Peeking Out

Hello all.

It has been quite some time since I’ve written. My bad.

I got home from my 10 week book tour/New Orleans trip. Since that time I have been doing a lot of bonding with my couch and TV. I’m actually sore today from laying down for so many hours. Sore. That is fantastic.

I don’t really know what to do with myself entirely.

Since December, and probably even before that, I’ve been planning or doing this book tour thing. At the same time I’ve been doing my real job as well, as mortgages are fun things to pay sometimes. I hear. So now I’m done with the planning and the trip. And all that is left is my real work.

There are a lot of hours in the day.

When you don’t have any morning shows to do, or book events to go to, or random groups of people to talk to, or 500 miles to drive, or 25 people to organize in New Orleans, or 25 meals to eat in New Orleans, or ulcers to get.

I’m forcing myself to take a moment to breathe a little, to be okay with the calm for a second at least. My house is quiet. It hasn’t been quiet near me for months. It’s a weird sound to get used to.

There are still a lot more things on the List of Things to Do. So I will not be calm for long. But I’m trying, I really am. I’m trying to process the last 10 weeks. Trying to get some perspective on it now that I’m done. It already feels like something I did once. Not something I did last week.

Here was the last promo that was put together. It’s a lot like the first one, but with a little more added on. Watch till the end, there a little extra after the pr info.

And, because nothing is more important than tradition, here is the Dog de Mayo:

May Flowers and all that. You know, I remember coming up with some funnier ones that these than we’ve seen so far. I wonder what the hell months they are for, cause May Flowers is boring. Next year I think we’ll do all over the top ones that make no sense whatsoever. We’ll make the dog into modern art. Hell, we could probably then sell him for 3 million bucks.

Screw book tours I’m becoming an impressionist artist.

I loved the video and the extra bit at the end. You are an inspiration!

I ordered my book and Tee the other day, I can't wait to spread the word of Dawn to Canada!

If you are looking for something to do, you can come on up and help paint! Then you could write a book about it too. You could call it "the non-painter's guide to painting your cyber-friend's house" It would be a best seller!

Oh and again, I love yo mama's dog!

Belated welcome home! I was starting to worry, as there was no post for a while. Any hoot, enjoy your kicking back and catching your breath for a while. The video was great and of course I am delighted to have this months "Mom's Dog" picture.

The video was great! If you get on Ellen, I'm so there! :)

I was expecting a Cinco De Mayo dog. This is sort of a Golden Girls dog. Next month will she be a June Bride? The suspense....

the whole walking-with-ellen thing? totally natural.

i like May Flowers Ceramic Dog. and i'm unbelievably impressed with MFCD's ability to resist eating the terribly lifelike bird in the mug o' flowers.
