So, almost everyone who would normally read this post is probably on her way to SF. But for the few of you holding down the fort at home…uh, hi! Bye!

In the past 24 hours, I’ve:
*Turned in my third book to my editor. Woohoo!
*Finished shopping and packing for conference in SF.
*Barely started shopping and packing for the family vacation (Mr. Dare’s going to have to pick up the slack on that one.)
*Put up a new look on my website – check it out! It’s still very much a work-in-progress, and there’s not a whole lot more there than there was before, but eventually there will be. Promise.

It’s currently 3:30 AM. I am so excited, I cannot sleep at all.
The goddess of sleep deprivation lives!

Hugs to all…I’ll try to report back from conference before leaving for the family vacay. Please send up good thoughts and prayers for Mr. Dare this week – he’ll need them.

    So pretty (just like you!). I link into your blog from your website on my favorites and was pleasantly surprised this morning. I hope you have a great convention and wow ’em all. I’ll be home writing trying not to be jealous, LOL. Have a good vacation too with the Darelings.

    I can’t wait to see you tomorrow! Have a safe trip and I’ll be sending sanity vibes Mr. Dare’s way. And also patience vibes for the Darelings. 🙂

    Suitcase is ready, shopping is done, finishing handouts today and then it’s a matter of shoving everything that’s left in the carry-on.

    Now, I’m off to check out this new book!
