Hope this is the view from my window!

WOOT! I'm packing for The House of Mouse! I'm going to be away in Florida tomorrow until the 7th, so the newsletter will be late and the purchase links for Mating Games won't be added to my website until the 8th. The pre-order links will remain and should still lead to the books. I'm going to double-check today and make sure they're all up; the only one that should need to be added would be MBaM. Don't quote me on that though, I could be wrong. When you're being nibbled to death by ducks it's hard to remember the cheese.

Don't go there. That way leads to my thought processes, and people have been known to go mad when they do.

I'm gathering all the extras that need to be packed, like chargers, medicines, muzzles for my little monkeys. You know, the usual. My kitchen table looks like a bargain sale at Happy Harry's. I still need to dye my hair, do my toenails and pack books on my Nook. Tomorrow the dog and the cat go into doggie/kitty daycare and the kids have a half-day, which worked out great for us.

Odds are good I won't be blogging or doing anything on-line for the next eleven days or so. I think internet connections will be spotty at best, non-existent at worst. If it's absolutely necessary to get hold of me I'll be spot-checking my email on my cell phone, but answering them will be a stone cold bitch and might take me a while since the keyboard on the phone wasn't designed with arthritics in mind. I promise I'll post a few pics of me and my family once I get home.

Have fun, and I'll talk to you all when I get back!
