Whew! Did everyone have a good Easter? We had a great time at my parents' house. I have a ton of pics, over 160 taken, but I haven't had a chance to sort them yet. I'm going to burn them all to disk along with other family pics still sitting on my comp, and take them to the photo hut and have prints made. ^_^
Today is the first day of Oldest's Spring Break, and hubby also happened to be feeling sick. He stayed home, and I ended up making a day of sorts with Oldest. First I ran and cashed hubby's check - since we couldn't do it Friday - and then we went to post. I opened a Cora Zane PO box so I can do more giveaways and mail them directly. The getting of the PO box, of course, was a process that required two forms of ID, an electric bill stub to prove I live in the area, my voter reg card, and - oh yeah, a cheek swab for DNA processing. :P I did get my box though. Hehe.
After that, I took Oldest to the library. He misplaced his card, so I ended up checking out his books until we can go through his room and thoroughly search for it. I went and ran off some copies of some worksheets for a few friends, but I ended up bringing home an anthology called Many Bloody Returns, with stories by Charlaine Harris, Jim Butcher, Kelley Armstrong, and others. It looks pretty good.!
We ended up braving the buffet at Pizza Hut after the library. OMFG. We knew it would be nuts when we saw the church bus in the parking lot. We actually had to wait for a table, and it was one of those buffet things when you have to pile your plate high with food because the staff couldn't get it out there fast enough. Yikes! It was loud, it was shoulder to shoulder, and Oldest and I had a great time. We were eating off each other's plates and hoarding the pepperoni!! ^_^
Tomorrow I will be joining KM Frontain, Kelley Heckart, Nita Wick, and Esmerelda Bishop for an In The Gloaming loop chat at the Brenda Williamson Romance Party Group. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BrendaWilliamsonRomanceParty/?yguid=76804071

Well, I'm pretty tired so I'm going to call it a day. I need to park my hiney in the writer's seat tonight and finish up my stuff for Weirdly 2. Deadlines are fast approaching!
I hope you all had a great Monday. I'll pop around and visit you all later tonight!
