Tuesday I've Got Friday On My Mind

This is potty training central. Sigh. Time number three. This one a girl so I don’t have to constantly redirect penises, which is nice and far less messy. (Again, I know, so glamorous!!). I find myself giving praise for bodily functions, which is, um odd outside of sex, LOL, and no, I don’t give my dude stickers or clap for him, even when he’s got his A game working. She likes to bring her barbie in with her and put her on the back of her seat. Whatever. As long as she doesn’t fall in, I’m game with whatever will get her out of pull ups because after what seems like an eternity of changing diapers (and my oldest will be 10 in November so yeah, a looooong time, each time I get one trained I ended up having another)

I’m in that “in between books” stage. I’m trying to settle in and work on something. I just figured out the opening to dirty/bad/wrong last night and this morning. My husband always listens to me so patiently when I pelt him with my ideas, LOL. And he’s a great sounding board and helps me plot too. I’m also revising something so that’s a task which uses a different writerly brain muscle.

Chased is out in print today! Wheee! I don’t see it listed at My Bookstore and More yet though, grr. It is however, now shipping from barnes and noble!

Even more good news? To Do List will be in a print combo with Jaci Burton’s Unwrapped in September of next year. How freaking thrilled am I? More details as they’re worked out.

    Oh, Lauren, I feel the potty training pain. My 2.5 year old is going through it right now. I have lowerd myself to bribing him with chocolate, though. 😳 I recently caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror as I shouted, “Yay for poo poo on the potty!” It was scary.

    So gratful I’m done. It was scary for awhile especially when I would ask him if he had to go and his answer was that, “he would go tomorrow” 😥

    Whoohoo on Chased being out in print!

    And about not having to redirect lil guys. (I scrub more lil guy pee off the floor than I do anything else in my day. Wait, big guy is bad about it too)

    LOL – yeah, nothing like those mundane mom things to keep you grounded, huh?

    And Mandy, sigh, the bathroom floor is like, the eighth circle of hell. No penises are allowed in my master bathroom!

    Me: My god, you guys! Your penises are not that big in comparison to the giant toilet area, how can you miss?

    Them: Huh? I was playing on my DS while peeing, I didn’t hear you.
