comparison to the size of the toilet bowl, how hard is it to hit the target? Gah!

But I have managed to get about halfway through Eileen Wilks’ Blood Lines and it’s so GOOOOOOD! I love the world she’s created with this series, creative, unique and Rule? Oh man, is he like the most fabulous hero or what? I love how she’s got multiple storylines but I never feel cheated or confused. Takes a skillful hand to do that. Anyway, when I finish up, I’ll do a review here.

Oh! But a lovely bright spot in my week? I won an ARC from Alison Kent of her upcoming book The Perfect Stranger wooo! Not getting gushy here so she won’t think I’m a stalker or anything, but I’m a big fan so this is very cool.

    My new saying: Stalk On. Get it? Huh, Huh? Oh, hell, never mind.

    Regarding boys and toilets – resign yourself, no matter how old they get: 1. their aim never improves and 2. they can’t freakin remember to put the seat down even if you chase them with the toiletbowl scrub brush. Well, not entirely true – maybe when they marry they suddenly develop aim. I’ll let you know and yes, i’ll ask their wives.

    LOL! Well, RT is going to be a challenge with all those authors I’ve adored over the years all in one place. And I think my agent will be there too, I’ve met her already but I still love her to death.

    And my husband is good at aim, thank god. Really, thank his mother. But the boys, eye roll. It’s partly because they stand in front of the toilet that makes them face a mirror and you know how that goes. Making faces, singing songs, Pokemon battles, all while their penises are like silly soakers all over the place.

    Although our house is the “Old Man Interesting” house, with two sons, I do appreciate the ease of cleaning under and around the wall mounted toilets.

    I’m REALLY looking forward to RT – I’ll probably be the poster child of Fanatic Fan Girls everywhere!

    Eileen is so very good in this new series. I shouted from the rooftops after I read the first book. I wanted everyone to go out and buy it. Still do. I think her series is every bit as good as the other top paranormal gals out there.
