Everneath comes out Tuesday

Brodi's book comes out on Tuesday.

I still remember years ago when Brodi talked about writing a book. I thought it was a great idea. She has always been a great writer (journalism side). I had no idea about the whole process, but I was excited for her to go for it. It has been a long and interesting road. You can read all about the journey HERE

I could go on for pages about it all, but I will keep it short and simple. I am so proud of her. It was difficult. She kept going. She got rejections. She kept going. She felt like giving up at times. She kept going. And now it is out. Now, she has her book coming out. The first of three. And it is being published in many different languages and countries (U.S., Canada, England, Australia, Germany, France, Russia, Poland, Turkey, Brazil, etc.)

Her book has gotten great buzz and I have included a few links to some of the reviews, if you want to read about it.

You can purchase it from Amazon, Barnes and Noble and pretty much any other book store. She will have her book launch from The Kings English on Tuesday at 7pm. Yay Brodi, you totally rock and I am excited to join you on this journey.

All by ourselves

Brodi and I went to a later afternoon movie the other day. This is how you enjoy a movie. Nobody there. This was right at the start of the previews. Totally empty. During the movie, I could yell. We could talk to each other. I could look at my phone. I could get up and dance a little jig. A whole movie theater to ourselves.

Tab me Up!

Ok, I will admit it...I love Tab. Yes, I talk about it quite a bit on my blog. But I could drink this drink just about at anytime and anywhere. The other day, I was looking around on Ebay and you won't guess what I found (actually, you could probably guess based on the picture to the right) but I found Tab glasses. Not just any Tab glasses, but original hourglass figure Tab glasses. From 30+ years ago. In its original boxing and never used. So, at night, I can sit on my couch in style with Tab cola and Tab glasses. You are welcome to come over anytime and help yourself.

Becks turns 6

Beckham is now 6 years old. Crazy. It is nuts that Carter is now 9 and Becks is following right after him. He graduated from pre-school last year (his graduation photo still makes me laugh) and this year he is enjoying Kindergarten this year. He goes to morning kindergarten and an afternoon class...and his friends and classmates sung to him at both places. He was thrilled. He even got a stylish hat that he wore all day long.

He is a great kid. If you have met Becks, you probably love him. He is our happy little boy. He is our quiet little boy. He is a boy of few words. He loves going to school. He loves coming home and sitting at his own desk so that he can do math equations and puzzles. If he had scissors, tape, glue, paper and markers...he could be entertained for hours. If he is not doing art and crafts, he loves to ride his scooter, play with the hose, play video games, kick the soccer ball around, watch Spongebob or jumping on the trampoline. He also loves to climb in our bed in the morning to hang out and wake us up.

I can't believe how fast time goes. I love it and I hate it. But I am enjoying the time to see this little kid turn in to a big boy. Happy Birthday Becks!
