Unpacking the past


Amidst lice alerts, Libby Lu, missing grooves, house hunting, there was a celebratory "first" for the Mater this past week.

I became a published author. My first paid gig!

A regional paper, The Women's Times, asked to use one of my former blog essays as part of their October edition. They even had an illustration drawn to fit the piece. I, of course, scooped up any copies I could find.

Nothing like basking in one's 15 minutes of fame, eh?

Woo hoo--that's great! Is it posted online somewhere, where those of us not in the area can read it? Or can you direct us back to the blog post from which it is taken?

Make that 25 minutes of fame, because for the last ten minutes Bossy has been glowing with your news.
It just doesn't get any better, right? (Well maybe a little better... book contracts, multi-city book signings and all - but still - P-U-B-L-I-S-H-E-D!)
