I moved this past weekend. Or I guess I should say I attempted to move. It was mostly successful except that the house I left is still a disaster. I couldn’t sell it and have yet to rent it so why attend to it when I can work on the new place? I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I put in an offer on a short sale in my same neighborhood earlier this year.
It’s exciting to be in a new house that my wife Ashley and I can start our lives together in.
With all the juggling I have been doing I haven’t figured out what I will do with all these books my publisher gave me. What does one do with dozens of books? The majority of my family and friends bought books. So I would like to give some of them away. I will include a bookmark in each of the books I gave away that will be made from my ex-wife’s wedding dress. I wonder if I should disinfect them before I send them to people? Perhaps I will just include a disclaimer to make sure your young ones don’t end up with the bookmark in their mouths and a suggestion to wash your hands after handling it. Or maybe I will laminate them in plastic? Probably not – sounds like work.
So – if you have done anything creative with a wedding dress send me a picture. You can e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you can post the picture on the Facebook page wall. If I like what you did I’ll send you a book.
It was also suggested that I have a contest to guess the weight of my ex-wife’s dress. I’m curious myself to see what it weighs. It’s not light. So – I am going to weigh the dress in the handy sack I store it in (picture below). Come closest to guessing the weight and win a book and potentially hazardous bookmark. Weight will be in pounds rounded to the nearest tenth (example – 14.3 lbs). That contest will run on my Facebook page which can be found here FACEBOOK.
