Thursday 13 - Why My List Isn't Better This Week

1. I just flew in last night from my trip to Amsterdam and Brussels. Boy, are my arms tired (along with everything else.)

2. I'm still on Amsterdam time. Right now, it's six hours ahead there. So my body is still adjusting, and I'm beat.

3. We walked and walked and walked. That's what I love about Europe. But it takes its toll on normally sedentary bodies. ;) So I'm tired from that.

4. I can't wait to share my photos from the trip, but there are a LOT of them, so I'm spending time getting those together.

5. After only one week, our DVR is 100% full. I've got to make room for new stuff, and get caught up on Lost and Heroes before someone spoils it for me.

6. Do you know how much dirty laundry can come out of a small suitcase?

7. There is no food in the kitchen for eating. None. Except the milk I bought on the way home last night. Grocery store, here we come.

8. We also shot a lot of video. Need to upload that (takes forever).

9. Then we need to edit the video. Also takes a while. But all for your enjoyment!

10. Need to prepare to go to Boston next week, pitching my book to some agents at Connecticut Fiction Fest!

11. I have a ton of books that I need to get to reading!

12. Came back from vacation to job cuts at work. Spared this time, but still nervous. Grateful and feel guilty for being okay, too. So I need to put in special extra effort.

13. Still need to do some promoting work for \THE LIST to get more people to check it out!

Home of the new Thursday 13


  1. Whew on #12. That's never good.

    To see you return from vacation and start blogging so quickly shows me one thing...You are addicted! LOL!

    When we return from vacation I just park our bags in the laundry room and empty them right there. Course since our bedrooms are upstairs & the laundry room is down stairs, I'm just saving myself the trip.

    you didn't mention Pooh is the old man?

  2. I don't understand that suitcase thing. It all seems to fit at the start of the trip.

    Give my regards to my hometown!

  3. Pooh Bear is good. He's a little clingy when we come back from vacation, but at least he's happy to see us!

  4. Looks like you've got a full schedule.

  5. I'm so delighted that you took such a nice vacation - good for you! :)

  6. Looking forward to the pics. Glad you had a good time and avoided the job cut. Happy T13!

  7. Hey- at least you got a vacation.
    Hang in there.

  8. Oh, I'm so jealous! I wish I could go on vacation in Europe too! I'm glad you had lots of fun! Can't wait to see the pics!

  9. Ahhhhh....I wanna travel now! Great list. :)

  10. Looking forward to seeing some of your vacation pics. Nice spotlight in The Quill, BTW. ;)

  11. The only lousy part of travelling is getting home to find all that's waiting for you. I was there last week; I know the pain!


Have you bought your copy of "The List" yet? Will you buy one if I beg? Pleeeeeeeze?
