Like Jan, July is a busy birthday month in the Obenhaus home. And amidst all of these birthdays, I have a rapidly approaching deadline, plus I will be leaving for RWA in New York City one week from today.
It's times like this when multitasking is of the utmost importance.
Sunday was our first-born son's 20th birthday, so why not celebrate it with about 20 guests.
There's nothing quite like making bacon burger patties (recipe here) and typing on you manuscript at the same time. Especially when you have a sneaky husband who decides to take a picture of you while you're doing it. But hey, I was on a roll. And don't worry. No raw meat actually made contact with the keyboard.
My deadline is actually Monday, but I'm praying I can get it in on Friday, which will give me the weekend to prepare for my trip and think about what to do for my mother's birthday the day before I leave. I'll let you know next week if I made it or not.
In the meantime, I've put hubby on notice. He's in charge of dinner this week. I guess that means Cheap Chicken Monday from the grocery store and Taco Tuesday from a local restaurant. After that, who knows what it'll be.
Now, I must bid you ado, but not without showing you a little surprise I found at my local Walmart on Saturday.
August comes early to Texas. And I am in awe of all the fantastic ladies I get to hang out on the shelf with for the next month.
Hubby says you know you've hit the big time when you're book is 25% off. Ha!
