Forever man.

Jason has viewed the events of the past few days with what I will call "mild amusement".

Also, he's asked me to stop being so shrieky a few times. I think he was starting to get a headache.

Last night as we watched my Amazon sales rank (and let me just recommend NEVER EVER EVER EVER, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD EVER watching your Amazon sales rank should you ever be in the position to do so) he said, "When you're famous are you going to leave us little people behind?"

And I was like, "Little? Dude! You are a really big guy! Have you seen your hands? They make my hands look really, really tiny which is probably one of the reasons I married you!"



No, just lying.



I told him no.


And I sort of snickered about the fact that I guess he still doesn't quite get that all this stuff I do? Is for him. And the Boy Child. And the Girl Child. And even the dog. I love that stupid dog.


So, because I'm generous, I'll share with you all the fact that the book is dedicated to the Boy and the Girl.

And part of the acknowledgment reads:



And finally, to Jason, who stepped into a whirlwind without even meaning to, looked around and decided to stay, I love you and I love us.




And that's all the sap I'm giving for today.

good for you!

So, is writing the acknowledgment/dedication hard? I've thought about that, and were you immobilized by the idea of leaving someone out/pissing someone off? Yours turned out great, by the way.

I just ordered a few copies a few hours ago. Will order more when budget allows. All my gal pals are getting a copy for their birthday this year. Oh my yes!

Now, would you like your big ole spotlight on my blog to me now-ish, or after the release date? =D

I absolutely love that you were posting your Amazon rankings. I would so be doing the same thing but, since my chance of getting a book deal is... pffffftttthhhhzzzzzz. I'll live vicariously through you! :)

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Oh, I drank that sap right up. Congrats on the big excitement, O Deserving One.

Love the dedication! Trust me, your kids will love that the book is dedicated to them. I still point out to people that my mom's books have my name listed on the dedication page! Maybe because that is my only claim to fame....

And...I just pre-ordered my copy!

Rachel said...

That sap just made me tear up a little!

I just pre-ordered one too.

Wenderina said...

God damn it. You made me tear up at the airport. That's way more embarrassing than yelling about underwear in Target.

I mostly married my husband for his hands, too. Best hands in all of the world.
