Just a thought... A plan is what, a schedule is when. It takes both a plan and a schedule to get things done. [Peter Turla]
I don't even know where to start.
As I write this, I have just finished two phone interviews (CKWS in Kingston and PostMedia with Kevin Connor) having changed clothes, re-upped my morning makeup and done three TV interviews all before 10 am.
I'm going to be picked up by noon, hit CTV for E Talk with Ben Mulroney, spend some time with the ladies of The Social (which aired at 1 pm yesterday) and then off to two events with Rogers including an Up Close & Personal with Maureen Holloway! That's just today. My hope is for more than six hours' sleep tonight.
It was a day I'll never forget - it's been a memorable week - and I hope to find time to pull out my handwritten journal to make notes that I can look back on when all of this slows down a bit. I'm prepared for the crash when Monday comes and we're on our way back to Victoria (not literally, of course, but you know what I mean).
Today, WEATHER PERMITTING ARGHHHHHHH!, we'll do a morning visit to CTV in Agincourt for Bev Thomson, then back downtown to Indigo at noon (First Canadian Place) and on to Oshawa. Then we drive at 10 pm to the airport, drop off the rental and catch a few hours at the hotel there before a 7 am flight to Ottawa.
Yep - I'm staying healthy. Tired, but healthy!!!!
I had to laugh yesterday. Two things jumped out at me. First, these Indigo sales rankings. I knew from visiting a store Monday that Mourning Has Broken would be placed on the Bestseller wall yesterday. As if that isn't enough, I saw the Amazon online sales and...
Somewhere in there I sit next to Michelle Obama (in the second set of numbers). That's enough for me.
But what's hilarious is that my friend Lisa sent me a notice she got, also from Amazon.
What do these books have in common? Well, silly, they're all about my life!
First, my book. Then A Girl Named Lovely, which is how I would describe Lauren. Finally, a book that describes me! LOL, I had to share that as I scurry around.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a change of clothes to pack for my visit with Maureen (you'll hear clips of it on the CHFI Morning Show today) and we'll just keep going. My sweet and tough publicist Melissa just points us in the right direction and we get there on time and ready to shine.
Wow. I don't know if I'll ever get a chance to do this again, so I'm soaking it all in. Thanks for sharing the ride.
Oh, by the way, we've just learned that there are some tickets available for my appearance in conjunction with the Ottawa Writers' Festival tomorrow evening. If you're in the Ottawa area reading this (or within driving or train distance) you may be interested in this link. We'd LOVE to see you there and give you a big hug!
