After the Pitches: Days Nineteen, Twenty, and Twenty-One

Friday, Saturday, Sunday, August 27 – 29, 2010
Wow! Busy week. Rough week. I couldn’t write at all this week. My brain was on fire – and not in a good way (how could a brain on fire BE GOOD, anyway?).
Anyway, Friday found me slightly hung-over from the night before (CPK is EVIL) and extremely tired and lethargic. So, I read.
Saturday was WOW! busy, but I really enjoyed the day. The spouse and I went to Starbucks for fortification. Then, he went his way, and I went to my volunteer work at the Scholastic Bookfair Warehouse Sale! It was a BLAST! I was there for 8 hours and I met some awesome people, hung out with teachers and librarians and parents, and I got a gazillion free books. (For every hour you volunteer, you get $10 worth of bookfair books, which are discounted to begin with). I got MOCKINGJAY!! For 50% off!!! And, in essence, FREE, because no money exchanged hands – I just worked my bootie off for it! Check out some of these titles: Killer Pizza, Suddenly Supernatural, SLOB! Awesome. I also picked up Mo Willems’ Pigeon Wants a Puppy! I’m a sucker for Willems.
Sunday was a rough day. It would have been my folks’ anniversary, so we had mum over. And we had crock pot meatloaf, frozen yogurt pie, and watched Public Enemies.
Writing? Nope. Gads.
