It's now official...I am starting to get caught up. I didn't realize how far I had got behind on my life over the past year until I started trying to get back into a "normal" groove. Understand...nothing about me is normal nor do I try and purport it as such, but I do, for the sake of appearances, try to create some semblance of order around here. BUT...when I see the Salvation Army circling the front lawn with coffee and donuts, I know it's time to get bizzy! I hope y'all haven't given up on me and left me for greener pastures, but I promise up and down, once I get May and June under my belt, I'll be a good little blogger. In the meantime I thought I would share some great things that will bribe, I mean interest y'all.I've made no secret of the fact that I am trying to write a book (which BTW is on the back burner as well). The only thing that would make me happier than seeing my own face on the back of a dust cover is to see someone I know. Kathie Truitt (who just happens to live in D.C AND writes the Hillbilly Debutante blog) is just that person. Friends, she is one of us (with maybe a little more interesting background than moi) who has written what sounds like a nail biter and a half. False Victim is based on a true story (hers) and could happen to any of us. I won't say too much because I wouldn't want to ruin the suspense for any of y'all. It's now available in advance copy here and will be in the bookstores soon. In the meantime, Kathie is living the life I can only dream of with book signings (insert big sigh here!). Huge congratulations Kathie...I'll be sending you a copy for your autograph soon...be sure and write "To Debbie, My best friend in the whole wide world, who I owe all my success to and who is the most beautiful woman in the world, with much love, Kathie"...'kay? (You know I'm just yankin' your chain, doncha darlin'?) How about some shopping and giveaways? I got a ton for y'all! Maureen at Cottage Panache is having an anniversary sale Saturday, May 15 from 10am till whenever. Gotta love those hours! I also have it from a little squirrel...make that birdie, that Lisa from Tarnished and Tattered will be there selling as well. Talk about a twofer! If you're in the area of 7277 Glenview Dr., Richland Hills, Texas...drop in and spend a minute or dollar! Either one...they'd just love to see you!
Now for the giveaways...I don't think these require any instructions...just click and hope! Anne at Fiona & Twig
Angela at Filigree Moon
FYI...these are all ending around my birthday and if y'all really love me, you'd see to it that I'm the winner of all three! I'm just saying! You might even get to see the Chubby Girl Happy Dance...that'd be something, huh?
Now for a word from our sponsors and a shameless plug for the Tulula Heads. Don't forget the big ol' Junk and Disorderly sale coming June 5th. I really do expect to see a lot of your pretty faces there....so does Cat Daddy! Hope I'm on your calendar and in your hearts 'cause y'all sure are on mine!
(For the record...I still don't have my computer back and I don't know if it's this laptop or Blogger...but nothing seems to be cooperating...if you catch my drift!)
I have one more little surprise up my skirt, but I'm keeping that one tucked in for just a little bit longer. After all...a lady never reveals too much too soon!
Now in the words of a famous pig...
That's all folks!
