I’m dealing with mountains of boxes and trying to blend my life with my Bookstore Beau now that I’ve moved to Colorado Springs and deal with contractors and insurance adjusters to get our home repaired!
I am so grateful for the help of the book community and all the authors and readers who have helped me smile and just keep breathing. Kathy Bryson definitely made me smile!
She shares some of her housing calamities and tips for dealing with the restoration. I’m going to take her advice! *nods* Enjoy and make sure you take a look at her novel Restless Spirits and enter my Saving The Book Tart From Moving Madness! She’s added an ecopy of Restless Spirits too! 😀

John commented on the décor when he stopped by after school. I stood up from painting the wood paneling where it met the inside of the staircase, stepped back to check my work, and bumped into him. “It looks nice,” John said simply, catching my elbow and steadying me.
“Thanks.” I smiled at him. Standing one step up, I was eye level with John. It was a potentially intimate moment, and I watched him carefully to see some spark of interest, but I was disappointed. He examined the stairwell, frowning, and didn’t seem aware of me at all, but his next statement seemed genuinely remorseful.
“I’m sorry I can’t be here to help more. You’re getting stuck with the painting after all.”
I shrugged. “It was inevitable. I did something bad in a previous life.”
