on, get lively
I don't follow Desparate Housewives...
...but I've seen enough of the show to believe that no way in hell could I be this person:
Congratulations! You are Bree Van De Kamp, the
Martha Stewart on steroids, whose family is
about to mutiny.
Which Desperate Housewife are you?

Wouldn't you know, my parents, the Jaguars season ticket holders, couldn't get Super Bowl tix for the game in Jax in 2005, and guess who's doing the halftime show? Paulie! Last time Paulie played the Gator Bowl (now Alltel Stadium) was, I think, 1964, when Hurricane Dora threatened to cancel the Beatles concert. Gah!
At long last, A Summer Knight's Tale by Ronda Chervin and Gene Grandy is available again, this time in print. New cover, too, designed by moi. Just in time for Christmas.

Wish me luck. Today is Chesapeake Bay Academy's Festival of the Book, and I'm signing copies of Pithed. Let's see if I sell any.
Never hurts to think ahead:

The Internet equivalent of the slide show
Where I lock the doors and force you to sit through picture after picture of my precious snookums:
Going home from the hospital
Playing peek-a-boo with Daddy
On the Boppy pillow. I love that pillow. I don't what pioneer moms did without them.
It was a fluke. Although, she's not waking every two hours anymore since we instituted a more structured feeding schedule. A few weeks ago we were feeding nearly every time she cried, which was bad because she got caught up in cluster feeding. I think we're getting the hang of it now, but I dread going back to work after Thanksgiving.
Speaking of, this will be our first turkey day at home, ever. We want her schedule solidified before we start with the overnight trips, and the best part is we're going out to eat, so no cleanup for me!
Would you believe she slept through the night? From eleven to eight this morning. Please tell me it's not a fluke.
Crossing the Border
My Borders Bookstore experiment worked. I successfully ordered a copy of Pithed and it's at the store waiting for me. So any bookstore that tells you they can't order my book is mistaken. Order it, now. Or my child will go without booties. It's cold outside. You don't want that.
Prayers for discernment going out today. If things go as planned there are big decisions to make soon. Let's hope they're the right ones.
Truly the fun part of motherhood is anticipating when accidents are going to happen, and expecting the unexpected. Like yesterday, when I changed Genny's diaper before feeding her, as you're supposed to do. Got the clean diaper on her, and in two seconds she messed it up again. Malc happened to be standing there and howled with laughter. Then he left me to clean up the mess again. She's his daughter, all right.
Just a reminder, vote early, vote often.
John Mallon forwards notice of Inside the Vatican's guide for Catholic voters, now available in PDF format, for you undecided.
Genny T. still has her days and nights mixed up. She likes riding in the car, though. If only gas didn't cost so much.
