A Great Deal for TODAY!!

Howdy Folks!  I am on a retreat right now, hopefully having a great time getting to know myself and my God just a little better.  My friend Julie and I have been looking forward to this retreat for quite a while.  I've had it on my "to do" list for at least 10 years, and I am so very excited that Julie and I get to share in this experience together. 

I'm writing this post on Monday.  I haven't packed for my retreat yet, but I am getting ready in other ways.  I have to make a list of all the things I normally do in regards to my kids, so that my mom and dad can replicate them as closely as possible.  I'm exhausted just seeing it in writing!!  The other thing I wanted to prepare was an announcement for you about the book I collaborated on.

As I have mentioned before The Mother of All Meltdowns has been a blast to be a part of!  I have gotten to know 29 other writers much better than I ever expected and I have heard from lots of people who have already read this book and loved it.  I can't wait to get my own copies in the mail!  And I can't wait for you to get a chance to read it, so here's an excerpt:

I quickly called my husband, who did not answer the phone (as is usually the case when I call his cell phone while he’s at work). I shot off an instant message to a co-worker I had previously commiserated with about lack of funds in our respective households: 
          Yes, I yelled at him in all capitals. He was out of his office and didn’t respond either. I was glad my boss (with whom I’m sharing an office for the summer due to construction) was not around. He is a very kind and empathetic man. If he had seen my face at that instant, he would have asked me what was wrong. And then I would have cried all over the office. As it was, I did sit at my desk and fume for quite a while. I did more math with my pretty pink calculator, except this time I wrote numbers on a Post-it note in black ink, instead of purple. Think of that same middle-schooler’s notebook after she gets dumped—the day before prom! ARGH!

I have frequent meltdowns over the state of my bank account, but this one really takes the cake!  Honestly? I am usually pretty laid back and easy going, but in this case, I freaked out and I freaked out good!

Want to know what happens?  I've got good news for you!!  Today you can! You can read this and 29 other stories, as well as help make a dream come true!  If we can collectively get enough people to download a copy of The Mother of All Meltdowns from FOR 99 CENTS, there is a chance that we could hit the Amazon Best Seller's List!

Think of all the things you could buy for 99 cents: gum, a plastic ring out of a vending machine, an app from the app store, a t-shirt from the thrift store

And then don't buy those things!!  Buy my book instead! Today! For 99 cents!!
