On work-related news, I WILL be at Lori Foster's Reader/Author Get-Together (hastag #RAGT on Twitter). There was a day when I thought I wouldn't get to go, as I hadn't received my confirmation email. I got it the day after sobbing on my friend's virtual shoulder that I was going to miss seeing everyone who makes RAGT great.
So my con sechedule is set for the year. You can click the button my blog's sidebar marked Convention Schedule, or you can go to http://danamariebell.com/Appearances.html to see where I'll be in 2013.
As for the kitchen renovation, the only thing left to do is put the new fridge (which doesn't work and is being repaired today) in the new niche (which looks great). Everything else is done.
There's still a lot of unpacking to do to put everything back together, but it's looking really good. Dusty and I LOVE the floors. They're bamboo, and the color is even better in person.
It's exactly what I pictured, but with boxes.
