I must say that I am glad to NOT have received any awards this week. Not that I am ungrateful for such things, but it is a lot of work to run the award circuit. If you've been a multiple recipient, you know what I mean and you are nodding your head vigorously right now. I will be dedicating a whole blog post to the subject of awards someday and I have an idea to create my own award. You're gonna love it, especially if you get one. All I have to do is come up with the name, which is far more difficult than I imagined.
Note: The piece ended up being featured by BlogHer. Read it here.
I am grateful that I have sold a puppy this week and since the lady forgot to bring cash and wrote me an out of state check, I hope that it doesn't bounce. She drove two and a half hours one way to pick it up, so I couldn't very well make her run back home for cash. There was a scripture on the check, but you and I both know that doesn't mean diddle. Note to self: add "CASH ONLY" to eBay Classifieds ad. Also, I have someone driving nearly five hours on Saturday to pick up the other dog, who will become an Alpaca guard dog. How sweet! I love my puppies. I will be sad when they're all gone, but I will be less busy until the next litter.

I want to Woo-Hoo about the fact that I had to see the woman whose rights we terminated and whose children I adopted (my husband's ex-wife) this weekend and all went well. It was a stressful decision to put ourselves and our children in that position after about 7 years of purposely keeping distance. I looked hot, so that helped, but at the cost of wearing high heels. Now my back is killing me. Still, totally worth it.
I want to Woo-Hoo that my first guest post will hit this month on www.RachelintheOC.com. See the post here. I honestly couldn't be more excited to be featured by a #1 Amazon Bestselling author! I know you will be shocked, but it isn't a humor piece either (by request). Yeah, there is more to me than funny fluff, people! This piece will not be suitable for young readers or those who don't want to hear a story about a really crappy thing that happened to me in high school, so consider yourself warned.
I want to Woo-Hoo that I have some really awesome posts planned in the future. Funny ones, controversial ones, serious ones. I always love hearing your comments, so please don't hesitate to put your two cents in. I will respond to every one until I'm too famous (ha ha - wait, I was just dreaming there for a second). I just received some business cards for Everyday Underwear. Now I can just hand those out when my husband brags to people that "my wife's a writer." I love that guy. P.S. I will do a whole post about him someday too. I couldn't be more proud of him either.
And how was your week?
