On The Sidelines

It’s been busy. So, so, so busy. And chaotic. But boys are thrilled to have their bedrooms back and I’m glad to be in my home again but camping out in an unfinished bedroom, and trying to minimize the smell of primer and glue and wood stain, especially as I worry about all the fumes and Mac, who still sleeps next to me in his car seat and stroller.

Fortunately, Mac is developing into a very happy little boy. I love his personality. He loves to smile and shout to get attention. Mac also spends a lot of time watching his brothers play sports. Every Saturday morning means two hours of water polo and an hour of soccer. Every couple of weeks Jake has a polo tournament which means 4-7 hours of water polo in one or two days. Thank goodness Mac likes people and people watching.

I’m hosting two events this weekend–one on Friday night, another on Sunday morning–and then giving a workshop with brilliant Megan Crane in the Greater Seattle area on Tuesday night for the Eastside Chapter’s November meeting. Megan Crane is such a talented writer and a wonderful teacher and if you can make our Tuesday workshop, do come. All the workshop details are on the event page of my website.  We’d love to see you there!

And finally, if you’re in the Bellevue/Seattle area, save the date of December 2nd because I’m doing a great big book party for Easy On The Eyes. Instead of having the party after the event, this time I’m hosting a fun, festive cocktail party from 5-7 pm at Ooba’s prior, with the reading, discussion and signing immediately after at the Bellevue Barnes & Noble. Beautiful, official invites are going out in the mail in the next week or so, so make sure you’re on the invite list! If you’ve received an invite from me in the past, you know you’re covered but if you’re in doubt, shoot me a private email with your name and address and I’ll get you added, or scoop the info from my website’s event page, grab your reading group or a couple of friends, and join me for champagne cocktails and yummy appetizers on the 2nd. It’s really going to be a fun holiday party and I’ve got awesome treat bags and presents for all my readers and friends attending!  So save the date, and  please come and celebrate with me.  It won’t be the same without you!
