T - 47 and a T + 1

T - 47. That's right. Only 47 days left until A Promise to Remember officially hits the shelves. For me, it's still one of those "I'll believe it when I actually see it" sort of things, as this has been a dream for so long. It should actually be less than 47 days, as the book prints on August 28th (13 days, but who's counting?) and will start shipping out soon thereafter. Woo hoo!

T + 1: While cleaning out the turtle tank yesterday, we put our red-eared slider in her outdoor tank (large Rubbermaid container) as usual. Somehow, she managed to climb up and over the walls, and has disappeared into the jungle that is our back yard. We live in southern California, so our back yard is roughly the size of a postage stamp. But... it's all bushes, ferns, and such, where a turtle can easily disappear and never be seen again. She's been missing for almost 24 hours now, in spite of intense searching. We're running the sprinklers often to make certain she doesn't dry out, but hope is starting to fade. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks for stopping by my very first blog post!!

K--Wow! I think I'm your first commenter. Is there a prize for that? Welcome to the blogosphere, my friend!

Julie

p.s. Your first post slightly resembles an algebraic equation, which makes this English major all shaky ;) lol

Thanks Julie, Amanda, and Kelli, for welcoming me into the world of blogdom, and being my first ever posters. You are in the katie's chronicles hall of fame (now there's a place you want to be, hmm?)I truly do appreciate you stopping by on my "opening day." Happy Thursday! (and keep praying for the turtle rescue efforts)
