Because Hurricane Ike raised hell through central Ohio yesterday, I have no power at home (I'm at work now). I'm not complaining, seriously - I realize that we are fortunate to only have downed trees and power lines (thankfully, our home is fine, but there's a lot of damage around us) - still nothing compared to the destruction and devastation in Texas. I've decided to postpone drawing a name in the Jill Shalvis giveaway until tomorrow evening and should be posting LuAnn's review and giveaway at the same time.
As incredible as it may seem (or maybe not?), I'll also be drawing a new name on the My Prerogative giveaway. We've realized that Amy has won a copy in another contest and decided it's only fair that I pull another winner - good luck to everyone remaining on the list!! I promise that someone will eventually win this book, dammit!
Have a great evening!

I'm glad you are okay. We had it here bad too. Kids are going to miss school again tomorrow. Thousands still out without power. I got mine back last night. Ours in underground so I think that helped. Spent an hour ordering and getting our food at Taco Bell yesterday and the food places that are open today (which aren't many because the ones that were open ran out) are busy today.

But hey---Golf must go on. The Ryder Cup is still scheduled to be played on time.

Maybe I'll go ahead and email you my address for Sasha's book. *G* heehee!!

Laurie - Glad you're ok! We got a lot of wind - and a little rain- a bit further up north. All this weather is just unbelievable.

Glad you're ok also.

Still can't believe the pics of what damage was caused.

We got a ton of rain, but no lost power. Hugs to everyone suffering the effects.

I'm so glad you and your family are safe, Laurie, and I'm giggling like mad at the ups and downs of this copy of My Prerogative! Hee! Lots to look forward to tomorrow--yay for Jill and LuAnn!

It's good to hear that you weren't hit too hard by Ike and that your family is okay, Laurie. I'm hoping that's going to be the worst of the hurricanes we see this year.

Good luck with the newest My Prerogative winner. :)
