* IF IT'S TUESDAY, I'M MIXED UP AS USUAL *

For the past year or more, I always seem busier on Mondays than any other day. And so, when Monday evening rolls around, I feel like I've done two days worth of tasks, and I ask The Ronald, "Is today Tuesday?" To which he has a variety of answers, some of which I won't post here. (Tsk, tsk. Don't automatically think they must include bad language or something. Get your minds out of the gutter!)

~~~

This afternoon, I really have no idea what day it is. I've spent approximately SEVEN HOURS attempting to "fix" my printer/copier. Yes. Seven hours. And it's still not "fixed." I think I'm going to have to buy a new one. (Don't even ask. My reply might send electrical shock waves through the cyberspace.)

~~~

I do want to say that I'm being featured in kind of a blog tour for my memoir, and I thank the following three women with all my heart:

Tomorrow, December 11th, the lovely Julie Flanders is hosting me. Please stop by and leave a comment for Julie and/or me. 

Monday, December 16th, the always lovely Jennifer Shirk will be my host. Please stop by there, too let Jennifer know you were there.

And on Monday, December 23rd, the ever so lovely Margo Dill will have a little something about me, too. And again, I ask, please stop by and leave a comment. My appearance on Margo's blog has been postponed until January 20, 2014. I'll post a reminder when the date gets closer. Thanks, Margo!

** P.S. After I posted this I found out that Ann, at Ann's Reading Corner, also highlighted my memoir in her Teaser Tuesday post! Thank you, Ann! **

*Welcome to my newest follower, Carol Ford. I hope you'll stop by often and always enjoy what you read and see! Thank you so much! *

    1. Hi Linda! Thanks for stopping by. My printer problem appears to be the print head which means I might as well buy another printer....ugh...
      And yes, please do stop by Julie's blog when you can!

  6. It's a pleasure to host you today, Becky!! Thanks for the mention and for your kind words. So sorry about the printer!! I cringe at the thought of even trying to fix anything computer-related, I am hopeless and it's always the biggest nuisance on earth. Hope this is fixed soon for you.

    1. Hi Julie! Thank you again! And yes, I hate any "technology" type problems. Goes all the way back to how inept I was in many math problems when I was in school! :)

  7. Hi Becky,

    Thanks for stopping by Fiction Books earlier today (now is it Tuesday or Wednesday??). To be honest I have been so busy at work today, in the build up to Christmas, that I have no real idea what day it is and I don't really care any more!

    I have been reliably informed that today is 11/12/13 and that it is Friday the 13th this week, just to add to the chaos!

    I am so pleased to meet you and to have found your site. I love your style of blogging, so I shall be stopping by as often as I can,

    Yvonne.

    1. Hi Yvonne! How funny about what day or time it is! AND I just knew you lived somewhere other than the US, because the way we write our dates are different. For today, we say 12/11/13. Talk about REALLY being confused, that would be me if/when I'm traveling!! Thanks for stopping and leaving a comment, and I do hope you come back often!

  11. Sorry I haven't been more helpful. I'm so busy that it's all I can do to put up a recycled poem once a week.

    I'll try to do better after the new year!

    1. Hi Jennifer! Yes, seven hours....which includes "down time" while I was going through all the stuff the online "expert" had me doing. If my oldest son was in town, I could've gone to him, but alas, he's traveling this week. I can't wait for him to come home! He's my tech guy! :)

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
