I arrived back in Seattle late last night and Mac couldn’t cope with sleeping in his crib in his own room. I tried to let him cry it out since it was after eleven pm but after 30 minutes of him crying hard I retrieved him and put him into bed with me. He clung to me for a long time absolutely terrified from being in his room on his own after nine days of sleeping with dad and mom in various hotel rooms. But now it’s time to settle back into our Bellevue routine and hopefully some sleep because I’m tired!
I did have an amazing Texas Tour though, as you can tell from the fun Katy Pi Phi alum crew that joined me at Katy Budget Books for my Western party. The Buckaroos, the band that played during the party was awesome and I think I enjoyed the BBQ and music more than anyone. Such a fun party and a great kickoff to my Houston area events.
At every Houston event–particularly the Mom’s Morning out at Blue Willow Books on Monday morning– I met new people as well as greeted readers who’ve kept me company on my blog and through email for the last few years. It’s always so interesting to hear how readers first found me, too. Lots of my readers discovered me through Redbook Magazine‘s excerpt of Flirting with Forty in the summer of 2006 while others happened across Odd Mom Out or Mrs. Perfect in a library or bookstore. Regardless of how you found me, I’m so glad you did.
And now that I’m back home I’m gearing up for another half dozen events. I’ll be doing special reader lunches and dinners in these cities below so stay tuned for details if you live in or around:
- Spokane, WA (Thurs, Oct 28th)
- Atlanta, GA (Thurs, Nov 11th)
- Frankfort, KY (Sat, Nov 13th)
- Wachtung, NJ (Sun, Nov 14th)
