Life can come at us pretty hard and it slammed me last Thursday night when my former husband broke his femur, and it was a pretty serious break. Had to be rushed to the hospital and while he waited for the ambulance held his broken thigh bone to make sure it didn’t puncture an artery. The boys were supposed to be with him for the weekend while I powered out the rest of my novel.
It’s amazing how rapidly things can change and how even small bumps become hurdles. I didn’t fall apart but I kind of went numb. I was worried for him. Worried for the boys. Worried for the future. And forgot all kinds of important things.
One of the things I forgot to do (besides work on my novel) was post the info about tonight’s event in Kirkland. I feel terrible for Star Guild, the organization that’s hosting the fundraiser, as I’d promised them I’d publicize the event on my site and blog and yet here it is, three hours until the event starts and I only now remembered what I failed to do!
So if you get this, and if you can make time in your busy evening, please join me from 7 pm – 8:30 pm at a beautiful new, custom-built show home in Kirkland’s Houghton neighborhood, currently listed by one of Star Guild’s members. The home has easy access off I405’s 70th St Exit, or via Lake Washington Blvd NE. Parking is on the street. For more information about the home, please view the listing here.
The Star Guild ranks as one of the top contributing guilds among the nearly 500 guilds in the Seattle Children’s Hospital Guild Association. They currently have over 70 members and to date, have given over $350,000 for uncompensated care at Seattle Children’s Hospital. It’s a great group of ladies–I’ve worked with them before–and tonight promises to be just as fun as before. They’ll be serving light hors d’oeuvres and wine and all they are asking for is a suggested $5 cash donation to attend the event to help cover basic costs. By attending you’ll help support Star Guild and raise money for Seattle Children’s Hospital uncompensated care, and if you purchase any of my books, all funds from my books goes straight to the Children’s Hospital uncompensated care fund. You can buy books by cash, checks and credit cards, and yes, I’m there all evening!
Please come and hang out with me!
