Day 709

There are times we set too high of expectations and things just can't match up. Whether it's a vacation, a new piece of jewelry, or even a job, what we expect and what really happens wind up being two different things.

Except when it comes to the excitement of having a book well-received.

Everyone who knows me knows I'm pretty laid back. I don't get too excited about much, I don't get frustrated much, I just kind of keep it all in. But yesterday I didn't behave as I typically would. I really was excited. Couldn't contain myself as you could probably tell from all the exclamation points I used in my writing yesterday.

Thank you everyone for your support (and your downloads). If you get a chance to put a review of it on Amazon, I'd love to hear what you thought.

The final free download number was 2,250. While that and the #2 rankings were super exciting, now that the book is no longer free my ranking is dropping. But I'm just fine with that since the whole point was just getting it out there. So back to reality, back to finding a picture amid the hustle and bustle of everything.

Good thing I (finally) had a day off, a day to spend at home all by myself. Not exactly. I worked a while on the computer then went to my recliner. Guess who I found there? The cat.

I later went into the sewing room and who did I find in my scrap basket again? The cat.

After dinner, hubby went to the freezer to get some ice cream. Guess who took his spot? Yep, you know who. (Notice how she won't pay attention to us when we're trying to scoot her along?)
