My kids now are going through their second out-of-state move in less than two years, their third in the last six. And if you’ve got children or nieces/nephews or moved around a lot growing up, you know it can wear on a family’s spirit. So rather than drag my young’ns across state lines, killing myself working while trying to take care of them as well as set up new digs and everything that accompanies relocation, this go-round I’ve decided to take time off to attend to their needs.
Sure, it means putting on hold that cool, final phase of the RBTB project I’ve been telling you about. But last night, hanging out with my kids -- playing Bananagrams here at the hotel where we’ll be staying the next two months until we close on our new house -- I realized they don’t just need more of my time since my husband, aka Male Perspective Guy, is on the road so much. I need a little more time with them; I’m looking forward to upping my daily simple, silly pleasure quotient.
Knowing how greatly I value being alive – remember, we just celebrated National Transplantation/Organ Donation Awareness Month – you’d think I’d make every day count. But sometimes even I need something to drag me to a screeching halt, to make me slow it down and remember there’ll always be more romances to write about, so there’s no reason not to sit back and do a little nothing but love on my family for awhile. Oh, and I’ll probably send out a newsletter or two.
When fall comes back around, I hope you’ll head back this way, too, as I reach out to you again to spend time dishing on all the great stuff romance books bring to our lives. I surely have loved what they – and you -- have brought to mine since 2005.
Before you head back out to the rest of your day – and enjoy your spring and summer -- you may wanna’ click here to take a listen to Black Sunshine’s powerful “Once In My Life,” my new favorite crank-the-karma tune. See you soon!
Encore! What do I suggest you read this summer? Anna Campbell’s “My Reckless Surrender,” Toni Blake’s “Sugar Creek ,” Julianne MacLean’s “The Mistress Diaries,” Mary Balogh’s “A Secret Affair,” Lori Handeland’s “Chaos Bites,” Michele Hauf’s “Her Vampire Husband,” Annie West’s “Forgotten Mistress, Secret Love-Child,” Kaki Warner’s “Open Country,” Lori Foster, et al benefit anthology “The Gift of Love.”
Encore due! Si! I will be watching Italia spank everyone in sight at the FIFA World Cup from South Africa. Azzurri Rules! But, sadly, I think Canna, he will not play…
Encore tre! Make sure you jump on board the RBTB NEWs so you don't miss out on any of the upcoming new stuff happening. You'll only get the advance deets if you take part. So please join here, won't you?!
