C.K. Brant . . . Come On Down!

I'm feelin' a bit like The Price is Right today. Man, I loved that show. I loved Bob, too!

Anyway, back to the task at hand. C.K. Bryant, you won a copy of The Thorn by Daron Fraley! Send me your snail mail address please!

So, today. Hmm . . . today was interesting. Emotional. First I was mad, mad, mad. Ticked off to the point that well . . . let's not go into that. Then I cleaned. At least there are good results when I get mad. My hubby loves it when I scrub the toilets - as long as he's not the reason I'm doing the scrubbing.

After the scrubbing, I talked/vented to my hubby. Cried. Cried a little more. Then I ate. Yep - that's the other side of being mad. I didn't over do it or anything cause my tummy was still too twisted up from crying. But I had a few pieces of Dove chocolate, which always soothes the soul. Then I had yummy tortilla chips with fiesta ranch dip. Yum. Not exactly a combination any would choose - except either a pregnant woman or one very upset chickie. FYI - I'm not prego.

About mid-afternoon, I was calm enough to move on with my day. I had finally removed the nasty, frustrated thoughts and was able to focus and be productive. My girlfriend, Heather Justesen, and I talked on the phone for about two hours, firming up our summer book tour dates and locations. Tomorrow we'll start booking the signings and posting them on our websites and blogs. I'm so excited! Yes - I've moved on to excitement.  A much better emotion, don't you agree?

Cities we are currently booking:
Phoenix, San Diego, the Los Angeles area, Sacramento or Bakersfield, Twin Falls, Pocatello, Idaho Falls, Rexburg, the Salt Lake City area . . . and more!

And now I am going to post this and shut down my computer. We have quite the Kansas thunderstorm brewing.

You are one strong woman, Danyelle! I can't wait to see you this summer, and I hope we can sign in a few stores together.

HOLY COW!! I need to check your blog more often. I'm a winner. Can't believe you didn't just email me, silly. Unless you seriously don't know that CKBRYANT is my pen name. Anyway, I will mail you my address.

Hugs

Christine
