Two Weeks to RT!

Wow! Yup, only two weeks to go and I will be sprawled in a hotel room in Chicago, surrounded by chaos and wishing I were already asleep.

Yes, I do know how it goes for me!

I will also have finished my chocolate fast, most likely with a York Peppermint Patti, bought this week by my husband, who I had forgotten to inform of my chocolate fast. Sweet man! He hid it from me and said he’d tell me where it was the day I leave. Easter Sunday. I figure it will be a real nice way to display my control. I mean, there ain’t a lot of chocolate in a York Peppermint Patti.

How have I done it? Struggling. And cashews. And other sweet treats. I think I’m going to do my best to cut back on the extra sweets this week. I’m allowed, but no reason to go overboard just because I’m not eating chocolate.

I’m doing well staying away from the fast food. Five lunches and no Taco Bell, no Carls Jr., none of them. One day I had Subway and I am eating at local establishments. I mean, the fish tacos at Los Gallos are to die for. And just grilled fish, fresh salsa and small corn tortillas. Wondrous!

I will be ready for RT and I’m already feeling lighter and less bloated. Nope, I am not weighing myself, just going by how I feel.

The swag is shipped and arrived…but I’m still cutting out temporary tattoos!

This was one of the funnest things I put together. My author trading cards. Yup, no individual book cards, but I had a blast putting these together!

This is one card, front and back. If you’d like one sent to you, send my your snail mail and I’ll pop one in the mail to you!


  1. I love your author cards! So Cute!

    Wish I could be there with you but I know you’ll be so busy I probably would have been in the way. Make sure you take lots of pics of your promo guy and your workshop!

  2. I’m thinking ahead to next year…if the ‘alien’ stuff sells, maybe I’ll have Robert do one of me being ‘abducted’ to a spaceship, with the kraken reaching up to pull me back to earth… 😉

    One of these years, you’ll make it back to RT!
