Well, I've survived another Bell family picnic. I see a lot of these people once a year, and they all seem to change. Some bloat up because they've stopped dieting, and some slim down a little because they are trying to get back on track. I also met my husband's nephew's wife who my newest fan who'd said she read my book in two days--could not put it down. So, that was nice for the both of us to officially meet and talk. And the corn was deeeelicious!
Today I'm home, because I will have Monday's off, and very happy to be rather than on the road with a bunch of crazy-ass drivers at NIU and beyond. Although I have an appointment with my hygienist who has to finish the job of scraping my teeth, I'd still rather be in the chair of a dentist's office, enduring excruciating pain than driving a Huskie bus for NIU students. Oh, the first day . . . yeah. I'm happy to not be there when thousands of students walk out in front of you, jump into their cars and think they're going to find a parking spot.
So, I've just halted work on the 4th book to come and say hi to you all, and I've gone and checked a few places out, too.
Now that I'm back to 7 hours of work--which translates to 8--I will have less time to stop by and see all of you and post, but I'll do my best.
