Holy Shit, I Have Followers?!

Today has been a good day. I wasn't late for work this morning which was a miracle within itself. I am always notoriously late on Mondays. But, for some odd reason, I woke up on time and was in a fabulous mood. This is a rare occasion for me, because I am so NOT a morning person. Especially a MONDAY morning person!

Yesterday, I had been communicating with my dear friend, Shawn Lane, and she had graciously told me about an upcoming book called Car Wash, that is about to be released. Needless to say, I am anxiously awaiting it's release, but for some damn reason the 70's song Car Wash by Rose Royce has stuck in my head. Of course, I have sang it all day long. It has driven my co-workers crazy! One of them tried to bribe me with M&M'S to stop, and quite frankly I found that insulting. For one thing I hate M&M'S (especially the plain ones...yuck!) and another, if she had been serious she knows that I am a skittles and starburst addict, so she could have offered those.

Needless to say, by the end of the day either my co-workers wanted to kill me or were singing it themselves! (Those who were old enough to remember the damn

It's not my fault. I am innocent. I blame everything on Shawn Lane!

Tonight we went to a late supper with Brent and Joshua. Even though it was a late night supper, the restaurant was filled. I was starving when we got there, but by the time we got our food I had somehow lost my appetite. We had a nice time, but suddenly I felt tired and I just wanted to go home. I wanted to change into my comfy flannel pants and old t-shirt and just relax. I think Jack must have felt the same way too, because we really didn't stay out long.

Funny though, once I got home I got a second wind, and here I am probably not making any sense whatsoever on this blog tonight, while Jack is out like a log dreaming of plain M&M's I am sure.

Holy shit, I can't believe I have 3 followers! That is so cool! I feel like a freakin' Rock Star! Woo Hoo!

We didn't get any reading done tonight. I told Jack we must read some tomorrow! It connects us somehow. I can't explain it, but it does. It's good to do things together.

Well, I must get my beauty sleep, or at least try too.

Goodnight Sweethearts,



  1. Hey Shayne..

    I love this post - you are definately feeling your blog (and just your second post)..

    "We didn't get any reading done tonight. I told Jack we must read some tomorrow! It connects us somehow. I can't explain it, but it does. It's good to do things together."

    Such a wonderful phrase and i hope you and Jack get some reading in later on.
    What are you guys reading now..


  2. Hi Shayne and welcome to Blog Mania!!

    I've just started posting on my blog a few days ago also, although so far all I've posted are my thoughts on books I've read as part of a Reading Challenge.

    I also had the same reaction "Holy shit, I can't believe I have followers! That is so cool!" when I saw it.

    I've been addicted to reading since I was a kid and although it's something I usually do by myself, it is nice when the hubby and I are just relaxing in bed together, each lost in our own "book world" yet still together!!
