I wanted to tell you about something that I did last week but haven't gotten to it till now.
Wonder why? I guess getting ready to relocate could keep me busy.
Last Tuesday, May 25 I went with my friend Lorraine to Manalapan, New Jersey to a book signing by Debbie Macomber.
Here's a picture:

Debbie was so friendly to! I brought along a book of hers that I had at home and she signed that to. The book I brought is called Knit Together and it is a non fiction book about finding and using your talents for God. I admitted to her that I'd like to write a book someday and she was so encouraging. She gave me her card and said to write to her and she would help me get started. Can you believe that? Now of course she had a stack of business cards on the table for anyone to take and her email is right on the card so I guess anyone could email her if they wanted. But she specifically handed me one and said "write me". Her publicist also gave me the website of Debbie's publisher to check out for guidelines.
I don't know if people tell her all the time that they want to write and she says the same thing, but it made me feel special anyway.
I have yet to write to her. I think I will do that today.
Again, I've been a little busy. My husband and I went to Lynchburg this past weekend and had a whirlwind tour of rental properties. We found a lovely 3 bedroom 3 bath townhouse with a finished basement/family room right in the Wyndhurst development. Wyndhurst is similiar to the Celebration development in Disney World. It is completely self contained with everything within walking distance. It is very nice and I'm sure we will be very comfortable there. I don't think I'd like to stay there permanently but it will do for now.
My husband officially starts his new job on Monday. We will all be down there together by July 1st.
He's going down tonight to meet his new boss and then tomorrow he will sign the lease.
I've more packing to do.
