How can it be Monday? Where did the weekend go? I’ve got muscles I didn’t know I had and they ache. The painting is done in the new house with the exception of a small touch-up. I got paint on a little area of the crown molding in what will be my office.
The place is clean but me being who I am, I still needed to wipe out all the cabinets, clean the wood floors, and clean the bathroom before the movers come on Thursday. Science Guy and I spent the weekend getting all of the above accomplished. I must say, I’m tired, achy, and really proud of how it looks.
We’re taking boxes over each night this week that we won’t let the movers move and putting that stuff away. Then there are my clothes and shoes. Those go tonight. Yep, everything that hangs with the exception of the outfits I’ll need for work for the next two days and then jeans for Thursday. For those of you who know me well, you know this is a hard thing for me. I never decide what I’m going to wear until the morning when I’m getting ready.
All of that to give you an update and okay try to give you an excuse for not writing this week. I finally had to give myself a break and know that next week I’ll settle back in and write, write, write. So, my check in would be: zip, zilch, nadda.
Contest time. This week I’m excited to be giving away Karen Rose’s new book DIE FOR ME. The book will be available August 28, 2007.
Karen Rose is a Rita award winning, USA bestselling author of Romantic Suspense. If you like suspense then this is the book for you. Her stories are completely real and believable while down right scary. Tip: You might not want to read this before bed. :)
Here’s the back cover blurb:
COME TO ME
The first victim is found in a snow-covered Philadelphia field. Detective Vito Ciccotelli enlists the aid of archaeologist Sophie Johannsen to determine exactly what lies beneath the frozen ground. Despite years of unearthing things long buried, nothing can prepare Sophie for the matrix of graves dug with chilling precision. The victims buried there haunt her. But the empty graves terrify her – the killer isn’t done yet.
SCREAM FOR ME
He is cold and calculating, the master of a twisted game. Even with Vito and Sophie hot on his trail, he will not stop. One more empty grave must be filled, and one last scream must be heard – the scream of an archaeologist who is too close for comfort and too near to resist…
