A couple of notes:
1. I will be signing books at the Authorpalooza event at the Sandy Barnes&Noble this Saturday from 1-3 pm. So, if you didn't get a chance to get your copy of EVERNEATH signed, here's your opportunity!
2. I will be on several panels at the upcoming LTUE Conference. If you are a writer, or other creative type, there really isn't a better value than this conference, because it's only $30, and it lasts for three days!
The conference takes place Feb 9-11 at the UVU campus in Orem.
3. I know today is Thursday, and I usually blog on Wednesday. And the last blog was Tuesday, and I usually blog on Monday.
The reason for this is simple: There is a crack in the universe that has been following me around ever since I was a little girl, and sometimes it shifts my life one day to the right.
Or... that might've been an episode of Dr. Who. And the real (and boring) reason is... I'm swamped. I have a deadline on Monday. And this is the first time I've been revising while simultaneously trying to launch a book. I'm flailing a little bit.
Today, I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the things Kid B has been praying about lately. Many of you know Kid B has some delays, especially when it comes to language. But at night, he has been saying his own prayers.
|Kid C and Kid B|
The prayers always start out with:
"Heavenly father, thank you for this day."
And in the past week, that sentence has been followed by:
"... The babies are sleeping... so please be quiet..." (Yes, Heavenly Father, please keep it down)
"... I play Cut the Rope... Experience... I went next level..." (The big man will be so impressed)
"... I go to school today... Tuesday... January... 31st... two thousand twelve..." (because it's good to be specific)
"... please bless me to talk..." (I used to say this when I said the prayers)
"... Is it time for snack? Yes, you can have snack. I can have a snack? Yes! ..." (Sometimes he practices conversations he's heard that day)
I just imagine the guy on the receiving end of that prayer. I like to think he sets aside whatever amazing thing he is creating, sits back, and has a good chuckle.
