Beyond Exhaustion

Maven Jacqueline BarbourMade it home from Dallas around 9:30 this morning. After a brief scare, I discovered the airline hadn't lost my suitcase containing (prepare to squee!) my autographed copy of the ARC of Lisa Kleypas's Mine Till Midnight (the fifth "Wallflower" book).

I am more tired than I've ever been in my life. (I pulled an involuntary all-nighter last night after staying up until 3:00 and then not being able to fall asleep before I had to get up at 5:45 to make my flight.)

I think it's quite possible that I had more fun than I have ever had in my life. And I totally didn't expect that. I'd love to share more about why the whole thing was so spectacularly awesome, but I'm too exhausted to be coherent and, what's more, I have to throw a sleepover birthday party for my ten-year-old son. (Hey, I didn't KNOW I'd only sleep 10 hours over the four nights I was in Dallas when I agreed to this plan!)

Catch y'all on Tuesday, though I'm sure Erica will beat me to lots of the fun news on Monday!

I'm back! I'm back!

Nothing to add yet myself. Just trying to get to bedtime...What fun!!! Too much fun!! I'm with you--probably the most fun I've had in my ENTIRE life. And I had a lot of fun last year so that's saying something :-)

10 hours in 4 days....hey, sounds like my younger days (way, way younger!)
