    I can SOOOOOO relate! I too am trying to get out the door tomorrow for a trip… with FOUR boys under the age of ten in tow, one a 6 month old infant. Yes, they’re all mine.

    Who said it was a vacation again? Sure doesn’t feel like one.

    That’s why I take the OCD meds.  I’m allergic to alcohol (No really.  I am.  How sucky is THAT, I ask you?)  or it would be alcohol city for me baybee!  My life is such a stress fest that I totally turned OCD.

    Okay, packing for four would make me curl into a sobbing, quivering mess. Especially trying to pack for myself on top of it. Btw, Chris, welcome 🙂 I wandered over to your blog and read your police story. Holy crap, that woman should be shot!

    Annmarie, I’m going to have two drinks tonight, one just for you. I cannot imagine being allergic to alcohol!

    Where’s the husband? Give him a job. :whip:

    Alcohol is our friend–especially on days like this. And just think, in a few days all this will be a memory.

    Everything will be fine. :pray:

    Where’s the husband? HA… “Honey, have you seen my…’insert appropriate article that can’t be done without here’?” I end up doing the packing anyway, it’s actually less stressful for me to do it.

    Thanks, Angela, it’s helped a lot that I’m not the only one completely non-plussed by her reaction. I can’t laugh about it… yet.

    My husband is the bomb-diggity, y’all. He worked just as hard as I did yesterday to get laundry and things done around the house. He’s always been like that–doing equal if not more than his share of the house stuff.

    Good news is, we’re 3/4 packed. Bad news is, that last 1/4 still feels like a lot so maybe it’s more like 1/2 😉

    Here’s hoping things are looking better in the light of (Monday) morning…If not, there’s always tequila.

    Awww, come on, a little alcohol never hurts. I did most of my apartment packing under the influence of Applebeetinis. It was the only way I could do it. 🙂

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
