Warp drive? Engaged!

It's been that kind of week. My daughter and her family are coming to visit for the weekend. And of course, anytime company comes there are a load of things to accomplish. Cleaning is the least of it, right?

When the kids all move out, you just naturally find uses for the spare rooms. One is our laundry room... and the other one is my closet. Well, not this weekend. So today we went to do laundry. Now I just have to find a place to put the clean clothes. Then there are the other things to park somewhere. Files, books, notebooks... My problem is once I put something out of sight, I never seem to find it again. Am I the only one like that? I feel so lonesome when everyone else is ferociously organized.

Next we'll need to grocery shop. Food for six is a little different than food for two. And this week is my daughter's birthday so we need a cake. Maybe the househunk will bake that.

On Friday night (the night that they're arriving) I have a three hour chat at Ellora's Cave chat loop. Then on Saturday night I have a three hour chat at Night Owl Romance chat loop. I sure am glad that the househunk has breakfast planned! He's good with breakfast and I suck at it because it takes me so long to get moving in the morning. I'm not a morning person... except for this week.

Woo-hoo! On Friday, Kama Sutra Lovers will be released from Ellora's Cave. As part of the celebrations for our new releases, Amarinda and I are launching The Amarinda and Anny Contest

What could be better than kicking back with a good book? Winning two books - one from Amarinda Jones – Knock Three Times and one from Anny Cook – Kama Sutra Lovers. Fantastic. You want more? Be the envy of all with two hand made hair piks to adorn your locks. But wait – there’s even more! How about munching on a delicious care pack of Aussie treats? One lucky reader will win all of this.

How do you win this fantastic prize? Go to and and answer an easy question -

If trapped on a deserted island what two things could Anny and Amarinda not live without? The answers can be found on the websites. As soon as you have them email with your answers – there will be 4 in all.

The contest starts 18th July and closes midnight 23rd July 2008 (USA EST). The first correct entry drawn at random will win the prize. Good luck.



  1. Company is fun, but a lot of prep work. Congrats on the upcoming release and good luck with the cleaning!

  2. Oooh. I still can't believe you're doing chats in the midst of chaos!!! I shall pray for you sister Anny.

    Can't wait for your release. I predict a big day of sales for you.

  3. Lol..You're not the only one who has out of sight/looses mind. My husband doesn't understand why I keep so much stuff out. I hope your family time goes well. My uncle and his family fly out here tomorrow,they're staying at a hotel,but we will be running around with them over the next week. :)

    Hugs, Danette

  4. That's great your family is coming and so looking forward to Kama Sutra Lovers

  5. Ferociously organinzed? Hahaha, not me. Don't be lonesome.

    Mm, a househunk who bakes. Doesn't get much better than that.

  6. It never fails: I clean my desk and lose almost everything, because I reorganized it! Glad I'm not the only one:)

  7. Organization? What's that?

    I hope you have a wonderful time with your family - give your grand-daughters lots of squeezy hugs - they're just so darn cute!

  8. Ah, ladies. Y'all do my heart good. Thank you so much for cheering me up!

  9. Hang in there. Family will be outta your hair soon but after you enjoy each other. You're a great mom, Annycoo, and a great grandmother person.
