Winner of That Baby Woke Me Up, AGAIN: Deanne Humphrys-Dunne.
Congratulations! Thanks to all who commented, and a big thanks to everyone who follows this blog!
Now for the story:
"Woman!" my husband said. "Happy Mother's Day!"
I looked at the man. "Why, thank you, but Mother's Day isn't until Sunday."
"I know. But I got you a present."
"What?" I asked.
"It's in the driveway."
Since last year he got me a toilet for Mother's Day, I figured this would probably be just as good. "What is it? A pile of horse manure?" I asked.
He laughed. "Close!"
I went outside to have a look. Do you know what it was? Nine cubic yards of steaming hot mulch!
"Gee, thanks," I said.
He walked back in the house. "Have fun with it!"
(In all fairness, my husband did give me a spa gift certificate last year in addition to the toilet. And he didn't make me install it. But I did have to help haul it to the curb!)
Okay - one more thing: I'm a guest over at VS Grenier's Blog, Indie and Debut Author Interviews. If you'd like to read about my book, That Baby Woke Me Up, AGAIN, please stop by!
