The Mother of All Meltdowns

Source
$.99 on Kindle

I was thinking of bloggers and how nice they are collectively.  Of course, if I could get each and every person a little token of happy for the holiday, I would, but I like far too many bloggers to do that, I would absolutely go broke.  ;)  Still, it was a thought and many of you have one or two bloggers you are especially close to, so perhaps this idea would be great for you/them!

A lot of you know Janine from Confessions of a Mommyholic.  Oh my gosh, she's just nice, funny, sincere, AND she's got a piece published in the book, The Mother of All Meltdowns.  The book is a compilation of stories by 30 different writers, all sharing a personal story with you. The book is sure to evoke emotions. It may make you laugh, cry, or find yourself nodding your head in agreement because you can relate.  My favorite part is that each of the writers is also a blogger.  That got me to thinking this would be such a fun gift to give another blogger, if you did have one (or more) on your list that you wanted to give a thank-you to, or simply say Merry Christmas.

Of course it's a read for any adult, not just bloggers, but I thought it would be a nice holiday gesture to send one to another blogger or two.  It's available on Kindle for $.99, or you can buy a hard copy for $9.99. And purchasing one is a great way to show support to the group of bloggers who collaborated to make the book happen, and it's support that can be done for less than a dollar (if you purchase the electronic version). :)

Big kudos to the gals who wrote it, and took the time to have it published.  Wishing you all every good success with your writing endeavors!

Information and purchase information on the book can be found here.

My husband asked me this weekend if I needed a time-out? I said, "Yes please!" During the time he asked me Mica and Isaak refused to get in line for breakfast (breakfast at the Y with Santa). Isaak sat down, and spill his juice right away. I was frustrated beyond what I should have been.

I so need to look at this book. :)

Merry Christmas!

I remember the meltdown days. Not much need for them anymore. I even breezed through the busted water pipes with a certain amount of ease. LOL
Good friend, you are, to promote her book.
