In case the title of this blog didn’t clue you in, I’m a bit distracted these days. You would think that having a new book flying off the virtual shelves and bringing books 1 AND 3 with it would be the distraction of which I speak. (Type?) But you’d be wrong.
Normally, this would be the case. I wouldn’t be able to get anything else done because I’d be watching numbers and writing guest blogs and totally spaced out staring and drooling on my book covers. But life these days is anything but normal (understatement of the year) so what is hogging my focus right now is something that most would consider dull. Maybe even more of an annoyance.
I’m getting new carpet!!
I know. Weird, right? WHY would I be excited about this? Let me explain. Is too much (to quote Inigo), let me sum up. Last year, my household experienced what I unaffectionately call the water curse of ought 12. (Just go with it.) Between February and August there were three, count ’em THREE, major water leaks in my house, resulting in all the flooring on the bottom level being ripped out. The result has been kiddo and I (and various pets) living with concrete floors.
The tile was installed during the big concert week (because I must complicate my life to the Nth degree) and the carpet arrives tomorrow. I CANNOT WAIT. It’s a simple thing, I know. Many people have carpet. It’s not that special. And it’s going to be a pain finding a place to stage all the furniture for the install. But it’s still going to be an awesome day because WE WILL HAVE CARPET!
Okay. I might be a leetle too excited. And in case you think I’ve completely forgotten about the books, I am also very excited to announce all three Anchor Island books are currently sitting in the top 800 rankings on Amazon. Which is AWESOME and I can’t thank the readers enough. (Which reminds me, sign up for my newsletter today (if you haven’t already) because I am giving away some great stuff to one lucky subscriber this month.) (Did I just do parenthesis inside parenthesis? Yes, I did. Is parenthesis the plural of parenthesis? Probably not.)
So thanks! Also, CARPET!
Your turn. Got any home disaster or renovation stories? (Did I mention I just finished painting my living room? It’s going to be so pretty! With CARPET!)
