Days like today...

     Sometimes, I feel like I can't even give my book away. I am so frustrated by the lack of interest in my book! I have had it professionally edited and illustrated (the cover)...

     Blah! I am just no good at marketing or writing my own blurbs. I don't know that I can stretch my budget to include a blurb writer though...I just don't think I can do it...

     AND...pity party is over in three, two, one...

     The good news is this...a wonderful person that I met on GR (won't mention names because I do not have their permission to post that here) directed me to the leaders of a few other groups that do R2R (read to review). I actually got a response back from one of them and my book was put up in their group for an R2R!
     So far, two people are interested....sigh....I am going to hold my head high and love the hell out of those two people for being willing to give my books a shot! They both have their books in hand (well...in ereader's) and I am honestly excited to learn what they think of the books! Good or bad I am always excited to hear what someone thinks of my writing. :)

     In other news, my kids have been horrifying butts today. Okay, fine. Horrifying may be too strong of a word...how about...humm, imps? Yep, that works. They have been imps all day. Their friend from next door was about to leave in a huff and I stopped her and asked her what was wrong. She said...
     "Whenever I come over here, they never get along!" (she is seven)
     I was just like, aww...honey...they never get along. We talked for a few minutes and she decided to give my girls a second chance at sharing her =) What a sweetie pie!

     My husband has spent his day outside (BRRRR.) in 10 degree weather, changing his back brakes. Of course it couldn't go smoothly and quickly. Issues after issues....but the good news for him is that I am such a kick ass wife!!! He has warm gloves, hats, and really nice boots to wear....because I make sure my family has what they need.

     Me, I have spent my day being bored out of my mind. I am not cut out for this inactivity! I am plotting my workouts and trying to figure out what I can do without a foot (Yes, my foot is still there...but I am allowed to put ZERO pounds on it). 
     I tried to weigh myself this morning....with one foot...and that is a joke! I weigh somewhere between 201 and 228 pounds...the scale apparently needs both feet to read accurately.

     Sigh, so I feel much better today than I have this last week....My ass still hurts from sitting on it all the time, my shoulders hurt from using the crutches, my back hurts from bending over the knee caddy all day...but hey, three weeks down....19 days to go...EGADS!!! I am gonna kill my doctor if he makes me wait the full 19 days to walk! I am going bat shit crazy here!!!

     I can't think of anything else to blog about at the moment....So, ta-ta...
