Blue Sue sent me an email wondering what had happened to me – no I haven’t disappeared into the ether, there’s just not been much happening lately in my life. Sorry, but I live a boring life. Thankfully.
I guess the most exciting thing was going to the Sherrilyn Kenyon booksigning at the local Chapters last Monday. Now I’d met Sherrilyn before, but it was neat seeing her in my home town and watching the crowd gather about her. There were about three dozen people waiting before she was introduced; when we went back about 90 minutes later, there were even more. Not bad – someone who went to the Toronto booksigning said she got less than that there, though I’ve not had that confirmed. (I’m still wondering why out of all the cities in Canada she chose my small blue-collar town. I could see her going to London, or Guelph, or over to Montreal. But why here?)
The new fridge is working great – especially the ice/water dispenser. It’s cut down on pop use dramatically, and everyone is enthusiastically using it. We’ll see if the usage keeps up during the winter, LOL.
School starts here next week, but I’ve only got the one son still in school – he’s going into grade 11 on Tuesday. It will be nice to have my days to myself again. My eldest is settling in nicely to his new job. In fact it’s going so good he’s talking about moving out into his own apartment. That creates a mixed reaction of a disappointed ‘So who will I be able to go to for an honest opinion on what guys’ think/say/do?’ and Yippee!!!! Add in a dash of “OMG am I really old enough to be experiencing the empty nest? Yikes. ” Hmm, no, I think Yippeee!!! still wins out. Pity that I’m not going to be able to stay home and enjoy the quiet. Instead I’m going to have to go to work because I can’t afford to stay home anymore. I get to join those with an EDJ.
