How I Prepare for Book Launch Day

So today is book launch day in Ottawa for Sins of the Son! Woot!

I can’t tell you how excited I am to be celebrating my second book to hit bookstore shelves. How awesomely cool is that? 🙂

One would think that I’d be in celebratory mode all day, because this is truly a BIG EVENT in my life. So how am  going to celebrate, you ask? I’m going to clean house, of course. Yeah, seriously. Having done little more than give the place a lick and a promise for the last two weeks, it really needs work. Especially since we’re having our two oldest daughters and their significant others over for dinner before the launch and one of those SOs has nasty allergies to dust and pets (you know about my mini zoo, right?).

Speaking of dinner,  I’ll be making that, too. And not just any dinner, but a fairly fancy one as we weren’t able to have Easter dinner last weekend (exam time for one daughter) and I promised to do one this weekend.  (Yes, I may be slightly off my rocker.)

I also need to: do a manicure to eradicate signs of this week’s gardening efforts, do laundry so I have something to wear, shower & get ready, run to the store for paper plates & napkins, pick up the cheese & antipasto trays, and be at the launch for 6:30 to set up.

But how hard can it be when I’ll be walking on air all day? 😉

Happy weekend, everyone!
