Filed Under (day to day, good things, writing) by Rachel on 12-07-2008

I’ve been trying to come up with a great title or a great entry. But I’m too excited.

Yesterday was one of the Best Days Ever.

Started with finally finding the connector between my iPod and laptop. With all the traveling I’m doing it’s becoming more important.

That happiness was quickly surpassed when I got an email and phone call from my Literary Agent. Squeeeeee! The dairy-free book that was discussed months and months ago based on some of my recipes is finally going through!!! It will be finished by mid-December. Eeeeep!

My mind is reeling. I’m far too excited. I was jumping up and down and squealing a lot. :) Then got to have Baja Fresh for dinner, and a couple fizzy lemonades to celebrate.

I also have 2 moderately successful shirt.woot derby entries – a puppy in the top 25 and heart balloons in the top 40. If you’ve ever bought anything from woot, you can vote.

To top off the day, I ended up getting a bag of crap from woot! :)

No way another day can compete! But here’s hoping for another good one, with plenty for me to squeal about and giving my grandmothers something else to brag about.

Is it okay for me to be the TEENSIEST bit jealous of your book deal, even though I was the one that put you in touch with the book people in the first place? ;D I WILL buy a copy, but you have to autograph it for me.

Hey, jealousy is the name of the game when you’re a writer and another writer gets a book deal. Even when you are the writer-mom of the writer.
Follow that?
Anyway: Squeeeeeeeeeeee! Congratulations!
