I'm Back

and what a normal day it was. I think today was the first back to normal day I have had in a month. What with Pissy being in, getting ready for ISOCAN, the raging case of pinkeye, going to ISOCAN and coming back home it has just been hectic to say the least. Don't get me wrong it has been a ton of fun but I'm ready for routine again. Yes, I am very much a creature of habit and I get overwhelmed when I am out of my space.

Today I was so in my space it was not even funny. I got up, went to the bookstore, chatted up and pretty much made a fool of myself around all the customers, went to the store, came home and read until Thing 1 and his girlfriend came over. To me, this was a perfect day. Ok, I do find it odd that I can laugh and joke around with strangers at the bookstore but I had such a hard time at ISOCAN. Don't get me wrong I had a ton of fun and I met a LOT of great people but it was just so hard to be me. I sat back and watched a lot. I have never been shy like I was there. It was still fun and I would go again, that's for sure but I would not be a wallflower.

I think I would go just so I could have someone make my bed every day again. I loved this. What a luxury to have someone come in and straighten up for you. I really need to get my fiances in order and have someone do that for me. Seriously, I think that could be my paper thing....or maybe not but it is my fantasy now....that and s e x but that is for another topic and another day.

I did pick up a couple new books this weekend. I grabbed another Anita Blake novel and the boy was in heaven. I did not even get it all the way out of the bag before he had it out of my hand and was into the first chapter. He is so funny with them. It really does my heart good to sit and watch him read. I love how his emotions play over his face....but don't tell him that. He doesn't know that I watch him like that.

Other big news at the bookstore is that they asked me to host the Eragon party. Eeekkk. I know it's not going to be a Breaking Dawn party but still it makes me nervous. The good news is there are only about 130 people signed up for the book so it will not be as wild at 300 squealing girls....I will miss that *L* I need to start checking around to see what kind of things other stores are doing. NO, I am not stealing I am just getting ideas.

OOHHH and I did get the ok for my last book discussion for the Twilight Series. I saw one of MY girls today and she was really really excited about it too. I can not wait to hear what they have to say about the last book. Yeah, yeah, I'm a goober and it's not so much about the books as about the discussion that goes with it.

Ok tomorrow is going to be a long day and I have to work at both places so I'm off to unmade bed, with the unfluffed pillows and the ratty cat who loves me even if I do kiss her too much and scratch her when she is trying to sleep. *chuckling* she has no idea how well loved she is....lucky ole cat. Off to bed now...night all...sleep well!
