786. Big News

My book, "Mom's Had A Rough Day," was reviewed in a magazine!  Not just any magazine, but my favorite magazine:  Northern Virginia Magazine’s “Best of 2012” issue!! 

They emailed me a few months ago and told me I would be in their June issue.  I have been waiting as fast as I could, and finally, it is June.  I zipped right out to my local grocery store and bought five copies.  Or five dozen.  Might've bought five dozen.    

Guess what?  I am on page 20.  I am on the “Culture” page. 




Me.  Culture.  I know! 

So, here it is: 


I am pretty much floating.  I think this feeling will last all year.

  4. I recently let my mom borrow your book (I know, I know, I should've made her go buy it full price... but she gave me that old "I just bought you a week's worth of groceries" argument). She often inquires about "your blogger-friend, you know, the one who wrote the book?" Now I can show her how famous you are!

  6. Congratulations! I'd imagine that would rank right up there with winning the lottery, sleeping with (insert sexy actor's name here), and attending the wedding of a little couple!

  15. I will never be on a culture page unless someone writes an article about a blogger who is completely without culture, just like a specimen in a petri dish that doesn't grow fungus or anything else cool.

    Love,
    Janie Lola

    P.S. Crack You Whip made me visit you.

When you write a comment, it makes me feel like I won the lottery or at the very least like I ate an ice-cream sundae. (This has nothing to do with the fact that I did just eat an ice-cream sundae.)
