We got home around 10pm on Monday night. Tuesday morning I left for Grand Rapids to go to Sarah Palin's book signing. So it went like this, I just stayed up and went to the bookstore around 11:45pm to get in line to get a wrist band. It was soooo cold. My 83 year old dad gave me his snowmobile clothes and boots to wait in the cold all night. This turned out to be genius, and I was never cold at all!! In fact when the personal summers began I had to take off my scarf! We got to go into the mall around 5:30am and the bookstore opened around 7am. They let 25 people in and I was in the second set of 25 to get in. I got my wrist band and was leaving the store when a woman stopped me and asked to see my band and what it said. Turns out she is a reported for the Detroit Free Press so she interviewed me. The article is here if you want to read about it. I am exhausted! Unfortunately, the second line is first come first served too which is kind of stupid and gives no real advantage to the people that stayed out in the cold all night. But whatever, I waited all night what's a few more hours to meet one of my idols! I am so excited!!
I have photos of it all but will upload them, in reality, tomorrow. Along with all the rest of the trip pics and the pics of the quilt stuff I bought. I'm going to shower, and put on some nice clothes and some makeup so I don't look like a total skank. Then I will take DD1 out to lunch and back in line for me. There are not photos allowed but someone from this deal will be photographing and posting to a Flickr account.
More later, sleep and shower are in order now!
