Hey, guess what?
My book was released today! It was released!
Which makes it sound like some sort of wild animal.
But anyway. It’s available in stores and online and such. Today!
So naturally, we’ll be celebrating by throwing the dog a party again.
That and enjoying my favorite part of the holiday season. When it’s over. No really. This might mean we’re doing the whole holiday marathon wrong, but we all look forward to the time after almost as much as the time during. No agendas, no going anywhere, no expectations. Just enjoying one of life’s most precious limited resources. Time. Enjoying the luxury of time. Time with family. Time to eat leftover cookies and wear pajamas all day long.
I hope you have a wonderful New Year’s Eve tomorrow night if you do that sort of thing. We’ll be giving the kids champagne (sparkling cider) and making them dress up (pajamas) and then watching the ball drop on the east coast. Because we’re on the west coast. Which means we get to celebrate at 9pm, put the kids to bed and then open a real, actual bottle of champagne for just the two of us.
Yay! We’ll get to enjoy the luxury of time alone!
I hope you get to enjoy some of your own.
Happy New Year! See you in 2015!
Marriage: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures is available from these places if you want a funny book to accompany your glass of wine. I highly recommend that pairing. Also goes nicely with a cozy blanket and a cup of tea.
